The big three all need a diesel that can get decent fuel economy; full size pickups/SUV's right now is their bread - n - butter. With rising fuel costs they cant have this market killed.

i sure hope the gas mileage on these things are good. Im really thinking about buying one of these when they come out, but if they don't get any better then 23-25 mpg city im not even going to bother.

Maybe I have driven big trucks too long but I am pretty happy to be able to get 24 highway on mine at 65mph. Mine is a one ton dually 4x4, but I'm damn curious to know what 1/2 ton truck that you know about gets the kind of mileage you are talking about? Please let us know.

I do like the idea. It has been a long time coming. If it's true about the old flatheads, seems like we can always learn from the past. I have always believed that.

Without some kind of visual I'm still a little lost on how the whole exhaust system works. Any one got a pic? Sure sounds interesting, would just like to see a visual to compare with what I'm thinking :poke:

That direct exhaust-to-turbo is a pretty interesting setup. I've looked hard at that pic and still cant figure out where exactly the intake ports are, though.

the info i got is from Diesel Power Magazine, January 2008 Volume 4, No.1, page 132
I tried to find a link for the article on www.dieselpowermag.com but i couldnt find it unfortunately

but i will pull info from the article to correct my previous info

Cummins V-8: 5.6L, 300hp/460lb-ft(460?? seems low to me, maybe 560?) 25mpg/hwy;20mpg/city, HPCR, VG turbo

Cummins V-6: 4.2L, 270hp/420lb-ft, 25/20mpg, HPCR, VG turbo

Ford/PSA Lion V-8: 4.4L, 350hp/500lb-ft, HPCR with piezo injectors, twin VG turbos

Ford/PSA Lion V-6: 3.6L, 272hp/472lb-ft, 26/16mpg, HPCR with piezo Inj, twin VGT's

Ford/PSA Lion V-6: 2.7L, 207hp/320lb-ft, 49/27mpg, HPCR w/piezo Inj, either Twin VGT's, or single VGT

Caterpillar/Ford V-6: 3.0L, 170hp/296lb-ft, HEUI(like the 6.0L) twin or single VGT's

Detroit Diesel V-6: 4.0L, 230hp/375lb-ft, 22mpg, HPCR twin or single VGT's

everyone and their dogs have diesels waiting in the wings
all this info should be fairly accurate as its from Diesel Power Magazine
:Thumbup: :woot: :sly:

Tom just below the injectors the ribbed are that looks like a valve cover from a sbc is the intake feed down into the head not from the side like the exhaust that came out on the 6.6

Which engine? the 4.5L Duramax? The 4.5L is still in production limbo.
