your truck electronics will never interface to the CAT.
with stock dash electronics.
won't have speedo
won't have tach
won't have engine temp
won't have oil pressure
think whole new gauge and interface system. find a wrecked F650 with the C7, Allison and all truck electronics. year or 2 later, you may be driving a CAT powered Dodge RAM, then again probably not.
ABS will never work
forget an '06 or newer with CAN buss, nothing will ever work.
rebuild what you got, dance with what you brung.
block and crank are most likely good, they seldom go tits up in an injector melt down.
may be lucky and just need 1 new slug and a rebore.
these parent bore blocks are simple, easy and low priced to dry sleeve if cyl. wall is damaged beyond 1mm overbore.
$15,000 max for everything with a 1mm overbore on all holes for extra displacement, coated pistons so you aren't so likely to melt it down again, 2 micron commercial fuel filters, Smarty, big cam, twin turbos and she'll rape any C7 on the hills.
Will make CATs cry and piss in their exhausts
