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.

Kelsie Epp joins the podcast to talk about her passion for diesel motorsports. The addiction began early in life when she bought her grandfather's Duramax. The truck needed repairs and she took it to a diesel performance shop and the rest is history. Right now she's getting ready for the race season. Kelsie says she makes 100 drag passes a season! For those interested in participating in the sport, Kelsie says to talk to someone first for some insight about the sport before making the first launch. Along with the drag racer, she has a triple turbo truck. Kelsie participated in the Diesel Power Challenge and says she may want to participate in the UCC.

Shawn recounts the exhaustive, grueling three-day UCC and the toll the event took on his truck. He explains his build and the transmission that apparently let go and prevented his team from being as competitive as last year.
