Somethings to ponder.....

I was reading in the October 09 issue of Diesel Power about the new 6.7.
I have a few questions i thought I would bring here for discussion....

The first involves a section on 'Noise'
"...the engineers toggled the pilot injection on and off. With the system off, the 6.7L sounded like the first '94.5 7.3L Power Stroke, but with the injection turned on, it seemed much quieter than the current D-Max or Cummins."
How long, if at all, do you think it will take for us to be able to toggel this via a tuner? I really hope we can
Second, Fuel Economy:
"No figures were quoted, but we were told the new 6.7 will offer a substantial fuel economy increase over the 6.4L. The smaller DPF on the 6.7 would indicate the new engine will use less fuel-economy killing active regeneration"
My question is, I know they will have the UREA but wouldn't a smaller DPF build up soot faster, thereby increasing the times it will regen? Or is the UREA that good of a thing??

I hope you can turn the pilot injection off because I want it to be loud

Not sure if the manufacturers do this south of the 49th but up here the build sheets on the windows of new diesels do not show any mileage numbers like they do on the gassers . I was surprised they even mentioned it in the videos. I guess we will have to wait & see.
I don't know anything about the urea. I work at a place that has it's own cardlock/bulk fuel and was talking to the manager. He has heard of it but says that our new 72 pump cardlock has no plans for urea filling but then again I don't know diddly about it. All the polution cra.. enhancements are not as much of an issue up here, they don't make us do smog tests. Kinda happy about that cause the first thing I did to my rig was get rid of the stock exhaust.
I do like that truck though, yup I do.

Down simply because a new generation of trucks is being introduced.
Nothing to do with the engines value going down, because diesels usually hold their value quite well.
But many people look past the engine and consider other features, which affects values.
