View Full Version : Diesel?

Would anyone ever consider swapping in a diesel block? I was just trying to picture a diesel stang. Maybe a 6.4L from an F-Series?

There is a 96 running around with a diesel that has a trap speed of 140mph, not sure of the time. His car is in Feb Hotrod. He gets 33 mpg.

Nice. I'm wondering if those aftermarket k-members for the s197 would accommodate one

it would be an awesome project, theres a ranger with the ford 6.0psd in it, about 700 ftp to the rear wheels

Well, I'll be finishing school this spring. Might make a good project.

whatever you do dont use a 6.4 , that thing is a boat anchor, use a 12valve cummins, it would be sweet, I worked at a diesel hotrod shop and the owner did several 12 valve into v6 half ton dodge trucks with good results. A 12v dodge cummins with a decent turbo should put down close to 600 hp and crazy torque. You will need slicks , big slicks to hook up all that torque. Good luck I think it will be awesome

I have to admit I love the look of those blocks, but there are two things I'm not happy with:
1. It's not a Ford Engine
2. Compatibility issues with the transmission.
I don't think bolting a ford diesel to a ford trans would be nearly as difficult as it would be to bolt to a cummins.

It WOULD look great in that, though!^^^

I was under the impression the diesels make so much torque it would be near impossible to launch one in anything less than a 4wd vehicle.

It's all about gearing and suspension (and possibly a shit ton of sandbags in the rear)
