Glad we got the experience and background behind that. No seriously, tell me why you think the 6.9 is a bad engine. How about the E9 mack? Is that a terrible engine too?
There's absolutely no information out there stating that diesel engines should be inline 6. NONE! If it was so much better, ford would have done it with their clean sheet design in 2011, General motors would have done it with their clean sheet design in 2000. Hell, even Cummins introduced a 5.0L v8 just recently. But those must all be junk engines.
Gimme a break nat, the kid started a conversion project thread, asked questions in it that pertained to HIS conversion, and then you ream the kid for it?. Is your goal not to have threads here? I'm all for keeping the tech sections clutter free and telling people to search before they post in them. But this is a conversion thread, if you have questions about your particular conversion, you should be able to ask them in your thread and not get bullied for doing it. You posted one thing in this thread that could be deemed helpful/non-flammable. The rest was just banter about needing pics, or the op being clueless.
Famousinternetjesus, sorry for derailing your thread, but this crap has gone on far too long.
