    Re: 6.2 / 6.5 Head Swap ???

    My new years resolution is to buy a couple of memberships for some of the diesel guys we lost when we went full membership. Arveetek is at the top of my personal list. I like to one stop shop...and in the past haven't had any trouble getting all the info I needed right here.

    You have a pm.

    What I'd like to do is start a thread here asking for nominations for membership. I want to see who everyone else thinks should get the orange touch first.

    I agree on your guy, and I would donate one membership too, I just need to go through the threads to remember who deserves it.
    As for the original Q?
    The 6.2 block can be used with the 6.5 heads, and even more, if you use the 6.2 from the transitionning years (90's ??? ) you can bore it out to 6.5l, someone already did that, I can't remember where i read it though Diesel page or some other website...
    Hey Doc

    If you want to donate a starter, I will take and give a membership in return for you. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
