maybe a 5.9 Cummins?!?! LOL Sorry, but the 12v Cummins is arguably the best, most reliable engine ever offered in a passenger vehicle.
The 7.3 has CPS issues, a Rube Goldberg designed HEUI injection system, potential cavitation issues, HPOP issues, cold start issues, etc. etc.
the ONLY issue a 12v has is the KDP. you can nix that issue from every being an issue with an hour of labor and a tube of silicone.
no need to do head studs on a mild 6.4. no real need to do EGR delete if you just run a delete tuner early. dpf delete takes no longer than installing an aftermarket exhaust on a 7.3.
the 6.4's will start in the cold and have a beast of a transmission. arguably not as reliable as a 7.3, but power-to-power, they're pretty decent. hollar at me when you have a reliable 7.3 making 450+rwhp and let me know how much money you have in it.
