Thatís what mine is. 06 LLY is an LBZ hence my joke. Still can break the crank at any time. Still has crap pistons that crack worse than any LLY could. Head baskets can still go...

Iím pretty sure they all blow up the same, 01, 06, 08 it donít matter, and they donít run that great stock, they donít even run that good tuned. I do like how parts are cheaper for the 01-07 and you donít have to jack up the cab to pull the motor.

They Run great in stock form and they run even better tuned ď as long as itís done rightĒ not uncommon for me to see stock Duramaxes achieving 400 to 700,000 miles

Anything under 600 horse is underpowered to me and I don’t have the money to throw away for that anymore, and tuning has a play but it’s how you treat them and luck of the draw, my LLY owed me nothing but the LMM 100k and never towed anything and let loose...really?
