RE: Supercharged 7.3 gasohol F-250 4x4 towing 15K trailer etc

I will say that a 3.5EB should be more reliable than a supercharged 7.3. The 3.5 is designed to be a boosted engine with the correct compression ratio and it's pistons are similar to diesel engine pistons with steel liners casted in for the ring lands. The super charged 7.3 probably doesn't have ideal compression for boost and doesn't have steel ring lands in the pistons for long term durability.

RE: Build my TV

Upgrading from a 27'TT to a 41' 5er. Obviously now also need to trade in my TV for something more capable. Relying on the collective wisdom of this group for guidance. I do not have any strong brand loyalty beyond american made -- concerned about driving experience, ride comfort, towing capacity for the quoted trailer, and reliability. Make your proposals. Pretty well set on a diesel, but convince me if I am wrong. Trailer is 40' UVW 14344 lbs I agree with going with a diesel and if "American Made" is your requirement (It's my requirement as well) then GM and Ford is your excellent choices. Well FISH what about the life of the truck the 6.7 PS that's Made in Mexico??????? The OP wants an American made truck that means only Ford and GM fit's the bill and that's how I roll as well. Perhaps you can sing to the choir who will purchase a foreign built truck from a foreign company that's controlled in Europe that don't reflect our values like your Ram product.

RE: Build my TV

RAM HD's are "Assembled" in Mexico with mostly US Made components. Ford's Diesel is Made In Mexico. Guess you need to look into GM's total content. RAM HD's are "Made in Mexico" Unless FCA's own label on a Mexican made truck is incorrect. https://i.imgur.com/OMvEj4jl.jpg In addition I believe that FCA has or will merge with the French brand Peugeot.

RE: 2022 Ford Super Duty interior?

I don't know the answer to your question but based on the looks of the new F150's exterior and interior I'm going to wait for the new Super Duty release.

RE: Honda 2000i tips and tricks for changing oil.

Go solar. I haven't used my Honda 2000W gen since adding 400w of solar. YMMV Curious if you know what's the ROI on a Solar setup.

RE: GMC/Silverado 2500 Gas

If you look hard enough you will find it. https://i.imgur.com/ncDdLOWl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/G07fhHIl.jpg Found a 2021 Silverado Custom 2500HD and brought it home. Congrats on the new truck. I guy that works for me bought one same color but with a Z71 package and black rims a couple of weeks ago.

RE: V6 Silverados

x2. The Typhoon/Syclone engine was a turbocharged and specially built older generation 4.3. Ironically it was rated at 5 hp LESS than the new 4.3, just 280 hp. I think that it was drastically underrated as evidenced by its 0-60 and 1/4 times. 4.3 seconds 0-60 and a mid 13 second 1/4 in an almost 4000 lb vehicle takes a lot more than just 280 flywheel horsepower, probably at least 350 according to online calculators. True story. They were under rated. IDK why, but they were true sleepers. Another vehicle I wish I bought and mothballed along with a Grand National or 2! They were under rated because GM wouldn't let Buick have more advertised HP than the Corvette.

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

The low RPM massive torque while pulling with the Cummins is one of the things I noticed right away when I bought my truck over having 2 Ford PSD's. I need to hit a considerable hill while towing before having to downshift my truck out of 6th gear, and it is only on really tough pulls that I need to go down another gear from 5th. The other thing I've noticed is that the Cummins never sounds like it's working hard, even when pulling heavy. I'm quite sold on the inline 6! :B I noticed the same with my 6.7 PSD over my 6.0 PSD or even the lethargic 7.3. The 6.7 never feels like its stressed and pulling is a joy. I've been sold for +200k miles on the 6.7PSD. Bottom line todays diesels are a huge improvement compared to the diesels not too long ago with the exception of emissions equipment. The guys who are running the 2020 6.7 PSD say it's a huge improvement over the early 6.7.

RE: Throttle enhancement

It certainly is in the '18 duramax. My 20 does not have it. I've read that the '20 is not torque limited.

RE: Throttle enhancement

Very! Driving my wife's car is an excersize in patience. Pressing on the pedal to merge onto a highway is a problem, press the pedal and wait about 3 seconds then you'll get the kick down. The 14 Explorer naturally aspirated has about 300HP, ihowever it only feels like maybe 150! That's odd... My wifes '14 Edge Sport naturally aspirated has 305HP and feels ever bit of that and doesn't have any of the issues you describe on your '14 Explorer.

