New Dirt Released on the 2017 Duramax 6.6L L5P V-8 Turbo Diesel Engine

New information is starting to trickle in on the redesigned Duramax 6.6L L5P V-8 turbo-diesel for the 2017 GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado HDs. As we wrote on our blog this past summer, we’ve been watching the 2017 models closely, waiting to see just who will unveil the biggest and baddest diesel in 2017.

Looking Ahead to 2017 Diesel Truck Models

The 1,000 pound-feet of torque, at least coming from the factory, would have been unfathomable a few […]

Does White Smoke Mean Injector Problems?

We’ve heard of rollin’ coal, but rollin’ snow? Not a good sign. Blowing white smoke is a red flag for your diesel engine, yet we see this happen all the time to our customers. In many cases, white smoke emanating from the tailpipe (often at idle once the engine reached operating temperature) typically means a worn out injector. Now this isn’t always the case, but after some trouble shooting we’re usually the go-to shop when diesel drivers need refurbished, rebuilt, or new […]
