Re: bronco diesel?

It would be best to use the 97 and down dieses, because they have the same chassis as our broncos, It would be harder with the 98 and up. I would prefer the power stroke diesel I think they started those in 96/97?
I have been thinkin' about a diesel swap, lots of low end torque and better gas mileage but there are probably more benifits than that, they might last longer than say a 460BB?

Re: bronco diesel?

I forget where I saw it but there is a kit available to mount in a Cummins. I thought about it too but... they are HEAVY. I suppose you could mount in some F250HD or F350 springs to compensate but I think it would take alot of the performance out of the Bronco as far as wheelin is concernced. Then again. It depends on what kind of stuff you plan to do in the truck too.

Re: bronco diesel?

With out a complete Powerstroke equiped donor truck, the swap to a PSD would be near impossible to hunt down all the extra doodads you need. These motors are completely computer controled, even the throttle pedel is electronic (sensors, no throtle cable). It would be a long and hard process, but the outcome would be awesome! The suspension would be a tough one though, you'd probably have to get some custom springs made.

The easiest way to go is to swap in a 12 valve Cummins using the kit in the link above.
