i wanna diesel :(
hello, so i tore the engine out of my 94 dodge 1500 long bed 2wd pickup with a five speed because the engine was no good, and was wondering how hard it would be to put a cummins in between the frame rails of this beast and if my 5 speed transmission will bolt up to the cummins engine in the first place.. so to my question now
what would need to be done to convert my wimpy v-6 dodge into a sweet little cummins diesel pickup. please get to me with any useful information at all

It would be cheaper to find an OK condition 12v and replace the 1500 I know where an almost mint 92 single cab 5spd is.

Contact Taquache Motorsports. The owner is a great guy and he put a 12v into his girlfriend's 1500 reg cab short bed.

Different engine mounts, fuel system, engine harness, computer, exhaust system. Probably stiffer springs for a considerably heavier engine. And no, the 5 speed won't bolt up. Good thing too 'cause if it did it'd last about 5 minutes. Could it be cobbled together? Sure. Do you like pain?
