MXT Engine swap to Cummins

A 5.9 common rail was the engine they should have put into the truck in the first place. The VT 365 was like driving a school bus. It now drives like it should and with the twin turbos makes it extremely fast for a 10500 lb truck! To monitor the new engine we put in a whole cluster of new automata gauges too. Here are some pics!

Awesome engine swap man!!. I'm about to do the same with my MXT. I was leaning towards a 8.3l with the 50" tires I'm turning. Any change you could post some more pictures of the engine bay? Please

Hows that transmission holding ??
