Re: FUMMINS....WHY?

Because "muh 12v reliability". Its reliable for the same reason the 7.3 is, its a gutless old turd.

And apparently its cheaper these days than the alternative of just fixing your truck and treating it right.

Re: FUMMINS....WHY?

as cool as the fummins seems I never think you get it 100% dialed in
with full cluster and cruise integration not to mention the automatic tranny shift module and getting it all set up

he also said his choices were limited do to the DEF years but and not wanting DEF but Dodge was the last to use DEF and why wouldn't you just run a def delete ?

i think would opt for a 6.7 if i was doing a swap

Re: FUMMINS....WHY?

why? because everyone and their brothers sisters exboyfriends girlfriend knows that the legandary cummings is a gold plated magic motor. it will make 9,000 HP and 15,000,000 ftlbs torque just by adding a 12 inch exhaust stack and a few stickers to the back window, hood, and front fenders.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
