Default 08 f-250 Cummins swap

Ok guys i finnaly got one of my customers to see the light!!!!!!

his truck has 62k on it with headstuds, rudys valve springs, WG, airdog, h&s, intake, ported rails, batmowheel and few other things.

Just small stuff keeps happening and he's tired of us working on it so he wants to see some options of puttin a cummins in his truck. prefer 06/07 so we could run EFI live on it. loves his truck but 6.4 just alot of trouble and expensive to work on. Input on this would be great, pics help, Pro's Con's and any offers on the motor lol.

fuel line from k16 to passenger fuel rail keeps breaking and had a few small oil leaks, up pipes need to be replaced. just a pain to work on. get more power out of the CR easier. its at 575-600hp now but with a cummins its so much cheaper. not ragin on 6.4s but cummins have proved them selves pretty good. plus i had a influence...lol

Pretty extreme for not wanting to deal with fuel lines, oil leak and that "flex/mesh" on up-pipes, but it'd be cool to see how it turns out.....tagged

I agree, not to mention all the "little" headaches he is dealing with right now will pale in comparison to a Cummins Swap.

Oh well.......

Interested to see how this turns out. Atleast he isn't going the really easy way and going with a 12v and is going with a newer engine. Is he going to use a 6.7 or a 5.9?

In some states it is required for the motor transplant to be equal or greater than the year of the vehicle. Is that only in states that do emissions?
