Has anyone looked into this motor or even know what they are selling for? The size is nice...shorter and lighter than a 3.9...and they are available up to 110hp. It appears to be a Common Rail system with the electronics bolted to the side of the block. Anyone know anything indepth?

As a matter of fact, I called Cummins Tuesday and asked about the QSB3.3. I was transferred to a distributor local to me. (New Orleans, LA) The salesman quoted a price of $7374 dollars including starter, larger alternator, hydraulic pump, rear sump oil pan and #4 sae flywheel housing. He also said the QSB3.3 has a 120 day delivery time and he has to order a minimum of 3 from Cummins.

I WAS considering installing a QSB3.3, NV3350 & NV241OR in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee instead of purchasing a 1998/1999 Durango for a 4BT conversion. I really like my 1998 Cherokee and wanted to convert it.

I believe I can perform a 4 BT conversion including the cost of the ZF 5-42 transmission & adapter and BW1356 transfercase for less than the cost of the QSB3.3. Hell I can probably perform the swap and a front SAS for the Durango for less than the cost of the QSB3.3.

The QSB 3.3 is a common rail system....has an ECM bolted to the side of the block. I take it you are talking about the older all mechanical 3.3?
