    See now K30, it wouldn't cost you $50 bucks to drive to the edge of KS IF you kept the 6.2. LOL

    Hardy har har! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Now try to make the drive to the edge of KS with the 6.2 in the back of the bed!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif That's how I got the truck, with the motor in the bed. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif (probably the best place for these motors anyways! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif)

    Easy there, killer... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    They do get awesome mileage, ask anyone here. I'll say this... This K5 is the first diesel pickup I've ever owned, and I'll NEVER go back to a gasser, EVER.

    LMAO!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Nah, I'm just waiting for the right K30 someday with a 6.2 to use as my work/tow/haul/parts chaser truck. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif I have heard about these motors and the mileage they get.

    Just when it comes to hard, serious playing and driving, I prefer the 454 anyday. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Even a mildly built 454 will have more power than a NA 6.2.

    Take that a step down calicide/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif. Even a Stock 454 will have more power then a stock NA 6.2.

    Re: Ok, you diesel freaks...here are some pics!

    Yup, no arguement here. 454s are sweet powerplants. I just don't like the idea of single digit MPG figures when they're really getting into the powerband.

    A turbo is in my K5's future. I won't have to worry about power envy for very long... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Re: Ok, you diesel freaks...here are some pics!

    I don't know the torque specs off the top of my head so I hedged a little bit. Even though a big block does make more power, I still don't want one. I like driving for a few weeks on one tank of fuel and still having the torque to easily keep up with traffic even with 37" tires.

    What with the carb and the distributor, it takes so much work to keep a gas engine running it's a wonder why anyone even bothers....

    6.2 diesel, 120 hp and 240 ft lbs or torque, pretty sickly actually.

    Re: Ok, you diesel freaks...here are some pics!

    Banks turbo'd 6.2L makes something like 200hp and 350-400ft/lbs of torque measured at the rear wheels./forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    HP like a fuel injected 350, torque like a big block, gas mileage like a small V6./forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    And how much does a Banks turbo system cost. Last time I checked about 2000 bucks, way too rich for my blood.

    Re: Ok, you diesel freaks...ONE LAST TIME!!!

    UPDATE!! I want this motor GONE!!! I want anybody interested in parts off of this motor to make offers. If no offers, it's going to the junk yard and I will put sand in the motor just so no one can try to use it.

    BTW, the radiator and shroud are probably already sold.

    If you feel like donating to the charity of Paul(it's a registered charity up here.......I PROMISE!!!!)/forums/images/icons/wink.gif, I'll pay for the shipping if you want to send the injection pump and injectors to me.

    I wish I was closer, Wes. If I was I'd come and take the sucker off your hands!!!!/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    And I'd offer to pay you for the parts if the godamn exchange rate wasn't so shitey right now/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    I will go down on the asking price if that would help on the crappy exchange rate.

    Check your PM.

    ps - I have a 6.2 and like it, but I'm not going to argue that it's better than a 454..LOL. If I had the time and money to swap in a mildly built TBI 454 that 6.2 would be gone!

    Re: Ok, you diesel freaks...here are some pics!

    $1600-1800 depending on area. If you pay $2000, which is full retail, you're getting taken. Installation can be done in your garage with common tools.

    How much would a gasser SBC or BBC cost to build up to the aforementioned numbers? Would either get near as close in gas mileage? Nope.

    Re: Ok, you diesel freaks...here are some pics!

    Those are pretty close to what my engine makes completely stock. 240HP and 385ft/lb of torque. that is not rear wheel though. give me just a cam and i could probably get there.
