The first Cummins 5.9L diesel engines began life in the agricultural industry in the early 80's, but it wasn't until 1989 that Dodge released the first Cummins 5.9L I6 turbo diesel engine in the Dodge Ram.The 89-93 B-Series 5.9L I6 engine featured a Bosch rotary style VE6 injection pump and Bosch direct injection style injectors and a Holset turbocharger.This was a system that had been proven in the agricultural and industrial industry to be reliable, powerful and economical. There are still abundant performance modifications for these engines that can produce some great results. In fact, we recently rad a 1993 5.9L with 288k miles our dyno that put out 250 RWHP with only a set of performance injectors and some injection pump tuning.
