IMO you cant go wrong with a p-pumped 12v. Simple motors, easy to work on, puts up tremendous numbers and is still very streatable.

What is this motor going into?

The p-pumped 12v are a great choice, but EVERYONE has one all with the sme mods....boring.

Truck hasn't been decided. Anywhere from half-ton to 1 ton. Platform will be decided after drivetrain has been selected. Possibly leaning towards doing the half ton version of what the auto makers should of been making years ago

Nice. International, 12V, and 7.3 are all great engines. Need reliability, longevity and just plain power.
