Best place in Texas to have a Cummins swap done in my 6.0?

Yup - saving my pennies to have it done. The 6.0 was strong and fun but not strong enough for me I guess and I've lost faith in the motor. LOVE the rig, just tired of the 6.0 "issues".
Anyone know a good place to have it done down Texas way?

Subscribing... Not sure about Texas but I know a very good place in Geneseo, IL. Alan. Gotta warn you it's not cheap otherwise I'd have done it myself...

Drive it up and fly home... Fly back up and drive it home.

i know destroked.com says about 10 grand in parts (5k for an engine,more for a newer lower mileage engine) and 4500-6500 for labor......me personally, if i were to ever do a fummins...it'd be an old 12 valve. bulletproof engine, no electronics, etc. and you can get quite a bit of power out of them.

You might give Greg (one big doofis) a call, he might be able to hook you up.
I think he has done 3 or 4 of them.

There is a 97 F250 sitting in my driveway that has a 12V in it.
Its for sale
