    This may seem like a silly question, but the 6.2 has the same bolt pattern as any other gm v8 right? so for instance i could just toss the 350 from my "little" crew cab and bolt up a 6.2 in its stead using the existing tranny? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    One thing though, you need to get the right flexplate (auto) or the right flywheel (manual) but the tranny will bolt up.
    And for the auto you need to get the right governor and the right torque converter to get the best driveability.

    The flexplate from a 6.2 400 trans has a large weight on it that the gas ver does not have. In clutches, the dual-mass flywheel had some serious problems. GM sells a kit to replace it.
