  4. Hello all. Currently running an EM7-300 mechanical in dump truck. Looking to upgrade to a newer truck which is an 06 with the 370. Being a maxidyne can I expect similar performance with the stock engine or would I have to do turbo, injectors etc?

Just trying to figure out where to go from here. Take to shop and have leak down test and c
  10. Hi am new to site and diesel engines. Have 96 RD dump with mechanical 300 with 450k miles, 24 k hrs. Engine is using excessive oil when working, like a gallon a day.
