7.3 sick

I had two dodge cummins before my new 7.3 never had one before an wanted one I must say I think im sold on the powerstroke I put a chip an exhaust on it an it already is lifted this thing seems like a rocket compared to the cummins.im very happy with my choice.

Better do some more research buddy!! Running tunes without gauges isn't real smart, especially if you are rolling coal often. You say nothing about a better flowing intake, so I can just guess what your EGT's might be. And no valvebody for the trans, so a new 4r100 may be in your future. Not trying to scare you, but you need to do the supporting mods before adding more ponies or you will have failures. So welcome to the forum, and please fill out your signature so we can know everything about your truck, including year!!

Oh my!!! How great! I am glad you are enjoying your truck. Most cummins guys are so radical you can never pry them from thier cummins cult. It is very refreshing to see someone (like myself) who has owned both trucks and can offer an OBJECTIVE opinion.

What are some of the things you like better about your Ford and what are some of the things you liked/disliked about your dodge.....

I'll bet they are similar to mine.

congrats on your new pickup.

Thats right! Glad to see he joined the smart side.

Hope he enjoys not putting an injector pump on every 100k.

The cummins seem to make big power at the fly wheel easy.....but it is hard and expensive to get it to the wheels.

Ever seen the sticker "Dodge makes it cummins shakes it" ?

they need one that says "Dodge makes it cummins shakes it apart"
