I was wondering, if you can swap in a 466E, into a 1995 F250? Mainly can I use the same transmission that is on my powerstroke? Cause I would like to do a project with a powerstroke, and I want to keep my 250 diesel, I also want to be diffrent, so thats why I am asking.
All and all I want this to be the answer to my problems. I do some 2WD sled pulling and there is only a few of us and I hate getting beat out by the Cummins guys. So thanks for your help much appreciated.

I might be slowly turning away from the 466, and towards the 360.....smaller, still tougher than hell, and looks to be easy to crank out huge power as well....and no lift req'd either...seems like a much easier swap....plus the 466 would be heavier, and harder on fuel....
The guy says in that thread he was seeing 15.9mpg's !!!!! Better MPG than the PSD that came out!!!
I am putting a dt360 engine in a 2008 f250:
I would think you'd have to stomp on a 466 pretty hard to get it to fit in your truck. DT360s were used in alot of buses and can be found pretty reasonably. With an Allison Automatic trans. They have huge potential from what I've been told. As for what you have in your truck now, you might want to check with Hypermax out of Gilberts Il. He is doin ALOT with Powerstokes. Huge power and torque numbers. I heard Max has one in his Excusion that makes over 1200hp.
Im actually in the process of dropping in a dt360 in my ole 94, the only problem is gonna be bellhousing/flywheel/clutch setup, ford trannys use a sae pattern, so gonna have to make adapter plate then figure out how to make clutch work..466 will fit but rad must to in bed, engine will barely fit in bay, 360 will fit without mech fan, must use elec...
The guy I had a link to, in post #7, is gathering interest for a production run for an IH to a Ford trans. You could have a DT360 or 466 with a ZF6. Here it is again, doing a sled pull for fun. Holding 3800rpm for most of the track YouTube - video-2010-07-03-18-51-02
