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.

    0 5/5 Andrew A Hall - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: DiabloSport I1000 inTune Vehicle Programmer (Automotive) Ordered this tuner a couple/three days ago and it came in last night! Plugged it into PC and let it do its updates... Plugged it into my Tahoe and wow! It does everything that I had hoped for and then some. Really easy to use!! Don't see how you can screw it up... Unless you get in a hurry. Just relax and let the darn thing do its job. I'm surprised at how many negative reviews this tuner gets, as I have had nothing but positive feedbacc from my own experience. I ordered this product because it could disable my active fuel management which switches the engine bacc and forth from a V4 to V8 which is very annoying due to the fact the Tahoe has a 40series FlowMaster exhaust system. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 29, 2012

When I plugged the I-1000 into my computer using the supplied USB cable the unit turned on to the main menu (the three selections - Tune Vehicle, Scan Tool, and Settings). I DID NOT touch it, unplug it, nothing. I just left it sitting on the desk.2. Running Win8 on my laptop, it took about two minutes to recognize the tuner before I got the autorun popup window.

I plugged it into my laptop at 8:00pm, it finally completed the update at 8:50pm. The download process went fairly quickly, at one point I thought it had locked up, but I let it run and in a minute or so it finished. But the writing process takes a LONG time, and it goes through several write processes. DO NOT UNPLUG IT OR MESS WITH IT AT ALL UNTIL IT FINALLY COMPLETES!!!!!5.

    What a joke

    Dont bother buying this product. I installed mine approximately a year ago and initially didn't have problems until I had to update the software in the unit. Down loading updates to the unit are slow and did not always take on the first time. Then resetting the truck to stock and downloading the new program to the truck was next to impossible. After multiple times it finally worked. The instruction manual was of no use to help with this issue. The final straw was updating the unit a month ago. Some how the program did not down load completely to the unit and ended up locking up the unit so it could not be used. After multiple attempts to fix the issue with tech support help I finally had to ship the unit back. After receiving the unit back and installing it on my truck. The unit still refused to download the updated program to the truck. I called tech support and they worked with me in trying to clear the files off the SD card and reload them. But we couldnt do this... 1/5 little white mother trucker - See all my reviews This review is from: Bully Dog 40420 Triple Dog GT Diesel Gauge Tuner (Automotive) Dont bother buying this product.

    Rating (50 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

    CTS Monitor

    0 5/5 dbrandt - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Edge Products 83830 CTS Insight Monitor (Automotive) This is a great product for keeping an eye on EGT's, Boost pres, MPH, etc. My fav thing about the CTS is the mileage coach. I have an 08 Duramax with EFI Live, S&B Intake, and 4 inch exhaust. Messing around with the mileage coach i found that driving in town in tow/haul mode at certain speeds i get better fuel mileage, same on the highway. In this case i have been averageing 23 mpg, where as before with a stock truck only 13 mpg. Just the intake, exhaust, and chip i went from 13 to 17-18, and then adding the CTS to monitor every thing i want and playing around with the mileage coach to 23 mpg. This is a great product for the price you pay. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 5, 2012

    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

This review is from: MBRP S6004PLM Down Pipe Back Single Side Off-Road Exhaust System with Front Pipe (Automotive) i ordered two of these systems, one for my truck, and one for my dads truck. we were both pretty happy with the purchase. Great sound and pretty easy to install. If you are thinking 5" i would not go that route. it was tight clearance going from the 3.5 to the 4". I am getting alot better fuel milage with no cat and no muffler. at least 2/gallon. i didnt think that it would really help and that the company just says that to sell systems but my dad and i have both noticed.
