The second generation of the cummins turbo diesel
The second generation of the Cummins changed in a couple different ways. The second gen was from 1994-2002. In 1994 the Dodge pickup got a fresh new look a long with a new injection pump the p7100. The second generation body style lasted until 2002. The p7100 injection pump lasted until 1998 when in 1998.5 they switched to the vp44 and to a 24v head. The p7100 was the best mechanical injection pump. In 1998.5 was when the game was changed, the new high flowing 24 valve head provided much more flow throw the motor. The previous second gens had 12 valve head up until then. Also in 1998.5 the vp44 electronically controlled pump came out. This pump was the first injection pump that wasnt all mechanical.The vp44 lasted until 2002.
