i found a dt466 running but has bad batterys for 900 about 3 hours away. he said that it would be drivable to get home but not sure for the price. got the core support and an idi dash for the truck yesterday aswell as fuel tanks and lines.

I'd go with the 466. The 360 has weaker parts iirc.
The 466 can be resleeved to a 540(?).

A 360 is certainly going to be easier to fit in a pickup. If you have an IH truck(not a bus) with a 466, you would be better off putting a dually bed on it, vs swapping the 466 into a 3/4 or 1 ton pickup. You get a manly pickup, and no troubles from many months of swapping. Didnt I see this on FTE also? I think they say about the same thing with a 360. There's no real weak points on a 360, other than the pump being way too small(9.5 or 10mm plungers). But that's all stuff that can be replaced. I'm one of the biggest fans of any 466 swap, so I wont tell you not to do it. I will add, it is a major vehicle reconstruction!
