In reply to MMUBMM...nobody has been arguing that point. It's been said, if you read all the posts, that a big cube gas engine is the biggest bang for your buck and that a diesel will cost more to build for "roughly" the same power. It's apparent that you are an avid MM diesel hater all the way. YES they are harder to get good power out of. The key is unlocking their potential,they are a different animal all together, and nothing you would do to set up any other color diesel will work. You want something different that's fun to pull? Try a big cube MM diesel. What does it take to be competitive in a 4 MPH class, keeping up with 600 cube John Deere G's and 420 cube farmalls? There's a 4 banger UB diesel running around Eastern WI that's doing it. Yep, it's mine. A big cube gasser would be better power and less work, but not near as much fun. Oh look everyone, there's a Moline...I bet it's big cubes like everyone else...yep big deal just another big MM...hey wait a minute...that's a diesel, let's go take a look. I have more fun talking about my tractor with the people before and after the pull than I would carrying around a 1st place trophy. You want a shelf full of 1st place trophies? Build a big cube MM gasser. You want a cell phone contact list full of new friends that think your tractor is pretty damn cool? Build something different. I can't sit and drink beers and talk foolish with my trophies...but if you can, you have fun with that, I'll be over here tweaking on my damn Moline diesel...
