Yeah, I am not so sure I want mine in the Long cooler, as I will probably replace it with a radiator kit at some point. Not sure about tapping the pan though... If I do a remote mount filter kit,...

Yes you will need to get the older rods. You should measure the deck height. Get the casting number off of the block to verify. There were a couple different deck heights in the pre-D9TE...

I would not recommend it. It will run, but the side with the F3TE head is going to flow more air, and fuel, and thus produce more power. This is assuming the heads and pistons are not altered from...
