Hi, new here. Sorry if I am posting in the wrong place. Just point me in the right direction. I am looking to buy a f350. Between 90' and 98'. I live in california and would like to avoid the smog issues and I like the old fords looks. What I would like to do is put a 5.9 24v. Put bags in the rear. Customize a bumper with spot for hydraulic mile marker winch and extra lights. Maybe some other things as I go. Question is what tranny to put in it? How to bolt up the cummins in a Ford? I heard there were two options. The front one being better than the side mounts because the side mounts are in the way of adding things onto the accesory drice unit. In general what will I need to plan for to get going. Does anybody know what the smog regs will be like in california for such a swap. I thought as long as it was diesel to diesel maybe I was allright, but I am also wondering if I have to have the same year as the original equiptment or newer. Sorry all of this is very....general, out in space. I am just trying to get a starting point and then I will have a platform to launch from.
