The 6.7 is a standard push rod actuated 4 valve per cylinder engine.

Well I did research on Urea injection. You know it will not let you start the truck if the urea tank is empty and you completely ignore all the warnings. Urea is going to be like 7 dollars a gallon. The road tractors are going to have a 20 gallon urea tank so im guessing the 6.7 will be 10 or less. It will still use a DPF and the urea injection. Removes 90 percent of Noxs. Some mercedes vehicles already have urea injection and have had for some time. Urea is corrosive. I still havent seen anything about whether you can pee in the tank and replenish the urea.

I was just reading about Chevys new diesel with urea injection. The have a 9th injector behind the engine firing into the exhaust. No more in cyclinder dosing apparentley. They claim that the truck will warn you when you have less than 1000 miles of urea.

I dont know what the price of urea will be but I keep seeing $1.50 a gallon.

I can only assume the Scorpion 6.7 will use similar emission tech. Sounds promising.

I was reading this thread last night and found it very interesting. He mentioned a single turbo. Hope I am not breaking rules linking this.

He would know. Matt at Spartan has been behind the wheel of one already (God knows how) and has nothing but great things to say about them. Single turbo is what the 6.7 will have.

When you "refine" what you have, is you end up with the last incarnation of the 4.9/5.0/5.8 and 460 engines. Fairly large engines, putting out crap for power for just how large their displacement is, and getting crap efficiency at the same time.

You can't just keep rehasing the same old engine over and over with just a few improvements. Look at chevy, they are expected to replace their LSx based engines next year! That engine design only doubted in 1998!

Exactly! If we don't complain they will continue to kill (reliability, cost effective nature, power) of the diesel engine with emissions BS. There is no reason for all the aftertreatment of exhaust where 99% of these trucks operate. The 1% that operate in air inversion cities can have all the BS they can put on them!

Maybe we should consider air purifiers near the wildfires, if soot is so bad!

The planet is getting hotter and the Ice caps are melting. Someone had to start doing something.
