alright so ive been wanting a diesel for awhile now after driving the duramax around:read: i know back in 94 some of the 1/2 ton trucks came with the 6.5L turbo Diesel from the factory. so i got thinking to day how hard would it be to do this swap? would it bolt right in? im quessing it wouldnt. i can get a whole motor and computer for like 3k or so but would my 5 speed bolt right up to it? if you could answer any of my questions thatd be awesome!!:head:

my buddy had a 1/2 ton with the 6.5 turbo and it was garbage. Felt like it had a 2.2 4cyl untill you hooked up to a load, even then it wasn't very impressive.

And it would be a real BITCH to swap in a 6.5
