Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

anything is possible, however, it is not cost effective

all the wiring harness would need to be replaced

the trans would need to be replaced,no adapter

you can boost the Hp of the Mack ,installing twin Turbo's

different injectors and Turn the pump up

I hope this helps you
