Just dropped a Manny 6.5 TD in the GMC, so somebody make me an offer for this nice engine before it ends up in a Trans Am as an L-80. THIS ENGINE COMES WITH A WARRANTY!

How do you like the 6.5? What speed can you cruise at comfortably?

Hi John - I'll start a thread on the board in the next week or two, but the short answer is the 6.5 TD seems like it belongs in the GMC, cruised 75-80 mph on I 80 coming back from SanJose, 12.46 mpg including crossing the Sierras and the mountains in S Idaho. I am real happy with the swap. The 403 with a 3.70 would have put a grin on my face as well.

Jeff,
Did Jim Bounds install your Manny Diesel? Is this your coach that Jim was showing off of the Florida Rally?

Hi Russell - just posted to the diesel thread - no that is not my coach. Manny did the install at his shop in San Jose, I "helped"...Rather wish I was in Florida at the moment.
