I would also love to see a p-pumped 6.7!
But getting back to the stroker kits, I seen an ad in the paper for stroker kits for a 5.9 cummins from freedom diesel, so i called freedom diesel a little bit ago and talked to Isaac. He said that the kit wasn't supposed to be in the ad i saw, and it was accidentally put in. But he said they did do a few, and that they aren't doing them anymore because of liability. He said they changed the crank (for a different crank throw to make a longer stroke) and He said they changed the pistons too and he said they usually bored them a little too so it would end up to be like a 6.5 or 6.6 with it bored and stroked. I'm not sure if they change the rod or not, he didn't say, but i'm guessin they do. He said that they sold it as a kit and said you had to do some machining to the motor to get it to work (I'm not sure exactly what) but he said that some of the guys he sold them to didn't do the machining and it didn't work out for them causing a liability issue, so thats why he said he's not doing them anymore. He said it did give more horsepower, but mostly more torque with the longer stroke. He said it gave about 35% to 40% more torque. I asked how much this kit he sold cost and he said it was just around $2000 for it all, which in my mind actually isn't too bad, cuz technically thats a fresh rebuild with a bigger stroke and bore giving more powa/torque!!!! He said he knew of some other places that were startin to do stroker kits for the cummins and that some were even doin them without having to have the motor machined, and some not even having them have to be bored out. He couldn't remember the phone number of this place off the top of his head, but he said that they are out there and I am searching for them!!! I think it would definately be cool to try and would be rare!
