There are some people on the forum, & many resources to help you with a Ford/Cummins hybrid. You might have to do some cutting, welding, & fabricating, but's it's been done over & over. One person in particular is ONEBIGDOOFUS. He's got a whole album of his Ford/Cummins swap. Check it out!

They're non-intercooled too, right? His best bet would be to look for a '94+ Cummins 12v for a swap.

Also the 90 has the VE pump, where the '94+ has the P7100

Yeah, all the new 12V stuff bolts on (from What I've seen/heard.)
Just makes a performance buildup a little more pricey.

If all you have is the short block anyhow though the sky is the limit, you could put the 24 valve head on it and the p7100 pump hell if you are building it build it up right.
