Haha that is exactly what i figured would have been said about that. I found that post in a press i was reading and couldn't believe it, i was beginning to worry thinking they knew something that i havn't heard yet. I knew there were several viewers on here who keep up with the diesel industry and they could get it lined out.

That wasn't my theory that was a post in an article i read and i put it on here to see what some of you say about that, i knew it wasnt ever going to happen because otherwise dodge would have already advanced to the new 2500's with cummins. And no sir this being internet there is no way in hell i would give out my information like that are you crazy! LOL plus i dont have that kind of money otherwise id be in Kentucky betting it on horses haha

More proof of your wrongness.

Yet more proof of your wrongness.

More:

http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/ge...cummins-2.html

Still more:

http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/ge...s-cummins.html

However this being the internet you're now going to claim you know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy, whos drinking buddy is a big wig at Ford or Cummins and that he said blah blah blah.

So we'll make this easy. I will bet you $500,000 that Ford will not put the Cummins in the 2010 Ford Superduty. If you wll accept this wager please send me your full name and address and we'll write a contract.

Have a nice day.

Cummins is pretty much screwed that the biggest market for their engines is gone. Freightliner used to buy thousands of 5.9s and 8.3s for the FL series trucks not anymore it is all Mercedes power now.

When the contract with Dodge runs out no more market for the 6.7 it wil only be Paccar that will be buying them. Ford buys some for the F-650-750 but then again those model trucks are not huge selllers compared to Freightliners.

Gravel Rat -

You need to check out this page...look very closly at the engine itself in the "pickups (F250)" then the "performance" tab. Or ask someone to help you with protugese: (Yes, that is a 3.9L B-series in an F250)
