    Yes, anything is possible. Depends on what your budget looks like. That sort of swap can get expensive in a hurry though because you have a lot lot lot lot lot of wiring to do. What is so great about a duramax that you want to swap? You could build a very dependable and powerful 6.5 for the same price as swapping in a dirty. I know DAREDEVIL does great work with 6.5's getting amazing mileage and towing out of them. Might want to look into that before dropping a lot of cash on a swap...Especially when you can't tow much with a savannah.
