Ken, all 3 are equipped with turbo chargers. It is not unreasonable to expect and get at least 150,000 to 200,000 miles on a turbo charge provided you take care of it and let it cool down prior to engine shut down especially after a hard pull. Usually a few minute or so is good. The Cummins is actually derated in Dodge truck to protect the transmission and power trains. A stock Cummins puts out 660 ft./lbs. of torque in the Cummins version of this engine which is used in MANY other trucks, Ford included. Cummins does not rate their hp numbers as high due to limiting their version of the B Series engine to 2,500 rpm vs 3250 rpm in the Dodge.

These are the current output #'s for the Dodge Cummins. An Edge EZ chip and a boost elbow or waste gate turnbuckle easily turn this engine up approx. 50 hp. and 150 ft./lbs.

Yeah, you usually see the commercial applications of many diesel motors with much higher torque numbers than the pickup version numbers. The commercial version HP is often lower thhough because it's not really as important and used more as marketing hype for the pickup market.

Thanks for the input guys. How about a manual transmission which I prefer. I suppose it's easier to break drive shafts and other parts of the drive train than with an automatic. Are the automatics rated higher for towing like my F150?

The automatics are gradully getting better and more able to handle the power and torque of these diesel engines but if you plan to do heavy towing; get the manual transmission. It is much stronger and you can use an exhaust brake. If you do light to moderate towing; you can get by with an automatic but you still will not be able to use an exhaust brake. You can but you risk damaging the transmission. Automatic transmissions can be upgraded (at considerable expense) to handle heavy towing and increased power output buy still do not work well with an exhaust brake.

Here is one of the more popular "black boxes or chips" you can install on a diesel that dramaticly increases power. They typically run around $650 and up.

Chief is right the edge box seems to be the one that all rave about. It really makes them trucks screamers. there,s a guy with the edge attudide box in a duramax running a 13.4 through the quarter,that is awsome,I traded in a 01 LS1 ram air firebird for my truck, And it's pretty neat knowing you can with a box run the same as it did and then hook on to the tractor and haul it around.I have put a 4inch exaust and afe intake on mine truck and will be gettin the edge soon.
