I'd imagine you would also have to change the fuel tank (nozzle size), fuel pump, electronics, possible front suspension parts with added engine weight, and plenty more if you converted to a diesel. Keep it with the 350. If you want a diesel, sell the k1500 and purchase a truck with a diesel already installed.

people who have 6.5'* take them out and put 350'* in. the 6.5 is unreliable and gutless. the tbi 350 is one of the most efficient and reliable truck engines gm made. if i was going to change it to something else it would be a 5.3
