What’s TheBest Diesel

We asked the Diesel Tees Facebook Fans what their favorite diesel engine was and in exchange we’d enter them to win a free shirt. Below are the comments of those Diesel Tees Fans on what the best diesel engine is.


  • Bruno Frankowski Duramax because it cant get any better!
  • Christopher Faulkner P pumped 12 valve cummins because of how easily powet can be made with them and their durability. I’d like the I love the smell of diesel in the morning shirt.
  • Daniel Krumvieda 7.3 power stroke they run for ever
  • Walter Lazar III 7.3 ford Power Stroke diesel. The best engine with the least amount of issues and i love working on mine. shirt- diesel mechanics have bigger tools 2xl
  • Jon Schardt Chevy Duramax LLY!!! Why? Cuz it’s what I drive!! Real men wear bow ties! 

    And my choice would be “I love the smell of diesel in the morning” size medium! Thanks guys!!! Keep em coming!!!!
  • Tiffany Bachmeier 7.3 powerstroke just cause I like the way it runs. And not so many issues with them
  • Chance Barnhart Jr. 5.9 12 valve cummins. Why? because its an inline 6 diesel motor and it can still outdo the v-8 engines.
  • Ben Gothan 12vcummins no emissions no electronic bullshit just straight motor
  • Lace Cool Cummings for me  durability from workin hard to playin harder…I’m partial to the ‘when the turbo spins, the bs ends’
  • Cody Huff Powerstroke because while others are playing with tampons and others are already cummin ill be powerstrokin. I’ll take a shirt that says “Hear the whistle see the smoke you just been passed by a Powerstroke”
  • Trevor Lee Lansink Engine: Duramax. Reason: Cause if she don’t blow black, TAKE ER’ BACK!! T-
  • Jennifer Broadwater 5.9 24v cummins because its the best (:
  • Jennifer Broadwater and any shit!
  • Tador Machines I am not a brand snob or annoyingly bias, I love lots of diesels. But my personal favorite would have to be the 5.9L 12V Cummins turbo-diesel. So much so that I crammed one into my Ford Super-Duty. The straight 6 is one of the most tried, true, efficient and reliable engine configurations. It size and weight permits many applications, yet it puts out very respectable torque. The 100% mechanical engine allows me to easily service and maintain it in my driveway for many years of work on a lower budget. It also allows very low budget power upgrades if you’re a little handy. And hey… ya’ know, it’s comforting to know I can bump start it and go to town in the event of a massive solar flair.

  • Trey Rott 5.9 cummins because the cummins guys keep it straight the other guys swigs both ways

  • Brandon Floyd I like then all but I’d say my favorite is the 7.3 powerstroke never had any problems with it and will run forever. I’d like when the turbo spins the bullsh*t ends Medium
  • Chris Schlauch ”suck, squeeze, bang, blow”
  • Samuel M Schmidt 12valve cummins, no computer needed, simple to work on. when the turbo spins the bullshit ends
  • April Hudson Cummins are the best because they sound the best.. any Cummings shirt. Adult medium
    Thank you
  • Joey Myers I drive a Duramax and like it but if I got the chance would rather have a Cummins. They are longer lasting and stronger than any other diesel engine. They are also as easy to work on as a tractor engine. If I won would want the Suck Squeeze Bang Blow because its what we say at school.
  • Jared Green 7.3 Ford diesel. The best engine that ford made with the least amount of issues like the 6.0 -shirt- diesel mechanics have bigger tools M
  • Josh Frank 12 valve cummins, simply because diesels don’t get any easier or more simple to make cheap real power.

  • Andrew Washburn Cummins has that signature sound,..love my school bus!!
  • Jarrette Lutts lbz duramax, imo it’s the best duramax to get (no emission, problems from previous years fixed, etc.) Smoked a bit, turbo lit and that was it
  • Matt Leach 6.4 Powerstroke, Everyone knocks it because of the 6.0′s reputation but do the deletes and keep up with the maintaince they work well and last,cant beat how easily and cheaply they make hp either. love mine. Id like the suck squeeze bang blow shirt
  • Mark Stewart Dodge cummins 6.7. They most reliable Diesel engine of this time. It’s rough and durable and lasts forever. Tee shirt. Dodge makes it cummins shakes it. Black large.
  • Matt Luiting Cummins 12V! Their loud, lots of potential horsepower stock, and their just awesome!
    If I win: Compression Ignition Addict!
  • Zack Rogers Cummins, they are the best engine for a farmer. They pull good and fast. And if ya do it right, roll coal. 
    I don’t always whistle at girls, but when I do, it’s my turbo.
  • Thomas C. Haggan Cummins 12 Valve because it’s reliable, and my favorite shirt is your profile picture! “I LOVE THE SMELL OF DIESEL IN THE MORNING”!!
  • Taylor Helms DURAMAX! Because they figured it out from the beginning and have stuck with the 6.6 displacement for over 12 years, yes they hav made some changes along the way with different turbo sizes and VGT turbos and such but have not changed tremendously. You also can’t beat the tuning that can be done with EFI live as well. Backed by the extremely reputable Allison transmission with is an amazing transmission and with proper building can be extremely stout and withstand towing, sled pulling, drag racing or anything else you can throw at it. And it’s not a 300k mile motor in a 100k miles truck. The comfort ability of the interior can’t be beat, and has a lot of aftermarket parts available for interior, exterior, motor, ect. 

    As for the shirt, I’m partial to the “ring and turbo” shirt, which kinda speaks for my position!
