Nope the 06 is definatly one of the best year duramax's to buy! There the first year for the 6 speed and last year before they put emissions stuff in. They dont really have major problems. Just small stuff like water pumps and hoses etc..

^^^^^ agreed. i looked for a long time to find mine. check the vin though, if the eighth digit is a d it's got the lbz and the six speed. if its a two it's got the lly and i five speed.

The 06 LLY is mechanically an LBZ anyhow. Just a tune away from identical results.

Better check the 8th digit again- there are no "O". It is probably a "D", which would be a LBZ.
