For a few brief seconds, you won't have oil pressure if you didn't pre fill the filter. If you have a true mechanical oil pressure gauge you would see this. Even then, like someone else said, there...

DPF is the part that requires regens on a diesel. That burns the soot out of the filter and gas engines don't have them.

EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) comes on both gas and diesel engines. My...

I own a diesel and I find it hard to recommend one unless its more of a want thing then a need. The biggest drawback in my opinion being the cost difference in fuel. Its been more than $1 a gallon...

BlackRam Hemi, I can't help but keep comparing your truck to my Challenger. My Challenger is a 2010, tuner, Corsa exhaust, catch can and CAI. My best in the 1/8 is 8.82 at around 82 mph. The last...

Yes, its very common for header to throw a code, long tubes being much more likely to. There is a way to move the O2 sensor to help correct this issue.

My gut reaction is the odometer is correct, but I can't tell you why. I am a land surveyor and use very expensive GPS equipment, I'm talking anywhere from $20,000 to $40,000 for a complete setup. ...

I agree, look at the stuff in the column. I agree also, make sure there is a ground strap hooked up to the engine, sometimes there is more than one of them.

Thanks for the photos too!

Your kidding right? To get a car in the 11's takes a pretty serious effort. Hitting 10's with nothing but drag radials is pretty impressive. Go to the drag strip and watch some time. Cars running...

Kind of a last desperate attempt, take the hot lead off the starter. Take one side of a jumper cable and hook it to the hot side of a known good battery and hook that to the starter. Your not...

You really don't have to plug a Cummins in to start it, its just better. Mine always starts but it takes a long time to warm up and give you any heat. Plugging it in helps it warm up quicker and...

My Challenger with minor mods does low 5's and a high 4 now and then to 60 mph. This is a 5.7 hemi so I'm sure a Hellcat is doing better than that.

If you didn't live where it cold, I'd say the Cummins is a viable option but as others have said, long idling isn't great. I also think if you do the math, the improvedc mileage won't pay off for...

As far as I know the 47re was designed to go behind the Cummins. Don't know the exact years but about 1995 to 2003. It's possible someone swapped one in your truck but it would be a difficult and...

It should spin fairly easy but there is more stuff spinning on the front of a 4wd. Could be a brake dragging if it doesn't feel right or a beating.

Mine isn't a dually but I think it's pretty poor off road. As already been said, too nose heavy. In the snow it's not bad.

I had mine stuck in the mud once and it took a back hoe to get ot out.

Tough call, that's not a lot of miles for a diesel but it depends. If it lasts 600,000 miles, its a good deal, if you have major problems, not a good deal.

You always read on the Cummins forums...

Very good time but I'd take those times with a grain of salt, I assume they use GPS for the distances, speed and such, which could be off a little bit. On the other hand, your times could be better...