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

Here is a quote from the article that mentions 1356 rpm as where peak torque is developed: Ram and Cummins increased boost from the variable geometry turbocharger and upped the fuel delivery system’s flow rate. The changes for 2021 account for an additional 75 lb-ft. of torque versus a 2020 model. It’s worth noting the torque figure of 1,075 lb-ft. applies to the High Output version of the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel, which is only available for the Ram 3500 HD. If you opt for a Ram 2500, the truck will come with the standard output Cummins engine with 850 lb-ft. of torque. Another key difference is where the peak torque hits in the rpm band. The standard output Cummins provides peak torque at 1,700 rpm, while the High Output version will do so at 1,356 rpm. The journalist was talking to a Ram engineer to get his information and after thinking about this I have a theory of a misunderstanding taking place. I’m thinking the engineer may have been comparing the standard vs HO engines. The engineer may have been talking about the rpm where torque is created and said something like “standard output engine makes peak torque of 850 lbft at 1700 rpm. The HO does that at 1356 rpm”. So maybe he was meaning the HO produces 850 lbft at 1356 rpm. Until I know more I’m choosing to believe the new 2021 peak torque is 1075 lbft @ 1800 rpm. I too think 1800 rpm is more realistic. The older articles that still reference 420 hp quoted 1075 lb-ft @ 1800. 1356 rpm is also too precise to be meaningful - not 1355, not 1357, but exactly at 1356 our engine makes 1075 torque... Most torque and hp ratings go down to a granularity of 50 rpm, not single digit precision. I also doubt the torque makes a sharp downturn @ 1801 rpm, and make a linear drop to 2800, that's just not how engines naturally behave. If this engine can sustain 1000 lb-ft to around 2200 rpm, it'll make a very fat torque curve. The closest curve I can find is the B6.7 marine tuned to 419 hp: https://mart.cummins.com/imagelibrary/data/assetfiles/0055798.pdf This engine holds near constant 420hp from 2200 to 3000 rpm. I bet the truck engine is close, because there're only so many ways to make 1075 lb-ft @ 1800, and also make 430 hp @ 2800. I think this is going to be very close to what the torque curves of the Powerstroke vs 2021 HO Cummins will look like;https://i.imgur.com/Za7ZlkTl.png That torque curve on the Power Stroke looks very flat.

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

Your thinking the torque is 1075 lbft from 1356 to 1800 rpm, then drops to 807 lbft by the time the engine hits 2800 rpm .... maybe, I hope your right but I'm not convinced. I wish they would publish torque curves. Sounds about right. When Cummins went from the 650 Lb Ft to 800 Lb Ft in 2011. Both hit peak torque at 1600 and made the same peak 350 HP at 2800. The 650 torque curve remained flat until peak HP and the 800's torque gradually declined until it made the same peak HP at 2800 RPM. It's impossible to know exactly what the torque curve would look like when we are only given power or torque at two rpm points. If the article I read is right stating peak torque of 1075 lbft @ 1356 rpm, then we know that point. It is only possible that the torque remains at 1075 for as long as 2100 rpm. Beyond 2100 rpm the torque absolutely drops off but it could just as easily be dropping from 1400,1600,1800 ... who knows, we can only guess. If peak HP is 430 HP @ 2800 rpm then we know the torque at 2800 rpm is 807 lbft. As the engine rpm drops lower and lower form 2100 rpm the less relevant the torque value is as far as describing how the engine will pull a hill. It would be nice if Cummins would rate the engine as making peak torque of 1075 lbft from 1356 to 1600 or 1800 rpm ... or what ever it is. The big thing is useful power. The 650 and 800 Cummins had the same peak power at the same RPM but the 800 made 30 more HP at 1600 RPM which is a normal towing RPM and very useful. Here is a quote from the article that mentions 1356 rpm as where peak torque is developed: Ram and Cummins increased boost from the variable geometry turbocharger and upped the fuel delivery system’s flow rate. The changes for 2021 account for an additional 75 lb-ft. of torque versus a 2020 model.

The other attributes to consider is the HO has lower compression and relies on the variable vane turbo more than the standard engine that has higher compression.

RE: 2021 Cummins 1075 lbft peak torque at 1356 rpm

Torque charts are nice but just remember that's at full throttle and maximum boost while consuming maximum fuel. Not something you encounter when towing down the highway. For me what's more important is the torque the engine can make while towing and making the towing the easiest while making the best fuel economy. This is very difficult to quantify except for the fuel economy performance. In my mind the Power Stroke is the leader in this category for the 2020 models and I suspect will continue to lead for the 2021 models. It would be interesting to see brake specific fuel consumption maps for the different engines. I think the Powerstroke was the leader for best fuel consumption for the 2020 models which must be about the first time ever... I've never been very impressed with my 6.7 Powerstroke's fuel economy. Maybe the '21 will surprise me. I will be surprised if the changes to the Cummins have much of an effect on fuel economy. When the 6.7 PSD was introduced with DEF was better than the 6.7 Cummins that decided not to go with DEF for a couple of years. Then cummins caught up around 2013 but essentially was the same. I think the '15-'19 Cummins was slightly better.

Who really cares if one truck or the other tows up the Ike 12 seconds faster or slower than the other ones. All three are not your grandfather's truck anymore. Buy what turns your crank and enjoy it. I agree...
