325@3300 rpm and 560@2000 rpm are flywheel numbers. Account for a 15-25% parasitic drivetrain loss at the rear wheels.
One of the good 6.0L's. 105,000 miles on it and no major problems in its history. I take great care of it and spare no expense on maintence.
Its a work truck and does have its fair share of scratches, dings, and chips. I want to repaint it black. It has a Delta Pro diamond plate tool box.
Doesnt have much done to it yet, because I dont have the money to spare for parts for it. I do try to do all the work I can myself, but am limited by my wrenching skill.

Wish list: 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 Laramie Dually 6.7L Cummins 6-speed manual. Any Dodge Cummins really. The new 2011 Ford Super Duty has my attention also.
Some kind of biodiesel home production kit. Probably from Utah Biodiesel supply. They have a great youtube page for info and research.
By the way, I dont hold any bias on truck or engine brand. Brand loyalty is cool, but being an *** wont get you anywhere and the factory doesnt give you free stuff for trashing other brands for the sole fact you dont own them.
Ford, GM, and Dodge all make an excellent truck and their engines are all great.Some better than others. They all have their little problems and quirks. What it really takes is good quality ownership, care, maintence, and understanding of engine operation and design. Building a balanced engine is key to reliablility and sustainded power IMHO. I would rather have a 200hp engine that will last a million miles than a 1000hp engine that would be lucky to see a few months of drag racing or dyno pulls, much less a years worth of driving.
