Re: 6.2

yup

I woulndt buy one of those, the dodge and ford desels are so much better that I could and would never consider getting a 6.2 chevy. partly because the motor doesnt have good reputaion and the fact that its sitting on ifs front end, wich will fall aprt in no time

just my opions

Re: 6.2

hey now dont po po the 6.2, its a good solid motor, i have a 86 that has 174,000 on it, still runs good, doesnt use oil, well not any more then any other deisel. Just a small oil leak, truck would still be being drivin but the tranny took a crap. And a turbo isnt nessessarily espensive. My GMC has one that the guy i bought it from rigged up, theres alot of stuff runnin around, but you can tell it has some extra power.

Re: 6.2

One also needs to remember the 6.2 came out of the oil embargo days and was ment to be a high mpg 305/350 HP/torque wise. So it never did, nor was it ment to be a power house. It did do what GM had intended it to do. Get over 20 mpg, it does last along time, at least as compared to the 6.5! The 6.5 was ment to be a cross between a 350 and a 454 power wise. Which it has done also.
A 6.2 would not be that bad of a motor s long as you are not planning to tow with it!

Re: 6.2

i do a bit of towing with it, and the 6.2 held up, although the 700R4 didnt that was in the Chevy with a full hay rake behind it. And yes it dang good for milage and desent power. Enough to sqeal them a bit. Bit of info to, my Shop teacher told me its one of the highest reving diesel motors for pickups.
