calm down, the fuel is the exact same as you have been using. low sulpher diesel is what your motor has run since the day you bought it.......

the stickers are a warning too guys who buy most 07 modle trucks. within the next few months they will be phasing in Ultra low sulpher diesel, which is what the brand new motors coming out are built to run on. they will phase in the new diesel and phase out the old type at the same time. the new diesel will have additives in it to make it compatable with your motor without hurting thiers. the stickers are just there to warn anyone who may end up with an 07 motor early that they shouldnt use that fuel. right now, that fuel isnt available anywere that i know of, but neither are the trucks. the 07 6.0 will run on standard low sulpher diesel, but the 6.4 which wont be launched till january, has to run on Ultra low sulpher. its just a precaution till the fuel is all phased in........Marc

lol......i doubt it if your dumping enough fuel in, but honestly i dont know for sure......they are looking at emmisions of a normal running rug, not one dumping excess fuel in.....so i would think you will be able to blow smoke just fine........Marc

common sense says any time you "rod" a motor, you take a small amount of life out of it. those parts by themselves wont cause a problem, its all in how you drive it and take care of it. i would say that running it hard with them will insignificantly affect it, but nothing that you should probably worrie about as long as its well taken care of......Marc

so the 07 6.0s that are currently out have not been hurt with power issues like Dodge did with the 5.9 cummins so they changed to the 6.7L ?

Any negatives with buying an 07 model that ISNT an ultra low sulfer? Id rather not buy the first years motor/truck etc, but then again i guess no one knows much about it yet.

The duramax trucks are beats, if i wasnt towing with the new truck 90% of the time i would only consider the 650lb tq duramax, allison combo.
