Question about 1992 Chevrolet C3500
What type of parts are needed to swap out a 6.5 desiel to a 5.7 gas or will every thing bolt up ?
The engine will bolt up with little trouble, however the rest will be a problem. Depending on the engine you will need to bypass the transfer pump and switch soleniod if it has duel tanks. Also the transmission should have a least a lockup torque converter that will require a PCM to operate. If you going this route and live in a any that is not subject to emissions inspection I would recommend replacing both engine and transmission, also the 5.7 will problable to supply sufficent torque for a truck of this size. A better fit would be a 7.4 liter and a 4L80 trans. Either way it will be a rather expensive conversion that will result in lower fuel economy.
