Diesel Competition

So Guys,
I have never been big into the diesel market in any way shape or form. So I wanted to ask the question of is there any competition out there as far as diesel trucks that could challenge our Jeeps? I have heard of super tuners that supposedly give Major HP and TRQ bumps and so and so forth. Cant honestly be sold on something like that IMHO. Just looking for general knowledge or kill tales so on and so forth. By the time I get home I wont be worried about anything spouting black smoke through a stack, but I still thought it would make a good convo.

I'm slowly getting back into the mix. Been a long road
between the Jeep and Life. Lets see where it leads this time......

I had a 2005 CTD with upgraded turbo, injectors, programmer, exhuast and it made 550hp 900tq. Never had it down a track but when the turbo kicked in that b!tch hauled. Diesels will make SERIOUS power.

The new Audi SQ5 appears to give good performance for a 3liter, with twin turbo's of course!

Yeah I have heard this a lot. But would I be correct in saying that these trucks are completely reliant on having boost in order to compete?

Stock, don't know of any that can play ball

But I have seen very stock looking diesel beat a nitrous Jeep, of course it had been modded just not on the outside

Absolutley. Mine made about 45lbs. Some guys are making 80-90lbs with well over 1000hp and 1500+tq. These trucks are heavily modded though. I got a buddy that does 11.4's and takes mustangs lunch money on the regular. Diesels are torque monsters.

stock truck, there are none. but remeber with a simple programmer, they can get 150-200 HP from it. my brother in law has a 07 f250 with bullydog programmer. its OTF tuning. he can go from regular to max HP, max tq, in the flip of a switch. and it hauls ass. he'd give me a run for my money. he has told me about some tune called a crazy larry tune, (i think) that is absolutely ridiculous. but risk blowing the motor so he never put it in.

PWR 426

Yeah I have seen some great videos of these trucks but never a comparison of price and time invested to get them where they are. I figured it would be a good chunk of change to get it rolling that fast *safely*. But good times none the less

Yeah that is what I have heard is that there are some tunes out there that are an insane booster. But from a Dig I cant see them taking it, although I do understand they can brake boost off the line I still don't think they will match the launch. The highway I think could be a different story though. Just thinking out loud

Yup Crazy Larry is a custom tune to Bullydog. And the Cummins trucks use Smarty TNTr its like a race tune that will fry a stock trans.
