Ok guys I just saw a comercial for the new Dodge and the add stated that they have 600 ft. lbs. of torque. The only place I can find torque listed for the Duramax is in the sales brochure and it says 520 for the (LB7). No mention for the LLY. Any help
Where can I get the torque in high gear specs in writing? According to the dealer I bought new truck from today this info is incorrect. I will be upset if my new truck does not make advertised power in high gear.
I've done a little searching on the power restriction thing in two gears with the LLY. I can't seem to find it right now, but it seems to me I've seen that somewhere. I think that's part of the reason you'll see the new Allison line up with higher HP and torque numbers they've announced. Unless you're drag racing, there's not much need for max power in first, and fifth is the weakest gear on the Allison.
Even Edge posts numbers showing the max torque the Allison can take is substantially lower in fifth than the other gears. IIRC, it's something like 25% less in fifth gear than in second, third and fourth.
I may do a little more digging today and see if I can come up with the source...
