As for the engine any cummins with a p-pump will make power you just got to put in some work.

Your 160 pump and injectors are not going to be great for free power, but the 160 pump is also a better starting point if you want to make big numbers. The best engine for free power would be the 215hp 96-98s as the pump flows more fuel and the injectors are bigger. but the 215hp pump has its limitations in high hp applications due to its retard notches in the plungers.

thanks for the reply. but i should have stated earlier that the engine is going into a 79 plymouth trailduster
http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/c.../147335-project-cummins-trail-duster-ctd.html

and i am not going to use the factory wire harness or computer. so i wanted a way for it to shift into overdrive and lockup the converter with out the computer

also did a little looking came across the power kit at tst products. any one use their power kit? it puts my power desire right where i want it. bout 230 hp and 600 tq. is there any adverse affects to the pump or engine other then big power numbers?

You should be able to get that out of it at least without spending a dime

CumminsDatabase.com :: Turning Up A P7100 Pump

No adverse effects on the pump, but when you start adding fuel you definately want to watch EGTs and boost for safety. Im not sure how much that car weighs but im sure its lighter than a 8000lb+ ram so its likely that a bit of extra fuel isnt going to be much of a concern at all.

As for wiring up the TC and OD. Why not just use a dodge ram PCM?

They are a very simple system and it controls the grid heaters/charging and trans functions. I would try to rig up a PCM if at all possible. Save having to f-around with manual OD and lockup switches.

well the other guy who did the conversion said his truck weigh 7046 pounds.
i dont use the computer cause i dont like computers on my vehicle. whole point on using a mechanical injection was to keep it simple. that and i dont have the complete wire harnes just the parts that were attached to the engine. they cut the rest off.

and from what i understand an a618 (47rh) is just an a518 with a lockup tq converter. and i seen people use hobbs pressure switches for it. was just wondering if anyone actually done it on here
