How can you tell the difference between Turbo Diesel and HO Turbo Diesel?
Would the VIN have different number?
Before I have heard 2 distinctive engine sounds coming from Dodge Rams.
One type is the regular clanky noise same as you would hear in either Ford
or Chevy. The other is like you would hear in a big rig such as Freightliner
or similar big rig.
Anyone can tell why the same engine would have such different sounds?
Knowing the year you're talking about would help... for the 2nd gen Rams
('98-'02), 6=SO, 7=HO, in the 8th position of the VIN. For 3rd gen trucks
('03+), 6=SO, C=HO
Exhaust modifications, for one.
Secondly, the 12V and 24V engines (used in '89 thru '02 trucks) were much
louder than the current common-rail engines, due mainly to the new engine's
use of pilot injection.
About the sounds you would like to know about on the cummins ??? The
TURBO has a ring that you take out to get the loud Whistle noise you
are looking for like the Big Trucks .......... If I can be of more
help get back to me
