samurai comnversion

I live in south Texas and I'm rebuilding a 87 samurai and stuck on which diesel to use. I liked the 1.9 be but everyone wants 2200 for a complete motor. Next is the 4bt and I heard of bad driving characteristics. So now I'm leaning towards a Mercedes 5cyl but still doing research. I plan to run on diesel, motor oil and vegetable oil. I also plan for it to be a daily driver and it has a lift and mud tires and I may go bigger. It will never see rocks just mud or sand on occasion. The engine also needs to have a little grunt to it (hense why I only mentioned the vw 1.9 and not the 1.6) but I'm open to suggestions.
