A newbie GM guy.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Just found this site. I have been in Idaho for about 18 months now. I have run gas engines my entire life. Have driven a few diesels, but never have owned one. I am looking at using the site as a resource to wade through all the info on the web about GM 6.2/6.5 motors from advice to companies (the good and the bad). My latest project is a frame-off restoration of a 1985 Chevy Crew Cab. I will be converting it to a short bed. As far as a motor goes, I am looking for durability, moderate horsepower and torque, 250/550 and decent fuel mileage. I would like to keep it all GM if I can.

The project is under way. The truck came almost fully stripped. I have a couple of more evenings to finish stripping everything off of the cab. Then I will venture into cutting and welding the frame back up. Then the cab and bed come off. Then the real fun begins.
