Ive been into diesels long before they were easily upgraded. They have come along way in the last ten years. They gave me the power bug

My daily driver is a 816hp 1490tq mega cab. 11.89 in the quarter on 35 inch tires 7800 lbs. I built the twins and did all the work. Ball bearing garretts, dual pumps, 175hp injectors, water injection, studs springs, and a built trans, all the internals are stock




My brother had 03 Duramax that he just sold. Big twins, dual pumps, big injectors, built motor and trans, and a nitrous. It dynoed 965hp 1403 tq when he had it, since its dynoed 1121hp 1840 tq. No quarter mile times but it ran 8.0 @ 97mph in the 1/8 with no low end fueling (his wife drove it everyday) 2.4 60' .

Thanks!

Its to dissipate heat for a dive pressure gauge. (Pressure driving the turbos) its helpful when tuning the twins. His is what it looks like now.



The black cylinder is a particle trap to keep the nylon boost gauge line from clogging with soot from the exhaust.

Drive pressure is a biggie on the diesels, much harder to keep an eye on in compound form.

Sick truck man.
