That's the truth.
I have a gripe about the cummins. The oil filter is in a bad location because it drips on the cross member and front axle when you change it. The crankcase plug is not the greatest design either. It starts flowing after a 1/2 turn. Unfortunately it takes about 3 full turn to remove it so your hand is oil soaked by the time the plug is out. Otherwise, turbo and injector work is far easier on the Cummins than the Powerstroke. I can't comment on the Duramax.
