    I'm not forgetting about it, what your talking about is a torque curve, which is whats important. What RPM your getting the power at. This is where gassers lose to diesels. You have to get very high RPM(for the motor) to get the HP/torque out of them, where as alot of the diesels have a flat torque curve, which means you get to the torque faster and longer. Of course every engine is different, but you get my point.

    Here is one for a stock 6.7L cummins:

    What I was trying to say, is that two stroke diesels have a near flat torque curve
    For that 12V71, at idle (450rpm) it outputs 745lb/ft torque and at full speed 2450rpm it will output 960lb/ft

    Your cummins, like any 4 stroke will have about half the torque at idle as the engine would at full speed

    Thats the difference

    who needs high power when you have that much torque. those engines sound awesome stock, i can only imagine what that one sounds like!
