A guide?? I think you mean a book. That is a lot of information for someone to put together for someone. I would sell a book like that.

That would be a big book. There are several variables. There are several types of 6bts that could be used and at least a dozen different transmissions you could use. There is lots of information here, and I know it is a PITA to look through all of it so ask questions. I know some folks get tired of answering the same question over and over but it makes life easier for the nubi. Look up JPscustoms build thread he has a 2 parter that has some good information. Also as you get into it a lot of the stuff that may not seem clear will make sense.

Things to know- If you are using GOS's single motor mounts (very nice mounts too) the bigger one goes on the pass side and use the front 4 mounting holes in the block. If you are going to use an Automatic if the doner was auto it makes life easier, It will be easier to use a dodge truck motor, as there is a lot of small parts you need to change if you get a Med duty motor. A medium duty exhaust manifold works well to relocate your turbo. And before you put the cummins in you might want to use some sound mat. The degas bottle might not work so you will have to use a different one if this is the case. Also I purchased as much of my parts from GOS as I could they have great products and they will answer your questions.

I can't recommend any one. I don't do or own a conversion, but this site keeps popping up from time to time; http://gosperformance.com/shop/

I used GOS's Singles for mine. I don't plan on running more than 350-400hp so I think they will do the trick. But many other folks use the quads I guess it is just whatever you want to spend on mounts, and what your ultimate goal for the truck is.
