i dont see why not. the OBD1 and OBD II is just the type of diagnostic computer in the truck. its the type of interface. if you switch just the engine it should work. you may have to switch the computer as well because some IPs are not compatible with different computers i've heard. what kind of motor problems are you having?

The motor will be a straight swap, IP's are the same. Should be no problem. Leo

You need to look at whether they are both F both S or one of each. You could lose the S stuff anyway as long as they don't bust balls for emissions. As far as OBD1 or 2 the 2000 is OBD2 and needs to stay OBD2. You can't switch ecms. Just use the IP off the 2000(hopefully not the problem wih the 2000) and you should be fine. The location of the accesories will probably be different. IIRC the 95 (atleast mine does) has alt on opposite side of the 2000. Same with a/c comp so just use everything off the 2000.Check my sig, I just happend to have both.

Longblocks will swap no problem as was mentioned. Swap all sensors and accessories from the 2000 engine to the 1995 engine and install.
2000 Chevy K3500 6.5TD Dually Automatic, 4" exhaust and mandrel bent crossover.
1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX. AWD Turbo and then some.
1992 Mitsubishi Galant VR4. #909/1000. Sheetmetal intake, CF hood, bigger turbo than my truck.
1992 Kawasaki Ninja ZX11. Piped, Jetted, etc.

3 turbocharged vehicles. Turbo Busa is next.

exactly take the 1995 down to a long block and go from there. If the 95 has over 100,000 miles I would check the timing chain and gears at this time. It will never be easier. You might also want to throw in the newer style oil pump. In my opinion it makes a huge differance in oil flow & pressure. You could use the oil pump out of your 2000 if you trust it and want to save some cash.
Where are you located?
What are the specifics on the 95?
I also have a wrecked 95 that could save you from disassembling a good truck if you are close enough.
