Switching to gas is possible, but impractical. Not cost effective. Too much to change. If you want gas, better to sell this one and buy a gas version.

If you have a choice, avoid a turbo if possible considering what the environment of LaManz is really like. While incredibly nice when new, a turbo is a precision item that costs more than a thousand USD just for the part and it is prone to failure in harsher conditions and extremely failure prone as it ages. When a turbo blows it can take out the rest of the engine too.

Most people think the '96-'98 Cummings with the 5.9L P7100 pump 12-valve engines are the best - sort of the small block Camaro of diesel engines. You will get 500K+ miles on a well maintained engine. Easy to rebuild. Not sure if will bolt in your rig. It would help to know some more details like make and model.
