i have a 96 f250 and its got a 460 in it. i need to get a new core support and trying to see if a diesel would work better. i have several problems with the gas core support. i put a 4 core radiator to help with cooling and it helps but doesn't really fit. i plan on cutting both ends off and raising them 3 inches to match the body lift also. the core support i have is bent but i can straiten and cut the bend out. i just not sure if it would be easier to start with a diesel core support and have less work. i know the body lines are all the same.
