Thinking of goin CUMMINS

So heres the deal guys. I love power and Powerstroke but i cant afford to put the power i want into these motors. If i go to a 12 valve cummins i can make serious hp for a fraction of what it would cost me to do it to the old 7.3. Tell me what you think and if you will hate me if i do this.

is there anything wrong with your motor??

if there is i can understand....but if there isnt...then whats the point of dropping 10 grand into a motor swap when you could put the same money into your current motor and make some HP out of it..

I agree, with that kind of money, he should easily be able to get to 500hp
