99+ Ford® Super Duty® to Cummins® Engine- Overview
What does it take to put a Cummins engine into my 1999 + Ford SuperDuty?
6.0 Powerstroke problems?
That's right, we solve "6.0 Powerstroke problems" by sending you a Ford Cummins 6.0 replacement installation package.
See our new website for more details, or call (406) 755-8878
Here is a 2001 F350 with a 2004 Common Rail ISB.
If you are planning on doing the Cummins 6.0 swap or changing out a 7.3 or even gas engine, the following information will help you to gain a better understanding of the overall conversion. For a brief overview read the text below. For a more in-depth overview we recommend clicking on the following PDFs to view them…

The Cummins swap into the 99 and newer Ford SuperDuty is perhaps the easiest physically so far because there is more room under the hood in this particular Ford truck. You will use the engine components that are already on the Cummins engine (Alternator, A/C Pump, Power Steering Pump). The main custom parts you will order from us are the engine mounts, alternator regulator, bushing kit, tachometer kit (if applicable), and the transmission adapters.
You will use the stock Ford diesel or V10 radiator. If the truck had a Ford diesel, then you will also use that intercooler. (If it is a gasser, then just install a Ford diesel intercooler from the same truck.) If the donor truck had a diesel, you will need a Ford throttle pedal and cruise control servo from a gas version truck.
We provide you with a bushing kit that will help you install your Ford oil pressure sensor and your Ford temperature sensor units into the Cummins engine so that you can simply plug them back in to your existing Ford engine harness.
Revision To Be Made:
To the Ford Truck:
- No fire wall revisions are necessary to the Ford truck.
- If your gear ratios are 4.10 or lower, you may consider a higher set (such as 3.73's or whatever similar ratio is available for your particular truck).
To the Ford Transmission:
For the automatics from behind the 5.4 V8 and the 6.8 V10 gas engine trucks as well as the 5R110 Torqshift (03+), our Adapter Plates use the Ford 6.0L diesel starter. The same is true for the 03 and newer ZF6spd. For the trucks that had the 7.3 Powerstroke diesel, our custom Adapter Plates use your existing Dodge style starter that is already on your Cummins diesel engine. The starter ends up in almost the same place that the Ford starter was, only it has to be a little bit higher. This requires you to trim your bell housing where the starter will otherwise hit (as illustrated in the manual). [Note: Not all Ford transmissions require this same trimming, some older ones more, and some newer ones less. There is no trimming required for the 6.0L 5R110 TorqShift, the 5.4L 4R100, or the 6.8L 4R100 transmission bell housings.] You will need to trim the Cummins engine block a little bit in one place to allow the starter to go into the adapter plate straight (also illustrated in manual).
12V: This Cummins engine is easy to wire as it is completely non-electronic (explained in installation manual).
24V: This Cummins engine does have a computer, but is not too bad to wire as we send you instructions with your 24V Cummins engine mounting kit that will help you get the job done.
Commonrail: This Cummins engine is fully electronic and is a little more complicated. However, we help you out by rebuilding your Ford engine wire harness so that it plugs into the Cummins engine wire harness. If you are wanting to use a Commonrail, we suggest using either a 2003 Cummins engine or an early 2004 Cummins engine for easier installation. (With these earlier Commonrails you can usually hook up the Ford cruise control servo from a Ford gasser [if you presently have a Ford diesel.])
