    I swapped out the 6.2 oil filler to the 6.5 oil filler because I am going to a 6.5 CDR set up for the snorkel.



    For just the rest runs, I installed a 0-60 oil pressure gauge.



    I am now experimenting with getting a smaller diameter tensioner pulley so it does not hit the larger water pump pulley. Note OEM 6.5 tensioner pulley is 3” diameter.





    I ordered a new 6.5 CDR passenger side valve cover. I do not want to take too many parts off of my running spare 6.5 because I will be doing an 18:1 build in the future if the block and heads are good on it.

    Yea that was not me. So the rumor is the 6.2 pistons are thicker then the 6.5 pistons and would be a better option to do the 18:1. Do you sell sets of 6.2 18:1 pistons?

    Got off work today and spent 10 minutes taking off the driver side exhaust with the sawzall. It’s painful to see myself tossing it. After all it is 3” stainless with flow master.



    I got started on removing the Oem motor crossmember and just as I was on the last rivet, wife came out and said it’s dinner time and I had to go run some errands for her. Now it’s dark and cold. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get to install the ORD motor crossover. :-D

    Helluva sweet job on the 6.2.....I Enjoy the photography

    The old 6.2 used to have an oil baffle inside that stopped the fill tube from leaking around the rubber grommet.

    GM decided that the baffle cost too much and a bit of oil puking was OK
