Wanna make all your buddy's cry at the drag strip with your Cummins, without it breaking?? Well, we can help with that! A lot of people think that you can just throw big air at a truck without supporting mods and then run it, Yes a Cummins can hold a lot of power but there will be a point at which things go sideways, lucky for this customer it wasn't his rods. This Cummins came in for a valve failure, and when we tore it down for repairs we found that the bottom end was completely stock; that paired with s475/s362 turbos, dual fuelers, big injectors and methanol injection caused the rings to fail and wash out the cylinders. So, the guys at the shop here came up with a build and this was the result.
Beans Diesel performance 12mm Girdle to stiffen the block, paired with ARP main studs will prevent any of the crankshaft main bearings from moving.
Apex Diesel Performance triple beam connecting rods paired with Mahle de-lipped and coated pistons will make sure the pistons stay where they belong and withstand the higher temperatures and RPM's of this engine.
The customer had already installed ARP 625 head studs and Hamilton cams extreme duty pushrods; as well as; a couple other small goodies. such as the Banks power monster ram intake horn, GDP fuel filter housing delete and Fass fuel system.
Beans diesel performance "Bean Machine" front cover not only looks amazing it, also, is thicker preventing any flex from the Cummins torque and an O-ring sealing surface to better prevent leaks.
After hours of detailed work the engine was installed and we began the break in process.
Thanks to the whole team for the help and support assembling this beast!! And thanks Tom for letting us work on your truck!! ... See MoreSee Less
Air Dog 4G 165 On the Duramax there is no lift pump from the factory, and everything is drawn by vacuum from the CP3 injection pump, the Air Dog pushes up to 165 GPM at 15PSI from the tank to your high pressure pump, this is not only good for performance, but also, to prevent a failure in the high pressure system and damage to your injectors due to poor fluid dampening. ...

The #Airlift lift master 5000, paired with the Airlift Wireless One compressor system allows for the most effective easy to use system for your truck. Mounted out of sight the system does more than you might think, the internal gyroscope tells the compressor when to kick on and when to release pressure, this allows the system to automatically level your truck when a trailer is attached. The wireless remote included in the kit also allows the user to manually adjust ride height at any time with just the click of a button.
We had fun putting this bad boy together. 7.3L Powerstroke modified to hold up 700+ hp. Carrillo pro H rods, Mahle coated pistons with .030 milled valve reliefs. Girdle stiffener with arp main and cap bolts, rcd billet cam, smith brothers pushrods, beehive spring set and ARP head studs lay the foundation for this power plant. Thanks to Arnie and the team at C-Tech performance for helping us with the machine work and setup with this one. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning Dieseltec family, As many of you already know Brian has decided to follow his dreams and move on from Dieseltec. Todd and his wife, Kat, have decided to purchase it. As of today they are the new Owners. We are going to have a grand reopening on May 1, 2021; we hope to see some new and friendly faces. We are committed to servicing all customers, new and returning, with quality work. ... See MoreSee Less
Interesting, given that in April 14, 2015, the owner publicly posted that he would refuse service to anyone he knew was gay, or else sabotage their vehicle by leaving out connecting parts—evidently in hope of committing murder via high speed failure/crash.
We will remain open with full service capacity as we move forward with our (hopefully temporary) new reality. Our hours of operations will remain from 8am to 5pm M-F. We have adjusted our staff schedule and will be rotating technicians to continue to meet our customers needs.
We here at Dieseltec care about your health and safety as well as that of our staff, friends, and family. During this pandemic, the small changes will be Todd and Brian's physical presence at the shop and certain technicians on certain days. Our Office Manager Todd will be working from home as much as possible since the majority of his tasks can be done remotely. Please feel free to call as normal and expect to still be working directly with Todd as usual for all your needs. Our owner, Brian, will also be available but in a limited capacity as he is on the front lines working Fire and EMS and is choosing to limit his time at the shop to limit potential 3rd party exposure of our customers and staff.
We have also adopted additional sanitation practices to ensure your safety in our facility.
We are all in this together. Our prayers go out to each and every one of you. We are here for our customers and our community. Let us know how we can help. ... See MoreSee Less

Anyone else want to bridge the political divide for the holidays? Im gonna do some thinking on what's being discussed above. Signing off for now...
I understand the need to spew hate from the "tolerant" left continues, but folks, save it for another area. We want to help a family in need and your comments against me here only hinder a family getting help.
How about a frequent flyer discount? Ugh cant even wait to pay our bill! Do you take checks? I would nominate us but we have a roof, heat and jobs, but man this hurts! Thank you for being so great and doing this for a family in true need!
I know a family
well here in New York state we have a letters to santa program. you get set up randomly with a family in need and the christmas letters their children write to santa for christmas wishes. Doing that its kept anonymous and the program is the 3rd party that brings the gifts you were able to fulfill to the children in need. I'm sure you have programs like that there?
do they have to be WHITE or will another race do ?!?!? 😏 god bless
I wish people would say "Merry Christmas" again
I would bet almost anything that this ginger douche bag sucks mad dick on the low!
