i got a line on a cheap 2001 f250 with a blown gas V-8.
Is it economically feasible to take a gasser and drop in a 7.3?
The 7.3's are becoming harder and harder to find, so I was thinking maybe I could maybe drop in a 7.3.
Any help or insight would be appreciated.
"economically" and "diesel" are kinda contradictory terms, right?
Seriously, not it would be MUCH cheaper IMHO to just buy a 7.3 power truck
not without a donor vehicle. So if you can find a rollover or completely totaled one then it could be close. But its better off to fix and sell the v8 and buy a 7.3
^^ another option is a cummins swap...wiring won't get any easier than a VE or p-pumped 12V...still not cheap. Your spending at least $5-6k....at least!
