For many men and some women, the more power the better when it comes to diesel trucks! Pure Diesel Power is exhilarating, to say the least, and gives one a feeling of euphoria. There are many ways to gain more power in a truck. First off is by adding more parts or replacing parts for upgrades. These parts can also help the truck run better overall. These parts include:
When factory exhausts are made, power performance is almost guaranteed to be at or near the bottom of the priority list. Using a mild steel bent pipe is much more cost effective for the company to make than to use a stainless steel pipe for the exhaust. When having to build thousands of exhausts, globally, it makes more sense for the company to use the cost-effective method. This is turn is lower in the truck’s overall performance. Replacing the exhaust with a larger diameter and thicker steel pipe will increase the power and performance.
Adding a chip to the exhaust will tweak the vehicle’s mapping software. This means that it resets and moves to the different areas that the truck uses power. For example, in factories, the truck is tuned to be added to the worst conditions possible with air quality and gas along with failed or missed services schedules. When a chip is added, these qualities are moved so that they can improve the quality of exhaust air that the truck produces. This allows for better air quality, better gas mileage, and overall good servicing.
- Flash Tuning-
Flash tuning means that the existing fuel and timing maps within the vehicle are reprogrammed so that the vehicle has a better torquing system, smoother throttle response and like the chip provides cleaner economy and with more power. Doing this also does not affect the reliability of the vehicle.
If wanting to get the most out of the truck, it is also important to maintain a good service schedule. This means changing the oil properly and on time, doing yearly tune-ups and taking care of the vehicle overall. For more information about what other parts can be added or upgraded to a diesel truck, it is important to call local companies, manufactures as well as searching web forums online.
