It's pretty amazing how they can keep secrets better than our gooberment. They had to have started on this several years ago, and dumped millions into it (openly, in '14 like the article states) and the details are still a blur.

I think if I get another new diesel (Unlikely) it's going to be a Cummins powered Ram

I get passed by those things like all the time. Getting used to breathing air which is 25% black soot!

Yes it's a Functional hood scoop!! Nobody will spill the beans, I've been trying! They are only saying Bigger and Better Numbers. Only Single Turbo on the one's I've seen.
