just getting an idea.

right now i have a 95 dodge 2500 12valve cummins. im about to trade it for a 97 f350 with the 7.3 in it.

what are some benifits of having the stroke of a cummins?

im looking for easy cheap mods, to make it the most powerful tow rig i can, weither it be chips, intake, fuel, ect.

let me know what your thoughts are on it!

That alone has kept me from cummins. :-)

I did trade my 01 7.3 in on a 2006 5.9 a few years back, cause I thought that's what I wanted. Within 2-3 months I regretted it.....and still one of my biggest regrets of my life.

Which I suppose isn't too bad, if that is my worst regret. Lol.


Doubt this helped any at all.

well as you know the 12v has impressive cheap mods. for a 7.3, intake, exhaust, gauges and chip (custom tune) to start. thats cheap, next steps are injectors, hpop, re-tune the chip, etc.

the 7.3 seems to be more comfortable, the truck holds up better than the dodges. engine excluded.

didn't you end up with an obs in the end? So it really worked out!

personally I'm a fan of strokers but I have no complaints on the cummins.... i just don't like the truck around them. The cummins will be a little cheaper to get power out of since it's not computer controlled and you'll also get better fuel mileage. With new injectors, intake, exhaust, and a chip you can get a good tow rig. Just make sure you have a clutch or tranny to back it up
