    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to find some cat engine info. I am looking at doing a 3116 or 3208 swap into my truck in the future and would like to find out what they run for horsepower and torque, both n/a and turbo. also has anyone done a swap of either? I am interested in trans and transfer case options.

    Well the 3208 is anywhere from 180ish ans an industrial/truck engine, and up to 450 in a marine pleasure craft application. 3116's were from 175 hp up to 275 hp and 860 lb ft in a truck application. The 3126 are up to 300 hp and 860 lb ft in truck. 3116 and 3126 are all turboed above 210 hp in a 3208 is turboed.

    Id either use a 540 allison auto or a clark 5 speed. As for a t-case id probably use a divorced NP205.

    /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif now i am assuming something like the clark 5 speed would be found behind the 3116 or 3208 "normally"? and pardon my ignorance (i am just getting back into my real passion in life (4x4's /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif) and have not yet learned about divorced xfer cases. how do you divorce the 205?

    No seriously some dodge trucks and some ford trucks came with the divorced 205, I have one from a Dodge which is passenger side drop.
    The ford is driver side drop for the front axle that is.

    The clark 5 speed came on buses and trucks 2.5 ton and 5 ton cab and chassis basicaly. They are big transmissions that can take the abuse and they are close ratio so 5th is 1:1 not overdrive.

    Your standard mated T-case is actually bolted to the back of the transmission. On a divorced, the t-case input and tranmission output both have yokes, and the two are connected via a stub shaft, think of a really short driveshaft.
