Modernizing a 7.3L Power Stroke with Today’s Technology in Turbocharging, Injection, and Programming
Through the course of many years, Ford’s 7.3L Power Stroke engine has earned itself a reputation for being a reliable workhorse. Even though the engine hasn’t been produced in nearly 16 years, it still has a die-hard following in the diesel community. It is not unheard of for truck owners to sell their newer model

ProCharger and TBR Garage have come to the rescue with more power for both better performance and increased trailer pulling. Our performance dilemma was our 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab that we use for towing. Since the vehicle was purchased new with its 315hp 5.3 LS engine, six-speed automatic, 3.42 gears, and trailer towing

Tech: Ford 6.0L Power Stroke Garrett PowerMax Turbo Install
Diesel engines need two things to make power: air and fuel. We know that’s grossly oversimplified, but it’s true. If you increase the engine’s ability to ingest air, you can add more fuel and thus make more power. On a diesel engine, that often means adding a different (or another) turbocharger. While there are lots

Truck Torque: Adding a Cam for Muscle Where it Counts
The LS engine remains the darling of the performance world, but does that mean all LS owners are looking for the same thing when it comes time for upgrades? Obviously not, or every LS story would be about adding a cam, springs and a turbo, but such is not the case. While some may be

Hybrid 6.0/6.4L Power Stroke Short Block Build
In most racing circles, hearing the phrase “there is no replacement for displacement” at some point is fairly common. And, in most cases, the adage rings true. Increasing cubic inches is a great way to add power and performance to a race engine. When properly built, Ford’s 6.0L Power Stroke is actually a good platform

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Gets A ProCharger P-1SC-1 and 550 Wheel Horsepower!
If you’ve been in the truck scene long enough, it’s of no surprise that the popularity of SUV’s has only grown stronger. Late-model SUVs are not only safer to drive than their predecessors, but many can pack a serious punch in stock trim right from the factory. That said, the affinity towards these people haulers

From a gearhead’s viewpoint—take that back, anybody’s informed perspective—there’s one guy who stands out as a catalyst in the art of automotive as we know it.

Volant Performance Intake Kit Install
One of the first modifications many pickup owners opt for is adding a cold-air intake kit. They are easy to install, relatively inexpensive, and oftentimes provide immediate feedback with a louder growl and slight bump in power. Unfortunately, over the years, many companies have come along to try and cash in on this by offering

Heavy Hemi Breathing
For the money, there is no better way to increase your trucks horsepower potential and also instill an increased level of confidence than with a bolt-on cold-air intake (CAI) kit right from the box. They’re easy to install and fit perfectly! Thankfully, the aftermarket has proven itself and CAI kits are flying off the shelves.

Compression: An automotive term used by everybody, forever. Let’s get into some detail and maybe develop a better understanding.

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.

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.
