DU­RA­MAX

Hot Rod - - Hot Rod’s Diesel -

Gen­eral Mo­tors’ Du­ra­max line of tur­bod­iesel V8s were a mas­sive step up over the gut­less Detroit Diesels sold from 1982–2000. De­signed from the ground up for the light-duty mar­ket in part­ner­ship with Isuzu, the Du­ra­max shaved weight com­pared to its com­pe­ti­tion and be­came a fa­vorite for its ro­bust power. Early ver­sions were known for in­jec­tor is­sues, but once di­aled-in, the Du­ra­max be­came a pop­u­lar can­di­date in swaps thanks to its (rel­a­tively) car-friendly pack­ag­ing com­pared to the trac­tor­ready Cum­mins.
