    I am hoping someone can help me find a reputable shop that does engine swaps. The closer to Illinois the better. The truck will be '99 or older. I will be installing a 3406e or c-15 paired with an eighteen speed. I have found a few donor trucks that I will sell the engine and trans that comes with it, but I am having no luck finding a shop to do the swap. Any help would be appreciated.

    My mechanic - Garners Diesel in Duenweg, MO (just outside Joplin) has done several 'glider' type builds and engine swaps. Call and talk to Shawn. Just search for Garners Diesel - Thunder road, Duenweg,MO.

    No I haven't. I didn't really think of them as a "custom" shop. BUT you are correct. I should at least call and ask them. Thank you, those are good ideas to try.
