end of an era

Spring 2005, I was working at a small truck shop in Southern California, turning wrenches. The diesel bug had already bitten me, we were installing a few intake/exhaust/tuner combos a day and my paychecks were getting turned into truck parts for my 7.3L. The diesel performance boom was in full swing. Growing up I had always had a magazine addiction, in 2005 a new one showed up on the stands. It was probably the largest single influencer to my diesel addiction. That magazine was Diesel Power. The original diesel magazine, Turbo Diesel Register (TDR) had existed for a while, but Diesel Power (DP) was different. I read every DP issue cover-to-cover, several times. I can still remember some of the trucks that I drooled over then. Some of them are…

OEM NEWS 2020 FORD CHASSIS CABS: BEST-IN-CLASS CAPABILITY Ford is wasting no time promoting the ’20 cab-and-chassis Super Duty’s best-in-class payload capacity of 12,750 pounds, its all-new 10-speed TorqShift transmission, or its use of the third generation 6.7L Power Stroke. With a 65.6-percent share of all Class 2-5 registrations, Ford boasts the number 1 commercial truck lineup in the U.S., and it plans to keep it that way. “We don’t operate in a vacuum in Ford commercial trucks, we talk to customers, dealers and upfitters who know how hard our trucks are worked,” said Nathan Oscarson, Ford’s commercial truck marketing manager. “That kind of real-world feedback helps us engineer the level of commercial trucks that the industry demands.” OEM NEWS RAM WINS POPULAR SCIENCE AWARD After reviewing thousands of products and innovations on its way…

Keith Burwinkel knew exactly what he had from the get-go. In 2010, at a time when the verdict was still out on the new 6.7L Cummins, he got a smoking deal on this ’07 5.9L—and he still owns it today. And thanks to growing up around oil burners at his father’s shop, JB Diesel Service, working for Cummins for the better part of a decade, and spending a fair amount of time on the dyno, Keith’s single rear wheel Ram 3500 is making some pretty serious power. But not only that, he’s doing it with a very simple setup—and surprisingly few dollars invested. LOW-MILE, PRACTICALLY-UNTOUCHED 5.9L Never having been apart, from oil pan to head gasket Keith’s 5.9L is just as it left the assembly line in Columbus. While the head has…
