Detroit Diesel DD5; Smaller Size Meeting Larger Demands
Extensive amounts of research and development that manufacturers invest in the development of modern diesel engines is a major reason why today’s oil burners are much more powerful, efficient, and smaller (physically, structurally) than their predecessors. Many of these engines’ performance is on par or even better than older engines with larger displacements. Additionally, today’s

Diesel Power Challenge 2019/Day 5: Sled Pull and Awards #DPC2019
Diesel Power Challenge is not an easy event to win. Dominating one discipline in the competition does not guarantee a trophy. Competitors must be consistent throughout the event to be in the running for the top prize. And like many Diesel Power Challenges of the past, 2019’s DPC came down to the last day and

DPC 2019/Day 4 Trailer-Tow Cone Course #DPC2019
As usual, Day 4 of Diesel Power Challenge 2019 Presented by XDP finished off with the Trailer-Tow Cone Course, made all the more diabolical this year with the addition of a tapering reverse chute, several high-speed straightaways, and the 90-degree reverse trailer box. Before setting out on the course with our 11,500-pound trailer in tow,

Drag racing. To those of us who love diesel performance, seeing two pickups blast down the track is a thrilling experience, rivaled only by watching 1,000hp rigs scorch the rollers of the chassis dyno.

John Deere PowerTech 13.6L; Modern Engine Demands Met with Clean Slate Innovations
To be competitive in a booming market, today’s diesel engines must be capable of meeting—and in many cases, exceeding—manufacturers’ tough reliability and durability benchmarks, as well as various state, federal, and world emissions regulations. During the initial stages of development of its new 13.6L PowerTech engine, John Deere took what it calls a “from-scratch approach,”

Particulate Matters: Holy $*@%, They Did It!
I’ll start this column entry with a confession. While Diesel Brothers (featuring Dave “Heavy D” Sparks, “Diesel Dave” Kiley, Keaton “The Muscle” Hoskins, and Josh “Red Beard” Stuart) has earned worldwide popularity (let’s be real here, it’s full-on superstardom at this point) since making its television debut in 2016, I haven’t been as rabid a

Bolting on L5P Performance; Installing Banks Power Ram-Air Intake and Monster Exhaust
Enhancing performance of the 6.6L Duramax L5P diesel engine that powers ’17-to-current GMC and Chevrolet trucks is not an easy proposition. General Motors’ calibration engineers have made it very difficult to manipulate the engine control modules that govern these engines, implementing code that essentially locks users out of critical fuel, timing, torque-management, and other tables.

1932 Willys Transformed Into An Aviation Tanker
The early 20th century brought us many things that boomed around the same time. Though automobiles and planes were around decades before, it took time for these engineering marvels to gain popularity. Henry Ford’s production line lowered the cost of his cars, which made them more affordable for the general population. On the aviation side,

Fueling Around: 6.7L Power Stroke Fuel System Upgrades
There is no doubt the current generation of Ford Super Duty trucks are serious performers, with the stout 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine leading the charge for the Blue Oval’s faithful followers. However, despite the trucks’ plusses, they’re also hindered a bit by a somewhat fragile CP4.2 high-pressure injection pump that fails without warning. Due

Low Fuel Pressure QUESTION: I purchased a ’15 Ford F-350 dualie with 37,000 miles on it. In the service log, the previous owner recorded a low-fuel-pressure issue around 15,000 miles, which the dealership fixed by replacing the stock transfer pump. The problem reoccurred at 43,000 miles. Under hard acceleration, the low-fuel-pressure warning appears on the
