So how hard is it going to be to make an l5d in the new medium duty produce the same power as an l5p? I assume the turbos will need swapped and a tune. Would one be able to flash a tune from say, a 3500 regular truck onto a 45/55/6500 computer?

I would assume that like the Topkicks it has to be a medium duty tune. I believe L5D is 350 hp and the L5P is 445 hp. A 50 hp tune, I see no issues, a 95 hp tune, doable but at what cost to reliability?

Ive heard others say they have tried using a tune from little trucks and it didn't go well. Things like weight and shift points in tranny.. Just my 2 cents...Id use a custom tuner and do it right

Do the body lines actually line up like that? or is that a one off bed? I really wish they had used the 2020 cab.

The body lines do match up but yes I had to lengthen the bed 9” to not have to cut the frame. So, yes it does line up but yes it is a custom bed.
