    I’m pretty sure there is a 6.5 gm turbo charged diesel that would fit straight in. It’s used in the hummer
    but it will be a compromise and will certainly require serious thinking about drive ratios etc. They are really heavy too.
    There is a guy here in the U.K. that marinises the superb BMW 6 cylinder 3.0 and merc 3.0 engines. They are ideal and he mates to your bell housing. They have almost identical rpm power bands to the GM V8

      The companies that were marinizing rhe duramax went out of business years ago with the exception of Gale Banks.
