IT LIVES! 6.2L Turbo Diesel in ’67 C-30 dually pickup

First run of the 6.2L TurboDiesel in my 67 C-30 pickup. It is a 40000 mile military takeout 6.2L, turbocharged using1993 6.5L turbo and manifolds. It has 6.5L marine injectors, and DSG main stud girdle. I built a custom pressure out of a ’70 Porsche air cleaner and used a dual plane non-EGR intake. I also built a custom 4″ discharge housing for the exhaust. The original 6.5 piece is very restrictive is only about 2.5″ on the inside. It will allow me run a true 4″ exhaust system from the turbo all the way out. It sounds WAY better and deeper than original 6.5 housing. I couldn’t run but a little since I don’t have radiator installed yet!:)

    where did you get that presure chamber from? and how did you mount it using only one bolt?

    @steelraptor I sanded the engine down, and degreased everything several times. I primed all exposed spots with Duplicolor engine and painted it with Duplicolor Detroit Diesel Alpine Green paint. I actually painted it about 2 years ago. I put a light fog coat on first and let it get tacky, and then sprayed on 2 more medium coats. It covers surprizingly well. You can get it at O’Rielly’s Auto Parts among others.

    I fabbed the pressure chamber using a ’70 Porsche air cleaner and the bottom of the factory 6.2 air cleaner. I cut them both apart and used the top of porsche cleaner and the bottom of 6.2 cleaner separated by a 1″ piece of sheetmetal to get the proper height. To use 1 stud, I took a piece of 1/4″ steel and drilled the 2 holes that matched the 6.2 intake and 1 in the center. I welded a 5/16″ nut over the hole in the center, and bolted the plate to the intake.

    @67C30 sweet! i like the 1 stud idea better. will that porche airfilter housing be able to take all that raw diesel power around it and the whopping 10 psi of boost? lol.

    @67C30 Wow it looks great for 2 years old, that paint must have some very heady duty binders to stick so well. Does it chip or scratch easily?

    Does this have 18:1 pistons?

  10. 67C30 July 1, 2010 at 2:59 am #

    @Hotrodx199 No, it is has stock pistons. I installed a DSG stud girdle, and I’m limiting the boost to about 10 psi.

    @67C30 Also do you know if a chevy NP435 from about this era will bolt on to the 6.2? Do i need to get a bellhousing? What kind?

    its cool to see someone tweaking on a good old diesels. I have a military k30 and there not a bad engine at all but the turbo swap looks great!

    The motor sounds great! Do you have anymore footage of this truck?
