performing a cummins swap in my ford, i was set on a common rail cummins but is becoming very difficult to find. i planned on being 700-800 hp as i am very familiar with the common rail.how does the 24 valve compare? what type of power could i realisticly make while keeping a daily driver eith decent mileage(mid teens).i came into a bit of cash so i am trying to do it right.

If you want more than 650hp on the street CR is your best bet imo. Its gonna be tough to get more than 650-700 out of a vp truck without the juice

if you want 7-800 horse and not smoke out the road get ahold of TURBOLVR and get a set of triple turbos very reasonable price and all the air you will ever need

hell buy a 24v with blown vp or from a totaled truck put a built p-pump on it with twins or tripples. ya and all the supporting mods studs, firerings built tranny ect. jeff garmon of garmon diesel performance in atlanta ga could help with tuning. he built a 800hp 12v in a 1500 1/2ton truck(rc,sb 2x4) and he can do a roling burnout at 70mph and he barly puts out a haze at WFO. granted thats a half ton but it will still do that in a 3/4ton. you might have seen it in diesel power about 4 months ago. its an 08 burgendy dodge 1500.

i think it will be a pita to get the ecm for the common rail to work right and have all the guages working.
