    I wouldn't be afraid of any of them...some have a little better block than others for big hp but in mostly stock form they do well. That holy grail 6NZ isn't all its cracked up to be in my opinion

    That's what I've been learning. I told him from my limited knowledge that most any of them are good as long as you arent trying to make a ton of power over what cat rated was possible.

    And hes already staying well away from emissions engines so we are ok there in regards to the dpf and all that.

    We have a total of (5) 2ws they’ve all been pretty solid best I know.
    I’m not saying they’re the best just been good for us so far.

    Mine is a 2ws, and I don't know if that is good, bad or indifferent. All I know is I have no complaints.

    I'm the same way with my loyalties, fierce as a mountain lion. Once you've earned it, I'll crawl through hell to help you. But once it's gone, you're likely not going to ever see it again.

    5ek,6ts are ok. Just don't try and go over 600 HP if you want to crank it up. The blocks are weak along the oil rail. 1lw,5ds,1mm,2ws are the strong blocks. Mbn,6nz, or all acerts are the sculptured blocks, have a history of the block cracking with age the 5ek and 6ts have single t-stat housings. You can up grade to the dual t-stats for better flow and circulation. Same for the fuel system. Be careful with fuel pressure on those two, they don't run as high of pressure as later models.
