hey im asking for some advice. im postiing this thread here because i dont feel like hearing the bashing of how i should just stick with the 6.0.
i have a 2003 F350 Auto 4wd with the 6 liter. i was planning after deployment to get the truck bulletproofed(truck runs but my OT/CT split is up in the 20s) so i was gonna dump about 9-10k into the truck and get it all done up, BP oil cooler, ARPS, BP water pump, Fuel regulator kit, valve job and what not. already has BP 6 phase ficm
and blue spring and gauge.
but my brother(sold me the truck) asked what about just swapping a cummins in it? soo hmmmm i start searching and now im really interested. ive drove his 98.5 twin turbo and built tranny(dodge) cummins and it was a pretty nice actually(dodge body and chassis aside)
so in my research i figured i could do the swap myself with the help of some buddies who are a little more expierenced but none of us have done a job like this before.
i wanted to put 2003-2004.5 CR
in place instead of the 6.0, i would do a
p-pump but the unfortunate thng is im stationed in california with emissions testing and even my home state of ohio has emissions. the factor of passing emissions is probably my biggest deterent. i was imagining spending about 10-12k for the swap doing it myself but if i cant register a truck theres no point.
so if anyone out there can chime in on expierence with this possible swap or getting past emissions after a swap please feel free to share info!!!
thanks for any help!!!
p.s. if there any info on my plans or current truck that will help just ask
