Yes they made a 3116 they are a 6.6 liter inline 6. I believe that they were rated anywhere from 200 to 300hp. As far as how good they are I've heard some people love them some hate them. I've never owned one so I can't say personally

 3116 is mechanical and makes 250 hp. Parent bore block. In a single axle it will be fine. Need special tools to set injectors, other than that i dont think they are bad, dont use alot of fuel so for a landing truck it would actually be pretty good.
 That has a 3126 and is ok, not an animal but works, bought that out of the want ad last time home and time will tell.

Ive got three of them in tandem axle dump trucks constantly running 48-50,000 pounds.truck and load of course.Im very happy with a single axle It should be all the motor you want or need.
They replaced and stepped up a bit over the older 3208 cats.
