    Default Cummings motor swap in a 1500 Silverado

    I know this is kinda off-the-wall but does anyone know of people swapping out their LS based motor in a 1/2ton to a Cummings motor??

    I though it would be cool to put a disel in a 1/2 ton truck.


    Thanks

    Cummins is a good engine, but you're looking for a ton of work.

    Drop a Duramax in it. Don't pollute a nice 1/2 ton Chevy with a Cummins engine.

    I wish a Duramax would work but Duramx is to big to "fit" in the 03 body style i believe. I had seen/read somewhere (i dont remember where though) that it had been done. LOL

    YES!!!! that is it right there. i bet that truck is a pure monster!
