Eric you said that new Nissan Cummins was garbage right? That makes me so sad.

Yes. Wait a few years to buy one until we get the bugs worked out. Just blew one up this week, thats why I was in phoenix. To be fair, it was towing 20% over rated towing capacity and its hot as shit down here. Bet the oil degraded too much and it ate the bearings. Waiting to hear back from teardown

It's awesome. They built that block to be able to integrate a chassis to so it's built right. Get rid of the BS (aftertreatment, EGR, etc) and it will run forever. New common rail stuff makes sure cams don't wear out and the fuel pumps are bulletproof even with the high bio-diesel, low sulfur garbage we have now.

Thank you sir

Even bone stock im loving it, averaging 22 highway on the way home from the dealer (uphill) made my jaw drop, can only imagine how it is broken in and tuned with deletes.

From what ive gathered the transmission is the weak link

Ive got the base auto, not the asin. Detuned to 800ftlbs iirc

Made an offer on a 1ton with asin. But they didnt take it. Would have ended up 9k+ over what i paid. Wasnt worth it for my needs, im only pulling realiatically a 9,000lb brick, nothing major. As it is the truck pulls it like a champ.

Aisins are nice, same ones the new Titans are getting. They were supposed to be getting a WAY nicer ZF 8 speed but Nissan didn't want to pay for it. IMO, the Aisin can hold power but shifts like shit, ZFs shift like butter.
From what i've read the 68rfe i have holds about as much power as matt.
