Thank you! That's quite a compliment in this crowd!
Yes, I have the MOOG cc880s springs in right now. They were a tad stiff with the 5.4L. I'm hoping they are just right with the added weight of the Cummins/Allison.
The 5.9L common rail engine is essentially the same footprint as this 6.7L. There are differences in the turbo, engine mounts and some of the accessories but for the most part, the fit would be very close to the same. I think the engine fits nicely in the van with lots of room to work along the sides, from the bottom and from the dog house. The front is a bit tight though. There's room to fit it in there but not much extra.
