05 Dmax: More torque than your TPI



2005 Sierra 2500HD, LLY duramax and A1000 allison 5 speed automatic trans.

So far it has a AFE turbo mouthpiece, MBRP downpipe, MBRP 5" turbo back exhaust, EGR blocked, and of course what hipster diesel fanboi is without a crummy 120hp/200tq tune.

Need to install a set of tie rod sleeves soon, and then see how she does versus the scooby doo mobile. Last big mod on the truck will be more fuel filters through a air dog/FASS etc system. Right now the factory WIF filter was removed to allow the use of a CAT filter, 20 buck CAT filter that flows, and filters better than the 80 buck OEM filter FTW. Hopefully also install a bigger trans cooler soon, and maybe do coolant flush/thermostats.

Hopefully have it at the track maybe this fall if I save up the 4-5k to cover when the trans blows up. Until then, 0-60mph runs and embarrassing fancy car drivers.

VGT turbo, garret from Izuzu factory. Makes interesting hair dryer noises at idle when it does self check or whatever

This is bert.


I need a camera on teh back of the truck to get pics of people trying to get pics of ole bert, its quite funny to watch.

Even if he tripled his rate, still would be zero.

If I race it, will drop down to the 90hp/160tq tune, safe for Allison. But enough to make FFB cry after a 7k lb truck out 60fts him.
