PSD Vs. Cummins in a 1979 F350

We here we go I just picked up a nice 1979 F350 4x4. Time to re power it. What is the best way to go>

I was thinking a 7.3 PSD or a 5.9 Cummins time to roll some coal

Both would have to be Turbo IC. I ahve been looking around & would like all the PSD guy's to tell what is the best route.

Here she is:




I will be running the dunes & local boggs, & weekend warrior.

What would be the best set-up for this rig. I currently have a 460 on the stand, 4.10 Dana 60 Detroit Rear Dana 60 HP KP front 4.09's locked, A NP435 trans with a divorced tcase.

So I could run a 2wd version in this truck with no problems.

i voted cummins just for ease of install, mechanical injection makes life a lot easier.
a 6.0 would be really cool though.

by the way Sweet Truck

The 460 is nice Might put it in my 79 short bed Unless I sell it

I am seeing the guys on here like the Cummins better so far...

Anyone need a 1976 Highboy trade for a 5.9 Cummins & 5 speed
