My build up 4BT in 06 f150

well i just got one of the biggest peices to the whole process but now i have a bunch of questions for anyone that knows

Well today i just bought a 2006 f150 xlt 2wd with a blown motor with only 54,000 miles in perfect shape. i have 6500 as of right now to spend on the conversion so here are some questions i need help with to start out
- how will the brakes work with a different motor are the vacuum brakes or are they worked off the PS pump
-fuel system what will i need to change and whats the best pump to use?
- gauges is there a way to use my gauges?
- key it possible to use my ignition?
- what motor and trans combo should i find?
- is the stock radiator sufficient?
- what mods should i do to the motor before installation?
- is the stock susp strong enough?
i have never owned a cummins always been a powerstroke guy so i am new to all this and thank you for your help
-Cory

Wouldnt a 150 be overkill for just a 4bt? Unless they are priced very close of course.

Re: My build up 4BT in 06 f150

You will either need a vaccum pump or a way to convert it to hydro boost.

They make some smaller twin turbo kits, there is a pretty good 4bt forum out there that might help you with the swap better.

There should be no reason why you cant use the factory key switch as well as many other things.

Radiator should be plenty big, my buddies elcummino runs a stock radiator with a 6bt cummins so i would bet your fine.

The electronics in the F-150 are going to be a nightmare...

Shouldn't be, plus the Airdog 100 is about the exact same price. I was just saying it would be a good route for filtration and a lift pump to apply the fuel and pressure needed for a solid lift pump
