    The 6.5 exhaust manifolds and turbocharger bolt right on the 6.2 engines. You may need to deal with fuel injection line clearance issues as the lines are slightly different. People are doing this swap with success. Just keep in mind GM does not run the boost that Ford and Dodge/Cummins engines run. GM runs around 7 lbs. while the PSD and Cummins engines run 15 lbs.

    My neighbor has a Chevy extended cab 4 x 4 dually with the 6.2. I think it is either a 94 of a 95 model, not sure. He bought it new.

    He has 130,000 miles on it and loves it. His boat is only a 25 foot center console, but that truck has pulled it to the coast a couple of hundred times at least. He made a trip to Colorado, New Mexico and up to Wyoming year before last and would not be afraid to do it again.

    I think he was just lucky and got a good one. They have had some problems for sure, but he is proof there are good ones as well.

    Troutly, LOL!!!

    I know several guys who HAD trucks with the 6.2 and will never own another. Just like everything esle truck/car/boat/etc.... related, there are some good ones no matter what the overall reputation is. My old Dodge (94) had 179,000 on it when I got rid of it, and I NEVER touched the tranny or the front end. I dont' know many who can say that. My 98 has been more trouble in 6 months than my 94 was in 7 years. Doing well now, but it cost me close to $1400 to get it there. In 7 years I never spent half that on my 94. I consider that one of the good ones, but there were a lOT of bad ones.

    Wally, I'd pass. More bad ones that good ones make your odds of getting a good one low at best. Did that make sense???? LOL!!!