Summer brings laid-back trips to the lake, adventures into the great outdoors and rambling road trips—and it takes a lot of recreational gear to make it through the season. It can also bring frustration, stress and the occasional panic attack if you don’t have your rig properly outfitted to accommodate all the extras. Here you’ll find my top five categories to stay cool, maximize your free time and outfit your vehicle for an endless summer..
The Lift Whether you’re hitting the mud hole or just taking a lazy cruise through the dunes, you want a suspension lift that does more than just let you put big tires on. From a 2” leveling kit to a 12” kit for mud boggers, we can set you up with the good stuff for any off road application or tire size. Speaking of tire size, we can also hook you up with your favorite brand of wheels and tires or recommend a set based on what look and function you are going for. We offer a wide range of products from AMP Research to Zone Offroad and anything in between. Just imagine what your truck would look like with a 6” Skyjacker lift, Fuel Krank wheels, and a set of Nitto Terra Grappler tires. Yeah, we do that…
2. The Look Is it fog lights, running lights, or light up the night lights that you’re looking for? Whether you need to see or be seen, we can install a system that will light up your world. Projector headlights, LED cab lights, Light bars of any size, smoked side mirror LED’s, tail light conversions, you name it… If you want it lit up, you will get lit! There are so many options to dress up your truck to suit your needs and personality, we couldn’t possibly list them all. Suffice it to say, if you want Fab Four bumpers, AMP steps, Recon lighting, Bushwacker fender flares, or a Weathertech floor mat system, you can get them here.
3. The Performance We all want our trucks to be the biggest, baddest, fastest machines with enough torque to move a mountain. Whether you’re looking for “just a little more” for efficiency and mileage or a 1000 hp beast, we have the power solution you need. With an array of time tested and proven hard parts, tuners, and experience, we not only shoot for horsepower goals, but reliable, daily drivers. Our process begins with a full evaluation of your truck’s current condition. We recommend any maintenance and repairs needed to bring your truck up to safe and reliable standards using OEM parts and specifications and suggest upgrade or performance replacement parts where desired. We then work with you to build a plan to meet your horsepower and performance desires. Once we agree on a plan, our staff works together to ensure that your truck exceeds your expectations when you get it back from us. Our partnership doesn’t end when you pick up your keys, the staff at Dieseltec is here to answer your questions, give technical advice on your project, teach you more about your truck, and take care of it for the foreseeable future with regular check ups and maintenance. All part of reliable, dependable performance.
4. The Payload As much as we all love to soup up, dress up, and lift up our trucks, the simple fact remains that the purpose of these beasts are to haul stuff. Lots of stuff. If those leaf springs sag under the weight of your load, maybe consider an Airlift air bag system, Need to haul a 5th wheel? We have the hitch and rails. That big John Deere on the trailer making the tail wag the dog? We offer a new generation of articulating receiver hitches that’ll make you barely notice it back there. Bed not quite big enough to fit your gear? Bed extenders. Need to keep your gear dry? Tonneau covers. Storage and organization solutions abound. Whatever you can think of we have a solution for. Auxiliary tanks with tool boxes, slide out drawer systems, side boxes, swing out coolers with bluetooth speakers. The solutions for hauling everything from beer coolers to skid steers are at our fingertips. Let us know what you are using your truck for and we can help you find the right payload solution.
5. The Party So it’s memorial day weekend, you’ve put some effort in your truck for peak performance, you’ve got off road clearance, all terrain tires, the light system, the bluetooth coolers installed, and your truck is looking sharp. You are planning a trip up to the dunes for some fun in the sun. Maybe test your equipment on test hill, do some tailgating, and maybe a little fishing. Later tonight is the bonfire then crash in your tent for the night. Any way you plan it, you want your beast to be the center of attention. Where do you get the gear to outfit your truck? We’re not going to have the fishing gear or the beer, but the Taildecker tailgate system is available next to the secure storage locker for your fishing gear. We can rock your favorite playlist at the bonfire with a bluetooth speaker setup. You can get a ProZ truck tent for that 8 foot bed that never has to be made. There’s something women like about a pickup man…sorry..squirrel. If it runs on #2, we’re #1. This is Dieseltec. God. Country. Diesel. Yeah, we do that…. ... See MoreSee Less
How about more of God , guns , and HP. And less of the guy that don't know what bathroom to piss in...😎
Hey you guys did a great job on my brother Ryan's dodge ... he loves it
Or just sticking to your business acumen and talking about diesel.
Just because you have an opinion doesn't make them facts.
