Chevrolet with a Cummins engine Information
Can you put a Cummins engine in a Chevrolet? Yes.
We do not yet provide as many parts for the Chevy to Cummins conversion as we do for the Fords. At this point we can provide you with a set of mounts for your 80's style 4x4 ($260). Also, we do manufacture our Ford Cummins Adapter Plates and Custom Flexplates for most Chevy automatics. We can also help you to hook up to a Cummins engine with a 96 and later Chevy NV4500 standard transmission.

The truck below is a 1991 Chevy Blazer. The last year of the square nose. Same truck as the 86 and older pickups 1998 Cummins 12 valve. NV 4500 transmission, NP 205 transfer case.
We changed out the vacuum boost brakes and put in hydro boost brakes. This made clearance for the Cummins engine intake plenum.
We also dropped the frame in the middle (as seen in the pictures) and trimmed the frame in the front. Custom A/C bracket. It is the factory Chevy setup modified to bolt to the Cummins engine.
Intercooler is a 99 Ford intercooler. Very tight fit behind the grill.
We also used a replacement/upgraded radiator from a 1993 Dodge pickup that had a Cummins engine.
We removed from Chevy a 350 V8 with a 700R4. We also changed the gears to 3.43. The truck weighs 6500 lbs. It has a camper for a PARACHUTE (not very aerodynamic) and gets 17mpg at 70-80 mph.
If you keep it under 70 mph, this 12V Cummins engine gets 20+.
