If ford gets the cummins and ram doesnt......I think we can kiss Ram trucks bye bye unless they can come up with a great engine design. The cummins is why half the people buy dodge trucks

Yeah that's true. Its the only reason I would consider buying one also the only new diesel with a 6 spd. I also heard along with that rumor that Allison transmission would be an option behind the cummins.

A 7.3 is old and dead and obsolete technology. It will only be a CR mech. injection motor from now on. Unless something new comes out. Why have such a big motor when you can make twice as much power or more from something smaller?
Along with emissions, you won't get the same motor at all.
The whole "Cummins in a Ford" was because a long time ago, Ford owned stock in Cummins. A small amount I believe. But the whole crowd that now says "6.0s suck, they break, I hate them" originally started the whole "Ford will now have a Cummins motor in the SDs" because the are uneducated and ignorant.
Besides, the 7.3 wasn't Ford's anyway. It was IHs motor.
