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 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?)

    So far so GREAT!

Well I can tell you that on my 2005 Duramax it is not loud at all. It is more quiet than a half ton gasser's fuel pump and when the truck is running you can't hear it at all unless you really try to listen for it.Long story longer. It has really helped my trucks all around drive-ability. At full throttle in 3rd gear I no longer run out of fuel. I thought it was the trans slipping before i put the pump on. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 24, 2014

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
