F-650 with Cat or Cummings??? Pros and Cons

Hey everyone....
I am looking at adding another ford to my roster. I want to pick up an F-650. I have been looking at the Cat engine, stock 300 hp no adds. I also found one with the 5.9 cummings, tuned to 350 hp. Was wondering if anyone had any pros and cons to either engine? I have been told the Cat engine is really bullet proof. Not real familiar on Cummings. Any help would be much appreciated.

Ok... any facts to back that up. Sounds more like an opinion. Dont want to hear one or the other are junk. Want to hear why one is better or worse.

The 650's got a C7

steaming pile of junk...

the 5.9 is a very proven engine. more power, better fuel economy, TONS of aftermarket support. You could always put a CAT license plate on the front of the truck if you just want to feel like you're big-riggin'

It's spelled cummins

Don't know much about the cat's but the cummins has a lot of goodies to add if you want a screaming 5.9
