Nope, but I wonder what it would sound like for a diesel to have a high lift/duration cam at idle


coolest sounding diesel (at least to me) is the Banks Duramx racing engines.





good job on your project

I really like RCSB trucks with diesels

I'd love to do a duramax, lack of funds puts a damper on that dream.

The more I toss around the TPI swap idea the more money it's gonna cost.

Sticking with a 6.2 swap....

Oh definitely stick with the 6.2....... and keep the updates coming.

Someday I'd like to put a 6.2/6.5 in a 68-72 El Camino.

Pulled my rear cover today, and found I have 2:56 desert gears.
Had to believe that's the ratio,
But I counted the teeth twice just to make sure.

Here are the number on the ring gear

GM 1235401 16 41 11 83
