Has anyone out there converted a petrol v8 chevy or GM car van or truck to diesel v8 power? I'm thinking of doing a swap in my G30 van, I know the gear box(th400) will fit also not worried about exhausts and engine mounts but don't know about what electrics will be required . I also know that the brakes need a special hydro boost system to replace the servo. Any thoughts on this welcome, also if anyone had one of these big diesels what did you think of it in general?

I had heard the 5.7 diesel was no good but whats wrong with the 6.5? As far as i know the 6.5 is just a larger more recent upgrade of the 6.2, I'm no expert on these so any info much appreciated.
