I've heard lots of bad reps for the 97 thru 99 diesel platform, in the truck forums and mags....
underpowered and problematic...
and I love Chevy trucks.
Dunno for sure if what I heard and read is true...:2cents:
Good luck.:thumb:

Well i have done my research and there are 2 problems and they are both very easy fix's. And just an fyi, not only the 97-99 had the 6.5, just the 97-99 had a nicer interior, 94-99 had the 6.5, so i am not sure if you were reading wrong about the years.....

Thanks tho

As long as you move the brains of the 6.5 away from the heat and road debris they are fine.... actually pretty good. There are kits and all for you to do this yourself for a couple hundred bucks.
In stock form they are not as powerful as the Cummins or Powerstrokes... but you can add a little to them and all is good.

Go for it!!

Yep that is what i have been hearing, I am going to move that, if i don't get a 97+ doing the dual thermostates, and I am putting a nice intercooler on the biatch.
