Are the newer trucks still have active fuel management
If you're talking about the MDS (multi-displacement system) I think they do. However, I don't think the 5.7L is available in 2500/3500 anymore.
Kinda forgot about that, that sure wouldn't help the crappy gear ratio in mine.
OK thanks its a crappy system
Is that why they don't have any balz?
My buddy has one.
Wondered why my 14 year old 6.0 chebbie wirh 230K miles could out pull his POS.
Not sure, ours will pull great, just doesn't have the low end torque I am used to. And when towing or if the plows are on, it is constantly hunting gears. Could be crappy gear ratio or because it's operating as a V6 or both.
I am in the market for another truck, actually looked at a few that had 6.4s and ended up not even considering them.
I dont like active fuel management But I like their diesels way better
I said pulling, not towing.
Noticed the difference when we had to move a dumpster, twice. Once i pulled it with the chebbie. A different time, he did with his ram. The ram didn't seem to have the torque it took to get it to move at low rpms. I would have expected more from the Cummins.
When he moved it with the Cummins, i said how gutless it seemed. There happened to be a concrete truck driver there who said he's got a chebbie and a Cummins. He said the Cummins is a dog when stock. Not sure what modifications he was referring to.
No power issues with mine.
Well it doesn't breathe well tune delete straight pipe and cold air induction is a start
Didn't you buy a chebbie with a 6.0 last year?
How does it compare?
how do these topics get hijacked and then to crap
This is literally the most on topic discussion I've read on here today
I have 2 6.4 trucks, both with 4.10 rears. Go that route. One runs a 2.5 yard salter plus a 8.5' HD2 with 6 speed auto. Other a 9.5' XV2 plus blower and usually 500 LBS of bag salt and 8 speed auto. Both pull great. I do notice with the 2019 [8 speed] it does hunt a bit with the mds when driving light. That hasn't happened with it loaded up. Love the hemi's.
6.7 cummins is no 5.9 HO but at least I have the warranty-got the 4.10's in that too. No point in going with the 3.73's.
