    Swapping in your existing dashboard would not be an option? Would some components not work nicely with the diesel dash? Its easy for me to suggest these things so I guess another reason may be due to the amount of work it may take or the lack of motivation to undertake such a project.

    The prices on everything are just sick nowadays. Ive priced out my 5 speed swap bits over a year or two ago now. Looking at them lately and the prices have jumped a couple hundo on the major component.... aka the trans. All other bits have risen in price as well.

    Yeah why the shit are T5's so pricy? They aren't really special and were in just about everything for a long time. I just don't get it. And the built ones go for more than a tremec. Weird.

    Here's some of the (re)reading I've been doing on turbos. Bookmarked this back in the day because the information about turbos is really universally applicable, and explained decently. http://www.allpar.com/fix/holler/slant-six-turbo.html

    Okay, maybe not universal because it mainly discusses carbed applications, but a lot less work, just add tune for EFI stuff.

    Hmmm, never thought of turbo as a mileage investment, but if one is good, two is better right? If i go twin-turbo will my fuel economy double?

    I found this twin turbo Mustang drivetrain for $3500 https://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/pt...746466939.html

    But I'm reconsidering the turbo idea now. Because that link that I posted before about turbocharging the slant 6, on closer reading, said if your compression is 9:1+ then you don't see quite as much efficiency improvement from adding a turbo. Through further reading, I figured out that you can just flip the mustang headers upside down so they point forward when adding a turbo or two.

    I found this thread googling around about building a 302 for fuel economy https://www.fordmuscleforums.com/all...que-302-a.html (some of the numbers are off, other posters pointed out in the thread).

    https://www.hotrod.com/articles/ford...ngine-buildup/ I'm thinking the AFR heads are going to be the way to go, but I'm curious if there's a better/best higher torque cam or intake combination to use with them for maximum efficiency.

    Turbos can add efficiency, but most people don't use them in that way. Its usually all about adding power, and if not done correctly it makes for an unreliable engine. I'd have a real hard time buying a used turbo motor without an extremely good idea of it's history and build. That particular one is squarely into the realm of power with a 302 where they are very prone to head gasket failures and general other trouble.
