I am very happy with my 2001 ETH. dynoed David 231hp bone stock, exceptional fuel mileage, just watch te fuel pressure and that puppy will roll. I like a 12 valve also but i really dont think there is a 12 valve out there that can line up with me on fuel mileage!

Alot of 2001 eth get excellent fuel mileage, I think it was one of the best engines cummins put in the dodges

So is ETC and ETH just a code from dodge or cummis? or dose each letter stand for something.

its just the order code, in 2001 to get the eth option you also had to get the DEE option so alot of times people write it as ETH/DEE dee is 6 speed
