Diesel swap

Asked by GuruBW745 Dec 17, 2018 at 10:11 AM about the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado Classic 1500 1LT 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

Is there anywhere to get all the knowledge on
a Cummins 5.9 swap into an 07 Silverado
Classic? I know companies make lots, but
does anyone have anything like a manual?
I’m a new convert to the gospel of Diesel
engines and don’t wanna mess anything up
by leaving too much stock in the truck, and
don’t have all the fabrication tools. Like a
guide to diesel swap for dummies.

Why not buy a diesel truck and save all the trouble and expense of a cross brands engine swap?

BTW. A 5.9 would not be smog legal for your truck. Fuggidaboutit.

Just because I have the option to buy this truck from my employer dirt cheap and I have all the time in the world in my hands to do it. I’d like a diesel truck and enjoy having projects. I’m willing to buy a new engine and transmission to get it done. Just want to learn all I can about diesels and figured doing a project like this where I don’t have a deadline would be a good way to learn.
