6.4 to 5.9 common rail swap cost?

Just trying to find options for my truck. If the motor doesn't get replaced under warranty, I'm not so sure I want to spend the several thousands of dollars to replace the 6.4 Considered making it a fummins, but was seeing if anybody with knowledge on the subject had insight. Plan would be to keep the 5r behind it as its been trouble free. Any input is much appreciated

if your paying for it 20k and 5r will be questionable because you will need a stand alone trans controller and they don't work that good

Depends. Are you doing the swap, have knowledge of swaps, and tools? Or paying someone?

If youre doing it, Ill bet you could do it for 5k, paying someone 15-20k.

24v cummins swap into a superduty here:

5K wont cover all the parts by the time the dust settles. These swaps nickel and dime you to death.

Id argue it can be done, just have to think a bit differently. Im under 2500 in my swap, including buying the ford to start with. 99 crew, 4wd, 24v 6speed.

Figure about 3-4 times the cost and a lot of future headaches than just swapping another 6.4 in there.

How? You mean cheap? Squeaky cheap? I never do anything in life that way. I do things the right way.
