After alot of research and figuring out the cost involved I decided to look for a cummins and found this yesterday in a truck that guy couldnt get title for.

I'd look into a VE swap. Then you can run adaptors with the stock lines. Or so I've read on here before can be done .

For sub 400whp the ve is hard to beat. The variable timing, even if its not much, starts better, gets better mileage and has better manners than a p7100.

Its running g although starting with key can be a problem. I think egts are creating a no start. Which I will call Sean at diesel conversions see if it's a flash issue. Then recheck everything and hit the road......sure is a good feeling to have it mobile again.

Bout come to the end of this build beside having a noisy carrier bearing and doing the cruise with the cruise helper setup...I do want to recommend dcs and Sean at dcs for all the tuning hes done to get truck spot on, he is amazing and would recommend to anyone looking to convert. Got to diesel conversion specialists and they will have your back all the way til the end. It drives and sounds better than I could have ever wanted. Anyone need help hit me up I will try my best to get you going in right direction.
