Angry Warranty or Blessing?

So, my 2006 has 140000 miles on it, and only 40k on the new motor. Ford has replaced the injectors and main rear at 85k, and at 99k number 2 & 6 had no compression. So they put a new short block in.

I had asked them why the engine had gone bad and they could not tell me why. About 4 months later the check engine light came on and the Injection Control Module was bad, so I replaced it.

Now, 13 months later and 40k miles later, I brought it in to a independent shop for an oil leak. He looked it over and found that the heads were leaking oil. According to Ford they only warranty thier warranty work for 12/12k...I find this to be crap considering they warranty the original engine for 5/100k.

I've talked with Ford "customer care" and they told me there's nothing they can or will do for me. So, now I have the option of fixing it, or replacing it.

I'm seriously debating on converting to a 5.9L Cummins.

Any Suggestions?

Heres what I was thinking if I dont do the convert...

-Head Gaskets and Studs
-EGR Delete
-Injectors
-Glow Plugs

Any other suggestions? I figure its gonna cost $10k to do the Cummins, so if I do this work I want to do it so I dont have any more issues with this thing.

Figure double if you want it right, and everything to work... A/C, transmission, gauges, throttle, blah blah....

10k is about right for a cummins conversion. the old 12v is simple whether u go VE or P7100 (P-pump best imo).
