    Ha, I figured you be all over this thread when I changed his title from engine swap to Cummins engine swap.

    BTW, the other guy with the 6cyl has a Th400 behind his. Jason has a manual trans behind his. I'm trying to find the 6cyl guys thread, but his was built when he got here, so there isn't much tutorial with it, just Q&A about it.

    Yes sir! Saw the cummins swap and thought I'd take myself a peak. I've had it in and out twice in the past six months due to the damn dowel pin that most pre 2003 cummins owners face.
