CR and 12v

Alright guys finally want to get another truck to play with. Now what would be better for me if i wanted about 700 hp? Price plays a big part in this so what would be better and more cost efficent (truck included in the build) I'm thinking a 12v but let me get some opinions.
Thanks

that depends. Do you want to make the power solely on mechanics or would you like the ability to change up tunes to create different levels of power easily ??

You can do a lot with electronics on a CR that can't be done in a 12V. If you're mechanical skills are that good on a diesel... you could do it in a 12V cheaper

I would go with a CR simply b/c you don't have to have that power all the time...

and i like how a 24v wasnt an option

24v's are great daily drivers I just wouldnt own one for a race truck......

ANYTHING a 12v can do a CR can do it ...and probaly do it better.....
I like the 12v because you dont have the fuel restrictions. rpms. can eletronics that you do on a CR.. but the CR you can change your hp setting... 12v if you have it tuned for 500 hp ... guess what your stuck with it unless u change out parts. Me I like BOTH... but the 12v will make you more hp with alot less money then a CR

I would go with a CR if I was doing it again. My reason is most 12V have many miles on them and need a little attention with other things such as the front end and drive line. A 700 HP truck is going to require work to the drive line no matter what you built it out of. A CR is a newer body style and usually a nicer interior with better options. Just from the engine stand point you can run bigger turbos with less lag problems on a CR but I don't think you will be able to go 700 on a single without a lag problem unless you use NO2.

Any dodge truck with 50k+ on it will need attention dodges eat ball joints and tie rod's....... as for HP....... there are plenty of 250k+ 12v's running in the 11's......

Alright thanks for all the input guys. Still not sure which one i want to get. I'm leaning towards the 12v just because it would be cheaper but on the other hand i do like to be able to switch between power levels. So i really dont know what i'm going to get but we will see.
Thanks
