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

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.
