Switch to a Cummins?

More and more contriversary is boiling up about allowing the 6.4s to pull in the 2.6 classes due to weight and twin turbos, so thinking about starting up a strictly pulling truck maybe a 24v. Opions, would need to be a cheap build up so unfortantly 6.0s/7.3s are out. Just looking for a good strong easy to build up motor.

12valve Cummins = biggest bang for you $$

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

i think your cheapest route would be the 12 valve. lift pump, injectors, turbo, tranny, exhaust, and your set. tranny would be your biggest investment. you can pick up a older 12valve for pretty cheap.

well if you want power producing then get a d-max....but other than that any 12v i would go 94 and up....they just look cooler other than that there is no diff in the first gen 12v 89-93 and 2nd gen 94-98.5,,,,,,,you can get instant power by just turning in the fuel screw....the stock HX35 will support around 400 horse....the injectors will only let you upt to about 275.....so change those and get a nice intake add a stack and pull.....ohhh i would get a manual.....just add a suncoast....or south bend clutch....those auto cost to much to build up to pulling standards....

Not bashing Cummins or D-max or anything........but its kinda funny to me that Ford comes out with something to actually compete and run with a Cummins or D-max and they all start crying......

well i dont know rules are rules....if the 6.4 makes wieght then sure let them pull in a bigger single turbo inducer class....or that size duel turbos.....alls they should have to do is pull in the modified class anyway with 2 turbos....if it was me i would just put them in the 2.8 inducer class...it is kind of an advantage to be able to use 2 turbos while every one else only gets one....
