I have owned 4 12v Trucks and 2 24v trucks, one being the HO 6 speed version. I now have the 12v. The 24 valve is not reliable, both of mine had injection pump issues at low miles. My current 12v has almost 200k on it and runs like new. My 12v also gets better mileage.

I will run 12 valves as long as I can just because they are simple and pretty close to bulletproof. I have my 3rd >200,000 mile truck right now, and my cousins truck just rolled 300,000 and still rolls alot of coal.

Also, no pump problems is a big deal. An injection pump can cost as much as a gas motor.
yup i love the 12v i got from u by the way call me about that but i love the engine in the other 12v we have

I know there are more electronics, but they are still wicked easy to work on.....I love my 04 and a half

i just have a FASS and an edge EZ right now, and have quite a few buddies comment on how fast it is, and one with a powerstroke that wont even think about lining up with me....his excuse is "I dont wanna make you cry" 01 stock powerstroke FTW!


People shy away from the electronics like they are some kind of plague, kind of like how the hard cores still run carbs on the gassers when fuel injection is so much more efficient.

I'm not knocking the 12v, it's a great engine and for less than 100$, you can make some great power and smoke. The only downfall I see is that you may have some hard luck trying to find a 12v in the MI area with a clean body. If your willing to travel to get yours or have it shipped, you may have better luck. Whichever you decide, stay with the Cummins!

I have a 98 12v and love it. I have 207000 on it, but I won't talk bad on the 24. they are both good engines and the new 6.7 seems to be a horse at least in a freightliner with a 24' box on it.
