Chevy 6.5L Turbo-diesel

Thanks to DieselYJ I have decided to drop a Chevy 6.5L Turbo-diesel into my YJ. What vehichles had these and...is there a Supercharger available for them? Also will they will mate right up to an NV4500? Does the Atlass 3 mates directly to the NV4500 as well? How compicated is the wiring, how waterproof is the setup, and how much more bitchin' can it get!?

Re: Chevy 6.5L Turbo-diesel

If I had to make a guess as to which vehicles might have the 6.5L Chevy turbo diesel, I'd guess somewhere from the late 80's to early 90's all the way to the current year I think (referring to Chevy trucks by the way)... Of course if you have a bit richer blood, you could opt for a Hummer, they had 'em too at least for a time...

Re: Chevy 6.5L Turbo-diesel

The Chevy's and GMC's had the 6.5td from about '93 to current, before that they were using the 6.2 diesel. As to the supercharger what is the point? A turbo does the same thing with less draw on the engine, and the turbos in this application generally last longer than the supercharger. As a word of caution, we use c3500HD's with the 6.5TD at work with a fleet of 14 and we just take turns taking them to the shop. The injection pumps go out on a fairly regular basis, and they smoke like a chimney. The service manager at the dealership himself admits that this is a known problem and says we would have been better off with the 454 v-8 gas engine.

Re: Chevy 6.5L Turbo-diesel

As was already stated the 6.5L turbo diesels came in 1993 but from about 90-93 they sold 6.5L diesels without the turbos. As for the injection pump problems they did have them. The brought out an electronic injection pump in 1994 and like most new things there was some problems with them. In my opinion the best thing to do is if you do find a good deal on a 94-96 6.5L turbo diesel with the electronic injection pump is remove the pump and install one of the older mechanical pumps. You might have to turn the pump up to get the power but that is real easy to do. If you can, try to find an engine out of a 1996 to present military HUMVEE, they are all mechanical and are very easy to install.

Re: Chevy 6.5L Turbo-diesel

I *may* be in luck. I heard a local flipped his HMMV and it went to the Junkyard. I'll have to ask and see how much they want for it, laugh, cry, then break down and start saving up some $$$ (or sneak in late at night with a steak for the guard-dogs and take it piece by piece)

Re: Chevy 6.5L Turbo-diesel

<font color=purple> Ditto what the others said on availability - get one from a mid to late '90's GM & get the 5-speed with it - it's already an NV4500. </font color=purple>
