Default Speed or power?

Im going to start my explaining, I love a couple things in this world. Speed. And power.

I have a bike, not fast but quick, but I also know I will end up dead. Your body is like a rag doll at 120MPH.

My friends has a 95 Chevrolet C2500 w/ a 6.5L turbo diesel. His truck is overheating, losing coolant and has a lot of blow by. Meaning it could be a cracked block or a headgasket + piston ring. He said its mine for $500.

Worst case scenario, I can pick up a 6.5LTD of CL for around $1200.

I know its a 2wd, but I dream of having a lowered Diesel grunt. 3" turbo back exhaust and roll coal.
Make it look something like this:


If I were to go through with it I'd have to sell my bike to fund it.

What would you do?

They are a Detroit Diesel designed engines, and when properly maintained can be great engines. His engine had a hard life before him as it towed farm trailers around the farm and they aren't light.

body is not great, but the cab corners and rockers are there. Doors are good, as well as the fenders. Looks like there is some repaired rust in the box.

Transmission fluid is clean (but not fresh) and it shifts through all gears. Rear end makes no noise and I see no problems in the suspension. I drove the truck a few times before the motor blew, even towed a race car up to the track (about 50 miles) and it pulled like a dream.

Also once its running and reliable, I may sell my BMW to throw some cash at the truck and salvage the motor thats in it now if the block is good (Peninsular Diesel 18.1 pistons, bored 30 over, marine injectors and 18-20PSI of boost)

other than the body needing a sum work. being that the drive train seems in order sounds good.

if the block can be slvaged bore it over hell yea redo the bottom halfs baring and u got pretty much a fresh motor.

Well Id run a different motor for now while the block sat for planing. But OEM rods for these motors are said to be strong. But yea, balance the crank, fresh bearings, new pistons and bam you have the works for a 300+ HP diesel and stupid torque.

88-98's are the worst looking years imo. I wouldn't do it.

not a bad looking truck. if you do it

go bigger than 3" to really bring it to life - please dont do stacks
lowered - NO
build it up and you can pull 400+ hp from it and well over 500ft lb

i dont care for 2wd's at all but if you are planning on using it to pull on the street its the best way to go
