Well the biggest part i'm wondering about is wiring. Like making all the electronics work, with all the new emission stuff i don't drop in a motor just to have it not run because the computer won't play together.

94-98.5, but I don't just want to run a hot wire to everything. Also have to fool the computer for the regen and everything else.

Easy cheesy- We can set you up with everything you need! But why an old 12v in such a new truck? Go Commonrail on that new of truck.

People on a budget are the ones who use 12 valves. Common rails are to pricey for me still.
