    Hello everyone, I need help over here. So I own a 2014 Volvo with a d13 engine 405 hp around 600k miles. They engine is starting to go out from smoke when ideling to white smoke when starting engine. I have absolutely NO interest in rebuilding the engine whatsoever, I’m thinking about swapping to a 1999 ISX 600 hp or Detroit 12.7 if that’s even possible. I live in Chicago area, so if it is possible in the first place. If so, will anybody be able to give me an estimate on how much will it cost plus a reliable shop that could get this done. I understand that something like this could cost more than rebuilding my current d13 engine but honestly I just want a piece of mind. I would greatly appreciate any kind of help and advice

    Waste of money. Go buy the truck and engine you want, and go to work.

    It can be done if you've got time and money. 100% illegal mind you since its pretty much the same thing as doing a delete.

    Wow. Why not get it properly diagnosed?

    I just hit 1.5m on my D13. No rebuild but costly repairs in the 8 years of ownership.
