Tom Venhuizen became a sled operator when he realized it cost too much to build and run a sled pull truck. Now he can say he makes money at every sled event he attends! Tom joined the podcast to share a few stories about the operation of the Mechanical Mule. He explains how the mule works and how it has changed over the years. A newer pulling sled can be bought from two manufacturers, but Tom bought his back in the 1970s and has modified it extensively. Every year the pulling sled is inspected in preparation for the upcoming season for safety reasons. Although he may be along for the ride, Tom is also able to shut down the pull if it becomes unsafe. If you're interested in sled pulling, you won't want to miss this episode.

This episode of the Diesel Performance Podcast is a response to the debate between Danny and Paul about how much horsepower you can run on a stock long block Duramax. Duramaxtuner.com's Nick Priegnitz and Bob Petersen cover every issue related to high horsepower on the stock engine - diving into what to consider to achieve 550 - 800 rwhp, a horsepower range we call No Man's Land. The veteran tuners explain what kills engines and how to protect them. They also go into detail on the major parts that increase fuel and air on the Duramax, helping owners understand how to achieve a good, safe balance between power and heat. This is the episode every Duramax owner needs to listen to.
Danny and Paul throw verbal punches over how much horsepower a stock bottom end LBZ - or any Duramax - can hold. Larry LaPan visits the podcast and seems to agree with Paul that a stock bottom can hold 750 horsepower (his LBZ does just that). Danny argues 650 is the max because any higher and you'll probably crack a piston. Danny even mentions SoCal Diesel's Guy Tripp - renowned engine builder - who took his side during the July 8, 2016, podcast. So sit back and listen to the arguments and reasoning on both sides of this debate and draw your own conclusions.
XDP Monster Truck driver Dave Radzierez joins the podcast to regale the guys with war stories about his amazing truck. The XDP monster is powered by a 12 valve. XDP's Monster engine dynoed at 1,483 hp - not including nitrous he sprays every time he races. Despite its size, Dave makes this truck dance - doing backflips, jumps, and racing. His truck even jumped end to end school buses, which we find incredible. Join Paul and Danny in an unforgettable episode. You'll want to listen to this at least twice, maybe three times.
This is a Special Edition of the Diesel Performance Podcast with hosts Nick Priegnitz, Paul Wilson, and Danny Voss answering questions and responding to comments about a recent video post on the Clean Sweep - Duramaxtuner.com's emissions intact sled puller. The crew then dives into the New York Times article about rolling coal that also mentions the Clean Sweep. It's a timely discussion about emissions intact diesel performance and Duramaxtuner.com's perspective on the future of the motorsport.
Imagine an emission intact twin turbo - impossible some say - but the guests on this episode are determined to prove everyone wrong! The Diesel Performance Podcast welcomes Matt Rosenberg from Lewisville, Idaho. He owns a 2016 LML he's planning to build into an emission intact twin turbo. Joining Matt is Diesel Tech magazine's Austin Carlise. The two visited the podcast in person after delivering the LML to a fab shop where the kit will be installed. Afterward, the truck will visit Duramaxtuner where Nick Priegnitz will build the tune. Matt and Austin explain what's involved in the build and why they think now is the time for a twin turbo with the DPF ON!
