Default building a home built experimental airplane and want to put a diesel

tom laudato in california usa
I am building a home built experimental airplane and want to put a diesel engine in this airplane.....i need 125 hp or so and know the engine weight is going to be about 100 lbs more when the cloud clears.....i can accept that..

I have decided i want to have the basic diesel engine with no electronics of any kind only the turbo and injector pump....keeping it as simple as i can for reliability.....
So far i have been advised that i should be looking for a 1Z or AHU engine and an injector pump from the AAZ engine and the turbo from either engine can be adapted by some magic.....
Can you guys with experience tell me if this is the right direction and what year cars/models would i be looking for to get these parts.....
I also would greatly appreciate any advice where to get these engine..
is there a car running this type of configuration where i can just buy the car and rebuild the engine

What is an AAZ/AHU/1Z engine? Where can they be found?
