    I am planning on building a truck from the ground up using a 6.2 with a banks sidewinder turbo. Any input on good sources for rebuild parts, tips for building the motor with a turbo in mind?

    [/ QUOTE ]If you are rebuilding the 6.2 for a turbo, it would be good to use the low compression pistons, 18:1 is better than the 21:1 stock.
    As for parts, I have no idea but I will wait for the answer, I want to do that too.

    Northern Auto has good prices on kits. Also cruise ebay, if you are patient you can get some good deals. Pistons and rings are several times more expensive than gas engines...get ready for sticker shock.
