[QUOTE=neeltburn;1117108] I know that Dodgefarmer has had nothing but good luck with his 07.5 and still has it with (What Mike) about 150k on it now? The 6.7L does not like a lot of idle time
Neel...I am at 142k now.
The smoking under the hood when using the EB is a new one on me. What color is the smoke that you see? Off the top of my head
could it be an exhaust leak that only shows up during EB since the back pressure will be at its highest? The other thought is somehow the turbo oil seal is leaking under EB pressure, but then that oil would be pushed into the exhaust or intake so thats probably not it (just
as I'm typing )
I am a firm believer that as long as the 6.7 is "worked" and not driven daily in city stop-n-go traffic you will like it. That being said the 6.7 does not get the mpg that the 5.9 gets, but I'll will give that up for the extra stock vs stock towing capability.
The EB makes towing on the mountain grades non stressful. I tow every summer my 5er,(12k lbs) over grades topping out at 10% grades with hairpin turns posted at 15-20mph on curves, and either you wouldn't want to drive an faster going up and you just let the EB do its job
Remember not to talk bad about farmers with your mouth full!
