I am thinking about purchasing a new Dodge diesel here in California but I was wondering how much of a difference is there in fuel economy and horsepower versus a Dodge Cummins equiped with standard emissions? Can anyone out there throw me a bone(or a link) on this subject? I have heard that the difference nowadays is nowhere near what is was in years past. Any truth to that?

2003 S.O. Federal Emissions: 250HP/460lb.ft. Available with NV4500 or 47RE
2003 S.O. Calif. Emissions: 235HP/460lb.ft. Available with NV4500 or 47RE
2003 H.O. Federal Emissions: 305HP/555lb.ft. Only available with NV5600

2003.5 The 47RE was replaced by the 48RE automatic transmission

2004 S.O. Calif. Emissions: 235HP/460lb.ft. Available with NV4500 or 48RE
2004 H.O. Federal Emissions: 305HP/555lb.ft. Available with either NV5600 or 48RE

2004.5 (50 state legal) 325HP/600lb.ft. Available with either the 48RE or NV5600

2005 (50 state legal) 325HP/610lb.ft. Available with either the 48RE or NV5600

2005.5 The NV5600 replaced with the G56 6spd manual gearbox.

Looks like since 2004.5 all the motors are now legal for Cali.

Was an interesting note to myself ... mine is not Cali certified and all the other ones I looked at specifically said California emissions. I don't know the difference ... just that it was one of only a couple that were this way.

Yup, since the 600's... everything is 50 state. No more HO or SOs.
