GAS/DIESEL SWAP in FL or close !!!!! LOOK HERE
Hello , anybody that wants to have a diesel in theyr gaser let me know .
An other Member and i will open a shop here in Bradenton FL and do these swaps for way less then others ...because some are rip offs !!! ( SORRY )
It is way easyer then some companys will tell u and we figured out a way to do these PROFFESIONAL for ~5500-6500 Bucks complete with everything u need.
This Price is based on 350 vortec to 6.5 l TD intercooled , other extras to gain even more power are avbl. !!!
Most likeley i am offering this to models from 95-99 for the above price.
We can do older or newer ones as well !!!!
We will look in to Duramax and other, in the near future ( depends on how many will be interested ) !!!!
But the 6.5 TD is a very reliable engine .
So why not get more power and gain way better milage then a gas engine .
If u pull a boat,or any other trailer u will be surpriced about how much farther and easyer u can go !
Contact me any time per PM , Scott
PS. to the moderators here, i hope i stuck this in the correct area if not i am sorry !!!!

Stephan...NOW COME ON !!!!! EXCHANGE..or u need to show me how to modify a gas engine to diesel !! LOL
If the gasser is in fair condition i can even take some $ off !!!!

That's why I was asking lol.. There are places that swap out cranks, rods, pistons, flywheels etc to convert them..
If you're not modifying them, then $5500 - $6500 sounds like a pretty good deal for the customer. You're gonna have to get a good deal on the engines to make much profit. Are you & your bud going to be doing all the work, or are you going to have employees?

My Buddy and i are doing all the work ourselfs..he is a chevy diesel guru and i am the bolt bitch..LOL
No , i am good with electric stuff and modifying..and he knows all about 6.2 & 6.5 diesels...here is what we are planing for mine ..
Bigger Turbo ( 17 instead of 12 pounds )
Intercooler and blow off valve from a foreign car
and some secret stuff
~ 500 HP & 600 tourge !!!! YES BABY
Then, shift kit for my tranny, and 3:42 gears gonna be in the 25-35 MPG range and running 85-90 @ 1700 RPM !!!!! I LOVE IT !!!!!
Some super extra stuff can be had for extra money and we actually do this to support our shop costs , not to get rich.
Nobody gets rich anymore in this country unless u start with a few milion !!! LOL

Good idea about supporting the shop costs. Most people just don't realize how much stuff you use in a shop that isn't chargable to the customer. Shop supplies are a freakin killer to any auto/truck business.

They way with gas/Diesel prices now , u still safe a bunch of money and actually gain power with the swap !!!!
I just did the math..kind of.
Now i get like 12 MPG ( 42 gallon tank ) = ~ 420 miles cost for 1 tank ( here ) =$ 126
DIESE, lets say 28 MPG(42 gallon tank ) = ~ 1176 miles cost for 1 tank ( here ) =$ 136
I think its well worth it !!!!
Plus if u have a 150 K miles gasser and get a checked out Diesel !!! U do the math on this !!!!! mhhhh
Oh, ofcoarse we will service these vehicles as well and cheaper then any shop can !!!!!
+ interior work and all the good fun custom stuff !!!!! just ask, there is nothing we will not do or say no to
Boats , Trucks , Cars ..all the toys in 1 HAND !!!!
