Are there any diesel pickup engines that would fit the engine mounts on a 99' chevy silverado 4.8l v8?

    Why yes and NO …. The Newer Duramax Diesel motor will fit in your truck But you will have to move the motor mounts, you will also need New mounts that match the motor. Its has a newer style Turbo also.

    Find a Wrecked pickup with the newer smaller Diesel Motor Transmission and get everything for the swap.

    Best idea as anyone will tell you, Sell your Chevy and Buy a Dodge with a Cummins motor.

    I have a friend that installed a 7.3L in a F150 with 4:88 gears and runs propane boost with NX system.

    Have fun…

    No. GM only put a diesel in the 3/4 and 1 ton trucks but that engine would have different mounts and would destroy your stock transmission (if it even bolts up).
