Howdy yall. With all the crazr coming about over the past year or so about the 2.8 cummins i got to thinking about diesel engines. Now i dont particularly care for putting a different brand motor in a s10, so i did some looking around, and found the 2.8 i4 lwn duramax. I have a 1986 4x4 ext cab s10. Im thinking about swaping in the 2.8 duramax. My question is regarding stock transmission and axles. I would like to upgrade the transmission to the 6l45 i believe, but i have heard bad things about it. Wondering your guys thoughts on that and fittment for it, if it would just flat out be to big or what not. Aswell i believe i want to upgrade the axles to halfton axles(3.73s preferably) for a few reasons, one the are stronger and i think would handle the torque better, and they are slightly wider so further down the road i wouldnt have to buy wheel spacers and destroy my wheel bearing. Just wondering your guys thoughts. Anything is appreaciated! Thank you!
