To SEMA or Not To SEMA?

October 26, 2007

It’s that time of year again when Las Vegas turns into a Diesel Performance mecca of sorts.  All the other guys in the shop get to take off for the annual SEMA show and the web department gets to stay and make sure things are running right.  Do I sound Bitter?  It hurts even more to live and work on I-15, which is the main thoroughfare that connects Idaho (Home of Bullydog Diesel), Northern Utah (Home of Edge Products) and Southern Utah (Home of Parley’s Diesel Performance) to Las Vegas.

A couple days ago I saw the Bullydog guys getting back onto the highway after a pitstop at the local Flying J and I was half tempted to sneak aboard their rig, turn off my cell phone and just sort of disappear for the next week.  We will see though, I might just make it to SEMA yet!

Time + Money = One Sweet DMAX

October 11, 2007

What’s the best way to make a Duramax faster?  Put it in a car instead of a truck of course!  If you want all the dirty details on how this guy was able to squeeze a Duramax in this Grand National, you will want to check out this months issue of Diesel Power.  For us here at Parley’s Diesel Performance, we had to see it to believe it.  When we saw it on the internet a couple months ago, we thought it was a joke; but sure enough its legit, and one of the cleanest conversions around.  We tip our hats to David Morad for taking Duramax Performance to a whole new level.

Diesel Programmers and Tuners, It’s Just That Easy!

October 11, 2007

A lot of our clients here at Parley’s Diesel Performance have been asking just how hard it is to install and uninstall the Diesel Programmers and Diesel Tuners that they are interested in purchasing.  The other day I put together this video of me uninstalling the Diablo Predator tuner prior to taking it into the local Dodge Cummins dealership for some recall work. The best part was, they were doing some reflashing of the computer etc.. and they had no idea that it had even been on there.  For those of you wondering about the install process, we will be adding another video on how to install shortly, but the steps are close to the same and just as simple.

What Will Save Powerstroke Performance?

October 11, 2007

With the Van aaken C5 going into mass production in the not too distant future and custom tuning software following shortly thereafter; the question on a lot of people’s minds is, “Is this just going to leave the Powerstroke diesel even further in the dust?”  As much as you blue oval drivers out there would like to deny it, a custom tuned Cummins diesel is going to be one more nail in the Powerstroke coffin when it comes to head to head competition.  If you have any input/rebuttals let me know.

Diesel Power Challenge….Best of the Mediocre?

October 11, 2007

So in this months issue of Diesel Power magazine they featured coverage of the Diesel Power Challenge 2007, and for the third Challenge in a row a Duramax drove away victorious. Coincidence? I think not. I must admit that even though I drive a Cummins now I am pretty stoked that Chevy has finally been able to stake their claim in the diesel performance market. After years of trying to convince myself and others that there was such a thing as bow tied diesel performance as I drove my 1996 6.5L GMC in high school I gave up and went the Cummins performance route.

It was just my luck that shortly after going to the “Dark Side” that GM decided to actually enter and begin dominating the diesel performance market. Duramax performance has become quite the hot topic as of late but even if you are into Powerstroke performance or cummins performance it’s hard to deny the sting left after that shiny red Duramax took its second straight challenge by storm.

Now I don’t want to get into the fact of whether or not the the Diesel Power challenge is an better test of who’s truck is actually the best or who’s truck is alright in three different areas. Most of the people into Sled Pulling or Drag racing only that I have talked to would like to take on some of the trucks who have won or placed high in the challenge in their specific event and see who came out on top.

I will leave it at that but I do want to talk about what some of the tools are that are making all these wins for the Duramax possible and what tools might be on the horizon for the Cummins to help them compete even better with the Duramax.

The Trucks that have been winning most consistently in the diesel power challenge are running a nice little program called EFI Live For those of you who drive a Duramax and dont know about EFI Live you are missing out. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have COMPLETE control over your tunes. Or have the ability to log everything your engine is doing and then build custom tunes around what you see. That is why, in my opinion at least, the Duramax has been so dominant in events like the Diesel Power Challenge because you can have a completely custom tune for each event….Easily.

So does this mean that the rest of the big three are out of luck? Well if you drive a CR Cummins Christmas is just around the corner. We have been talking to some of the Beta testers who have been testing not only the new C5 module from van aaken but the custom software that will soon be released with it as well. From what they are saying this is going to be the closest thing to EFI Live the Cummins might ever see. Now we can’t tell you much more but when the new software drops expect big things including an almost non existent red line and COMPLETE control over your Cummins.
