Wasn't sure where to ask but thought you guys would know. I was looking at 2 groups of chevy diesel trucks. First is the lower cost mid 80's 6.2L diesel, I don't think there turbo charged. I have herd these are bad engines and that they have no power. That they break down a lot. Now that dosen't sound right when people still have trucks where the engins have 200,000miles and run good. The second group are mid 90's and up chevy 6.5L turbo engines. I have herd these are much better then the mid 80's engins. I have herd that the 6.2 is junk when compaird to the newer 6.5L turbo. I would like to to get the newer one but if a real good deal comes along I would take an older one if there worth it. I do not know much about these chevy engines, I work on detroit diesels and Cummins. When I have contact with these engines there usaly driving generators. I get to do a little with cummins 5.9L in older Dodge trucks.
