06 blown engine
 
I'll be calling around seeing what they charge for a rebuild. I feel like for cost, its probably more worth my time to drop in a p-pump 12v. Would the 12v work with the stock auto trans? Or should I look at a nv4500/ nv5600? The truck is also 4wd and stock. With the exception being a mopar exaughst brake.

It would need, engine rebuild, new injectors, new cp3. So 11-12k worth of parts, vs 3-4k for a p-pump 12v, and 1,500 for a 4wd with upgraded input nv4500.

One of my buddies is a Cummins mechanic, he said just rebuild it, more worth your time. So I'll take his word for it. Sense itll need injectors, should I get stockers or something over?
I plan to build this truck, auto will need attention, valve body upgrades are good till 400hp. What would I need to do transmission wise for 500+?
What about fuel side for 500+?
And turbo wise. Compounds or a 66?

Buddy just had a shop rebuild his 07 5.9 and it cost him right at $11,000.

That seems like a pretty good price.
.. New injectors 30% over tips, 10% stroked CP3, tubes about $4,400
.. Engine kit $1,100
.. Nice Turbo upgrade $2,500
.. Guessing 40 hours Remove, Rebuild, Install $4,000

Damn, I'm $1,000 over budget

They didnít touch injectors, pump or turbo.

I know itll be 5k or so just for engine, 2500 for injectors, 800 for cp3. I know right around 8k to get it running.

Ill throw another option your way. Get rid of the 5.9 and get a used 6.7. You will get a lot more power out of the gate. The extra torque is noticeably different.

Can I drop in a 6.7? Do I need any extra controllers, or wiring stuff?

Depends whats wrong. I bought my 01 with a bad case of blow by . Turns out the previous owned ignored the injectors and a few ring packs shattered.
When I pulled it apart surprisingly the bores really werent scored. I sent my block to a machine shop and they where able to clean it up with a hone only .
I did the rebuild myself. All new bearings gaskets rings redid the head. I was able to go through the whole engine for a 1000$ in parts and machine the shop honing my bores and the piston pins for the rods.
I would take the engine apart and if you have the time and go from there . If you have the time do it yourself It doesnt have to cost much to rebuild a engine . You just have to take your time and pay attention to tolerances.

All 6 cylinders are tore up pretty bad.
2 pistons are eaten threw. Didnt get down to the bottom of the engine yet.

All will depend on whether block, head and crank are rebuildable.
Good 3rd Gen 5.9 blocks and cranks are getting as rare as panties on one of Trump's wives or women in pubic and as expensive as all his attorneys/law firms paying off the girls and divorce bills.

What are your motor precision assembly skills?
Good local experience Cummins diesel engine machinist locally?

Machine shop sleeving of a 5.9 parent bore block gets real expensive real quick
