05 Fummins?

trying to get a little info and some opinions here. i have a 2005 F250 6.0. 74,000 miles. I have a egr failure and believe i have a blown head gasket as well. ive grown up on fords but my pocket book cant handle all this work to bullet proof it. so what im going to do is put an 07 5.9 Cummins in it. (i hope)
it has 72,000 on it and has a ppump that was put on it before it got to me.
should i take the ppump off and put the computer and vp44 back on? or leave it like it is? id like to eventually get the truck to 450+ hp eventually. while the motor out now im going to stud it and?... anything else? what do you think i should do?

I hate to get rid of my 6.0. but its my only option right now.

It's a heck of a lot cheaper to change the head gaskets, do the ARP studs and egr delete than to do a Cummins swap. There is a ton of stuff that goes into making a Cummins look and act like it belongs in a Ford.

I would not get rid of the 6.0!!!
Stud it and you will only be around $1500 into it. you seem like you know what your talking about so you should not have any issues getting it done!

I just did my build last month
We can help if needed during the process

Yeah build your 6.0L, take the heads off, get them machined, install studs, egr delete, oil cooler upgrade, blue spring mod, set of 155 injectors and youll have a really nice running truck.

07- 5.9 around $5000
48re/NV5600 - $2000 (If your lucky)

or 6.0 headgasket job with labor ~$2500 (Much cheaper if you can do it yourself) egr delete $200 and oil cooler $300

If your serious about a cummins swap, buying a donor truck (12/24 valve 2nd gen wrecked) is the way to go. Yank the motor trans and transfer case out and make it happen.

Otherwise build the 6.0, will be much cheaper than swapping in a commonrail.

Also keep in mind you have to modify the firewall to get the cummins to fit. Also, you get to deal with all the nuances of a Fummins. Cooling fan doesn't work correctly, cruise is intermittent at best, etc. May want to talk to some Fummins owners who are totally honest before you make the decision to go from a 6.0 to a 5.9.

an 07 5.9 wouldnt have a VP44 injection pump any ways, stock it should have a CP3 injection pump, but from what i have heard a p-pumped cummins is better in some ways and not in others just like every thing else. i still agree with everyone none the less swaping in a cummins even if you already have a motor is going to cost more then studding a 6.0.

A friend of mine has an 02 Fummins built by Destroked in Colorado. It took them almost a year to work out the cruise control. He also has a switch in the cab to turn the fan on when running the AC.
