Deboss Garage recently shared a video detailing the costs of a typical Cummins engine swap. You can bet with projects such as 6BT powered Dodge Ram and a 4BT powered Chevy Tahoe he gets a lot of people asking how much it would cost to swap a Cummins diesel into their vehicle. The total comes out to between $11,150-$12,650 CAD or around $8,634-$9,795 USD.
|Price CAD||Price USD||Parts/Service|
|$1,500||$1,161||basic rebuild (head, pistons, rings & bearings)|
|$2,000||$1,549||adapter plate, flywheel and starter|
|$500||$387||alignment fluids, fittings, hoses, machining|
|$4,550||$3,524||70 hours labor at DG shop rate of $65/hr|
|$11,150-$12,650||$8,634-$9,795||Total + shipping and taxes|
