Well....I kind of view the cummins swap akin to putting a 454 in '69 Stang that blew its 428 Super Cobra Jet motor...it may not be to this level of heresy but it just doesn't feel right to me. I know, I know...big-rigs don't align with powerplants (Cat, Detroit, Cummins), and we all like to think we drive "big-rigs", but really, come on guys...also I am still a badge loyal kind of guy. Also, the cummins swaps use the older tech diesels...I like the 6.7L "green" factor, quiet factor, and pure Ford factor. Anyway, I am just daydreaming, my 6.0L only has 60K on it, and as long as I can keep my cool with its quarks (damn ICP/IPR), the 6.0L will be around for a while...but...if the a crate motor does come out...it would start to make me drool!