Here is a fact... Absolute truth... This is going to be a long post fellas... First and foremost, THANK YOU! Thank you for being the most legit, straight forward, and honest mechanic / business that we have ever done business with! Second, thank you for not absolutely chewing our ass, for buying internet parts! LOL (I'll let my hubby take credit for that!) Third, thank you for just being an all around amazing company, hands down, literally, the best! I don't care what ANY reviews say, take the time to get to know these guys, and they are the LEAST judgemental crew you will find... Four, thank you for actually caring about your customers! You have gone FAR beyond 'typical service' and pushed to get the Green Goblin back on the road! (my hubby is a giant pain in the ass) 😉 But, in all seriousness, your company, is a rare find... Believe me, between the 'Stang and various other motorized toys my hubby's collected, we've been to our fair share of mechanics lol, but hands down, Dieseltech, has been our favorite... By far, there's not even a close second! I never hashtag, but I'll make an exception this time.. #CUSTOMERSFORLIFE
,how about getting more power out of a 7.3 without damaging it ? For power pulling an Rv. 3.73 gears in rear end.
Todd’s Tips and Tricks For Diesel Truck Owners: Seven steps to take after an accident
Accidents are an unavoidable part of life. No matter how much we try or want to avoid them, we simply can’t. The only thing you can do is try and minimize the effects an accident might cause, and be prepared to take the proper action once the accident occurs. So, to help with that, here are seven steps you should take immediately following an automobile accident.
1) Determine the extent of damages and injuries
The most important thing following any accident is to determine injuries, and if anyone needs immediate assistance or aid. Auto accidents are dangerous, and it’s important to assess the health of everyone involved immediately preceding an accident and respond appropriately. Try and stay calm throughout this process. Panic is infectious and unhelpful, and will only hinder the entire process. If the damages are fairly minor it’s important to get all vehicles involved off to the side of the road. Leaving cars stopped in the middle of a road or intersection can cause further risk of accident and injury. 2) Alert the authorities Once the vehicles are out of the way of further harm, or if the damages are too severe to move one of the cars, make sure the authorities have been alerted. Typically a witness will have called before one of the motorists has the chance, but always make sure they’ve been alerted. Don’t assume someone else will take charge. 3) Exchange information If neither of you needs immediate medical attention, now is the time to exchange information. You need to swap names, address, phone number, email, insurance providers, policy numbers, driver license numbers and license plate numbers. If the driver isn’t the owner of the car, take note of their relationship with the car owner and get the address and phone of the car owner as well. 4) Document the Events Write down as clearly and succinctly as possible what transpired. Get the make, year and model of both cars. Include where the accident happened, and your version of events. Next, get the contact information from anyone who witnessed the event. Also, date and sign the document, preferably in front of a witness. 5) Record the Damages Document the damages as best you can. Hopefully you have a camera or can take pictures on a smartphone. Take as many pictures as you can, from various angles. Record all damage extensively. If there are no cameras available, write down a report of the damages. It is extremely important to have extensive proof of all damages. Make sure to do this for both cars. 6) File a Report with the Police No matter how minor the accident, a report needs to be filed with the police. This is extremely important. If you fail to file the proper report with police when the accident transpires, you can later be held completely accountable for all damages. No matter how trustworthy the other person seems it is necessary to document the accident with the police, for all parties involved. This prevents any fraud or misunderstandings later. 7) Contact your Insurance Agent The sooner you contact your insurance agent, the better. If at possible, do it while on scene with the police still present. This will help you accurately report the facts of the accident to your insurance agent, and strengthen your claim down the road. It is extremely important to be entirely honest throughout the complete process. Don’t exaggerate or fabricate. Try and stay calm and cool, taking deep breaths. Accidents are an unfortunate event, and are only worsened with panic and anger. Finally, do not admit fault in the heat of the moment. After an accident people commonly feel the need to apologize, even if the fault was not theirs. Resist this urge, as it can have serious legal and financial consequences later down the road. Wait until everyone has calmed down and you’ve spoken with both the police and your insurance agent. You can’t undo an accident, but you can protect yourself. Safe driving. ... See MoreSee Less

Todd’s Tips and Tricks for Diesel Truck Owners: Roadside emergency kits
For your personal safety you should outfit your truck with some emergency supplies. This is especially important if you are traveling through extreme terrain or remote areas. Many people toss a bag of some items in their backseat for year-round use; however, your kit should include items you will need in a cold weather emergency. Below is a list of items you should consider putting into a tote for emergency situations. Costs of these items will range, but this kit is certainly worth having if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need it.
Small shovel Windshield scraper and small broom Flashlight with extra batteries Several water bottles Snack food (energy bars, raisins, nuts, candy bars) Waterproof matches and small candles Extra hats, socks, and gloves First-aid kit Small knife Any medications you normally take (small portion) Blankets or sleeping bag Tow chain or rope Small bag of cat litter (for wheel traction in case you become stuck) Jumper cables or jump box Emergency flares Cell Phone Many kits are available that contain a majority of these necessities. Be sure you do not leave anything out of your kit! Here is a link to DMV Auto Emergency Preparedness Checklist www.michigan.gov/documents/msp/AUTO_EMERGENCY_KIT_543641_7.pdf... See MoreSee Less
