Rank #1: 15K Budget Builds - REPOST

Podcast cover
Read more

Paul and Danny welcome a repost of one of the more popular podcasts - the 15K + 600 horsepower Budget Build episode that was uploaded way back in January 2016. 

Find a used, light duty diesel pickup - spend 15K on mods and get it below 13 seconds in the quarter-mile. That's the focus of what we call our budget build episode featuring a lively and rowdy discussion between a trio of diesel heads: Pete "Shibby" Przybysz (Powerstroke), Chris Ehmke (Cummins), and Paul Wilson (Duramax). The group discusses how they would spend 15K on their build, explaining the logic behind their decisions, which the other participants cannot understand or agree. In the end, former DPP moderator Scott Henricks picks a "winner" and pisses everyone off.

Podcast cover
Read more

PSP Diesel's Stephen Peters says a bullet-proofed Ford 6.0 is probably the least expensive, most reliable diesel power you can get. Stephen joins Paul and Danny on the podcast to explain the modifications included in the bullet-proofing process. He also goes into detail on the best way to keep a Ford 6.0 healthy (oil changes) but he also talks about oil filtration and how it's lowering maintenance costs and making the 6.0 look even better.

Jacob White works with turbos every day for High Tech Turbo as the performance product manager. If there's a question about turbochargers - Jacob knows the answer.

On the fuel side of diesel performance, the injector is front and center for engine performance. It's one of the first considerations for a modified diesel truck.
