    How's this for a GM diesel?
    1978 K30 crew cab, stock exterior with a funky diesel idle.
    It has a 6V-71 Detrioit Diesel and 5sp clark trans with divorced t-case.
    Definitely way cool /forums/images/icons/grin.gif !

    I can not see any pics!?
    What is that? Is this engine a stock one from a truck? Have you some specs?

    I am dreaming to do a swap with a real truck engine from Mercedes R6 with 391ci, 279hp at 2300rpm and 815lbs-ft between 1250 and 1500rpm. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Unable to get any pics this weekend. Working too much overtime and trying to get a pole barn built, to hide my suburban from the snow and salt this year /forums/images/icons/grin.gif !
