Tobias Christie runs a diesel repair and performance shop in Mitchell, Ontario. Like many diesel shop owners, Tobias got started working for others, but then decided to go into business for himself. In this episode of the Diesel Performance Podcast, Tobias, Danny, and Paul talk about diesel motorsports in Canada and how it's different than the United States. Everyone agrees that the clean diesel movement is here to stay and nothing beats a good maintenance schedule for a diesel truck.
Mike Graves says the Ultimate Callout Challenge 2017 will be an amazing event for the diesel industry. Mike's Hollyrock Customs will be participating, for sure - but he also hopes to actually watch the anticipated power in action. Some of the horsepower numbers tossed around go as high as 3,500. Mike says his build will not go that high. He's mostly worried about one event - the sled pull. His truck has never seen "the dirt".
It's always great to hear from Mike Graves of Hollyrock Customs.
Ric Newberry of Exergy Engineering says he could talk for three days about injectors. Exergy is one of the industries best injector modification and diagnostic providers. In this episode, Paul and Danny ask Ric to define the various parts on an injector - from the pulse width, percent versus horsepower, along with many, many others. Ric describes building the largest injector so far - 700% over for the Ultimate Callout Challenge event coming up in April 2017. 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.
Paul and Danny jump into one of their favorite topics - LML performance. The guys spend a big part of each and every day helping LML owners navigate the performance aftermarket, so it's a topic as natural to them as the hide on a white tail deer. The guys tackle the dead pedal, emissions intact versus delete, CP4 failure, and a variety of other topics LML owners need to hear.
Lyle Richmond of Bully Dog joins the Diesel Performance Podcast to talk about the company's aftermarket diesel particulate filter (DPF) for the Ford 6.4L. The innovative design offers dependability as compared to the stock DPF known for failure. Lyle says Bully Dog's Performance DPF requires fewer regens of shorter duration. It increases airflow and horsepower. When combined with the company's calibrations, the Ford 6.4L owner will then be able to initiate regen and even perform a stationary or forced regen. Bully Dog's Ford 6.4L DPF is designed more for functionality than high horsepower, performance applications. Lyle says a contractor who depends on their truck to make money will want the performance DPF. It installs with a V-band clamp, allowing for easy removal for a manual cleaning - making it the last DPF a Ford 6.4L owner will ever need.
