sweet deal. only bad thing is the older cummins had very low hp #'s from stock so it takes a little bit to get em going.

They're non-intercooled too, right? His best bet would be to look for a '94+ Cummins 12v for a swap.

Also the 90 has the VE pump, where the '94+ has the P7100

Yeah, all the new 12V stuff bolts on (from What I've seen/heard.)
Just makes a performance buildup a little more pricey.

If all you have is the short block anyhow though the sky is the limit, you could put the 24 valve head on it and the p7100 pump hell if you are building it build it up right.
