So it begins... Obs 24 valve swap

As the title says I'm in the beginning process/planing of a 24 valve swap into my 92 F350.... Omg I'm so excited! Lol...

I have a 2001 dodge 4x4 standard 6 speed write off that I bought... Before I rip into it and start selling parts I don't want or need... What am I going to want off of the truck?

I'm thinking engine, transmission and transfer case, maybe rad? Will the intercooler work?

Any pointers?

Re: So it begins... Obs 24 valve swap

Ok... Been doing some... Mmmm more like allot of reading and I'm starting to think that I'm going to use the dodge rad and intercooler... Going to take some measurements tomorrow... And more searching the net tonight...

But I'm not seeing allot of info on nv5600 transmission and transfer case portion of the swap...

Will the nv5600 fit in the truck? What about the clutch master cylinder... Will the Ford one work?

Re: So it begins... Obs 24 valve swap

Don't know man, kinda doubt it though. I'll just depend on the plumbing. If the lines and fittings are the same, then it'll work. If they aren't, then it won't. Also the relationship between the size of the pistons is going to be important too. Same reason you can't just stick a bigger brake master on your truck. It's a hydraulic thing.

Well looks like it's been done on other trucks... I found a thread on a superduty and a suburban... I'm thinking the Ford mc should work if I can figure out how to plumb it...

Other option is use the dodge mc... Might not be that hard to bolt it on the firewall...

Wiring looks doable. Looks like all it really needs is the usual keyed power, 12v and ground... I've read it's only about half a dozen wires to make it run and then all the gauges, lights, wipers etc to the cab.

I'm leaning towards using the whole engine and under hood harness and mating it to the Ford harness at the firewall. Also remember seeing a fuse box? On the drivers inner fender. Be nice to incorporate that into my swap...

Still need to choose motor mounts and decide if I'm going to keep the engine fan or run e-fans... Little worried about where the shifter is going to exit in the cab... And I like the idea of keeping the turbo away from the ac condenser. Also hope to keep my existing exhaust manifold... Although the manifold that has the turbo moved forward might be nice or needed.

Really trying to figure out all the peticulars before I start... I can't be without a truck for long. As it is I'm thinking it's going to take a couple of months with evenings and weekends but hopefully quicker if I plan and get all the parts ready beforehand.

Also had a thought I'd mod the harness in the dodge truck and see if I can get it to work before hand... Spoofing for ignition switch etc... Think I might just do that.

Honestly it's a really common swap.
You should be able to find any of the info you need.
While the dodge mc/hb can be made to work, be a lot easier to do a setup from that era truck. All of the F-SuperDuty trucks of that body style run hydroboost.

Found the dodge service manual... Omg it's 2900 pages!

Also going to skip the idea of keeping the dodge under hood harness and just use the engine harness... Way to much stuff to delete and edit out. Going to keep the engine in the truck for now and start on getting the engine wiring figured out in the truck before I pull it...

Guess it's time to start ordering parts! Clutch, gaskets, maybe a water pump just because, motor mounts and exhaust down pipe and full exhaust. And maybe a different manifold...

Honestly thinking about 4'' straight pipe. The guy I bought the truck off of took his new exhaust off and it's running right off of the elbow... honesty its not that loud... It's weird... Makes me think that straight pipes (big pipes lol) wouldn't sound bad. :)
