    True comparing the early LLY engines (2004-early 2006) but the 06.5 LLY was MUCH closer to the LBZ than the old LB7.

    One thing to consider about the 6.0, it has a bad reputation which in turn really drove the price down. I've had mine for about 6 years now and no engine or transmission trouble. 165,000 I
    would and still kicking strong. If I was looking for. aa diesel truck

    Had a LB7, now LBZ, never pluged on of them! My LB7 did start, unpluged at -38c !!! ( it sound like a 50' tractor for a while, but started)
    Nevrr had to try my lbz in that cold, but just put new batteries in and -25 c no issue at all, not pluged.

    I do love my lbz, lot more power than my lb7 and 1 extra speed on the tranny.

    No comparison here. After a couple 6L tear downs and a 6.4L powerstroke tear down coming and our duramax being completely reliable with no repairs, I'd buy duramax all the way. Better torque down low, too.

    Never seen such a smooth, quiet, poweful engine.

    What year is your Duramax's?
