    Sounds like a pretty good trade to me, just go over the Dodge with a fine tooth comb before you commit to anything. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yeah it's a gay-trag . Nv4500's didn't come out in dodges until 94' I went and looked at it it's very nice no dents and it has all the options for that year it also has the banks twin ram intake and an Exhaust brake but it doesn't run like it should it seems kinda doggy and it died twice on me when I pulled up to a stop sign and pushed the clutch in ( no the exhuast brake wasn't on )I don't think I'm gonna trade him my truck is alot nicer and pulls alot harder (both trucks have 4.10's ) if I do anything I'll sell mine and Buy another cummins

    93 and earlier Cummins aren't that great a motors. In stock trim they are nice but there aren't much in the way of big power boosts. My friend has a 94 and has a big time fuel pump upgrade, stacks with no muffler, turbo housing, and high strength clutch and that thing is a rocket ship with torque from here tomorrow. He jumps on it and it just jumps to 32 PSI of boost in no time and shoots off. Has the NV4500 too, I love that truck but hate the chrome stuff hes done to it. The 93s and all their Fuel pumps would just blow trying to feed real big power.

    theres no differance between 93 and 94 other than maybe the pump being turned up alittle more [ QUOTE ]

    [/ QUOTE ] Why not ??? there the same engine as the later models just before 93 they were Non-intercooled even the 24-Valves have the same bottom end as the early motors

    Its the fuel pump itself. Its different between 93 and 94. The older one can't push the fuel to make the power like newer ones can. I'm talking like 700 ft lbs and over say 275 horsepower. The pumps are different, you can tell by the fact that you can turn the 89-93 pump up anytime you want but you have to use a torque plate for 94-98(12v). I know that the numbers I quoted are "big power" but I've seen 94-98s pushing 400+ horse and 900+ ft lbs. We hit up the truck pulls once and a while. My buddy was told this by the guy at TST Products I believe it was. Thats where he got his fuel pump upgrade from.
