    Nope the Duramax in Chevy's trucks is a 6.6L V8:D There was a V6 in development to put in Suburbans and light duty pickups i.e 1/2 tons but I am not sure what happened with that.

    There is a 6 cylinder "Duramax", in the medium duty trucks.

    The cummins is going down this year, there is a dmax making 1000 hp with lots more left with tuning, on fuel alone without even any water/meth, and it is street driven. It is easier and cheaper to make more power with a dmax than the cummins, the cummins was been king for a long time but the dmax will take the crown this year, there will be a few in the 1000-1200hp range:D

    The B series Cummins is an inline 6.

    The Dmax and Power Strokes are all V8's.

    Eh, don't get too excited yet. While the Dmax has become a serious contender giving many Dodges a run for their money, it's not top dog yet, and I doubt it will be.

    A Dmax top end is stronger than a Cummins top end, but a Cummins bottom end is stronger than a Dmax bottom end.

    The Dmax's are having problems with rods and mains in big HP applications, once you 0-ring a Cummins head it's ready to rock and roll for 800-900HP.

    As far as the dyno run that took place a couple of months back.... there has been dozens apon dozens of Cummins Dodges that have broke the 1000HP barrier for a couple of years now.

    Out of the box with a simple adjustable box, the Dmax is better than the Cummins, but not by much. stick a set of studs and a real turbo in the Dodge and it takes a Dmax on drugs to compete if it isn't running 1700* on the pyro.

    I doubt dozens upon dozens of cummins have made 1000hp on straight #2, they do make good power but they have been in dodge trucks for 18 years, and in production for how long? the dmax is only 6 years old and is already showing great potential. There are a few pulling trucks, both dmax's and cummins that are obviously making huge power but will probably never see a dyno since their owners dont care for hp #'s. 1004/1958 on straight #2 on the stock block/crank, it will be a good year for the dmax, too bad mines gotta stay stock for a while, too many other toys to spend $ on.

    Gale Banks is a dumb dumb..... He is not much for respected in the hot rod diesel hobby.

    Yes, 700/1400 is nice, but not special. The Cummins, Dmax, and even the 7.3 all can do those numbers for you on stock internals, thats a modern deisel for you. Thats like saying someone has a 500HP small block Chevy. Sure, it's a lot of power but it's not special. It's just a really hopped up motor.


    The Dmax is showing good potential, but that 1000HP Dmax didn't have stock internals....;)

    I can honestly say I don't think either engine really has anything on the other.

    I looked into both options, a cummins, and a duramax for a newer truck purchase. I also looked into upgrades. From my perspective the cummins seemed WAY cheaper and easier to mod. The parts are everywhere for a cummins, and it doesn't seem there is a ton of stuff out there for the dmax. I guess it just depends what you want to do and what you are into. For me, a cummins would be my next purchase. It just seems more affordable, plus I have a buddy who races his cummins so finding parts and tech wouldn't be a problem. His truck currently runs a 10.8 quarter mile with no drugs.

    The Dmax is a little better in stock form than the Cummins.

    Their turbo's seem to do a little better than the Cummins and can handle a little bit more fuel, plus with the Allison they say just a Trans-Go shift kit goes a long way. With the Dodge autos you have to do both a valve body and a different converter.

    Other than that neither really has much on the other, but they both have a ton on the Fords.:p:

    The Duramax in the medium duty GMCs are still a V8....only slightly larger displacement IIRC.

    A guy at my work had one of the new Duramax's with the Allison trans, i guess i didn't look hard enough at it, thought it was a v-6, but upon further invetsigation, it was a v-8.

    The major thing i liked about the truck he had, was the fact as it was running, i walked by it, and almost didn't know it WAS running,,,just a slight hint of that Diesel sound. I thought this was awsome that they could quiet down a Diesel engine, and still produce some interesting numbers, with more to add with mods.

    Eh, all the very new diesels with multi injection sound like crap. A diesel is supposed to sound like a diesel when you fire it up!
