The Duramax engine is Chevrolet’s trade name for their diesel engines for light duty pickup trucks and medium duty. First used by GMC and Chevrolet in 2001. Called the RPO [regular production option] LB7 [engine code1], Listed as one of Wards 10 Best engines in 2001 and 2002, GotEngines.com has General Motors 6.6L Duramax Diesel Engines For Sale.
Duramax is produced by DMAX, a joint venture between GM and Isuzu in Moraine, Ohio.
Being an L-Series GM engine means every variant has it’s own particular code. The code matches the engine to the rear axle ratio, transmission, GVW [gross vehicle weight] load rating and other options.
This is a list of all of the Duramax L-series 6.6L engines;
There is no need to get into the specifics of each engines particular details. The point I’m making is that every application is somewhat different, so GM makes different versions of the 6.6L L-series V8 diesel for each separate vehicle.
For instance, the LBG variant would reside under the hoods of; The Chevrolet Silverado HD, Chevy Kodiac, GMC Sierra HD and the GMC TopKick. The LLY variant went into the Chevy Express Van and the GMC Savanna van, both of which are full sized maxi vans.
Chevy and GMC truck and van owners are very discriminating about their trucks and the same holds true for the replacement parts they use. I own a GMC pickup truck, and while it has a gasoline engine in it, I’m very sensitive and picky about who I buy parts from. Like GotEngines.com, I’m not interested in cutting corners, all that does is set me up for failure and cost more $$ in the long run.
