Exclamation 06' and 07 5.9L differences?

Im looking at buying a 2006 or 2007 5.9L and just wondering if there are any differences between the 2 years. i know the 6.7 has the emissions restrictions and all that and the 06 5.9 doesnt, im assuming the 07 5.9 is the same way but id like to know for sure before i make a purchase....any info is appreciated, thanks.

No mechanical difference between the two. The 06 headlights have an amber strip at the bottom, the 07 is clear. 07s have the newer style tailights.

someone on here posted about the alternator being different. they had to change theirs. they said something along the lines of " dodge started using some 6.7 parts on the 5.9" i can't confirm because i own an 06 but im sure i read that here a few days ago.

Yeah, I should have said there are no mechanical differences that would be noticed by 99.999% of drivers.

I think the 07's started using a hydraulic assist on the cluctch assembly to ease pedal effort, whereas the 06's and below did not.

I had a 07 6.7 before I bought my truck now. I noticed the 6.7 is a little more high strung. By that I mean it seems to need more rpm to get the same power output as the older 5.9.
The other thing is the turbo is a VGT one and seemed to spool quicker off the line but was a little lagy when I was driving. Might have just being me.
