Oh I see, this is what led me astray:

a light duty Ram 1500 with a 3.0-liter V6 rated at 240 hp and 420 lb-ft.

Looking at this again, I see it must be that Italian made v6 they are talking about.

Its interesting that in the past they moved from the 903 V8 to the 855 inline 6. Even today with motors like their QSX16, 3 X the size of this new one & still only 6 cylinders. I guess for consumer products things are different.

I'm happy for Cummins success with the 6BT and where it has led them. That said, it just doesn't seem like a Cummins without six cylinders, three cylinder heads, wet sleeves and an exhaust manifold that cracks. Those were sweet old engines.

Even though I've had it for 15 years, every time I light off the 6BT in my Dodge, I still get a smile on my face.

Looks like a pretty simple and efficient design (not to take away from the engineering that went into it though), wonder how much of that will be covered in wires by the time it gets under the hood?

this looks like a plant id love to have in a classic G30 van.

Too bad its being wasted on a titan. Not a fan of those trucks. Way too bloated.

How log before the owners are cleaning out the sludge in the intake manifold from the EGR? Or paying 2g's to have someone else do it.

Never on my Cummins.
