Ranting and Raving......

As i was perusing through some back issues of diesel power, i began to realize a trend. The trend was that the duramax and cummins seem to be the only ones putting down some serious power. Why is that? is the design of the powerstroke not able to put that much powert to the ground? I mean there are guys like madsen who put a cummins in his f350, and guys with old 12 valve cummins that put a modded 6.0 to shame. Guys getting crazy numbers with a relatively old engine design. So this got me thinking. Is this merely because ford and Int. are pushing lame designs, or is the aftermarket just not coming up with crazy stuff like they do for the dmax and cummins? I don't have the answer, and was hoping that i could get various opinions on the subject. It's kind of a shame that i've been to truck shows here local and the dodge guys are all willing to talk about their trucks, most of the ford guys (obviously not .org members mind you) are tight lipped. Is that why powerstrokes are not putting the holy grail 1000 hp toi the ground? I knoiw trhe dmax can maker some real power, and the cummins can, but where's the PSD? hopefully i just haven't seen them yet......

THe PSD's can put down the power...but they break quickly at over 600hp or so. The bedplate and the injectors are the reasons. They just aren't conducive to big power numbers.
