    Those are egr engines. Pre emissions is before 2004 for most engines. But both your choices can be fixed. D12 is a reliable engine but mostly Europeans like them. And Cummins cm871 can be a good engine if tuned properly.

    Both are fine and should go to 1.5 mil without an inframe if not abused
