12v or psd

well i have a 2001 f-250 with the 7.3 and zf6 tranny, truck is my dd but is also used to tow my off road truck around on a trailer and also a small service call/ off road recovery buissnes, looking at my options on either building a 7.3 or doing a 12v cummins swap! ive heard that you can make some big power out of the cummins on a fairly low cost, and you can still get great fuel milage. im aiming for 400-450 hp range, love the 12v cummins so im leaning towrads one but just looking for every ones opinion! from the swaps ive seen they look like the fit in nicely and work great!

compounds are the best of both worlds, more air, more boost, and easier to spool than a large single charger

Good luck and keep us posted with lots of pics
