    A 6V92 is way too heavy for a Dana 60 to support, A 6V53 is as big as you want to go

    Hey Josh, I have a 1984 Chevy Silverado with a Corvette LT1 and I’m planning on replacing it with a Detroit Diesel or a Cummins, overall how much did you spend on this project and what issues did you have along the way?

    @TjAcura Hey man, Ill have around 5000 into this truck by the time its done. Save yourself some money and buy a running engine for your project. I have 3000 in my motor alone, because I bought my 453T in need of a rebuild and then found it also had a cracked head. The biggest problem ive had, is the truck being a 4×4. The engine is 40 inches tall so its hard to get the clearance on the front axle, and then get it under the hood! I still need a 2″ cowl hood after my lift kit, to get it to shut.

    @randytune88 453T detroit 2 stroke.

    @quad4midget yeah the 6v92 is huge, we have them in the M113 armored personnel carriers. so its like trying to fit a semi engine.

    @paver4life If you mean the 453, it came out of a 79′ chevy C60 flatbed crane truck.

    Looks like you used the chevy radiator. 3 core or 4 core and how well has it been cooling the Detroit?
