    Congrats on your new desil:rolleyes: or diesel:), and the last thing you want to here is you bought a POS. The 6.5 GM diesel will Git-R-Done, won't win any race's:nono:; however with such low mile's it's a keeper Thumbs Up you have the opportunity to make the necessary improvements to ensure it lasts well beyond 100,000miles. Here's a link to Heath diesel they specialize in the 6.2 & 6.5 GM diesels, and holds a land speed record with their 6.5 diesel:dizzy:
