    Belive it or not RB found that engine in a Izuzu Box truck of all things. It was wrecked beond repair but the engine was not damaged.
    I knew GM was inbed with Izuzu on the Duramax but didn't know they put GM engines in their Box Trucks:rolleyes:
    Great job RB:bow: :bow: :bow:

    If it was in an Isuzu box truck I'm pretty sure that would make it an LQ4, I could be wrong though.

    Either engine is awesome just the LQ4 has slightly lower compression.

    Tell RB to keep an eye out for another one for me.:D
