We first started this site for ourselves. During research phase, we were getting overloaded and disorganized with our reading notes and we needed a place where we could access them from anywhere, anytime.

Then, we started converting the van and documenting it. The effort we put on the website slowed down the van conversion, but the positive vibe we got from the comments motivated us to keep doing it and put every details we could.


We sincerely hope we could be of any help.

    Your build is inspirational…We are about to purchase our new one but are struggling with which engine to choose for the platform. We see you have the 3.7 and we were wondering your thoughts on the power, we will travel in a somewhat mountainous area, the Sierras in California and Nevada. We like the idea of the EcoBoost engine but dont know if we need it. Any help is appreciated

      It all depends on expectations I guess… the Transit (or any cargo van anyway) definitely doesn’t have a sport feeling, so we think the 3.7 matches that. It will bring you up the hills, but stick to the slow-lane. We chose the 3.7 for the price & mechanical simplicity.
      Everyone that drive an Ecoboost seems to rave about it. I’m sure it makes the drive more exciting and make it easier to pass others. I would say that if your budget allows it, go for it! It might helps for the re-sale value too.

      Let me know what you decide! Good luck!
