    Question gas to diesel engine swaps worth it?

    I have a 97 burb with 5.7 vortec with 156000. I just put on K&N filter only. I did notice alittle more umph. and about a 2 MPG increase. But I wanted to know if a 6.5 or 6.2 could be a good option. any other suggestions?

    I think there were some discussion on this in previous months. Do a seach for it and see what you find.

    i would not think the cost of getting everything swaped would be worth it and the fuel cost is almost the same out here so almost no benifit here. i sell and get a diesil if you want one that bad...mike
