Why not just buy Rick's stuff? Sure they cost a little more but those Kodiak up pipes fit like absolute ****!

Last night I cooked my LB7 and I can't afford to rebuild or buy a used one right now. I have to get my truck back on the road as soon as possible for work. A friend has offered to let me have his 7.8 Duramax out of his wrecked top kick. The motor has less than 100k! He is going to let me pay him for it over time and is going to help me do the swap. Can it be done? If so can you tune the 7.8's like you can the 6.6? Or should I just switch the tags and insurance back to my old Gasser? Thanks for any input, I appreciate it!

It's an inline 6, weighing about 1400 lbs, vs the v8 @ around 800 lbs, and given how the v8 fills up the engine compartment, in particular not having a lot of extra space between the engine to firewall and engine to radiator, it probably would take a fair amount of work to move stuff around to make room for it, as well as to stiffen up the front end to handle the extra weight. And then you have to figure out how to get all the computers to work together.


I doubt this project would be compatible with your stated requirement of "I have to get my truck back on the road as soon as possible for work".

That is why this diesel place is so awesome! I would have never thought of those issues. I would have been knee deep in trying to do it and getting more and more frustrated before I would have realized it wasn't going to fit probably. Thanks for your insight.

If you want to know for sure, you'd need to measure the Duramax I-6, but I'm pretty sure there isn't enough extra space between your engine and radiator to stuff 2 more 5" pistons and still have room for a belt and fan in front of it, even if all the accessories and the water pump were mounted beside the motor.
