Like strokethis 07 said........smokinpete379, What damage was done to your original 5.9 block? Im just curious to why you didn't buy the 6.7 crank and throw it in instead of buying a whole 6.7. Which way do you think would be cheaper in the end?
6.7 crank in a 5.9 block yields 371 cubic inches; the added cost of custom pistons (I believe) doesn't make it feasible.
I used custom 12 valve rods for my build. They worked perfectly !! There are some differences in the top end but I didn't care about any of that because I wanted to reuse my 5.9 head. I'm sure you can buy a new block right from Cummins and go that route. I did purchase a brand new crank for one 6.7 from Cummins and I'm thinking it was around $800 my cost. I hope that answers everyones questions. :thumbsup:ok so did you use the 6.7 rods or aftermarket? and is there any diferance in the topends ? is a 6.7 head better than a 5.9 ? (i know yours was ported ) i see you also installed a hamilton cam (i'm sure that helped ) along with the other goodies .
i would love to add some bore and stroke for the added lowend !!
can you buy new shortblocks ? how bad would the price be ?
