I have 2 tow trucks with 6.5's and there a great motor! Your not gonna get huge power or hp like the NEW Duramax, cummins, or Power stroke but for its time the 6.5 was awesome. There definatly a strong work motor!

I think the 6.5 was made by GM no cat or anything else.....

the 6.5L Turbo Diesel is a engine that was designed and built by Detroit Diesel and the 6.2L was built by GM,my dad had a 97 6.5L TD and never had any trouble other then the fuel and injection pump went out of it 2k miles before the warranty went off of it witch is at 120k miles..
