    Is it possable to bolt a turbo from a 6.5 litre onto an older 6.2 litre?

    Anythings possible.
    Economical maybe not.
    The 6.2 has a few differences on the intake as far as bolt paterns and intake tube sizes that make this project a lot of work, and a bit of machine work that could be expensive. Your better off looking at upgrade kits specific to the 6.2, it'll be cheaper in the long run.
    I have seen one enterprising fella that made his Turbo a remote mount (Kinda like the STS system) but solving the turbo lag issue on a system like that takes a lot of work, you cant keep the intake tubes pressurized all the time because you'll get leaking issues and the system requires a little more boost(pressure) to overcome the volume of the longer tubes.
