Looking for 600hp reliable daily driver. This motor will do that pretty easily and the price was much less than the highly sought after common rails.

I kinda agree with Luke, CR is the way to go for this type of conversion :sweet

But I wouldn't do it to begin with, I like my 7.3 too much :D

Bears... the cummins is the better engine and the ford is the better body/ chassis so why not mix and match to get the best truck PERIOD.

Why mix? They are already mixed. The Ford runs a International engine and the Dodge runs a Cummins engine. Dropping a Cummins in a Ford makes perfectly good sense to me. On the other hand I would not drop a Dodge engine in a Ford but I would not hesitate to drop in a Cummins. I would seriously consider it if I had a complete engine failure.

well, that's a good valid point

and, well... uh...

kinda like the R134a thread... as long as you have it available why switch to a "substitute?"
