How to Cheaply Add Horsepower with an ECM Flash

Friday, June 30, 2017

Electronic engines get a bad rap in the heavy duty diesel engine world due to the amount of issues that can go wrong with them.

You can do modifications to the engine by changing out the pistons, injectors, the camshaft or damper. Adding an updated turbo is also another way to increase HP. However, these modifications are expensive and may not work as required which we will discuss later in this article. ... read more »

OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts: Are They Really Better?

Thursday, September 8, 2016

In the automotive industry there are really two options when it comes replacement parts: OEM and Aftermarket Parts. We all know those guys that are die hard OEM people.

Expletives fly from their mouth at a rate of 1000 exploding suns as they go on and on about the horrible ordeal and cost them bookoo bucks. That’s all fine and well but what is the real truth? ... read more »
