Wasnt sure where to put this so ill start here,feel free to move to appropiate area.
Anyway here it goes how hard is it to install a powerstroke diesel in a non computerized vehicle,do they make an aftermarket wiring harness or am i stuck finding everything out of a complete truck?
Is there a particular year of motor to look for? Most of my experiance has been around the 99-early 2000s with 550 trucks,i was very impressed with them to say the least!
And before you ask its going in my 69 chevy 1t 4x4 flatbed im currently building,yeah i know its a chevy but its been in family for 20 years and everything else on it is being updated/custom built as i go!
Ive allready got a mid 60s unibody f100 spotted for my next daily driver,so go easy on me here guys!
Ive never had any luck with anything from dodge so a cummins is out of the picture,and ive seen enough dura maxes get there boost gauges handed to them by power stroke diesels!
My goal for this truck is to be able to pull a car trailer or possibly a dragboat for long distances without having to beat a gas engine to death every time i try climbing a hill,or having to stop for fuel everytime i see a gas station.
I have a really spunky 427 i was thinking about putting in there,but id rather get more than 8 mpg traveling across country if i get the sudden urge for a road trip
