I'm with you there Steve. The last diesel engines I owned were nearly 30 years old. I had to ask Google about DEF last week, after seeing references to it here.

Really? <br />
Lies, who comes up with the bull? My stock 2008 Dodge car gas engine puts out 600 hp and 560 FtTq. My 2005 Dodge truck gas engine stock is 500 hp, 525 tq.<br />
<br />
The 2015 NS Dodge gas engines put out 645 hp and 600 tq. They also have gas v8 engines that stock have 707 hp.
Do your high HP/torque gas motors make there most power down low in the RPM range? I can't those motors lasting long in a motorhome.

Navistar divested itself from Workhorse and no longer builds gas rv chassis. Workhorse builds delivery trucks for UPS and such and have announced their re-entry into the RV market. This is where the 8.8 engine will likely find a home. Now, if they can only get a reliable set of brakes.

Did you miss this part? "specifically designed and engineered as an RV engine which is intended to compete with costly diesel powered motorhomes." Unless the car or pickup truck engine is installed in an RV or a large school bus fleet such as the PSI 8.8L engine, your comparison may not be sustainable. Features such as 6 bolt mains make a difference in reliability and vocation.

BIB block gasoline engines do not necessarily need to produce big torque at low rpms however they do come up to a heafty grunt pretty quickly.

You are most likely correct.
