    You are right! /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    I have a 6.2 I am seriously thinking about transplanting, but I am impressed with your torque numbers! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    What was the "other" diesel that supposedly came in some Chevy vans?


    Thanks!

    By the way, I am doubting those numbers, not that I feel it's not that strong, but comparing to other similarly sized engines. So in a couple of weeks once I readjust valves, clean up the intake tubes and change the oil, I will dyno it.
    Will come back here and give the rear wheel numbers.
    It will be on 35" tires and 3.08 gears. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
