Diesel Performance Podcast


Dec 30, 2016

All the talk about $30,000.00 or $15,000.00 budget builds... This guest blows those numbers out of the park with the story behind his 1994 regular cab. Tyler Kip ran 9.76 in the quarter mile in a truck he's built over and over again with less expensive parts than your later model diesel trucks. In fact, an engine build costs only $1,500.00 compared to 20K and up for later model Duramax engines. In this episode, Tyler talks through the years and the hard work involved in getting his truck into the nines, which as we learn isn't about money alone. For example, Tyler mentions the importance of suspension set-up that helped him finally break into the nines. He then goes into detail about what's next for his truck. This is a great episode for anyone interested in how other drivers think about their build projects. Doing more with less may be the only way for some.
