No duh? Did you read the second half? "You could squeeze at least 8 out of the 6"

He said you couldn't find a big diesel for under 30k if that is a diesel its well under 30k

----------

I'll dig later all I could find were 4bts.

I'd take any diesel over a 5.0 for a race truck.

Well..been awhile. But, the ecoboost 3.5 is nearly 12 grand...the 5.0 is 8....and take at least 2 grand in electronics to get running not to mention fabrication and tranny...so for 350-400hp, its worthless...and the diesel idea isnt bad....150,000 on one is good, the blocks seasoned...theyre meant to be beat on....i have two, a obs 7.3 ps and a lb7 duramax....i would honestly spend the same money for a 4bt and gear it out for about 85...300hp and enough torque in a light truck that could embarass most vettes, non shelby mustangs and definately most dodges

Its really not an apples to apples thing I love the powerstroke just beause theres a lot less electronics...its a 95 whereas my wifes truck is a 03....im sorta cheap so when the 3 inch or whatever downpipe was installed and the cold air intake for 400 bucks as opposed to 700 for the dmax...its no compare

----------

And i wont even look at a new diesel....your 100 dollar oil change turns into a 500 dollar change because of the def fluids and all that crap...plus theres nothing my 4k 1 ton and my wifes 25k 3/4 ton cant do that the new ones can...other than stroking someones ego because they have a truck worth more than their house

Hey the new ones can do a lot of things the old ones can't.

Cause a divorce, cause bankruptcy, cause ulcers, make people laugh when someone wrecks it, etc...

I really don't know why they market the 30k tow rating... more like a small dick compensator honestly... if someone hauls close to 30k then they probably have a truck rated higher than that. No one really just tosses 15 tons on a pickup one day.

Its not legal to tow above 26k gross without a dot license...so its just someone saying fuck it...why not....because honestly for awhile i really thought about a newer cummins....but now you can pick up older 94.5-98 obs powerstrokes for 4k...and mine came with a bw gooseneck, 4 inch exhaust and a trailer brake.....i just paid for a full fluid change and drive the truck and pull anything...her truck really only gets used because its 4wd...ill say this much though i miss my ranger haha

I just don't know what I'd haul... then again I'm an auto body technician not a farmer.
