..... You realize these barely fit in some of the full sized trucks they swap them into?

Plus the weight is retarded and yes you would need to conver to rwd.

Honestly not a good idea but i do like those motors. On of them in an old jeep or s10 would be nice but they dont fit well in an s10 either :D

Honestly, im not trying to bust your bubble or anything like that, i swear. But why would you even try that? Physically, how, especially vertically. Also, it would weigh probably 1/3 the total weight of the car. Without extensive, and complete redesigning of the whole car, it wouldnt be safe to drive being that front end heavy. Wouldnt it just be easier, and cheaper to build the zetec with a turbo?

Being the 4bt dry weight is 700 pounds, yes you'll need some serious frame work. Far as dimensions go There is no way, 26" long x 27" wide x 32" tall.

and in the world of diesel hp is irrelevant. TQ is where the real fun is.

One diesel you may be able to stuff in there is the old chevy 350 diesel, came in more cars than trucks. Figuring if you can fit a 302 and a 4.6DOHC the 350 isn't that dimensionally different. Oil pan will be the hang up though.

Lol yea we have been looking at it for a while. Don't think i will acually do it although if it worked it would be funny as hell! Could you imagine walking by a focus and it starting up like a diesel lolol. But im trying to figure out something to do this summer, i will prolly just build my zetec, unless it gets sold so i could get my dream Subie WRX!

i'm aiming togo over the 400whp bar with my zetec with 20 psi of boost! and still street drive it... if hks can get 475whp out of a zetec, then why can't i touch 400!?! i don't think u need a diesel for those numbers + 4 the cumming 400 isn't much of a mark.

lol yeh but 20lb of boost with a diesel is nothn im push 53lb with my truck, my brothers truck will prob be around 100, for a 450hp 4bt on #2diesel only ur lookn at like 60-70lb of boost depending on if you get head work done or if you just dump a crapload of fuel and just throw a huge charger on it. boost with a diesel is different then a gasser
