New AM General - GEP Optimizer ™ 6.5L Diesel Engine - Non Turbo Naturally Aspirated Engine

This is the latest version of the 6.5L engine still produced new today. These are build-to-order engines in that your engine is run down the assembly line after order. Unfortunately, they are not built ahead of time and stored. Standard lead time to delivery is approximately 6-weeks, sometimes less depending on assembly plant's load.

This engine has a lot of versatility in that it's a direct replacement for the many Non Turbo 6.5L applications used from 1994 - 2002 in C/K Trucks, Vans (G and P series), and some other applications. This engine was also used up to around 2010 is some P Series Delivery Vans. The replacement engine is also suitable for all 6.2L Diesel applications as an upgrade from the 1982-1993 135-155HP 6.2L engines to an updated engine that is capable of producing 170HP nearly smoke-free without a turbocharger with appropriate matching fuel injection components. We also specify this engine with a better oiling system for units that spend more time idling (better idle oil pressure than other variants of the 6.5L).

Features & Included:

  • Engine Longblock Assembly (engine, timing cover, balancer, covers, pan, lift brackets, as pictured)
  • Block Heater (120 volt)
  • Oil Filter (filter and filter fitting)
  • Oil Pressure Sensor/Switch pre-installed
  • Filled with 15w40 Break-In Oil
  • Natural Aspirated Cylinder Heads with fuel economy pre-combustion ports.
Engine features all metric fasteners, so if replacing a Pre-1999 model Engine, please inquire after purchase about a metric fastener kit after purchase necessary for replacing your existing engine (will need to know year/make/model). This is only available to customers who purchase a Longblock here. Approximately $95 shipped.

Engine Preparation Options

If unit is being shipped via Air Freight the engine must be free of oil, new engines come with break-in oil in the pan, so engine must be un-crated and drained of oil and a new filter installed (that is dry). This requires being sent to Unique Diesel for processing making it not possible to drop-ship from factory, this is part of the cost associated with this option.

Addition of timing tab for mechanical engines. The factory cannot modify this assembly as it's intended for electronic engines. We can optionally add the mechanical timing tab to the front of the engine's timing cover with special tooling and have it match TDC for timing with timing lights, We do this and add the plug in the timing cover to delete the crank sensor opening. This makes the engine have to come to us instead of being able to drop-ship. This is part of the expenses figured into the cost of the option.
