if ford did adopt the cummins engine they would have to do a hell of alot better at fitting it in chassis and meshing it with the oem side. if it would be anything like the 650's and 750's i would rather have the powerstroke or a ford branded engine because frankly they are a pain to work on, i work for cummins central power and absolutely hate working on these things ugh. but with some time and engineering i think they could pull it off. as for the tranny stick with a torqueshift, they cummins and allison combo are poochy and feel like they barely pull there own weight and again i deal with this alot in busses and other fleet vehicles. a voith auto tranny is MUCH better than an allison IMO. but all in all if they did put the 6.7 cummins in super duties, you would still have just as many turbo, egr cooler, injector problems, crankcase breather filter freeze/plugging issues (not a ford problem), and calibration issues as the 6.0 psd has/had and even the 6.4 psd. ive done countless of repairs reguarding these issues since they hit the market. im a cummins man myself, but i love my powerstrokes 7.3, 6.0, 6.4 i dont care which one, there good engines and good trucks i hope ford can make it big with the new one they have in the over because i plan to buy one in the future. just my thoughts.

Just look on the net and you find lots of allison issues and few with the torqshift.

No! Ford needs to make its own engines we don't need no third party involved jacking the price up even higher. And besides, Ford makes the best d engines for cars in Europe so they have the expertise to do it for the SD if they desire
