Yes, and far less weight than the heavy duty so easier on fuel!

In the day, it was the "poor man's diesel", for those who did not want to spend the extra on something like a DT466, I suspect the 8.2 was much the same.
You are thinking of the 8v71TA commonly referred to as the "318" Detroit as 318hp was a common configuration in OTR trucks.

That line of motors, ranging from the 2-71 to the 16v92 are two stroke motors as opposed to the 8.2 DD which is a four stroke. Very different motors.
