6.5 Turbo diesel conversion to 5.9 Cummins

Hi,
My names Andrew I have a 1993 Chevy 2500 6.5 That I just recently blew the engine in and I am looking to convert it to a 5.9 cummins and I was wondering were I could find a wiring harness and a adapter plate for the trans. I would greatly appreciate some help.

also you might be able to make a plate for it..and take it to a machine shop... you might need a diff flywheel.. i think your better off just getting a trans from the cummings and call it a day!...

the new diesel power magazine (jan 2011) on page 188, has an article titled "swapping a cummings into anything" with a list of references for conversion parts. check out "destroked. com for stand alone ecm's and adapters. on page 170 of the same magazine they have an article on a cummins powered suburban.

85k10 with a 1995 6.5. banks sidewinder turbo diesel and lots of options
