the average Ford Overdrive automatic transmission won’t do well with a 4BT in front of it. It’s best to have diesel specific trans because unless one of these guys has done the conversion and has a program guide, you’re looking at a specific setup but custom computer programming.I have access to a 4BT, as of right now it will be the project. I was pretty vague in my original request. I am leaning towards a 95 suburban 4x4 or a 91 f150 2d as the donor, both having factory OD automatics in them. I am guessing there adapters available to mate the motor/tranny. I am really leaning towards the F150 since my drag cars are mustangs...stick to the ford theme maybe. Or I have a roller foxbody coupe that might make a interesting swap. I am thinking more long the lines of a 1/2 ton truck. I have hotrods and currently working on a 42 willys cj2a kabota swap then this would most likely round out s my last swap/retirement truck. I don't need big power on this one.
Google Michael Vanozzi's Hot Vapor engine. I think his patent was recently granted. He has a FB group, and has offered his design to anyone who wants to build it. His system is for a 350 Chevy SB. Plus it uses a turbo. Check it out. Tell him Gene Climer sent you.Any suggestions for build gear towards hi MPG. Any thoughts/suggestions
