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 value

    0 4/5 C.S. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stant 10591D Diesel Locking Fuel Cap (Automotive) I ordered two of these for my F-250. I was shocked to find out that the two I recieved in separate boxes were keyed alike. I dont know if this was intentional or if all of these take the same key. But it meant one less key on my ring. They feel sturdy enough. For half the price of the same item not keyed alike at my local parts stores I would consider this a good deal. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 12, 2012

    Quieter idle and fewer re-generation cycles

    Pros: My car is now much quieter at most RPM's, especially idle. Haven't noticed a re-gen cycle in over 1,000 miles! (car must be running clean) No decrease in fuel economy.Cons: Hard to get out of the bottle and into the tank without making a mess. No noticeable increase in fuel economy. Have to use high doses to notice quieter engine.I would recommend that others try Max-Tane, but I wouldn't make any promises to them about it's performance. I bought a second bottle to give it more of a chance to prove itself.Max-Tane made some improvements to my 2011 Mercedes Bluetec. I've used it for over 1,000 miles so far and the two biggest improvements I've seen are that the idle is so quiet now that few people would realize I was driving a diesel car, and I haven't noticed the car go through a re-gen cycle since I started using Max-Tane. There used to be a re-gen cycle every 200 miles or so which ends up burning extra fuel and making the exhaust... 4/5 Bryan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    I use a cetane booster as recommended and my Duramax is smooth and quiet

    0 5/5 Geno (Notes) Corleone - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Royal Purple 11755 Max-Tane Total Diesel Fuel Performance - 20 oz. Can (Automotive) I use this in my Duramax at each oil change and fuel filter change.Pour what you can in the fuel filter and then install filter on truck. Put what is left, if any, into the fuel.When you start the truck this is the way to clean your injectors and save bucks since the dealer does almost the same thing but they use a fancy machine. I've been doing this for 10 years and all my injectors are humming along. All original.Also, I use .25 ounce synthetic two-stroke oil per gallon of fuel. This make a huge differnce in your injector life and the sound of your engine. Finally, I use a cetane booster as recommended and my Duramax is smooth and quiet. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 8, 2014

    0 4/5 Mike - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AirDog (A4SPBC088) Fuel Air Separation System (Automotive) Works well and hooked up easily enough. I was just surprised at how hot the fuel was when I bled it for the initial prime. Would be a good idea to plug the return from the engine and maybe run the fuel through the fuel cooler after it is compressed and heated. I don't know that may be more trouble than any possible gains. Other than that it's fulfilling it's purpose which is saving my cp3 pump. My fuel mileage actually went down but that is probably due to my engine actually getting what it has been demanding. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 22, 2014

This review is from: PPE Economy Xcelerator Tuner for 2001-2010 GM Chevy Duramax 6.6L LB7 / LLY / LBZ / LMM 111010000 The tuner works as advertised, although I didn't see any increase in my MPG, it has substantial more power at the same MPG. I loaded the #2 tune on my '07 Duramax. I'm giving this product 5 stars because it works as stated, easy to follow instructions, and the customer support is the best of any company I've ever dealt with. You call a number and a customer service rep. actually answers ( No BS phone tree), spoke perfect english and was very knowledgeable about the product.
