Heavy-duty trucks are designed to be jack-of-all-trades-type machines. Although this is generally great for most drivers, some have different preferences. If you want to upgrade your heavy-duty truck so that it produces more torque or downgrade it so that it’s more fuel efficient, you’ve come to the right place. Our technicians here at IBEX Diesel Repair will work within your ECU and program your settings in order to produce the requested results. Do keep in mind that tuning is a give-and-take type process. To increase your power, you may lose fuel efficiency. To increase fuel efficiency, you may end up losing power.
Common Upgrades to Accompany Tuning
Turbochargers are commonly used to boost your engine’s performance capabilities. Turbochargers work by compressing the air that enters your engine, therefore allowing more air to enter your combustion chamber. To make this happen, your turbocharger uses exhaust fumes to spin its internal turbine. This turbine then compresses the air. The only downside to turbochargers is that they make your engine work harder, therefore lessening its lifespan.
Installing a cold-air intake is a great way to increase your heavy-duty engine’s power output. Factory cold-air intakes can restrict the airflow going into your engine, whereas a cold-air intake allows for not only more air but denser air to enter your engine. This particular modification allows for more throttle response and an increase in horsepower. Do keep in mind that this modification is likely to decrease your fuel efficiency.
