    what would it take to get a nv 4500 with either my old 208 or a 241 in my burb??? is there a flywheel already out there.. Like a 88 to 92 swap????
    for some reason I got a wild hair to do a swap in my burb although the 400-208 is problem less so far.


    which would be better for towing?
    how much $$$ am I looking at for the swap?
    would the diesel like the auto or the manual better?

    Well 1 of my K30 's came factory with a 6.2 and a 4 speed - sm465 - 205 combo
    so must be all good and the dodges come with the cummings nv4500 and the 205 so it must be a option 4 em at least
    and i would think it all depends on what u want naturally a manuel is gonna out pull - tow a auto trany any day of the week from my experience
    good luck u got lots of work ahead of yea :-)
