    On paper the new 6.6 gas doesn't look bad. Im more interested in real world performance and reliability. I guess time will tell. But its a little disappointing with all the added DI and upgraded compression that it still doesnt make peak tq till 4k rpm. Seems with all that it could of made peak tq at 3500rpm.

    Looks like GM is going to have a more complicated higher strung engine that makes less power than Ford's fairly simple 7.3L

    Thats exactly what i was thinking. And if in the future ford decides to add direct injection thats gonna make the gap is bigger.
