We all get there at one point, should I upgrade my turbocharger?  It's something us diesel owners come across.  Maybe your charger blew up or maybe you just want to help cool your truck's EGTs a bit more.  There are a ton of different reasons why we want to upgrade.  With that comes a ton of different variables that go into which turbo you SHOULD buy.  Let's take a look at three big things to consider. 

VVT Stealth 64-1

#1: How Do You Use Your Truck?

You've heard this one before, if you're new to the diesel world maybe you have not.  How do you use your truck?  Do you commute 20 miles to work and back daily?  Do you haul any toys?  Maybe you hotshot as a career, all these are some of the ways a driver uses his diesel truck.  A driver that tows a lot would best be suited for the Stealth 64, why?  It runs more efficiently at higher horsepower numbers while loaded.  The truck will sustain a heavy load for longer because the heat that the turbo is introducing is lower than a stock charger.  Lower piston temps, lower EGTs equals more time and a larger buffer before the truck is affected by the added heat.

What is "Cost Per Horsepower"?

Cost Per Horsepower is a simple way to display and measure the cost-effectiveness of automotive performance upgrades.

In practice, this term is probably more often used to prove someone has wasted money on a specific upgrade or the purchase of an entire vehicle.  For the purpose of this article, we are going to assume the vehicle in question is either a Duramax, Cummins, or Power Stroke diesel truck.

There is a more cost-effective way of pushing your tractor to the top of the line when it comes to power.

You want field time decreased and you want to use the least amount of fuel possible while in the field.  These two aspects save you two valuable items: time and money. You work hard trying to get the best yield out of your land, so why not expect your combine to do the same for you?  Tuning your equipment is the quickest, cheapest, and most efficient way of going about getting the most out of your tractor. It can up-rate your tractor for a fraction of the dealer price and bring you the top-end amount of MPH and power.  Let’s go ahead and examine what tuning can do for the equipment.

It's Time To Get The Most Out Of Your Cummins

[fa icon="calendar'] Feb 11, 2019 8:15:00 AM / by Justin Tyson posted in CME Cummins, Cummins Tuning

A simple tune can dramatically change the dynamic of your truck in many ways!


The Cummins has gone through so many adjustments to help benefit the truck with each new generation introduced.  We've seen convenience and comfort get pushed along too, it's all apart of getting the owner to love what they drive.  The thing truck owners love the most is how much more horsepower and torque get updated in addition to body styles and interior.  In the late 80's the 12 valve was pushing a mere 160 RWHP out of the factory.  Look at where we are at now, the CME (2013-2018) is now putting down between 350-370 RWHP depending on transmission.  That's a huge difference in the matter of a few decades.  This is amazing to see, but it doesn't mean that they've gotten all out of your truck.  As we've seen numerous times, there's always room for improvement and performance no matter which year Cummins you drive.  


Let's look at some of the benefits of tuning your 2010-2019 Cummins below:

2011 - 2016 LML Duramax 520 RWHP Tune Only!

520 RWHP TUNE ONLY LML DURAMAX:

The 2011 - 2016 LML Duramax came rated at 395 horsepower and 765 ft/lbs of torque.  That seemed like an amazing amount of power when this model was first released but these days it is dwarfed by the available power of brand new trucks.

Furthermore, that whopping 395 HP is a peak power rating, meaning that you probably won't produce that much power during normal operations.  In fact, many owners complain that the power delivery of the stock tune is too soft. This is why custom tuning is so important for the LML Duramax.  

Here are some of the things tuning your LML can help with:

  • Increased Peak Horse Power
  • Improved Shift Quality
  • LML Dead Pedal Resolution

Don't Delete Your Powerstroke's DPF!!!

[fa icon="calendar'] Nov 30, 2018 2:14:48 PM / by Justin Tyson posted in DPF ON, DPF Delete, Ford 6.7, Power Stroke

We've all heard from forums and numerous outlets that deleting your DPF system is the way to go these days. What we never seen backing these claims is data and tests. It's always hearsay and misnomers that seem to find it's way to fueling the debate on whether to delete or keep your emissions intact.  Well as you probably know, we like to take these tales and try to figure out for ourselves what is the truth behind what to do with the factory emissions.

The 6.7L Ford in its factory trim represents a significant improvement in technology over the previous generations of the Powerstroke.  Coupled with the 6R140 transmission, this power train a lot of offer in reliability, drive-ability and performance.  Over the past year, we at CPS have worked with our customers and in-house on our own test trucks to develop and test tuning for this platform.  After hundreds of revisions, we're happy to announce we have a product that significantly outperforms the factory 6.7L/6R140 calibration in power and drive-ability, while maintaining factory operation and service intervals of the emissions control system.

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

It's what every Duramax lover is talking about right now!

As you’re well aware the L5P Duramax is all diesel enthusiasts are talking about right now.  It’s not unwarranted though as tuning is slowly becoming more an actual thing rather than a hope.  Now that HP Tuners have unlocked the possibilities, Duramaxtuner is wanting to know more.  While getting there hands on the ECM and doing intense R&D.  It would be a good thing to discuss what exactly comes with the L5P. 

If you’ve been following the Duramax world, you know that these trucks change every few years.  The LML ran from 2011-2016 and gave way to this new truck, the L5P.  The new L5P comes stock with higher horsepower numbers than it’s predecessor, but what exactly is different with this Duramax?  Let’s take a look at three major components this truck brings to the table.
