Keep the 12 valve, you've really got the best combo IMO.

We are close by each other you could always put that 12 in mine and then put a 24 in yours this winter.

Keep the 12v and if you can build another one with a Common Rail. If not, just keep modding what you got!

Your setup is nice. I would hate to change it if it's working for you.

I get a lot of crap from the Cummins boys for running a 24V instead of a 12V. I personally like being able to tune with a few buttons. The 12V is dead simple though.

Go with what you want. There are lots of guys running some pretty mean CRs now.
