The videos are quite interesting, thanks Ivan. I like the "plug and play" part of the installation - just like building a new desktop computer!

What I would like to see is a repower using one of those Cummins 5 litre V8's that they install in the big Nissan Titan pickup in the U.S.
Now, THAT would be a repower! 300HP and 5 litres, we're talking some real pulling power!

I really am surprised that Cummins aren't making the 5 litre V8 available as a crate engine for repowers. Perhaps the sheer size of it makes it only suitable for the bigger engine bays.

Cheers, Ron.

The 2.8 in the states are around 200Hp and 600 foot/pound. Thats no slouch and weight less than anything else on the market. All I have to do is find something to put it in. Had a Blitz lined up but it fell through.
