Thats what KT Cummins motors are for...... 1,150 cubic inches, 19 liters for you folks in europe...... Nice job Joe, after reading your disclaimer and consulting with my legal team, I officially have to say, um, good lookin trucks dude! lol, on a more serious note, was was in the Western Star, that sure is a load, he run out of gears?

Probably running 425 in front of a 13spd with high way rears. I have no doubt that my lil 475Hp Heavy haul could have pulled the load up the hill at half the speed of smell in Low/Low might even pull it in 1st! with 52,000Lb 4.10 .

There would be a pound of clutch dust on the ground if I had to stop on that hill though. I have always hated 2spd rears so no deep reduction on my truck.

And the really big power house Cummins motors were the factory KTTA Cummins motors Twin turbo charged Aftercooled Cummins KT motors. Factory rated to 600HP.
