I question this...no one needs more pollution~...it's a diesel...suitable for heavy duty...I suggest not using a 4wd for racing purposes....get yourself exactly what you want...and do not modify this work truck~ no recommended...use it for work purposes~

I don't use the truck for work and I need to know what I want because I can't find anything online I need someone to explain it its very complicated for me that's why I tried asking someone who knew what they wee talking about?


Louder? Why make it louder? Loud diesels sound worse than rice rockets in my opinion. Also when you add horsepower you risk damage to the engine and driveline components. You may want to save some of that money for repairs.

I wanna know what I would need to do it without blowing my truck up and I have money for repairs on the side I've decided I'm gonna do something already i just wanna know what I'm gonna need to do that? ( like parts.....)?

I just don't wanna look stupid when I take it to the shop and don't even know what to ask for.

What should I do to it ?


sell it...and buy an environmentally ELECTRIC one~ like Tesla, or Nissan Leaf~ save the planet~

i got on here to talk about my truck man get out of the conversation your not helping


Keenan, something to consider....doing a big increase on the power of you diesel may be hard on your transmission and other driveline components. High horsepower diesels tend to find the weakest link.

some things you could do is slide your fuel plate to the front, get a wicked wheel 2 turbo compressor, get a 5 inch straight pipe, you will also need to upgrade your transmission turn your fuel pump up cold air intake 7/12 injectors which is a 200 hp injector also need to get a intake horn. you enviromental queers need to mind your own business and let people do what they want with their trucks and electric is for pussies and have no power

This tree huger hears diesel and freaks out even though diesels are way more fuel efficient than gassers and have tons more power than an electric car could ever produce or even hybrid and it can drive for more than an hour before having to be plugged in like a toaster if you haven't taken it to the shop yet tell them you want to make it less restrictive and you want a straight piped exhaust and new air filter and depending on what all you want maybe some internals to give you some more growl

Loud and fast and let me guess - lots of black smoke. Put a chip in it, big injectors and a big exhaust and crank the boost up until it blows up.


that is fine if you really do not need Air to breathe~ http://www.environmentalhistory.org/billkovarik/about- bk/research/henry-ford-charles-kettering-and-the-fuel-of-the-future/


Clean diesels are good. Black smokers should be crushed.

Alcohol fuel is a tax payer funded boondoggle that is expensive and produces less energy than it costs to produce.
