Question V-10 to Powerstroke or Cummins

Hi, I also have a 99 f250 CC 4wd with the v-10. I put a paxton supercharger on it and it ran real well til my local dealer burnt up my computer a couple of years ago. It has ran ok since then but its not what it was and I am considering puting a diesel in it. Has anyone had any experience swapping the v10 for a diesel. I would like to put a powerstroke or cummins in it. I would like to use the tranny I have now if that would be possible. I dont know much about these swaps so any information would be great.

Thanks

I think you have the 4r100 tranny, and I'd suggest a cummins swap.

Cheaper then a PSD, older 12v's are all mechanical, there are tranny kits that will adapt for the cummins.

hope this helps.

Cool, what ever I put in it, I would like to have good performance, as well as good mileage. What do you think would be my best option.

I think a 12v would be pretty cool. They definetly perform good and I'd say average they get around 16-18 mpg with mods.

Can you chip a 12v or what do you do to them as far as mods?

it would be a lot easier to just buy a vehicle with whatever engine you want in it and then put mods on it. keep in mind that when you go from a gas to diesel, you need to mess with the smog guy to get approval.

there is no smog check for Diesel engines as of yet. there is for a gas engine. if you don't the DMV there are gonna want a smog check every few years. the smog guy will open your hood and say:"that engine isn't stock. WTF!?!?!?!"
