Hey guys, i have a '95 12v that runs great, actually i have a reman'd longblock in it with about 12 miles lol.....
This truck is going to tow my 30' enclosed trailer, with my car in it, thats it. Now, the trailer & car weigh about 10,000lbs loaded, i know its not much of a task for a 12v BUT i got a GREAT deal on this motor/trans out of a wrecked truck that has 63,000 km - prob 40,000 miles. Motor is a 6.7 with 68RE transmission
Now i know people are going to say "leave the 12v its fine" and i realize this, i've owned a few
I also own an '03 and its a great truck too.
Im wondering, how much of a PITA is it going to be to make this functional. I have everything right down to the starter/alternator & can get anything else i need. I assume the box bolted to the drivers side on the block is all the wiring/cpu for the engine. I have all the wiring harnesses i think i will need.
I've done some searching, but not much info. The only thing im not sure about is the throttle - i assume its fly by wire. Am i going to need the gas pedal from the other truck or maybe just whats connected to it?
Im looking for a gain in performance AND power. I know the 24v have a MUCH broader power curve than my 12v, tons of torque at all throttle positions.
As for the fabrication/replumbing of the turbo system, etc im not worried about, lots of time on that stuff in my car. The trans is from a 4wd & it would be going into my truck - 2wd....i realize the back tailhousing & shaft would have to be changed & it so happens my best friend is also my trans guy, so that wouldnt be an issue at all.
I've been doing some reading, and realize the trans in factory form was able to be "paddle shifted" so i can go this way as well...
Any help would be great, here's some pics....
