Ya they all will, right now the water temp, oil pressure, volt, and speedo work. I have to still buy a kit for the tach and hook up the boost gauge.

My goal with this truck is simple reliability. When I am done I will be able to pull start and drive the truck with out any batteries.

E.M.P proof....is the motor going to make around the same numbers as the 6.0 or is it closer to what the cummins was stock?

I don't know much about the cummins, but that seems odd to me. I'm on a stock turbo and make #s way higher than that with my duramax.

should be interesting in final #s like fuel economy and such once it's done. sure will be tons more reliable that's for sure.

good luck with the build.

love the V8 pic

that's why I said what I did. not familiar with the cummins so I wasn't sure what the limitations are for the stock turbo what he was starting with

cool build and it should be a very reliable truck after he's done. several friends of mine all have issues with their 6.0 fords.

That makes it a bad motor. They're flawed from the beginning with only 4 head bolts per cylinder instead of 6
