There's been a lot of static
building up surrounding the results of Breaking Point one and two from H&S
Performance. A lot of apprehensive onlookers have seemingly found a flaw in
what turned out to be a high-stakes (and high RPM) competition between a Ford
6.7L Powerstroke and a GMC 6.6L Duramax. The hot debate boils down to this: was
the Duramax given an unfair advantage? To get to the answer, it's important to
look at the hard facts. The competition wasn't H&S's original intention. In
fact, they just wanted to have a little fun and give the crowd something to
smile about. But after the GMC had finally given way, this "Breaking Point"
hoedown became more of a diesel driver showdown.
