K5\'s and torque This stems from a debate that me and a buddy at work have. I have considered swapping in a Cummins or CAT diesel into my '85. He thinks that there will be way to much torque. He thinks that there is no way you would be able to reinforce the frame to handle it. While the new Cummins that Dodge is using is rated at 305hp and 555 foot pounds of torque. I think getting a Cummins out of an older Dodge would be a lot milder. On the flip side I know some of you out there have some serious horsepower and torque being produced by your engines. So my question is do you think a K5 could handle a torque of big diesel? Assuming that the axles and so forth are up to snuff. How much ponies and twist does our rig produce?
