1996 12v Cummins Mods

I'm looking to buy a 12v cummnins. The engine has 145,000 miles on it in total. It was built with the following:

-compound turbo kit (s300/s400)
-5x12 injectors
-#5 fuel plate
-afc springs
-181 delivery valves
-60lb valve springs
-air to water intercooler
-3 piece exhaust manifold
-5" exhaust
-4000 rpm gov springs.

Truck has 800 miles on it since all of this was added.
A few people have told me that a truck with this amount of mods to the engine makes the 12v unreliable. Is this true??

only thing lacking from complete reliability that i see is an airdog or fass. modding a 12 valve does NOT make it unreliable

Does the truck have a built trans? Like said above looks good except for a fass/airdog.

Looks good to me, just watch the EGT. Reliability should not be an issue.

Make sure about what clutch is in it. With that setup I would think you will be well over 1000 ft lbs. I'm over 1000 with a small single.

Watch boost pressures. I didn't see studs on that list. I wouldn't push it over 50 psi on stock head bolts.

Do you two truly believe that an electric lift pump is more reliable than a mechanical one?

I'm speaking of long term reliability, not which one flows the most or has cooler filters.

Twins with stock DV's and 5x.012" injectors, sweet. Good thing you have a air to water intercooler to keep all that fuel cool with that huge #5 plate.

So are you going to buy an ice machine to run in the bed while your driving the truck around to keep the cooler stocked with ice?

Why does everyone have to hate on a new guy trying to ask a few questions and see if this truck is really worth it. I say it is but its really up to the owner and what you want to use the truck for towing, racing, pulling truck ect. Give him some slack.
