The first generation Cummins Turbo Diesel
The first generation Cummins is where is all started for the daily driver diesel. The first gen stated in 1989 with a non inter-cooled Cummins. The non inter-cooled Cummins just didnt have a cooler to cool the air coming off the turbo, so there was a tube that came straight from the turbo to the in take manifold. In 91 Cummins added the inter-cooler for better performance. The Cummins had a VE44 all mechanical injection pump. This pump was a rotary style pump. This injection pump lasted until more horsepower gains where needed in 1994. The first gen Cummins also had the square body dodge style. A good first gen with no rust and all original is very few and far between but the ones that are out there are some of the most iconic trucks ever to be produced for its time.
