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.

Mega Knockout- 2017 Ram 3500
The stunning ’17 Ram 3500 featured in these pages is the first brand-new truck 24-year-old Cameron Guernsey ever purchased. It was originally slated to be a great-looking street rig with color-matched trim, aftermarket wheels, and low-profile tires, but Cameron’s plans changed after attending the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he saw builds

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,

An Autocross Ready Diesel-Powered 1964 Volvo Amazon
Right now, you might be wondering why a classic European car is gracing the pages of this truck-focused magazine and who would even build a car that’s as obscure as Marc Terrien’s ’64 Volvo Amazon. Well, first, it is diesel-powered, which makes it unique. Second, Marc’s company, Heritage Driven, actually specializes in projects like this.

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

Detonation: This Beautiful Country
As I stroll the streets of Moab, Utah, during the annual Easter Jeep Safari, I can’t help being in awe of the surrounding landscape. The pronounced ancient rock formations, mesas, waterways, and snowcapped mountains that serve as a backdrop truly make this place a beautiful destination. Being in Moab makes me think about the different

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

The 6.0L Ford Power Stroke engine has been maligned throughout much of its existence due to various shortcomings inherent in the original design. However, in some circles, the 6.0L is a revered powerplant that ranks up there with the best diesel offerings. Consider Cody Hamm from Wilmington, Ohio.
