Search. Been mentioned (and discussed to varying degrees) multiple times. Google works wonders too.

Z79outlaw and FastCR have done cummins conversions on the GMT400 body style trucks. Both used NV4500s as well.

I think it is an amazing idea. Good luck with it. I think there are a few CHUMMINGS on here (A chevy with a cummings in it duh.). Well good luck again. One day I also plan on doing a 5.9 CTD conversion and through a NV4500 in the truck for a drive train. Good luck and be safe.
