Wouldnt it be cool to have a 7.3 Litre diesel engine in a 78-79 bronco? What all would have to be done? I know the 351M motor mounts wont fit the 7.3 and could a C6 fit or be mated to a 7.3 engine?

Well,
It is almost impossible but then again if there is a will there is a way.I know you wont be able to clear the firewall,wieght would be a major concern and smog/emissions.Then again it would be pretty sweet to see a 7.3 turbo diesel in a bronco.:thumbup

We've argued about it before on here... so far, our best conclusion is to get a complete 7.3 rolling chassis, shorten it, and do a body swap

Bronco's frame is too weak for the extra hundreds of pounds of engine, especially when you add a bumper and/or winch, no one seems to know if the PSD will bolt to a BB C6, plus you'll need the massive radiator, and everything associated with the diesel fuel (ie, filters, fuel tank, etc)
