Are you the same faggot that did the other thread about Land Rover? These are only good on paper, they're moneypits IRL. The super attendant at a building up the street fixed Land Rovers, had 3 at one point because Land Rover autism like you. Sold them all for a Ford Explorer, as he was constantly fixing them with the highest one being 43k on the clock.

I agree. I would have posted the 6.7 Powerstroke because desu those have proven to be overall a better motor than the 7.3, but the fuel system of the 6.7 can be problematic if you live in a place were high quality fuel is scarce.

My list from the under developed world big hitters:

Volkswagen AP: in production for like 40 years, bulletproof from brazilian's hate of basic maintenance.

Renault's Cleon and Energy series: sturdy and easy rebuild because of the removable water cooled sleeves. Old Renaults are still highly valuated used cars because of this.

PSA XD2 diesel engines: Argentina's and Africa's favourite taxi workhorse with the 504. It could easily make half a million kilometers before a rebuild.

Fiat 128 engine family: In production for like 40 years, since 1969 until the last 1.9 Fiat Lineas. Takes mods like an alcoholic takes cheap tequila.

GM Family I and II engines: Still in production because of their high reliability and low rpm torque. A bit thirsty tou.

Ye olden 2GR-FE from Toyota. This thing was made to put in a Lotus Evora with a yamaha built head and a supercharger, if you just ride it around in the Camry that they come in, they will last as long as you change the oil in them. Kilmer had it right when he recommended the '11 Camry as the best car. It really is the car of the blue collar working man that doesn't want any frills.

The low compression Honda K24A1/K24A4 form the very early 2000s is indestructable as fuck, even the high compression TSX motor can go over half million miles, but the Accord/Element motors with that thin ass 5W-20 oil just refuse to die, the rest of the car will fall apart around the drivetrain, which makes people get rid of them even though they run.

The 6BT has an iron cylinder block, as well as an iron cylinder head. While this makes it extremely heavy, it also makes it extremely strong. Strength is one of the 6BT’s most known features. Many people have pushed them past 1,400 horsepower, and the stock ones can exceed 1,000,000 miles (!) if properly cared for.

Yes and no.

Both are medium duties, the Cummins is just indisputably better for towing. The 7.3 is a bus motor that’s worried about acceleration first. While the Cummins is tractor, excavator tier, a bit heavier duty(and physically heavier as well)

That's actually not bad, Honda makes a killing with it's service department, I take my 2000s Accord into the dealership along with other people still driving their 2004 piece of shit for trans drain and fills or when i need some random genuine shit part I bought from a dealer installed for me so they get labor on that, and mercedes would make a killing too if they sold W123 tier cars and parts to keep them going, repairing and restoring W123 and W126 benzes is a business in itself, because old Mercedes will run forever, but it costs thousands of dollars of suspension work and other shit to do this, people buy known reliable cars like Hondas expecting to run up 300,000 miles without doing a thing to it, and then they're mechanic tells them they need struts and bushings, and the car needs $2000 of suspension work, oh yeah and it's leaking from everywhere.

Everything is shit and breaks, but at least in an old Mercedes or old Honda, you're spending thousands of dollars that you can at least depend on.

>>
>>24609194
4.9 liters is pretty far from "fuckhuge" by American standards. That's not a lot of displacement when you're moving a big, heavy truck with it. An engine that needs to run reliably at those kind of loads needs to be pretty de-tuned and low strung. It's why the Cummins 6.7 in a box truck makes 200hp but in a pickup it makes almost 400hp. It's also got a camshaft designed for more low end torque and HP.
