Engine swap?

Has anyone done a Cummins swap into a Ford pick-up or Bronco?

nope but from what ive herd its pretty simple....



fordcummins.com i believe or something close has drop in kits for a cummins to just about all ford trannies

from what ive read biggest problem is exhaust/turbo to close to heater ductwork but an aftermarket manifold moves things away....

Wouldn't necessarly call it simple, I know a few who have done it.

Destroked is the place for parts...best quality you can get out there. What are your goals for the truck, that'll determine which motor best suits your needs

lol whats not simple with the new flex plate it simply bolts in, bolt in motormounts and all your gauges work like factory

maybe the labour isnt simple but its cheaper then getting done at a shop save a few bucks

Never said it wasn't cheaper to do youself, just that its not a weekend deal and will take a fair bit of time and patience to do right
