I believe Cummins will start production of a 2.8 and 3.8-litre diesel engines in 2008. To be used in SUV's and light trucks most likely in Dodge vehicles. Not sure of the specifics but you could run a search on some of the diesel forums and find out.
Sorry dog,it's a 7-3
I'd rather be Strokin' than cummin'
Nope its a Cummins Cummins 5.9 swaps into F250, F350, and Excursions are very popular mods. Here's a link to a recently completed Excursion 5.9 cummins swap.

I don't understand why guys need these huge trucks, other than to try to prove their masculinity, which I am cool with...as long as you aren't ruining the environment!!!!!!!! It just seems so pointless to me.
Well some reasons I can think of ...racing, sled pullin, Hotshoting...Personally my "huge" truck pulls a 15,000 pound gooseneck three horse trailer all over the midwest and does it at 16+mpg average. Empty she averages 22 and thats hand calculated. Seems to me my "huge" truck runs pretty good when you consider that its gas counterpart attempting to pull the same load will get anywhere between 4-8mpg average. So could you please explain to me how my "huge" truck is "ruining the environment"? Maybe its because "all" diesels smoke??? Wrong, Smoke = wasted fuel most diesel owners try and avoid that. Racers...thats a different story with the size turbos, injectors and increased pressure and timing its hard to avoid the smoke especially in the lower RPM's. Ask Gale Banks I'm sure he'll be happy to explain to you why he prefers a diesel that doesnt smoke while blasting past you doing 7.96 pass in a duramax diesel S-10.

Oh...did I mention that I'm running Biodiesel...so again How am I ruining the environment? I guess if you want to say i'm running around in my "huge" truck smelling like a McD's fry cooker then you got me there...but then again I guess its a pretty darn fast fry cooker at ~450HP and 865 torque.

After reading the title World's fastest Powerstroke I indeed made a poor assumption it was a 7-3.
I too pull a 3 horse goose neck.Loaded down,my pulldog gets 14mpg.Not too bad.

He might be a Ford guy, but at least he had sense enough to put a real diesel in his truck.
He must have found it along the road left for dead

That's a pretty novel roadway event -- rolling up next to or behind a biodiesel truck and having it smell so friggin good.

My lovable '91 Jeep is holding up well but at 130k miles the engine's a little long in the tooth. I'd love to do a diesel conversion rather than a rebuild when the time comes.

Wise or not, I become irrationally attached to vehicles and tools that've proven useful -- in my RC field box are a couple hand tools that are nearly 100 years old. I won't part with that Jeep unless it gets mashed to bits. It goes places other Jeeps won't, and I've no desire to add all that drivetrain stuff again.

For those who think diesel is dirty and gas is clean here's an interesting article.

So you got them while you were in college?

At work, I routinely burn 45-50,000 gallons of gas per day, I drive a V10 Dodge and my wife drives an evil SUV (Jeep), I'm putting together an airplane that will burn 50 gal/hour. If I'm willing to pay for the gas, that's my choice. Nobody needs an RC helicopter either. It just kills me when people think they have the right to tell other what type of vehicle to drive. If someone wants a big arse truck as a toy, so be it.

and that's the irony.......

Gimbal, my wife's great grandfather was a blacksmith and I was forunate enough to "inherit" his old tools. They really are a treasure.

Ain't that the truth.

I swap front seats from time to time to even out the wear, just like flipping over your mattress occasionally so the 'valley' doesn't develop on only one side.

Bart,

By believing what you read on youtube, you still made a poor assumption.

The PS and Cummins sound nothing alike. You can clearly tell its a Cummins by how the truck sounds while idling before he stages.

Haven't had my 1994 Dodge Ram 2500HD dynoed, but it ran 13.08 at just under 104mph on 33" tires.
He must have found it along the road left for dead
What, the F350? Yeah, you're probably right.

OK Eddie,here's a good 'ol Powerstroke whoopin' ass.
You could tell it's a Cummapart in the far lane,by the wheezing sound

Watch at YouTube

Well, that MUCH lighter white Ford is BARELY quicker than the Cummins powered 4 DOOR F350 featured in the first video....AND...the PS powered sled has a 4mph SLOWER trap speed indicating it's making LESS horsepower than the Cummins powered F350. But, nice try, though.

Ever see a PS crank and Cummins crank side-by-side? How about a connecting rod? The internals of a Cummins DWARF that of a PS. The difference in size is more like the difference between a diesel and a gas engine than the difference between two diesels! My tuner, Auto Wurks Diesel in NJ, showed me the difference when I had my truck tuned. He does performance work for BOTH engines. I was amazed at the difference between the two.

Besides, when is the last time you saw a PS in a Peterbuilt?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LMG...feature=related

7.31 at 189mph Cummins? You bet!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tw-0zhWUDEo
