12 valve in a '98 1500

I'm considering doing an engine swap on my '98 1500 I drive daily. The factpry 5.2 has 178,000 miles on it and is starting to have problems. If i do the swap I want to do some work on the 12 valve before I drop it in. I wanna port and polish the heads, install studs, adjust the fuel, maybe injectors and maybe turbo. I'm gonna get a Goerend tranny for it. As for suspension, how much more will the front end sag with the 12 valve than with the 318? And finally, what's an estimated price on how much the switch would cost? Any input is apreciated.

A guy on PavementSucks.com did it and it was pretty cheap IIRC. His name is Jeff and he used a '98 1500 QC with a '96 donor truck and transferred everything over. He made it a dually, rockwell axles, etc.. Not that you would want to do that because its your DD, but you could go on that site and search for posts by "SuperHawk2002" and you should be able to find his build.

Garmon Diesel Performance I think it is called in Ga. did a nice 1500/12V swap that was in Diesel Power magazine. 700hp and 35mpg. I think. That should be a great truck.
