    As for the Cummins thing, i saw an 80's slammed chevy dually yesterday, all white, with a cummins in it...had a badge on the fender from some place..i couldn't remember the name. Truck was the coolest looking/sounding thing i've seen in a long time! That would be pretty trick.

    As far as the 7.3 to cummins...if it isn't worth the money why not have your 7.3 gone through after it quits @500k miles?

    I neve rsaid Ford was in the Govt pocket, just mine. And when time comes to toss my personal '06 6.0, yeah I'll mst likely go Ford again, but I'll still be pissed when a sunroof actuator arm fatigues on a 2000 mi round trip, leaving me contemplating hearing protection, or when the EGR cooler pukes from, and get this, a bad weld, not bad fuel.

    Party on, Edsel.
    PR clone is fine.... AS long as I still have my job... Auto industry, what the hell was I thinking?
    Please remember 6.0L is international, and as that company put it "Here at International, we take pried in our product, all issue's reguarding the Engine will be taking care of". That was the first mistake FORD made.... Trust.

    good day

You'd think you and FoMoCo would learn...
    Here we go again, another person telling how Ford has done this, and done that!!

    Has Ford needed any money from the Government?
    Has Ford filed for bankruptcy like Gm and Chrysler?
    Why has Cummins approached Ford about a full line of Engines and tranny's?
    Why is Gm pulling most of their money (government money) out of PROSTOCK NHRA?
    Why has FORD (that would by my dept.) built an all new pro-stock motor?
    Why do tax payers have to pay for Gm's and Chrysler mistakes, but yet both companies filed for bankruptcy, and we still have to pay?

    Looks like Ford is the only one who can stand on their own!!!!

    Yes we had to add the after treatment to it (emissions), but only RE-gening on one bank. Un-like the 6.4L (both banks)'

    6.7L will also get an all new 6 speed automatic trans with and SAE #2 bell housing.

    Move over Dodge, Chevy and 6.0 - 6.4L owners!!

    If your thinking of purchasing a diesel any-time soon, might want to wait and check out the all new SUPERDUTY!

    Had a 7.3 and now run a 6.0 The 7.3 was just the greatest tank for rolling a load, hands down. The 6.0 is more of a quick daily deal, but knock wood, I've never had to do anything to it for 72K. The 7.3 liked to eat cam position sensors and so there went the fuel pump signal...

    I still wish I had the 7.3 for brute grunt and if I could have, I'd have freshened the thing up- studded heads, new turbo and intake, 86 the exhaust and upgrade the cooling to the tranny. I have to guess that it'd be cheaper to go this route instead of getting another truck.

    All that said, if I could have the durability of a Cummins in my PS, done deal. Nothing else, no tranny, suspension or nada, just the Cummins.

    spend your money at a company in colorado called destroked and drop a 5.9 cummins common rail in that bad boy they have all adapters needed in house and mount that cummins directly to your stock tranny that for some extra bucks will rebuild and make bullet proof for you i will be doing this to my 06 6 liter as soon as the warrenty runs out
