6.7L to 1500 swap
I've been looking for quite a while for a shop truck so I can put parts on for my business, but with little success in my price range (15-20K max). This has gotten me to thinkin how else could I get a hold of an engine and such to put parts on? Around me there are a ton of 3rd gen single cab 1500's going for like 3K with engine/powertrain problems. I also have a lead on a 6.7L truck that was rolled for about 8-9K.
Both of these and the fact that my hero BBRam is doing something similar with 12V now got me thinkin. He's setting up a drag truck which is all well and good, but i'm lookin to make a daily driver, whats the point of putting the time and money into it if I can only trailer it to the track on wednesday for a few runs.
I checked online and shockingly all the SRT-10 corner parts are pretty cheap and that would allow me to have bigger brakes and the higher spring rate for a bigger motor.
What do you guys think, would this be possible?
