So my first...

    Does the pressure plate bolts on a 4bt flywheel have to be special and tapered? I know they are 5/16-18 grade 8 and is there a part number or some other application I may can use?

    So I recently picked up a 1985 Ford Ranger with a Mitsubishi 4d55 in it. I plan on turning the truck into like a prerunner/rock crawler kinda thing, and I was wondering if it would be worth it to put a 4bt in it, or do the work on the stock 2.3l diesel to get around 300-400hp. Would it be more...
  5. Want to Buy
    Looking for a built 4 door Wagoneer/Cherokee (not a Chief). Preferably with a 4BT or R2.8. A gas or stock rig wouldn't necessarily be a deal breaker. Have cash, gold, or BTC. Will travel. - Nate | Marinatin at gmail dot com

    I've been thinking about doing a 4BT Swap in a 2003 Ford Ranger XL with a 2.3 duratec. The ranger has a Mazda M5OD-R1. I don't have any idea hiw much it would cost (I plan to do it myself with the help of a house builder, and a network engineer) if I was going to I would probably upgrade my...

    I found a set of marine 4bt's about 3 hours away from me for $1500 each. I have a 2000 f150 with an m5od-r2 tranny in it, so it makes a perfect swap host. I was no intending on starting the swap for a while, but I like to look for motors on craigslist. I know the ancillary components are...

    I recently purchased a 4bt and I am planning on swapping it into my 1979 f250. It currently has a 351m backed by a t18.
