6bt swap in 97 Dakota...?s
I have always wanted to swap in a 12v p pump 94-98.5 in my 97 Dakota with NV4500 5spd. What the plans are for now... I have all the legal issues worked out with DMV, still have to get it inspected once installed tho. Have been researching this for a couple of years slowly.lol... Im am open to all recommendations, scrutiny ect. I want to build it right the 1st time. I know allot of people put the 4bt in the Dakotas but if Im doing this much work Im going big lol. Ive only seen 1 Dakota with a 6bt so far, so anymore info would be greatly appreciated.
Parts: Im still searching for an 12v, tranny&tcase. I have D60s front & rear from 85 f350 already, planning on leafs.
My 1st ?: in a tight fit for the engine would I benefit from a bent down manifold instead of the straight (normal) one? Gunna want to run twins one small one larger in future.
Thanks for the help!
