Is a van front gasser a bad idea?
Hey! Ive been scouring the forums for a few months now and this is my first post. Thank you for all the great info on here - its been awesome.
I am extremely drawn to the 5 window 6.0 gas chevy short busses. From what I have read, they start up better in the cold (ski trips are a must) , are easier and cheaper to work on, and they have a pretty good reputation for reliability. And If **** hits the fan, I can throw in another used or rebuilt engine/trans for relatively cheap. I should probably add that I am quite comfortable working on gas engines, but I know nothing about diesels.
Do you think this is the right choice for me? For reference, I am looking at the 2007 - 2011 6.0 chevy's with 115k - 150k miles for about 7500 bucks. If it helps, I live in socal and I am 6'1. Thanks for reading and have a great day.
