I don't know a lot about it but from what I have read and hear it's a fairly popular swap.

I don't think that the cummins weighs as much as the PSD so that in it's self is a plus and with the right mods that cummins can be one hell of a contender.

I just know others more knowledgeable than I will will give more info.

Look here:

Very popular swap...but not for the faint-of-heart.

Thats my dream swap! I would not do a 24 valve common rail though. The 12 valve would be the easiest and the 24 valve IP engine would be the middle ground. The 12 valve is simple and still one of the most powerful engines when modded.

TJ is right, the 12 valve swap would be much easier because there is less electronics on it to mess with.

I was very impressed with what the Cummins 12V can do on our local dyno day back in Dec 07. Most of them were over 500hp with a few, not very expensive mods, compared to what it would take to get 500hp out of a 7.3.

If this one were a long bed it would be my dream project. Someday.
