I think you can do a few mods to the pump and gain a bunch of HP AND MPG...
I was told you should install an EGT, boost pressure and fuel pressure gauge BEFORE you do that mod tho.

You can get a lot out of your 160 pump. Buying a different pump isn't really necessary unless you're planning on going crazy with the power levels. There's a long list of things I would do before I would drop a couple grand on an aftermarket 12mm or 13mm pump. Also where are you located at in sw Michigan

I don't mean to talk down on you or anything but it sounds like you need a couple weeks worth of research before you do anything with the motor if you didn't know it was mechanical pump or how it works your going to be throwing money away trying to build a motor become firnilair with the motor and it'll save you allot of money as a person that is part of the diesel community we need more educated ppl that can defend the cause not iliterate ppl that just want to blow smoke. You said puller? 2.6, 3.0, mod ? What class's do you have local what are your needs from the truck? You won't have a 3 class truck that is well manored for the road. You also won't have the Need for 500cc of fuel just trying to save you a bit of money and maybe some stress

if you asking if you can put a chip on a 12v cummins i really dont think you should get into building a pull truck or have the capabilities of doing such a task.

Alright I just noticed that you started this thread on April 1st. Is this a joke or do you really need some advice? If so I would be more than happy to answer a few questions you may have.

No it was a serious queston I no it has a mechanical Pump. I just wasnt sure if you could chip them or not. Im not fimilar with a cummins. I drive a powerstroke for a daily driver those i know alot about. I dont want it to be a strict pulling truck so no not a 2.6 or 3.0 I just want to have the power for when i take it to pulls.

x2

Go to cumminsforum.com and read the sticky threads under the 12v forums and just read and read and read.

Upgrade your trans first if you haven't done that already. Add gauges too.

They keep our shop busy that's about it Ford's really don't have anything going for em beside their d60s you want a good truck? Buy a Cummins put in a kingpin Dana60 you won't have troubles if you buy a manual. In all seriousness I work on diesels every day Iwould never own aFord not because of brand bias gov bailout or any other thing ppl say is their reason you want good fuel econ get a pre emission duramax you want power and reliability buy a Cummins. Ps you can't always listen to hear say unless you know someone at the shop they might be shittin ya. But if you have any questions need any help don't be afraid to pm me 12v is my specialty :)
