    Any one transplanted a 4bt or 4bta into a K5? I read that if you get the engine and tranny from a Frito Lay bread van it is almost a bolt in. I would then run biodiesel at a cost savings. Would be a great swap. These engines are pricy and only 4cyl. The 6cyl might be overkill and not get as good mpg.

    I have thought about getting one for my 70k5 but haven't done the research. I know it has been discussed on here before. Have you tried using the search??

    To bad there isn't a diesel forum on this site, something like that might come in handy :surepal: :ignore: ;)
