There are a lot of 453's in 1 ton trucks.

There are a few 6V53's, and 6V71's as well.

Anything else is a pretty difficult fitment due to size, but with time, money, and talent, anything is possible.

I think that your best bet for a tranny would be an allison...maybe a 545 (they are cheap). I dont know a lot about the detroits, but I do like them. I think that the detroits like to run good full out, and the auto would allow you to keep it in the peak rpm range.

my personal reccomendation because i've actually rebuilt one of these. would be the Detroit 8.2 liter, turboed. good for high rpm's, reliable, really strong, and very easy to work on. no computer necessary or nothin, plus its really smooth with a good sound!

you couldnt give me an 8.2. biggest pos detroit even built. put a turbo 6v53 in it. find a truck with a straight axle though. guy at my shop is in process of repowering his truck but isnt gonna use it because the engine wont fit with IFS.

I am running a 6V53n in my 65 f250 4x4 and the biggest problem i have is breaking the front axle due to the 1600 lb motor.
