    what year is your diesel that is smoking. i was a diesel fuel injection mechanic for close to 15 yrs myself. and yes it is all in the tune they blow black smoke. and yes they can be fast as hell. it is that 90% of them are not. they just think they are.

    plenty of these guys out there.....also notice the lack of smoke after the initial launch. Properly tuned diesel and set up for power and not show. Mine smokes a little under wot but not too bad. At some point though I will be putting the dsp5 switch in it so I can run 5 different tunes because more than once I wish I had a smoke tune. Mainly for people that tailgate or loud ass Harleys that ride right beside me.

    Wow, been so long since I posted in this thread I didn't even have a diesel then, and now have one, lol. Hey Orion, ever make a decision about buying another?

    On the smoke deal, I have 5 custom tunes by Rob at ATP, none of them are smoke tunes. However they will blow smoke on the initial hit of the throttle, especially the race tune, but once spooled up and moving it runs pretty clean. According to Rob the race tune is good for low 14's and mid 90's at the track while still being safe for the stock trans. That's moving pretty good considering my truck scaled at exactly 7,000 lbs. empty. I have thought about participating at the diesel drags they have a couple times a year just for giggles and see what it actually does do.

    keeping my truck....put exhaust and rims/tires on it. Went with 4" dual exit straight pipe and toyo mt's again on american outlaw buckshot wheels. Just too many issues with the newer diesels right now. Not paying $50k for a truc and then spend time either sitting in a dealership or wrenching on it. I'll wait and let them get this emission horse shit under control. Even then GM went with that POS cp4.2 pump. You know it's a POS when people are tearing into a new truck to install older cp3's before the 4 eats itself.

    After hearing these horror stories on the new ones I agree, I think you made the right decision.

    4 inch dual straight pipes??? HOLY MOLY So what does that sound like?? HAHA

    it's not really that loud......throatier than the single 4" and a tad bit more drone but still about like a gas burner with duals on it. It splits right before the axle. It was a major pain in the ass to do by myself. Just a ton of pipe to wrangle under there. Happy with it in the end and I went stainless this time so hopefully the last time I have to do it on this truck.....although.....I was eyeballing a stainless 3" downpipe to throw on there.

    While we're on the truck subject.....take your screws out that hold your rear lights in place before they get too far gone and either replace them with new #8x3/4" screws or anti-sieze the shit out of those. Had a brake light go out this week and those screws were not coming out. I'd like to find the guy that said "just put a phillips head screw in it" and punch him in the mouth. Ended up having to drill them out and in that process managed to brake the plastic at the top of the light that the speed nut clips onto. Cut some plastic and super glued a piece in there and drilled it for the screw and bought new speed nuts. Went ahead and pulled the screws out of the other side and replaced them while I was at it and anti-siezed them.

    Did you point the exhaust out both side so you can get either lane?

    10-4 on the screws. I'll do that this weekend. Funny I just had one out about 3 weeks ago for a burnt bulb. I guess I got lucky it came right off.

    the exhaust exits at the corner of the bumper on either side so I have to play the angle but I can still get both lanes. I'll snap some pics of it when I get a chance. Wife drove it last week and I heard her take off (funny how heavy her damn foot is when she's in my vehicles) and it sounds pretty bad ass. Definitely a different sound from just the single 4".

    I think that's a "woman" thing in general. Back in high school I had a 75 cutlass. Pretty slow car but I had true duals on it with 12" glass packs. You could hear that thing from one side of town to the other. My mom took it to the store one time and after she pulled out of the driveway I stepped outside to listen. She dogged my damn car all the way to the store and back. I could hear those glass packs popping blocks away. When she got home I was giving her hell about it....she denied it with every fiber of her being.

    Hahaha, my mom was quite a lead foot herself. She used to burn rubber and race people all time in the 69 GTO my father bought new back then, the same one he still has. Boy do I have crazy stories about that, she had us on 2 wheels once, and not the back ones, lol. I thought we were going to die but the whole time she's yelling "I got it I got it" Wholy crap!!!! Thankfully she doesn't drive anymore, lol.

    My wife is a little more tame but she has told me a couple stories when she was driving the newer Camaro daily, and lately a couple stories with the truck. For the last 6 months she's been daily driving my 79 1 ton truck, right when I installed a brand new 454 in it with some tweaks, it runs decently for an old truck. She's the one that has put all the break in miles on it, lol. She's already told me about how she gave a couple of mustangs a hard time that had to speed up and merge, lol. For the last month she's been driving the duramax. She claims it's because diesel is only $1.50 a gallon but I tend to think it's because I left it in the hot street tune and she's flogging it

    I'm still working on the 69Z, motor is in the machine shop and I just tore all the front suspension apart. I can't wait to have that finished so I can get her out of my truck, lol. She's going to daily drive the Z, can't wait to hear what kind of trouble she'll get in with that. I'm setting it up to be a Pure Stock runner with tricks. I could send you a ton of pics but photobucket is such a pain in the ass. I'll PM you a couple of pics of what I've been into though.

    what about the GT? Still got it? $1.50 for diesel? Wish it was like that out here.....it had recently been as low as $1.74 but it's eased it's way up to $2.04 now. Hoping it goes back down in time for our vacations this year. Hell....I'd be happy with $2 a gallon. I used 140 gallons last year on our trip to VA Beach and that was around $1 to $1.50 cheaper a gallon than the year before. It's like having an extra $200 to spend on vacation. If it stays at $2 that'll be about $1 cheaper than last year. Adds up.

    Yup still got it. Restored it and now my son drives it daily to school. It's been a fantastic little car. I'm going to daily drive the nomad when I need to go somewhere, and my wife will be driving the Z daily. We've kind of diverted to driving classics anymore. The duramax is the newest thing we have and it will lead a life stashed in the garage unless it's needed.

    Right now it's needed until the Z is ready, lol, and the cheap diesel sure is a nice bonus. I'm like you, I'm hoping it stays cheap at least through summer because I'm planning one more trip to Ohio with it pulling the enclosed trailer. Last trip diesel averaged $4 a gallon across country and I spent just over $1200 in fuel alone. Can you imagine the savings if fuel is just $2 a gallon? Makes me anxious to get the trip started before prices go up
    Last trip pulling the 28 foot enclosed got me 11 mpg. I realized something just recently though, I didn't pump up the tires as per the manual recommends when towing. I left them around 60psi on both the truck and trailer (DUH!!). These tires are recommended 80psi cold when towing on both truck and trailer. So I experimented a few weeks ago and pumped the truck up to 68 front and 65 rear and MPG jumped 2 full numbers just while driving around empty. I'm going to try 70 on both truck and trailer while towing on this trip, maybe adds a little more stability too and see if it will improve on that 11mpg reading I got on the last trip.

    I run mine at 70 when towing and 50 when not. It rides like shit around town jacked up to 70....you feel every crack and bridge expansion joint. Technically you could go all the way to 80 and that's actually what is recommended. I just like to keep it a little below that.

    Yup 80 is recommended but like you, I want to keep it under that first and see how it goes. I thought 70 sounded like a good number to start for towing and see since 68/65 made such a bump in MPG for me.
    It rides a bit rougher but nothing I'm not used to. One thing I did notice when towing the enclosed with only 60 in the tires, when I maneuver that thing around in parking lots it really folds the tires over while turning when I have that thing loaded. More air pressure that I should have been running to begin with should cure that.
