Same as a Cummins

I read this on another forum today and thought I would come over here and see what you thought.

The new scorpian is going to be the cummins with a different name. Same motor that dodge currently uses. Somebody correct me if Im wrong?

Yup, completely different motors with the same displacement. It is kind of like saying that the Chrysler, Chevy and the Toyota 5.7L V8s are all the same motor, with just a different sticker on the top

Welcome to FTE Crete You have found the best Ford forums on the net with correct information. Scorpion is V-8, reverse flow with a new transmission hung behind it. The Torq-Shift has been great but this new transmission will be worth waiting for.

Dodge? didn't they go bankrupt or something......

Thanks for the welcome!

Got to ask though, what is reverse flow?

If the new tranny is better than the Torq-shift, it must really be something......
