The Diesel Performance Podcast introduces new co-host, Danny Voss. He joins Paul Wilson in the fifth episode talking about diesel fuel and all you need to know when the temperature drops. Diesel fuel gets cloudy and gels unless you take the proper steps to avoid the problem. The guys offer some common sense ideas to keep your truck on the road with a lively conversation about the differences between winter additives and winterized fuel, for example. You'll learn the difference between cloud and gel points and what you need to do to reverse the problem.
What happens when you bolt together various parts of one truck with another? The results may vary, but it's sure a lot of fun to see it all come together and work. Or maybe it doesn't work and another "Frankenbuild" or "swap" bites the dust and gets parked with a tarp over it.
In this episode, Paul Wilson and Scott Henricks talk swaps with a trio of owners: Eric Swanson of Duraburb - a company that specializes in the installation of the Duramax drivetrain into a Suburban. Then Nick Priegnitz of Duramaxtuner.COM talks about the ApacheMAX, a 1958 Apache bolted to the frame of a 2003 2500HD. Tony Zuccarell of Elgin, Ilinois talks about dropping a Cummins into the body of a Ford Expedition.
Sit back and enjoy - and maybe you'll be inspired to do your own Frankenbuild or not.
Chris Klenke of Aftermath Diesel Services, Villa Ridge, Missouri talks with DPP's Scott Henrick's about the Cummins, an engine Chris knows a lot about. The conversation spans all generations of Cummins and describes the pros and cons of each. Chris also explains what to look when purchasing a Cummins and the modifications that may best serve the owner's need. The Cummins engine is simple - but complex at the same time.
