    Im not 100% i know it was an industrial engine (generators things like that) and with modification they can make upwards of 800lb-ft of torque and weigh something like 300lbs less than the 5.9L, but they are getting VERY hard to find, and as a result big $, and there are kits that are available to mate them to almost any tranny, and or truck etc. I did read about one that was in a chevy 3/4 ton 2wd with an allison that was running mid 11s at the track with slicks. However the trailers we are talking about with my buddies and their fords are just sled trailers, up to a 4place and a few 20ft enclosed, nothing super heavy. And a loaded out duramax would probably have run away from them. But they are still an awsome little motor i wanna do an S-10 4wd (ZR2) with a 6spd out of a 3/4ton for gas milage, and i would still be able to hook up to my boat and haul the mail. But that will be after i get the house, and the wife gets this and................ you get the idea...HAHA
