Get the torch!! I can make anything fit!
All the same under the hood unless it has rear a/c there might be a bigger hvac box. Also maybe a little more electrical mumbo jumbo under there for the rest of the lights and chit. Don't know if this helps but thats my take on the matter!

There has been a very sweet custom 4BT powered Ford Ranger at the TS outlaw event the past 2 years. It's awesome! I've seen it in several diesel magazines too.

Nice! Looks like a snug fit. Some of the guys from the Ranger boards were trying to get me to drop a 6.2 or 6.5 diesel from a Chevy into my Ranger... Didn't feel like cross-breeding, and that big V8 sounds like some work getting it to fit (especially that oddball turbo on the 6.5!).
