Ford Excursion swap 12v vs 24v

hey guys im new to here. iv got a 2000 ford excursion with the 5.4 gasser and its just slow and terriable on gas, like 8-10mpg average. Iv got some one to do the swap but dont know what cummins to put in it.

I know that the 12v is cheap and amazing but is not programable at all. unless i have some redneck switch or lever in the dash.

the common rail is a good choice but is to much $.

the 24v seams a little more adjustable, but then has the ****ty vp injector pump. i would swap the pump for the 12v pump (p pump) or is there a good after market one.

what should i get iv never had a diesel before but its oviously the way to go. I want a truck that will get atleast 18mpg or more. and if its possiable get something to beat the local ricers.

any help would be great. since its all new to me.

Swapping the VP for a P-pump would take away the programing capability... so if that is an important factor, stay with the VP. Other factors would be horsepower goals, intended use, etc.

I would look at some of the 24V forums and get an idea of how others are building them... and what power they are making! I would think that you could run 500-600 horsepower and have that 19mpg with a 24V no problem!
