A cummins in a 08 superduty would be awesome but I would start with the 5.4L gas motor to save money and go from there.

On the other hand I really think that the 6.4L will shock alot of people by the power potential it has once the aftermarket gets up to speed and cans all the crap holding it back but only time will tell. I think this is fords best shot at the run a the crown.

another idea i had was taking a new f150 because i like the bodystyle and putting a cummins in that, how sweet would that be! i know that is getting off the subject of a superduty conversion, but still stickin with the cummins idea

I love your enthusiasm bro, and im sure a lot of people would like to have the option of doing that.....but that will never happen. Polaris deals with thousands of dollars in warranty work each year....Ford and OE's spend hundreds of millions of dollars in repairs each year. Not to mention who is going to handle the design and fabrication of putting a competitors engine in there vehicle? Cool idea but very far out in left feild.

Just let it blow and find a shop that is certified in doing the swaps.. It would have to be out of your pocket but hey if thats what you want.There's a Ford Cummins swap on the cover of Diesel World. That maybe the way I go when or if mine ever goes.. I'm a Ford fan all the way but as for the 6.4 being the crown I'm not sure.. Already had issue's with the flame thrower as simple of an issue or not.. I drove a buddies 6.4 and liked it but in my opinion Ford needs to ditch International , which maybe coming when their contract is up.. Til then I dig my 6.0..:Thumbup:
