Quite the time capsule. I'd love a van with a diesel. But is that a 6.2L in '83? And someone has added a turbo? The 6.5 didn't some out until the early 90s.

I think you're probably right.
A 6.2L four stroke Detroit with an aftermarket turbo? shocked
That's sorta like putting a scope on a BB gun......

Or gas on a fire. The 6.2 was a light duty piece. GM / Detroit Diesel made quite a few upgrades to the 6.5 to make it live.
