    Have a 94 12v with 200k, has a little blow by and is about to be pulled to be dropped in its new truck- soon to be 05 fummins 4x4. What would y’all recommended items of to do be, I know the KDP, and will redo the turbo but would you do a over haul and get it over with now or later?

    I would focus on getting the swap done - rebuild later. But that's me. I've lost projects entirely because they became too big and dragged on too long. YMMV.

    Run it. 200K ain't jack diddley squat for miles. If you feel weird about it pick up another motor and start gathering parts.
