But a V8 is usually shorter than a straight-6, so there will still be some clearance issue to be addressed. No rocket science though.

That’s right but the only clearance issues I’ve encountered is that I have to relocate the Fuel Shutoff Solenoid and the “glove box” or one cubby in the dog box will need to shortened to give clearance to the rear valve cover.

As I said, no rocket science. BTW I'm sure you might find some way to overcome any practical downside of having to get rid of some space in the glove box and a cup holder.

Actually with the newer console, it has everything I need so the slight modification will not make any difference.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Don't forget the before and after pictures. A well-documented engine swap thread is always more pleasurable to follow.

BTW that has led you specifically into the 5.9 Cummins? Was there any other option you'd be considering?

Thanks, I’ll keep the pictures coming.

I chose the 5.9 Cummins because it’s reliability, simplicity and the ease of finding parts available to make it more powerful and efficient. Plus I had two of them here in the shop. Haha

Thanks,

Jonathan

Well, even though a 4BT could already be enough for most former users of a V8 truck or van for professional purposes, a 6BT is also a great powerplant. It does seem kinda pointless that Cummins would only take so seriously on the repowering market with the R2.8 when it already had some good options on its parts bin.
