    Not a bad looking truck, I would have cleaned up the motor before the swap...
    I have a 06 f-250 (1200 original miles) with a CR cummins out of a early 04 dodge. Should put down a little over 1000hp to the wheels by March :}

    I read that..very interesting. I helped a fella over on TDR getting his Ford A/C and Cummins vistronic fan to work together. As you know swaps like this can be very time consuming.

    For a 6.0 replacement in a heartbeat. For a 7.3 powerstoke, I don't know if I would be that gun ho on it. To update a 7.3 IDI... Yes it might be easier to update to a 12v Cummins

    I know of an 89 where they replaced the 460 with a 5.9 and it still sees lots of use pulling trailers.

    I will get some pics up in the next few days. All I have left is the wiring... which is the worst part lol. And IC pipes. The truck is a 06 excab short box 4x4. Fully loaded with leather. I bought it brand new in 06, put 1200 miles on her, put in a role cage and pulled the motor lol. I built the 6.0 then before I even put it in i changed my mind and built this cummins. Cut pistons, race cam, head studs, race valve springs, rocker studs, flux 6 injectors, twin pumps, aurora 5k turbo, full built ATS trans, and a lot of Nitrous:)
    The wiring will take me a wile because I suck at wiring but should be a blast when it's done. Should make 1000-1100hp to the wheels.

    If I remember correctly, the Disel Power Challenge had all but 1 ford trucks running Cummins. I see the Cummins powered fords all the time on weekends when I'm pulling my truck. I cant touch a cumming with mine, but I can run with most Duramax's. Them CR Cummins are crazy powerul.

    I know the ATS will hold up as well or better than any others out there. Not ragging on BTS, Brian makes a good trans to. We have a ATS stage 6 in my brothers race truck. His truck runs 11.9's on fuel with 35inch tires and we beat the HELL out of it on the street. I will say once you get over 600hp no trans will live forever, the only thing we have had to replace in my brothers trans is a set of clutchpacks. Thats with about 25k miles, 15-20 hooks on the sled and about 200passes down the track.

    I know this is a old thread and this is some what of a high jack , but might you want to share how? I have a 2005 CTD in my 2003 F550 and can't get the fan to come on with the ac. It comes on when the engine temp gets to 200F so I know the fan works. I have the fan and ac pressure switch wired right because it is the stock wiring harness and I did a pin out to make sure there were no shorts.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
