HX35 TURBO UPGRADE - 6.5 Diesel
Been doing a lot of "spring" maintenance on my 1995 GMC SUBURBAN 6.5L Diesel turbo. Hubs, rotors, calipers, brake pads etc. Decided to do a turbo upgrade with a HX35 HOLSET clone. turbo CONVERSION KIT - http://ptwiringsolutions.com/ SILCONE INTAKE JOINTS - www.maperformance.com Misc. parts from ROCKAUTO.com (Bought turbo off of EBAY)

1994 Chev S10 gas to diesel conversion
My converted S10 gas to diesel truck. It was a 4.3 vortec V6 gas engine with an automatic transmission, I removed them both and installed the Isuzu C223 4 cylinder diesel, with a Borg Warner T5 5 speed, which came with the engine. Conversion was fairly straight-forward, not a lot of fabrication required to make things work. It's quite underpowered, it's slow accelerating, though once up to speed it's not so bad. Fuel mileage is amazing for a truck. I haven't run the tank to near empty, but have seen 600kms at 1/2 tank left, so I think I should get 1000kms from the tank (just the stock tank - 13 imp gal I believe). I haven't owned a vehicle yet where 1/2 tank was exactly half of the distance you can travel on a tankful. It's different. Most guys who modify their drive trains put in bigger engines, typically V8's, however I went for something different, unique, and cheap to drive. I can still haul all an S10 can (or more), and have hauled my trailer with a ton of steel, for a total weight of almost 7100 lbs. I just didn't haul it quickly. I hope you enjoy the vid. For the first time, I tried to see how far I could get on a tank of fuel (usually I fill it weekly). The fuel gauge was in the red, though I didn't run out, it was at 1009kms when I filled it.
