6.4 swap info
So I'm thinking about swapping a diesel into a muscle car, like a Duramax in a 57 Chevy, 69 Camaro or a Chevelle, OR a 6.4 in a 67-70 (preferably 69/70) Mustang fastback or maybe even a 70/71 Torino.
With that, I'm looking for info on the 6.4, mainly physical size (dimensions), and the big one, what runs it?
Hows the 6.4 setup? Is the ECM/TCM integrated, and mounted on the engine? Is the rest of the truck integrated with the engine/trans somehow, like through a Can-Bus system?
Is it possible to take the engine and trans, use the factory wiring harness along with the ECM/TCM, and run power to the ECM, run some grounds, and fuel and it'll run?
I'd use a programmer (Spartan) for power and the obvious DPF/EGR delete, so maybe anything else thats not used from the truck can be dealt with that way...?
I thought I asked something along these lines before, but now I can't find it. I know a Duramax would be relatively easy, not sure if the 6.4 would be much worse or not?
