Well... one thing I can tell you.... that will be a tight fit.

While it's only 22 cui larger in displacement than a 7.3 powerstroke, the inline, six cylinder DT-466 is a large engine.

I've seen some pictures of some conversions in progress, and there wasn't much extra room.

You are looking at electric fans in front of the radiator, and the back of the engine still requiring some firewall massage most likely. Also, I'm not sure how well it would fit as far as cowl height!!!

My suggestion, if you want to use an International engine, would be to find a DT-360. They are dimensionally similar to the 6bt Cummins, and would be a much easier fit.

If you do it... take pictures!!!

A DT466 is a much bigger motor then the T444e. That would be really cool though if you could pull it off. The DT466 is a great engine.

They make pretty good power, uber reliable, in most cases rebuildable in chassis. And they are everywhere.
