I had a 7.3, they are awesome motors. If you do a lot of towing and want reliability, then a 7.3 is it.

Fixed it. 24v's are not as much fun and dont get as good of fuel mileage.

you obviously dont know your cummins! or are you saying this just because you have a 12V? you can build tons of power mechanically with the 24V's just like the 12's but you also have the added option of electronically as well. and as for fuel econ....you can get great numbers with a 24V, but if your building power, your not going to get the greatest MPG's no matter what your doing it on.

Yup and any monkey can plug in a chip and make some smoke. I know its takes some work but the 12v is a way better motor.

I never said plug in power alone.....everything you can do to a 12v you can do to a 24v plus you have the added bonus of "plug in".....but since I have a 24v I guess Im just a so what do I know?

whats the old saying?........more fuel, more air, more power? well the CR 24v runs at 24,000 psi thats an awful lot of fuel.....maybe thats why they say 90hp injectors on a 24v out perform 210hp injectors on a 12v.....
