    If you use a Eaton 13 spd, what would my cruising revs be , and I could stay in high range right?

    RPMs would go down with a 13 spd tranny. YOU had better look at eaton.com for the specs. These are BIG trannys made for BIG RIGS!

    The RT-610 series is made for 600 ft lbs input torque so it is a mid range trans... still pretty big but doable.

    I know I had someone in a 2 stroke Detroit group said he did a 13 speed, I was like what would you need that for, then I thought possible that you could get 1000-1400 rpm at cruising

    It is all in the math. Tire size, rear axle ratio, trans o.d. ratio ( some have 2)

    Matt, have you found the diesel conversion sites yet such as 4btswaps.com ? Much to read.

    4bt Swaps started off as a 4bt site but grew to have Detroit, Perkins, Japanese Diesels and more. It is a lot of creative people throwing ideas around and getting things done. Take a look!

    The 4d55 came in turbo too, just 2.3l instead if 2.5. I pulled one out of an 85 Dodge ram 50(Mitsubishi might Max rebadged) and put it in a1991 Mazda b2600. I'd do it again all day.
