Power Stroke Bronco

Hi lArf inn ' avea UUSSllOlleBronco that is a gas-guzzling machine, but I want more power out of it, and I want it to be a diesel. I don't have the money to afford a diesel truck, but I can get my hands on a diesel motor.

Diesel Is A Recession Killer And A Job Creator

Seemed like I showed up just a little bit too late. When I started college at Winona State back in 2C01, all the upperclassmen on my rugby team said I should've oeen there a couple of years before. The competition was better, the parties were crazier, and we didn't owe community service for being on double secret probation. When I got my dream job here at Diesel Po ver (back in 2008), it was looking like print media was in critical condition. Well, I'm happy to report my timing is starting to...

Gm Delivered What Diesel Owners Needed

The Duramax diesel engine came out at just the right time. The 6.5L was no match for Ford's and Dodge's direct-injection diesel engines. And consider ng what a huge leap the 6.6L Duramax was GM and Isuzu's investment in new technology has really paid off in a big way. Only the Cummins engine can match the Duramax in terms of production longevity. As a credit to GM decision-makers, the first Duramax to arrive in North America for the '01 model year is very similar to the engine offered today...

Hybrid Torture Test

Oshkosh entered the Baja 1000 to test its new ProPulse drive system technology. This diesel-electric hybrid powertrain relieves the diesel engine from its traditional task of micromanaging the power sent to the wheels. Instead, the ProPulse drive system couples a 400hp 6.6L Duramax built by Gale Banks Engineering with an electric generator so the diesel can operate in its optimal power and efficiency range. The electric power from the generator is then sent to the A C traction motors located at...

Sold Axle Division To Dana

In an unusual and historic move, the company surprised the industry with an agreement with Dana, which involved the sale of its axle and brake businesses for 287 million. In exchange, Eaton purchased Dana's clutch business, which was a closer fit for Eaton's future truck transmission product plans. The largest company purchase of all, however, was the 1999 purchase of Aeroquip-Vickers, which made Eaton the number-two player in the hydraulic equipment market overnight. The company paid a hefty...

Returning to Randall's Performance and Accessory's SuperFlow dyno in Gladstone, Illinois, the truck put down 382 hp and 749 Ib-ft at the wheels with the GT tuner on the Extreme setting. In stock form, horsepower peaks and falls off quickly after 2,800 rpm.This was not the ease with the GT tuner. Horsepower sat at its peak (382 hp) for more than 200 rpm. Not bad for programming that doesn't smoke a lick and doesn't ncrease regeneration intervals. As we went to press, Bully Dog released an update...

Both Drake And Joe Have Extensively Modified Transmissions

To get their engines' mammoth power to the ground. Since Drake's truck pulls incredible 1.4-second 60-fcot times, he's been the harder of the two on transmissions and has had to take his out to refresh and repair it an incredible 200 times since 2006. He finally settled on a full-race 48RE from Sun Coast Converters that features billet input and intermediate shafts, and a manual valvebody. The output shaft is a custom unit from Mike Jarzembski, and the converter is also from Sun Coast. Cooling...
