I have heard nothing about the 4.4

Can some one enlighten me about this engine? Who makes it, what are some of the specs, and what kind of power does it put out. I take it is going to have a lot of electronics on it. SO conversions will not be affordable for quite a while.

No.

If you search Yahoo finance or any other financial site, you will see that Ford announced that they have (again) delayed the 4.4L in the LD F-series.

Why? With diesel selling at a PREMIUM over gasoline, and the new 3.5L EcoBoost returning nearly the same fuel efficiency as the 4.4L diesel, it doesn't make financial sense to offer both. Being that the EcoBoost is "done" and the 4.4L is not yet certified, it's thumbs down for the diesel.

It's going to suck because I'm pretty sure Chevy already has their's designed.
