    So much mismatching..... Why not just get a GM crate engine and tranny. Or even get a Mopar tranny for the diesel I would post your question in a tech forum.

    I was more worried about the tranny not bolting up to the engine right or not being strong enough. I know it is possible to put a Cummings in anything. Its a great engine. Just wondering what he's putting it in...
