My thoughts exactly. I figured they would have at least done an 03-07 Cummins in a truck that new. That's gotta sound ugly. Nice beautiful Ford with that old, rattling, mechanical Cummins under the hood. I bet it sounds tough :doh:

Oh come on, the 12V Cummins is a fine motor, with a fine note... hell of a lot less clatter than the 7.3. It makes you wonder why he put it in such a NEW truck though... I would think a low-miles 24V 5.9 would be the way to go, or a 6.7 if you could find one...

I think the old 12V belongs in an OBS or old superduty, in my humble opinion.

We share the same opinion. I'm not knocking the old 12V, I'm just saying it's a little dated for an 07 F350 Lariat with a lift :tard:

Indeed... my buddy drives a '91 Ram with a 130K 12V. Kids are getting bigger, and truck is dissolving out from underneath him with the salt here... he's on the hunt for a crew cab OBS gasser to swap his motor over to... hell maybe even a superduty gasser.

And... the VE pump can produce sufficient black smoke and go-go with the proper fidgeting :)
