WELL... The Duramax Diesel exists due in great part

to Isuzus involvement. It's one of ther best

turbo-diesels ever made, Gm has a history of

prolematic diesel motors so they made sure to get it

100% perfect this time around. Another Olds350

diesel disaster would have really hurt GMs rep.

Correct

"It's one of ther best

Actually, if I remember right the 6.0L Powersmoke is built in-house by Ford (and its having problems, and going to be replaced once again by an International-built 6.4L). Cummins is doing a good job with their diesels along with the Izusu-based Duramax.
