With any kind of boost vs non boost, or any kind of product for that matter.

More complicated = more sh!t to go wrong I like the idea but I'd wait a few years for Ford to work out the issues if I were to buy.

If Ford stopped selling the 5.0 I think they'd lose market share as there are alot of people that would not buy the V6 or the big block. Plus with the new EPA rules manufactures are required to hit avg mpg over all their lines.

Oh, and, good kill :P

Reread it again. It's not hard to believe at all. The cummins pulls to a little over 3k, then is rpm limited by the software. The hemi is limited at about 5600 rpm. Between the 3k or so the cummins pulls hard to and the 5600 the hemi pulls to, the hemi makes more torque (and power).

Now, what does this actually MEAN in real life? Pretty much nothing-it's a given that one engine will make more torque than another at high rpm if the other engine is rpm limited. That's why the transmission in the cummins truck will shift, then the diesel will proceed to make more torque than the hemi again. But yes, his statement is absolutely correct.

Not trying to be a jerk but your sentences are hard to follow, I'm not sure of what you are trying to say in some of your post. I did reread it though and I see he said the hemi produces more torque above 3,100 rpm (where the cummins doesn't operate), and yes that is correct, I must have just read the first part of the sentence originally. My point was that the CTD makes more torque at any rpm (that it operates at) than the hemi.

I'm failing to see how anything I posted is hard to follow. Maybe I used some weird terminology, or phrased something oddly, I dunno. I have to admit, I've been posting on the internet for slightly over 10 years and you're perhaps the first to tell me that what I posted is hard to follow. Heck if I know...

Could you clarify? You've tweaked my curiosity.

LOL someone must of slipped something in my drink last night, it makes sense now

Brad he is saying that since the cummins red lines at about 3000 rpms, the hemi makes more torque from 3000 rpms and above until the hemi's redline, as the cummins doesn't make any torque at those rpm's (since it doesn't spin that fast). But for some reason his sentences don't make any sense last night
