    Well, the Colorado/Canyon diesel is a VM design. I would assume that would be the logic.

    I still thouroughly enjoy and am interested in reading about the new trucks, but the complexity, emissions, cost, and reliability of them is just too much for me to stomach. Im pretty sure whenever im done with the ecodiesel im going back in time to something much simpler.

    I completely agree, vehicles need to be simpler. They basically need a reboot. They're like windows xp that hasn't been reinstalled in 5 years. Enter Tesla. While the software is complex, the overall mechanism isn't. Just a battery and some motors. I got a chance to ride in one and I'm a believer. If only you could swap out batteries at fueling stations, I'd get one.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a 4bt or a cummins 2.8 in my grandpa's old '89 chevy with a blown 350

    Depending on how long the ecodiesel lasts for me it will probably be my sons first truck.

    Well, that all depends on how big of a repair you're willing to do. My reluctor ring came apart at 158k miles, needed while tranny to be dropped. Dpf guaranteed to fail, will cost $1k to replace, tranny is likely to have issues eventually. Then I imagine all sorts of sensorswill start failing, like airbag sensors, engine sensors, etc. How old is your son now? Lol

    Well that Chevy 3.0L diesel shows up with a BELT to turn the oil pump. Then the design engineer talks of a 150,000 mile targeted engine life. "Mr. Truck" talks to him about the Cummins and a 300,000 mile design life. He laughs. Not a very pleasant exchange of information to me.

    Then I see this one-piece DPF/DEF device up high attached to the engine. Good if it works. Looks complicated. Just like the EGR system. Both systems seem to be so compact and integral that they might be difficult to turn off or delete.

    After further observation I like what I see if it works. No glue-on injection timing ring to come apart. At least that is a positive along with the operational torque and rpm characteristics. This engine bears more study.
