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.

    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. (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

    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?)

MY Duramax is stock and so far it's a great product and notice much better throttle response.

    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?)

    Saved me nearly $2K in repairs.

    I recently bought a used 6.0L F-250. I didn't know it at the time, but that engine has a horrible reputation for being very costly to maintain and constantly having issues. I took the truck to the shop right after I bought it and was shocked to get a quote for $1900 in repairs. They said I had bad injectors (the truck's computer kept showing the bad injector code). I realized that there had to be something I could do besides getting 8 brand new injectors. Injectors either work, or they don't. There's no in-between. I did some research and found out the 6.0L engines suffer from something called "stiction". I settled on Hot Shot's Secret because the product was designed specifically with the 6.0L in mind. The combination of those two products got my truck running like new. I don't have any more cold start issues or low power issues. Another benefit is the engine just runs much smoother and more efficiently. Theres also a noticeable increase in power. I ran out of the fuel... 5/5 Johnny "Johnny" (Dayton, OH USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
