Re: 6.7L Cummins conversion project

Holy smokes! How did you get the opportunity to work on their van?

Anyone seeing his work here along with other creations----its no wonder he's asked to do other projects where his creativity and execution excel.

I kinda think Optima is lucky he's agreed to work with them.

Re: 6.7L Cummins conversion project

I stopped receiving notifications from this thread so I figured it was abandoned like the other cummins install attempt on another 4x4 van forum. But I started researching if a 05-07 coil spring f350 D60 is a better choice than my 88 kingpin plans, and low and behold your still at it! Sweet!

Here's a little vid of my cummins E350 beast towing 15k combined after my rebuild at 80 mph, 2300 rpm, 850 egt, 14 psi, 14 mpg. A few days later I got stuck in loose stuff with my open diff, so it really needs to be converted. Bad



Congrats on the progress!

Re: 6.7L Cummins conversion project

Yep, I'm still at it! I'm not giving up on this project, it just gets pushed aside sometimes for other things. I'll be back at it in October when the SEMA van is done.

Great video! Quieter than I expected for that model of engine.

Re: 6.7L Cummins conversion project

As an adjunct to this thread will you post details of the Optima SEMA work? Maybe a separate thread here or in another sub-forum?

I'd be highly interested seeing these masterful skills working in yet one more direction.

I was just going to keep adding to the SEMA van thread already going from the UJOINT build.

Re: 6.7L Cummins conversion project

This is a very impressive build. It gives me some good info on my 12v Cummins swap. Thanks for documenting everything.

Re: 6.7L Cummins conversion project

Interesting news out of SEMA... Cummins is exploring the public interest in a crate motor program for repowering your ride with 4,6 or 8 cylinder diesels.

I imagine that if enough people complete the survey, we might see this program get some legs... Oh the possibilities!
