About this book
Diesel engines are finally getting respect they deserve. Diesel trucks have always been popular for towing, but their orbit-altering low-end torque makes them great for off-roading, drag racing, and other types of horsing around. And with all the performance parts available for these trucks, it's not uncommon to see reliable, daily driven rigs making huge power. Diesel cars are also renowned for their efficiency and reliability-but they're responsive to performance upgrades too! Diesel engines work very differently than the gas engines most horsepower junkies are used to, so different performance principles apply. In High-Performance Diesel Builder's Guide, author Joe Pettitt shows you how diesel engines work and how to set them up to make big horsepower and torque, reliably. Pettitt uses over 325 color images and technical yet readable language to describe how to upgrade your intake, exhaust, turbo, and fuel systems to build more boost and make more power. There's even a chapter on nitrous oxide and propane injection. As for the rest of the vehicle, upgrades for your transmission and rear end are covered, too. With vehicle-specific chapters on GM, Ford, Dodge, and even Volkswagen vehicles, you can rest assured this book has the information you need.

    Very powerful chemistry for freeing stuck piston rings

    I cannot say enough good about this product!It solved a problem I had with my 2002 Honda Accord with the F23A4 engine (at 147k miles).The performance of this product exceeded my expectations.My car had grown more and more lethargic over the years. Trouble codes drove me to do a more detailed diagnosis. Root Cause: I had extremely low compression in Cyl #3. And a leak-down test revealed it was getting past the rings.I followed the procedure listed in the comments section below.The results were amazing. Not only did it increase compresson in the formerly "dead" cyllinder by more than 50%, it also improved the torque to the point where it reminds me of when it was new. It's able to maintain highway speeds and the climb steep hills of my daily commute without dropping to a lower gear. I'm an engineer very familiar with engines and vehicle dynamincs. I study this stuff and it's important to me. I'm very skeptical of any wild... 5/5 S. Franklin (San Francisco, CA) - See all my reviews, April 18, 2014

    really helped my dirty LB7 injectors.

    my 03 duramax has been running poorly for a while now, slightly rough idle, some white smoke on start up and worst of all, a very long crank time or no start at all when the engine was warm and shut down. I was pretty sure i was going to be doing injectors soon so i figured id give this cleaner a shot. it was pretty easy to use, its not a dump in the fuel tank type treatment though. its a little more in depth so if youre not comfortable with disconnecting fuel lines and such then you should take it to a shop to have done which would still be worth it because so far my experience is that it really works. it took a couple hours to run through all of the cleaner mixed with about 3/4 of a gallon of diesel but i monitored my balance rates the entire time and saw them all drop back within factory specs which definitely means that it worked. also the engine idles smoother, a lot of power has been restored and the throttle response is night and day better than it was before. best of... 5/5 mike d - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Works as promised

    0 5/5 James Maddox - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ACDelco X66P Fuel Injector and Upper Engine Cleaner - 16 oz (Automotive) I had a building carbon build up problem on my 2002 Chevrolet Express van. It developed an intermittent knock that progressively got worse. I removed all the spark plugs and poured the measured amount into the cylinders. After re-installing the plugs and driving it for a while to burn off the carbon, I swapped the plugs for new iridium plugs. I then noticed an immediate improvement in performance and acceleration. The best part is that the knocking is almost completely gone. The more I drive, the less knocking. This is the best way to remove carbon without removing the heads. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 14, 2014

This review is from: AirDog II 6.6 6.6L Duramax Diesel 165 GPH Lift Pump Filter (2001-2010) A5SABC109 First I would like to say MAHALO(Thankyou) to USA Freedom Diesel for willing to ship to Hawaii. Shipping was quick 3 days. Installation on AirDog system is alot clearer to understand if you watch it on "youtube" than reading the insructions. MY Duramax is stock and so far it's a great product and notice much better throttle response. It's also comforting to know that I have a low pressure pump installed as well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 30, 2013

    0 5/5 Manaf Abdullah - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Superchips 2840 Flashpaq for GM Diesel/Gas Vehicle (Automotive) great product. this is the 3rd superchips device i buy for the cars i owned. It has improved acceleration and response on my truck and also fixed the shiftings. You can control many things with this device such as the rev limiter, tire size, rear axle gear ratio, shift pressure, shift points... there are several options you can choose from such as Performance or 87 Octane or Towing Performance or Gas Saving.. I have not tried any except the performance 91 Octane which I always used 95 Octane anyways. had to update the tuner first to be able to tune the vehicle..Great buy as usual! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 2, 2013

    (4.6/5)
    Edge Products

    A great tool for diesel truck owners.

    The edge insight is an outstanding tool that I wish I had purchased a long time ago. While I already have a full set of analog gauges from ISSPRO in my truck, the insight adds valuable information that I could not get with a traditional gauge setup. The insight adds valuable information such as gear and torque converter lock status, instant mpg and average mpg (which is not available on an 02 GMC Sierra) and to read and clear codes; but where it really comes in handy are the ability to read things such as desired fuel rail pressure and injector balance rates, two increasingly useful troubleshooting tools if you are having engine issues. It also has the ability to connect a backup camera, which its smaller cousin the CS does not. I haven't gotten to install one in my truck yet, but its defiantly going to be coming in the next few months. Also, the device is update able over the internet which is nice, that process was easy, their software is literally plug and play, you plug in the... 5/5 Tai Chan (Albany, CA) - See all my reviews, October 10, 2011

    Edge Insight Performs As Advertised

    Within an hour of receiving my Edge Insight CTS I had it installed in my truck (2007 Chev Silverado 2500HD with 6.6L LMM diesel) with all my preferred parameters. I got the Insight in order to monitor certain engine functions -- engine coolant temperature, transmission fluid temperature, gear, RPMs, and fuel level (I have a Titan 52 gal. fuel tank) -- while towing my trailer, especially in the mountains. I found the Insight performs exactly as advertised. Prior to placing my order I had read everything about the Edge Insight on the Edge Products website including the user manual and had extensively read owner reviews. There were no surprises nor disappointments. Updating the software was very easy. I just followed the directions in the user manual. The included Akron suction mount is very solid and attaches firmly and securely. Since I prefer dash mounts I may either look at a ProClip solution to mount it on the left AC grill or a self adhesive disc to attach to the dashboard... 5/5 Bernard Seward "Mycopsycho" (Denver, CO) - See all my reviews, June 7, 2012
