Here's a link to my previous post on getting the new motor fired up in the garage...

I'm ready to drop the tranny out of the EX, hopefully if it goes well I can pull the engine tomorrow too.

Good going man!

Are you going to shift it with all the dodge stuff or you going aftermarket shifter,...does anybody sell shifter for the 48?

The PCS is working great on my 4r100

PS,....Does your wife really know that once you get to drive it, she'll nebber get to drive it ever again. LOL

There you go We just finished up dropping a 12V in a ferd with the same front end. Its a heck of a swap but its all worth it when all is said and done. Good luck!

Looks good!!! Putting the V10 in a Ranger? That would be cool.

I skimmed the thread for an answer...but couldn't find one...

I'm curious...Why the swap? Other than the power/longevity of the CTD (which would be obvious). Was the 7.3 tired? Dead?

Thanks!

Tony

It's a V10 gas hog now. It was about 10k cheaper to buy a gas excursion vs. one with a powerstroke w/ 100k on it. Also, it's much easier, cheaper, and more fun to mod a cummins vs. a powerstroke.

Just ordered a MBRP stainless exhaust system and some Dipricol gauges (boost, EGT, fuel, and tranny) for the EX from Rip at sourceautomotive. Hope to make alot of progress this weekend.

I just realized I've still got about 35 gallons of gas in the fuel tank I intended on running it near empty before starting the teardown. Oh well, I guess I need to find a "few" gas cans...

I got some small stuff done on it tonight. Removed the brake booster, vacuum tank, cruise control system, PS hoses and gear box (replacing it with a new one).
