    Has anyone ever performed a swap with a 6.5 turbo for their old 6.2? Does the 6.5 just bolt in? What's to be done about the possibility of the 6.5 having newer electronics?

    The swap should be a direct bolt in. If you are wanting to keep it mechanical instead of going with the computer controlled, I believe all you have to do is use a mechanical (or aftermarket electric) fuel pump and the mechanical controlled injector pump. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    I think there is an issue with the 6.5L exhaust manifolds in the older frames. Maybe someone else has more/better info...

    I remember hearing something about the turbo not clearing the ac stuff. Hope it helps Mike

    Maybe try looking for a transplant out of a diesel van, much more likely to clear the A/C stuff... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
