    Where to buy remanufactured or performance 6.2\'s

    Howdy fellas. I'm seriously considering ditching my camaro 350 for a diesel. A 6.2 with a turbo or even a 6.5 turbo(if its not computer controlled and if I can afford it) is what I'm looking for. Who sells remanufactured 6.2's and 6.5's? Any other info would be great. Thanks.

    Evan

    Yes, I will second that. Jamie at Diesel Depot is the best with GM diesels.

    For $600, I've got an 83 K5 w/ a running 6.2 you could buy.

    Is it driveable?
    Can it make a 1200-1500 mile trip to Sacramento CA?

    NO - the tranny is fried (700R4) and the t-case was removed. However, the motor does run.

    Then if I do get it it has to be towed.
    Maybe if I find a good deal on a trailer in CO and want to go there to pick it up, I can load the truck on it and make one good trip.
    I will keep you updated.

    No problem. However, even if it goes to the scrsp yard for metal, it's goona be gone as soon as I can find the time. The sad thing is it isn't in that bad of shape. I personnal think it'd make a great off-raod vehicle. By trimming a little, there would be NO rust. I just have too many things (83 K5, 84 K5, 85 K30, 88 1 ton Burb, 97 Chevy Conv Van, 95 GEO Tracker, 97 S-10 work truck, 80 travel trailer, & a 4x8 tariler) on my 1/4 acre property /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif & my wife's not real happy about the Fred Sanford look!!!
