    If I switch a Detroit DD13 Motor for a 60 series Detroit in a 2015 Freightliner, do I need to change turbos and starters as well?

    Why would you need to change turbos?

    If that is your only concerns - dont even think about it . Better buy complete truck assembled already by someone else
     
    Rideandrepair and Roger McG Thank this.

    That's what the mechanic said, that it would be better to replace it if I did change the motor.
     
    Rideandrepair Thanks this.

    I appreciate it. The mechanic stated that it would be best to replace the starter and the turbo. I'm just trying to see if it's worth it. Not trying to buy another truck right with the prices the way they are.
     
    Rideandrepair Thanks this.

    Can you elaborate sir? Trying to find out more about the good and bad of doing it if that was the case that I changed the motor
     
    Rideandrepair Thanks this.
