I have purchased a 1983 Chevy 3/4 ton with a 6.2c code in it. It had a bad head gasket. The guy bought another 6.2 that has a blown rod, that I presume is a j code motor, it has the serp belt setup, my question(s) are: what parts are different ? if I use a head off the j code are they the same or will I have to change both heads ? what parts should I use to make the best possible motor with the most power ? I am planning on putting this motor in a 1984 crew cab dually eventually with a NV 4500. right now it will have a 700R4 from the 83 with the 6.2. And down the road money permitting a turbo.
From what I have read these 6.2's are not the fastest motors but will pull the weight ? In my experience most diesels are the same not real fast but powerful and reliable.

Any help would be appreciated.
