    what year and motor is your truck? and are you doing the work yourself or paying to have it done? It could be up to $15,000 or more.

    DO you plan on putting a 12v in it or a CR? My race truck is a 06 f250 with a early 04 common rail.

    To be honest I have no clue im not really serious about looking until something happens to my engine or have another use for it. I've seen tons of these done I was just wondering if anyone didnt like it or did it themselves and it was way more than they were expecting when they got into it.

    I hate mine. Definintely should have gone with the 8 mpg 460. ;)

    Seriously, I love it. I have a 77 F-250 that I put a 12 valve cummins in. I did all the work on my own. It wasn't easy but not terrible either. I'm considering doing a swap into a super duty to for my next daily driver.
