what all is needed cummins conversion

I have a 2000 7.3 and am just kind of pondering the thought of putting a cummins 12 valve in my truck. On fordcummins.com the have the full kit on there for right around 3k and im assuming that i would have to make a custom down pipe but what about the intercooler pipes? I was wondering if thats all you need or if theres more to it then just the kit. I dont want people telling me to just go buy a dodge because i dont want one if i did then i wouldnt have bought my ford. I think that a cummins in a ford would be the ultimate truck

I agree with you on the cumins/ford being the ultimate.

ANyway, I believe it was november, Diesel World Magazine had alot of info on Cummins swaps, including putting one in a Ford. Might want to buy a back issue.

fordcummins has a whole instruction manuel on doing the swap...i dont think you have to do a custom downpipe or any special intercooler routing...ill be starting my 12 valve motor build in acouple months and hope to get it in the truck about a year from now...700 horse should be some fun

There has to be something done to the down pipe unless you can just use the down pipe off a dodge. Im just really trying to figure out why people are saying that its going to cast no less then 10k to do the swap. I can get a desent 12 valve for around 1500 and the kit is about 3k. Im sure im missing something but what else am i forgetting that cost around 5k? I just dont really see anything else

I dont think the kit includes the adapter plate for the tranny but i could be wrong.

FordCummins.com: '99+ Ford SuperDuty Overview The kit at the bottom of the page looks like it comes with everything. Maybe people are just assuming that it has to be done at a shop and thats why they say atleast 10k for the swap. Im going to be doing it all my self. I was really looking into how much it would really cost to get my 7.3 up to around 500hp and its going to cost less to just put a cummins in there and you can get alot of reliable power out of a cummins for fairly cheap. I also hate having the same thing as other people i like my things to be unique

I looked and read closer after i posted that, im sorry. yes it does look like it comes with every thing except the engine for $3,003.... im thinking most people get the 10k price because if you buy an engine through them they cost i believe it said 6k for a 12v or 8k for the common rail. maybe
