Now the brand new 6.0L with the 6spd auto is a great combo..but that 6spd isn't availible in Suburbans and I cant afford a new one anyway.:stan3:
How often you gonna tow and how often will it get driven while not towing? The hp and tq numbers are pretty close on those two engines for over 2L difference in displacement.
The only way I would get a 8.1L is if it had an allison behind it.
