    I would purchase an 08 F-350 and swap in a Cummins engine in it, but not the new one, it would be the model years with out all that new emissions crap.

    It would be considered a sin to take a PSD out of a truck and put a cummins in it

    Did you know that in the new 2007 dodge trucks with the diesels, you can't burn the high sulfur diesel, because it will wreck your cadaletic converter, or how ever you spell it. And those around around $2300, thats what I was told from one of the neighbors who owns one.

    Yah, my neighbor asked the people at the dodge dealer if he could run the high sulfer diesel, because he owns a trenching company, and all his equipment runs on that stuff, and the guys said that he could be he'd be putting new catalytic converters on it all the time because it messes something up with the emmisions. But his Father-in-law has the same truck but it's an 05, and he can run the high sulfer and it won't do anything, so they must hav started it this year.

    I think you can't burn the high sulfur diesel in most of the new diesels. I seen a sticker on the pump at the gas station.

    Sulfur doesnt ruin the catalytic converters IIRC it will however plug the particulate filters more and lead to more regeneration cycles. 04.5 model year + dodge cummins trucks have catalytic converters on them which means they were run on high sulfur diesel until ULSD came out in 07, 07 model year is when particulate filters and EGR was added.

    I know if you're at a gas station here, just below the diesel handle there's a little sticker that says it's low sulfur diesel with so many PPM's (particles per million). High sulfur diesel will clog the particulate filter. A catalytic converter couldn't be $2300, but the repairs to the truck after runnigh high sulfur diesel in it could be. A catalytic convereter is about $300 installed at the most.
