If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If it don't stink, don't stir it....

and if it ain't disgusting, it ain't discussed.

Ford and Cummins, who would a thunk?

A better option for ford diesels than the Powerstroke.

What a monster for those who have no spending limits.

We can only hope these do not visibly smoke on acceleration, like some of the weekend truck programs do and are an abomination to mother nature when they are burning rubber and emitting like a smokestack.



Thanks to all here.

Ford Cummins swap is common on pick ups. There are 3 company's that I know of to do swap. This was needed when Ford made the Junk 6.0 motor. Very cool truck.

At that price I am sure the rolling coal system is already installed.
No aftermarket modifications needed.

If I had one of those big boys, I could still use my Kia like a dingy to get to and from the land yacht! I could probably rig up a hoist to take my little Sporty aboard to use for short excursions to tight places.

That is because at the time they had a deal with Navistar International. Another great legendary engine.

Mid-2000s and Cumins 5.9 was not an uncommon feature of the F-650/750. In fact, but don't quote me on this, I think Cat C7s saw service with some as well. Can't recall when Cumins went away ('11-ish perhaps?). Shaq's truck looks ridiculous. Hell, my truck looks ridiculous.

Chuckie, I had a 7.3. Sounded like a coffee can full of nuts and bolts, but damn that thing ran...and ran...and ran. Then came the the sad years.

Ford's current diesel (with Gen II updates) is a damn fine engine, by the reports I've seen. I've considered it. Hell, I'm still considering one (F-450 pickup so I can have some damn power again, as opposed to my underwhelming, diesel chugging 5500 de-tuned Cumins combo).

Not knocking the 7.3 Lots of them around here doing work..Old Smokey is going on 400K and is not as high on power as he used to be (neither am I)...BUt still burns no oil, keeps on going...My Daughter has two Duramax's ..Not impressed....

See now, I loved my D-max. I did a lot of work to it, but it had more power than I could use and got good mileage. In fact, I rather miss it. If you mod those things so they aren't breathing their own farts, they be good. Really, there isn't a bad diesel out there now in the pickups, but I've seen a few reports/pics of a certain 6.7 6cyl cracking pistons in that rear cylinder (tuned). Mine is so de-tuned that that will never happen (tunes available, but nothing for the Aisin, so, basically, no tunes available for me).

Mood: logic cannot get thru to the illogical

[*] posted on 5-9-2017 at 04:13 PM


emission control systems in diesels for the last ten years have made it almost impossible for a consumer to afford a 8 cylinder diesel truck.

New diesels are not built to last 400k miles. They are built to last the warranty.

Shaq is running for sheriff and the truck will give him the 'walking tall' look he needs to win.

Ford never "owned" Cummins....they had a 10% share and a seat on the Board of Directors for less than 10 years (1990-1997). That was the extent of their involvement.

Love my 6.0 and 5R110. Minor mods are all it needed. And the cost of those mods pales in comparison to $70,000 for a new truck! EVERY modern diesel has its issues. Including Cummins and GM/Isuzu. Pile on haters!

I think they are all good, some better than others, depending on use...
