Find a good 12V and your set. It is cheap to build up, but no High end power I am waiting to find a 12V, or a 24V to swap out with. I would like to get a 24V with a p-pump on it, then I will be happy. My Bro is converthing his 24V to a P-pump. I can not wait to see what that truck will do. His truck is a 02 Dodge 2500, 90HP sticks right now, but he just got a 7100 pump and all the goodies to rip out that VP44. He also got a cam for it. I think he also has twins for it, but not sure if he has got them yet.

I just hope to see it when I get back from BCT and AIT.

its gonna be around 10k for a CTD swap.. for 10k you can get some decent power out of your 7.3 plus you have a 99 so your good for an easy 500

1st off let me just tell you how dumb you are for even thinking you want a 6.0 LOL good luck.

2nd i priced out a 12v at 500hp and a CR at 500hp then a powerstroke build a 500hp

I ended up putting the powerstroke back in.

It was cheaper and easier then the other 2 options.

No matter what if you want over 400hp in any of these motors you are going to have to put a lot of time and money in it.

A good ol 7.3 with some injectors/turbo and good tuning will put down 450hp all day long.
