    LOL. my truck is a regular cab long bed 3/4 ton. It has factory 3.55 gears in it and is 2wd. It's not all that hard. My truck is basically stock. The power and smoke comes from the injectors and tuning. Of course you need your usual supporting mods to run this stuff reliably. You know what is needed if your running a compound turbo 12v. Just the basics.

    which i should of used the ford radiator and an intercooler kit designed for that model ford. the 6bt is a good engine even with the rotary pump that u will be using. i had a p pump and twin turbos on my truck but that truck is no longer running. smoked the pistons and rings from too much fuel. i had to beat the firewall in a good deal and the back valve cover rubbed the firewall when i really got on it. any other questions?

    86 i would use a np241dhd transfer case. i dont know if it would bolt up to a getrag, but i have a 241 chillen and i need some money for my current project which is a d60 4x4 conversion in my 97 powerstroke. ill sell it if it will work for you. dont do the right side diff. that would be way too much work. i just used the d60 ford axle and a np241. i used the ford driveshaft it was the correct length accept for the double knuckle thing, i just took that part off and used a single u joint. my steering is just as it was from ford. i used the ford-cummins engine mounts which i will sell u too if interested. not too hard. i used a dodge radiator and intercooler from a 94-2002 truck. which was a bad idea because i had to do away with the rad support and had to cut into the frame

    I understand you have done a couple 6BT conversions. I am looking at doing one myself, but I have a few questions. I'm wondering what type of transmission you are running? The donor truck I am working on lining up is a 91 Intercooled 6BT. I was hoping to make use of the dodge transmission, Getrag 5spd and use a NP205 transfer case for a Ford, but swap in the 29 spline components to mate the Getrag but still retain the driver's side driveline/diff. I have also considered using the Dana 60 off the Dodge and converting to passenger side diff/driveline, but I'm thinking this is going to require a lot more component swapping? I'd love if you also had some pictures of your front axle, steering etc. since you have the 350 which should have a Dana 60 under it already.

    banshee i didnt even know you could leave messages like this, i havent seen it untill just now, did you ever get it all worked out? in my f350, i used a dodge intercooler and radiator, i dont suggest doing this because the frame will have to be cut out in the bottom, if you are going to tow with it at all, i suggest using a diesel radiator support and diesel radiator, 6.0l intercooler. i was un aware that they still used c6s in 1995. but still i wouldnt put it behind a cummins. too many rpms lost in the mushka torque converter. i would use dodge transmissions. and yes you do have to build new driveshafts. oreo, propane inject is a pain in the rear to say the least. i quit using it a long time ago, i should change my sig. a slow feed nitrous system sounds like a much better idea! adjust to your liking.

    I have a 95 F-250 4X4 with a 351W,C6, 3.55 gears, that I want to put a 5.9 12V in. Can you give me any insight? I would like to keep the C6 if I can, I don't want to swing a pedal to do a stick, I don't want an E4OD. I know where I can get the rear engine plate for a Cummins that has the small block Ford trans pattern, but I dont know about a flexplate or convertor. Also, according to, I wiill need to change the radiator support, is this true? What radiator and intercooler did you use? Did you have to move the tranny and transfer case and make new driveshafts? Thank you for your time.
