Diesel Performance Basics
Diesel performance is not just for those looking to take their truck to the track for the best quarter mile time. Most of our customers are looking for more power for towing and hauling, or just to have it when they need it for everyday driving.
The big misconception is that performance products will kill your fuel mileage, void your warranty and cost big money. This couldn't be less true! In most cases you do not lose mileage, but actually increase it, depending on your driving habits of course. There are performance options for every budget, so if you're looking to spend a few hundred or a few thousand we have something for you.
Monitoring your diesel engines vitals is one of the most important things you can do. The more information you have the better you will know how to safely run your diesel with more power.
Air Intake Systems
The basics of making power are simple. It begins with airflow; high-flow conical air filters are the first step to increased airflow to the engine. Steel heat shields or molded plastic air boxes keep hot air out and fresh, cold air flowing to the filter. Velocity stacks and precision-designed intake tubes provide smooth, uninterrupted airflow to the turbo.
More air in needs more air out. By installing a high-flow exhaust system you will see an increase in horsepower and torque. Fuel mileage gains may be noticed as well as a decrease in exhaust gas temperatures (EGTs). By lowering EGTs you will increase your turbo longevity.
Getting huge power and better fuel economy couldn’t be easier. Electronic performance products fall into 3 main categories: Modules, Tuners and Chips. All three types electronically modify factors such as timing, injector pulse rates, fuel delivery and more. Selecting the right unit for you depends on your intended purpose for the vehicle, and the vehicle itself.
