Hey your talking about putting a Duramax in the Malibu, there is a Grand National with a diesel in it but I can't remember which site I saw it on. Pretty sick and fast. Google it or check YouTube. If I find it I'll post the link.

Yeah thats the one. I say go for it. The only thing I'm wondering is what about emissions? California is a PITA when it comes to that, I know of a few people that specifically found diesel vehicles to avoid the Emissions Police but can it go both ways if you throw a diesel motor into a vehicle that originally required an emissions test?

im millitary hence sig line

car is registered in ohio and no current emision

had to pass snif test to get a base sticker.. told them that is was one of the very few malibu that came with a 350 V-8 diesel. guy believed me put a sticker on the window and off i went with no snif test
iirc you have to get the CARB to write off on the swap and provide documenttaion of everything

i just got a 12 bolt moser with 9 inch axle-ends and 33 spline axles, bolt in for a g-body, bought it from prodogy customs.. and its close to umbreakable.. other bet is a track-9 from SC&C can be had with a choice of centers, both 9 in and 12 bolt ring gear... but the ford ends make for cheap brakes and does away with teh c-clips..

man havent been hear in awhile.. suprised thread was locked..
4 years latter.. lot as happened got out in oct 08
swapped a junk yard 468BBC put samll cam, bearings rings seals valve springs in the wagon drove form LA to springfield OH 2800miles.. only problem through the alt/fan belt south side of indy. not bad for having less then 500.00 in it.
went to college (wyotech) blew that 468 up in their dyno piston slap after then additional 20,000 mile i put on it. it died at 3600rpm making 236rwhp and 360rwtq.
whats left of piston #7

found and built another 468bbc
2.065/1.88 vavle proted heads (049), oem rods and crank reconed with 3/8" rod bolts slinging speed pro 10cc domes, kmotion springs, comp roller tip rockers (came with junk yard engine) performer intake msd pro billet dis HV oil pump. 208/218 @.050 .475/.500 hyd cam(same spec that blew up on the dyno) dynoed 305/477 at the tires with a edelbrock 600cfm carb.

put a JD race 8.8/7.5 hybrid axle with 31 spline axles and true trac dif with 3.08 gears along with DA upper links and tubler NA lowers.
also got biger 1 1/4" MC as well
got a 17x9 with 5" bs for mock up.. not near as much tweeking is going to be needed as i thought..

did do a dmax repower but not in the malibu
but my 99C3500HD that the 6.5 deside to generate a 2 peice crankshaft.

thing to note
Dmax runs the same standard GM 6/7 hole bolt pattern.
autos run 6 bolt large BC 11" allison and 4l85 are the same.
weighs about 850lbs and will fit nicely in the same BBC space..
got about 8,000 in the swap with tuneing can get ~650fwhp and over 30mpg(from other swaps i have seen)

plan/goals are this
1g skid pag
11 1/4 mile
70+ slallom
100' less 60-0
20+ mpg
275s in the front and min 275 rear possible 315s, cross country DD realiable
talked to mark at SC&C be usesing alot of their stuff.

rear tires finally died.. bought 2 17x9 craggar soft 8 with 5" bs mounted some 275/40/17 tires on them.. for ****s and giggles i put them on the front..
please pardon the dirt... 700yd long gravel driveway does that easy.. and everything is a work in progress naturally...
5608 springs poly bushing.. stock a arms. ride height at finder wheel on the front is 25"
i took the car out in my uncles plowed field with 4-6" ruts and did figure "8"s no rubbing which did include bottoming out the front.. need some .250 spacers for the back axle..315/35/17 is very feasible..




closest point of intersection


1 3/8 sway bar no rubing the 245/50/15 did rub
