Hey guys, I know I don't post a whole lot in here anymore, but I thought this project might interest you since this swap is going to become a necessity in the coming years. I will be posting pics and explaining things here as questions arise, but you can also follow the project on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_6OEBrY6vNe4HK4CCpO21w

Looking good in the engine bay and the rest of the paint looking good as well.
Haha I always figured the multifuel engine would be like the cockroach, still running after all other engines dead and gone.

Have you researched a DT466? I have not, but am impressed with them.
Yes I have researched them extensively and concluded that they are not the best candidate for this application. The length negates the installation of an air to air charge air cooler, they are much heavier than the Cummins, they still utilize a belt driven compressor, and they have many more points of cooling system failure which they are quite prone to failing at.
