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.

    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

    So far so GREAT!

    0 5/5 Zach - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AirDog II 6.6 6.6L Duramax Diesel 165 GPH Lift Pump Filter (2001-2010) A5SABC109 Reading everything I've read everyone says the AD 165 is really loud. 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

This review is from: AirDog II 6.6 6.6L Duramax Diesel 165 GPH Lift Pump Filter (2001-2010) A5SABC109 First I would like to say MAHALO(Thankyou) to USA Freedom Diesel for willing to ship to Hawaii. 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

    Great Filter!!

    0 5/5 Wayne Womack - 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.
