Whats else do you have and best Diesel Engine

LETS KEEP IT FRIENDLY

So what Diesel engine is the best on the market? Today, Yesterday, Tommorow?

My vote is...
1) 94-98 PSD
2) 98-02 Cummins
3) 08-10 Duramax
Future) 2015 PSD

Notice all are American and Diesel

95 xcab longbed xlt, org owner, 170k, tyvek, 285/75 bfg, 3"dp exh, cat delete. All else stock.

I've had a 94 PSD, currently have a 97 Cali PSD, and I've towed with my Father-In-Law's 2011 Dodge 3500 with the Cummins. Hate to say it, but my PSDs can't even come close to that thing. Smooth, quiet and pulled the 9k fifthwheel like it wasn't there almost. Cheers!

I have to agree, with each new generation of diesel they get stronger regardless of manufacture. However. I believe the OBS PSD has the fewest issues ie.. reliable. My wifes 01 cummins has much more tork than my 95 psd but I also have to deal with VP44 (fuel pump) issues that account to big $$$.

I keep getting these obs psd 7.3L, I love them, IMHO best bang for your buck and such a nice trucks around it, but I really like my dads 6.4, I would say it's a bit better but being as how my dually cost $1400, and his truck was $30k I think I will keep my old reliable rattle trap
