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.

    good but tricky

    0 4/5 RJ (warrenton, oregon United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stant 10591D Diesel Locking Fuel Cap (Automotive) This has work fine now for 1 year. I thought it was broken at first try. When you insert it in the gas tank be sure to turn it hard until you here a loud snap.It sound like it broke but this is how it sets the lock. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 24, 2011

    Stant 10591D works with 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD Models

    0 5/5 ssectors - See all my reviews This review is from: Stant 10591D Diesel Locking Fuel Cap (Automotive) As of 2014-0807, Amazon's vehicle fit profile informs that this cap will NOT fit the 2014 and 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD models.Stant Corp. engineering dept. verifies that the 10591D DOES fit these models (the world has yet to be informed).The cap performs as advertised, locking and unlocking as designed. The keying mechanism seems a bit hinky until one discovers a light touch is all it takes. Two recommendations:1) Put the key on a flexible lanyard (cord) so that you're not fumbling with a cluster of keys while unlocking;2) Turn the key to lock the cap and remove the key before screwing the cap back in. Push against the resistance until it clicks. One click is enough. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 13, 2014

    Needs a good instruction sheet

    0 3/5 Map Boy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stant 10591D Diesel Locking Fuel Cap (Automotive) OK, the cap works, but could come with better instructions. As in, ANY instructions. The buyer is left to figure it out for himself. Or try going to Stant's website to find "Installation Instructions," as the fine print on the box tells you to do. Like several other reviewers, at first I thought the two caps I purchased were defective. They didn't seem to lock. The trick is you need to turn it more than a couple of clicks. I finally discovered that if I turn the cap about a half turn after it starts clicking it will lock. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2014

    Good value option

    Perfect genuine GM replacement for my Duramax LBZ diesel truck and if you are mechanically inclined, you can change the filter yourself and save some cash and also eliminate the labor charge that your dealer will add on. Be aware that you should purchase a special tool to loosen the WIF (water in filter) sensor that is located on the bottom of the filter. I bought my tool several years ago and think it was around $30, but believe you can find one for about half that price. If you are stubborn and refuse to get the correct tool, be careful if using Channel-locs or you can crack the plastic sensor connector. You will also need a filter wrench and remember to disconnect the WIF sensor wires at the disconnect plug, upstream of the filter, to allow the sensor wires to pass through the filter wrench loop.Some people indicate that they had to remove the right-front wheel and wheel well liner to access the filter, but I have not had any problem doing the job from the top side... 5/5 Bill Goode - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: ACDelco PF2232 Professional Engine Oil Filter (Automotive) Since AC, stopped making the PF-35,(long filter for a V-8 Chevy) year's ago, I use this one on my Late Model dirt car, (all Chevy small block's). And on my Hotrod, '24 Ford T-Bucket, 454BB, great filter for these engines. As I don't just through them away, I cut them apart, and check for myself, they do a great job, on catching this southern red dirt.

    Edge Products 83830 CTS Insight Monitor

    Rating (114 reviews):
    (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
