This sophisticated, more powerful controller also can support up to five injections per cylinder and eliminates the need for an engine-mounted drive unit to fire the fuel injectors. This engine produced 345 hp at 5,200 rpm and 380 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm. This engine produced 300 horsepower at 4,400 rpm and 360 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm. Finally, towing capacity maxes out at 15600 lbs. The only internal change was an increase in compression to 9.
It heats up the incoming air to speed warm-up of the engine. Safety features include antilock brakes and front airbags. The Corvette even made use of the 6. Finally, towing capacity maxes out at an impressive 16100 lbs. Since its introduction, more than 650,000 6. This engine produced 400 hp at 6,000 rpm and 400 foot-pounds of torque at 4,400 rpm.
This engine had the same four-inch bore and 3. With the new system, braking is controlled by a signal from the engine controller and can be activated by the driver. Another new feature of the Duramax 6600's turbo system is the capability of the variable-geometry turbocharger to provide exhaust braking. The most noticeable internal modification was the compression being raised to 10. It had a bore, cylinder width, of four inches and a stroke, piston travel in the cylinder, of 3. Power door locks come as an option. This engine was replaced by the 6.
To aid in towing a 345 hp V-8 with four-wheel drive is also available. Lower compression also helps reduce noise and vibration, making the all variants of the 6600 a quieter and smoother engine. Finally, max towing capacity comes out to 15900 lbs. Finally, towing capacity maxes out at an 15800 lbs. Finally, towing capacity maxes out at 15500 lbs.
. Features, such as easy-access fuel filter and timing gears, reduce maintenance time and effort. The Duramax 6600 features a rigid cast iron cylinder block with induction-hardened cylinder bores; four-bolt, cross-drilled main bearing caps; forged steel, nitride-hardened crankshaft; aluminum pistons with jet-spray oil cooling; aluminum cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder; integrated oil cooler and a charge-cooled turbocharging system. Significant updates result in smoother, more refined operation, as well as reduced emissions New glow-plugs reduce start time by as much as 50 percent. The new Duramax 6600 in the Silverado and Sierra heavy-duty pick-ups will be available exclusively with the new Allison 1000 6-speed automatic transmission, featuring class-first features, like tap-shift range selection mode.
Where this engine differed was the compression ratio, it was increased to 10:1. It is powered by a 6. This truck used a 6. Designed exclusively for the Duramax diesel engine, the controller helps the injectors precisely meter fuel to the cylinders and can compensate for the variability of the injectors and fuel flow. Roomy cabins, comfortable seats, a comfortable ride, and powerful engines make the Silverado a great work truck. The turbo, which spins at up to 120,000 rpm, is high-speed-balanced, reducing vibration and resonance - and contributing to the engine's overall smoothness and refinement.
Aerodynamic changes to the turbo's vanes help tailor controlled application of turbo power for seamless and immediate response at full throttle. The lower compression reduces stress on the engine by reducing the peak cylinder firing pressure. A new, 32-bit E35 engine controller monitors and adjusts the engine's operation. This function is available on some medium-duty truck models and can replace add-on exhaust brake hardware. A revised variable-geometry turbocharger also enhances the driving experience of the Duramax 6600. The revised turbo also helps reduce emissions, while maximum boost remains at 20 psi.
The system features a 1000-watt grid heater located in the air intake duct, which is triggered automatically by the engine controller. Power door locks come as an option. In addition to the power increase in the Silverado and Sierra, all 2006 Duramax engines have been significantly revised to deliver lower emissions and significantly improved quietness and smoothness in every application. Power door locks come as an option. The Chevrolet Silverado still stands tall among a superb new crop of full-size pickups. Power door locks come as an option.
It had the same four-inch bore and 3. Power door locks come as an option. In addition to 50 more horsepower and 45 more lb-ft of torque in the Silverado and Sierra, changes to the 2006 Duramax 6600 build on a host of improvements introduced for '05 - improvements that bolstered an already strong foundation. . . .
