Robts Cummins Conversion update

Well Since 2004 my truck has gone through alot of changes. I bought the truck in late 2004 after trading in my 2002 7.3l crew cab. I love the truck but they offered me 30k for it and it had 78000 miles on it and I wanted a toy. The 2002 saw winters. Plus I got 0% for 6 years See Video of my 2002



Next I bought the truck and installed a 6" lift and 37on 22's. It had a TS intigator and a powerpup. Was all right but soon it had a SCT and then it was game on. ALso the stereo and tintied windows went in.






After this in the winter of 2006/7 I installed the new 22" wheels, fox shox with billet resivors and new 2005 front end. Also inslalled a detroit tru trac and 4.56 gears, billet badges,stacks, Nitrous, train horns, remove the step bars and factory stickers and recon lights

At silverlake in 2007 on memerial day I blew my turbo. At that time I realized I need more so I called ELite and order 190,VGT-ss, and a suncoast tranny. This lasted a short time since I knew I wanted compounds.This was a short time plan. Everyone was back up on building compounds and figured I wait till winter. The only mistake was I had the weasle Bbunting fromBlackwidow build my compounds. Biggest mistake of my life. I would not recommend him to anyone. Here is my Elite combo. Worked awesome. With the 225's that I eventually installed and a 102 jet I hit 668hp and that was my finally number




So after that I decided to build the 6l, order the compounds and install a new hood and light bar. Also installed all HIDs. I also installed more gauges



Here is Stuck in mud helping me






So with that disaster I decided it was time to lay the law down and do a cummins swap.I bought motor is 9k on it complete with trans, wireing harness and transfer case. Everything..all pumps, belts computer,,,,everything. Perfect donor


So the motor came out of the superduty again( its been out 6 times to date)




The injector and CP3 were pulled and motor( cummins) was disassembled

Everything is getting painted, powdercoated and chromed on this conversion. Im also building the motor

Here is my cp3 from Wickeddiesels.com. I had shane polish the pump out as a bonus


and here is the motor



To date here are mods I have

1.Wicked diesels injectors and bad [email protected]@ CP3 pump
2.HHT turbo competition 66 with a 16cm stainless housing all polished out
3.MP8 from Ts peformance
4.Smarty s06 from Smartypower
5.Polydyn equal length header 2nd gen
6.New MAx MPG Snow meth kit from Snowperformance
7.Hamilton Diesels springs and billet pushrods
8.SB intake
9.Destroke motor mounts from Beans diesel performance
10 Custom Oasis Diff covers engraved Cummins Power all polished out
11.Fluidampr
12. Opie Water bypass by Opieparts.com
13. CFMPlus intake

I thought it would be neet to show everyone the transistion of my truck and see everything its been though

I want to thank my 2009 sponsors and will keep eveyone posted on this thread. I do have one more sponsor but still working out the details

Just out of curiosity, what all gauges do you have in there? It looks like the cab of Joe's truck!!!

Looks good Rob!! I love seeing threads like this that take you from the day a truck was bought all the way through everything that's happened to it!!

Do you have any idea of when the CR conversion will be done?
