The EB engine is strong, quiet, fuel efficient.

Don't know the long range outlook on the Turbo 3.5 EB.
BUT...
I bet my money on one and I'm satisfied.

Turbo motors have been around for a while. I love em.
My last truck was a 2008 PSD and I never had a minute of trouble out of the turbos. Hope my EB is as good.

Its a very nice engine an impressive amount of hp/torque in a 3.5L engine.

Good enough for drag racing and truck pulls. Nuff said
