    Is it possiable to take a turbo from a 6.5 and put it on a 6.2?

    Feeling creative are we? :p

    I think it would physically fit, but would imagine there will be a lot of reconfiguring to the injection pump and maybe more? I know the 6.5 TDs are a drive-by-wire setup, so probably no help there.

    Maybe look into some of the Turbo Diesel forums? They'd probably know. Of course, half of them would likely tell you to yank it and drop in a Cummins... lol

    Possible - maybe. But probably not real practical. Once upon a time there were turbo kits on the market for the 6.2's. Try Banks Engineering to start. payup
