When I build a truck in the future, I want to run a Signature 600/Eaton 18 speed. Nothing against Cat at all, I just think the Cummins sounds better with 8" straights....

Yea but a 3406E or early C15 are very easy to tune and 650-700HP is nothing at all for an otherwise stock motor. The small cats (which is any other model than mentioned above) on the other hand are not that great and cummins is the better route.

When I had my big trucks, my favorite was the 3406. Started better than the cummins I had and had more low end

Cat gets my vote.

'00 cc f 350 a few mods, and a bts tranny.
