Default Project 12 Valve 5.9 Cummins swap starts 5-1-2010

Well I have 2000 Dodge 2500 ext. cab 4x4 with the 5.9 gas currently in it. I am swapping in a 12 valve out of a 1995 3500 truck. I purchased the whole truck so that I would have all of my necessary pieces to make this work. Truck has 230k on it but the motor only has 60k on it, it is a Cummins Recon straight from the factory....even painted tan!! I have already got the transmission going with Suncoast Converter, HTS valve body and Sonnax billet input shaft. Going to run 5" exhaust out the back and put delievery valves, 3k springs and boost elbow in it for the extra ponies. I work at a independent shop and we do alot of diesel performance so it should come together nicely. Pictures soon to follow.
