I have a 97 f-250 heavy duty with a 7.3 5 speed. I am debating on swapping it out with a cummins. I want to build more power but after pricing things out such as injectors, oil pump, fuel pump, head studs, turbo and so on I'm thinkin i might save money by swapping in the 5.9 and building that plus i'd be able to get more fuel economy compared to the 13 im getting now. I would like to stick with an electronic Cummins but now sure which year i should go with. Im debating between the Common Rail or a later 24 valve. If i do the swap how hard will the wiring be? And would i be able to buy a programmer and hook it up to the truck? Thanks
