#PTOTY20 – Day 3 Recap: Fuel Economy and Seaside Photos
Fuel economy runs aren’t fun. Climbing into a truck first thing in the morning, hitting standstill traffic on the 405 and driving for a few hours isn’t a vacation. However, it is necessary for proper vehicle testing, and at the end of the day we could hang out at the beach. So maybe it’s not

#PTOTY20 – Burnouts and Roasting Tires
Ever since the dawn of the automobile, humans wanted more and more power. Why did they want this power? To perform epic, smoky burnouts, of course. Whether it’s a proper muscle car, a family hauler, or the latest pickup truck. With tons of horsepower and even more torque, trucks are burnout machines. We have 11

We’re all familiar with the concept of traction bars, or at least we should be. For those who aren’t, here’s a quick refresher. As torque is applied to the drive wheels of a vehicle, those wheels turn and propel the vehicle forward. If the rear axle of said vehicle is suspended by leaf springs, which

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
