Rolled Truck-need car to put motor in

i rolled my 94.5 7.3 powerstroke bout two months back(i was doing 65 and swirved at one of my friends on a wet road and well you know....)and the truck is gone but the motor is salvageable. i have always wanted to put a diesel in a car and make it fast as hell. what do you think that motor would be good in.

well, seeing as it is a 7.3 Liter... a CAR might not be the best idea... try an SUV, or small pickup...

if your wantin to make something fast you can still make it fast but also still use the diesel for its torque....i recommend putting it in an older ranger or and older bronco. i have an '89 Bronco with a 351W so im perdy sure it'll fit!!

ya its in good condition but im going to need it for when i make the swap. hmmmm idk let me talk to my dad. im only 18 and im saving it for when im older and it was going to be my project when i can afford it. so i might sell it and just get an adapter plate made for a smaller simpler transmission when i make the swap. what is your offer. the truck only had 224xxx miles on it and i rebuilt everything and the clutch is still like new

ya that is what i was thinking. i thought it would be badass in an recent bronco(not bronco II)but i still want something really rare like a muscle car that blows black smoke with a big ole powerstroke symbol. i been thinking a international scout would be cool
