Y'all are swapping the trannys with the motors right? T/C and valve body's are setup different on gas vs. diesel.

sorry if I'm speaking to soon

Nice pics Ryan! Keep us updated. What was wrong with the 454 or did he just love his truck but wanted the diesel? Those turbo setups are goofy looking.

Nothing wrong with the 454 at all really. Can be a lil hard to start when its cold but that is all.

He loves his truck more then his girl and she knows it. He just really wanted a diesel. As soon as we can find some fender it will become a dually too.

Look at the pics. It is trashed. Plus Chris's truck is in great shape and the bed is line-x'd on the out side and not the inside.
