The funny thing is that about 6 different individuals are working on common rail kits for the T444E. What are these people going to do? Put the PS motors back in when it's over?

As it is now strokes are turning in the low 11's with streetable 4wd's and with the mass fuel flow setbacks of hydraulic injectors. With common rail fuel it will be just a BIG V8 against a smaller inline 6 with equal fueling.

I've built many Cummins 855's and I like the Cummins motors but the overconfidence of many Cummins owners will be funny to watch in the end.

I agree... just from reading some of the comments, it's obvious to me that registering and replying over there would be a waste of time. The people there, for whatever reason, are fiercely Toyota loyal, and will not listen to facts. They will however respond to those facts with bashing and hatred.

Funny... that kind of thing doesn't happen here, guess we get spoiled and think that every forum will be as friendly and open minded as this one.

Bumpin, did you read what "diesel freak" wrote in his post... You don't need reinforcement to argue with a person that ignorant.

"Cummins is a sleve'd motor with commonrail injection and is **** near bulletproof."


Only the BIG Cummins have sleeves and certainly not the 5.9 or any of the PU class motors..

I wana know how you fit a big heavy diesel in a motor compartment that normaly houses a 2.2 litre engine that weighs about 100 lbs? and you can tell most of them had no idea what they where even talking about because a 4 cyl cummins would fit way easier be half as heavy as the 5.9 and would still have twice the power and 4 times the torque as the factory yota gas motor... not to mention less fuel consumption and now lets talk about what kind of drive train mods you would have to do to a yota to handle the torque of any diesel engine big or small LOL
