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 Manaf Abdullah - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Superchips 2840 Flashpaq for GM Diesel/Gas Vehicle (Automotive) great product. this is the 3rd superchips device i buy for the cars i owned. It has improved acceleration and response on my truck and also fixed the shiftings. You can control many things with this device such as the rev limiter, tire size, rear axle gear ratio, shift pressure, shift points... there are several options you can choose from such as Performance or 87 Octane or Towing Performance or Gas Saving.. I have not tried any except the performance 91 Octane which I always used 95 Octane anyways. had to update the tuner first to be able to tune the vehicle..Great buy as usual! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 2, 2013

    Rating (60 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

    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

    CTS Monitor

    0 5/5 dbrandt - See all my reviews 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
