Common rail 7.3

Anyone here have a common rail 7.3? I've heard Swamps can do one, just curious how it is...

Can you purchase it or is it kindof like a "prototype"?

There was a thread about a mechanical injection 7.3. Same idea. That thread has your answers. But yes, still in testing. Last I heard it was 16k for the kit. That's not labor.

16k really isn't bad but I would almost guarantee the labor would surpass that number LOL

A mechanical 7.3 and common rail 7.3 are two entirely different things.

The only thing a mech and common rail unit would have in common would be the block

I know but the numbers thrown around were for the CR one.
Maybe it was just me, but the whole time I read it I had the CR in mind.
