It has Identical numbers to the 6.6 Duramax when it first came outHighTQCummins said:I just noticed something. That has an almost identical power output to the 6.0L powerstroke, and is 1.5L smaller. Hope all of the big 3 come out w/ small diesels for the 1/2 ton range.
I'm lost so the intake and exhaust ports are on the same side?!?!?!?!RodZZilla said:I like the idea of the reversed layout on the Intake/Exhaust. They used to do that w/the old Flathead Ford V8's since they had a siamesed exhaust port. Wonder what if any one will try regrinding the cam for the 6.6 to try it.

I thought it would just be intake on the outside, exhaust on the inside.
However, GM seems to be leading the pack. The smaller Ford "baby powerstroke" is kind of a joke at 225HP. No one will buy them in the 150 or Expedition unless they're at least 300Hp. I haven't seen any prototype from Chrysler other than the Liberty diesel, which looks to light for a 1/2 ton p/u or a Durango.Nolafishr said:I am writing on this subject to say that all 3 automakers are working on a new diesel for their half ton trucks, I remember reading about it, they should be coming out around 2009. It will be interesting to see.
Exhaust is in the valley, the intake is through the top of the heads (straight down into the cylinder)Scrappy said:sounds to me that the intakes are on the outside with the exhaust in the valley.
sounds likea good idea to me!
I am pretty sure they will all be in a "v" configuration. I know that Cummins is working on a V6 and a V8 light duty diesel that has already been put in a 1/2 ton (for testing)cajuncummins said:444, i'd go for the I6 too, i like the bigger bores in a little fewer numbers than small cylinders, plus the advantages of the higher trque and lower rpm range for economy, and you'd also have less clust in the engine bay, but you know, right now, any diesel in the LD section would be greatly appreciated, i can only hope ford or dodge come out with a format a little more to my liking
