Truck Advisor Returns!

Caden Hess drives what he calls a "Pavement Princess" - a very well maintained 2010 LMM. He's now at the point where it's time to upgrade and power up - so where else should he go to discover his options than the Diesel Performance Podcast?

Paul and Danny go through Caden's options along and offer a few suggestions to get to 750 rwhp. It's a great episode except that Danny and Paul talk too much. 

Thanks for your time Caden.

The dead pedal on a new diesel can be frustrating, especially if the owner has driven a diesel with a tuned, responsive throttle. In this episode, Nick Priegnitz and Chris Ehmke continue their conversation about the dead pedal - but this time focusing on how to fix it. Instead of deleting the emissions equipment (like some suggest) they say the best solution is to tune the truck. Both Nick and Chris explain why.

The Diesel Performance Podcast celebrates 100,000 downloads! When we launched the podcast back in November 2015 we had no idea what to expect. All we knew was that diesel enthusiasts have a real passion for the performance aftermarket. Sure enough, the podcast found an audience.

Thank you for listening. We hope you enjoy our celebration episode, which contains a few surprises: We analyze Danny's one-liners, Chris Ehmke's laugh, and Paul's inability to admit he has made a mistake. 

And the producer, Rich Kuenneke joins the team to talk about the past, present and future of the Diesel Performance Podcast.

It's an unresponsive throttle that really throws new truck owners for a loop - especially if they're a previous owner of a tuned truck. Nick and Chris explain the problem and what causes it. This is the first part of a two-part series. The two guys solve the problem in the next episode on the topic.
