Turbo & Serp from 6.5L

I have opportunity to strip a '93 K2500 6.5L before the truck goes to the scrapyard. The engine and tranny are bad. Engine was ran low on oil.

I wanted to pull the turbo and exhaust manifold off it for possible use on my '83 6.2L Suburban. Any reason not to do that, and should I grab any other parts before the truck goes away?

Now that I think about it, could I use the 6.5L components to give the 6.2 a serpentine belt setup?

The parts all swap over.....why not pull the motor and keep it ? In a "93", should be a 599 casting. You will need the drivers exhaust manifold and the crossover and downpipe as well. Being a 93 TD, it will have a .310" plunger injection pump, keep it also, if you desire more fuel for the turbo setup. The heads have the "T stamped pre-cups in them, another item for better fuel delivery in a turbo application.

Another item you might desire, if it is an automatic (4L80e), is the stand alone TCM (keep 12" of wire and the plugs with it). If it is a 5speed, the NV4500 is a good tranny, and even a core would be worth posting up in classifieds (again, keep flywheel, clutch, hydraulic actuator etc...).

The owner says the (4L80) transmission is bad, and the last time it was driven it ran low on oil and started making "metal" noises. I was thinking that the engine probably isn't worth saving.

The engine is always worth saving, theres money to be made. Keep the entire engine harness along with the TCM/ECM these are hard to find parts. Honestly, keep the entire engine and part it out and scrap the rest yourself.

There is not an ECM in this truck, it has a mechanical injection pump. The TCM (transmission computer) is behind the glove box. It is often searched for, being that it is needed to retro-fit a 4L80e behind a 6.2L or to do conversion from DS4 to DB2 injection pumps (with auto tranny). The 599 casting block, is also one of the better 6.2/6.5L castings. It is another searched after item.

X2. I ended up harvesting an IP drive gear from mine.
The only issue you will have is if you have A/C the turbo will not fit. I did a full write up in my M1008 thread on serp belt and turbo conversion.
Diaric did a write up on swapping the a/c box from an S10

Save the Inj pump too. it's worth 250$ just as a core not working. reman it and use it with your turbo swap.
