We've all heard from forums and numerous outlets that deleting your DPF system is the way to go these days. What we never see backing these claims is data and tests.

High powered diesel trucks usually represent a means of getting your toys to the adventure.  Whether it’s towing an open trailer full of fourwheelers and SxS’s, a boat, or the toy hauler, the ideal experience involves the driver and passengers in climate controlled comfort pulling in high gear without feeling compelled to watch the gauges.  The Roxor represents a departure from this.  It’s open cab and 1940’s era suspension doesn’t just take you to the adventure. Driving it is the adventure.

Inspecting A 600+HP 4th Gen Cummins EGR

As technology and research continue to accelerate the quality of the EGR system, it's something that due to it's poor quality at early inception has faced continual backlash.


EGRs on the cummins have been around now for over 10 years. While the infancy stage of the EGR came with many hiccups and issues amongst all the Duramax, Cummins, and Power Stroke diesel trucks. It’s understandable to see why so many dislike these emissions systems, but this isn’t the mid-2000s anymore. These systems have progressed over the years and we wanted to see exactly just how well.

Emissions Equipped, Twin Turbo, 2015 LML Duramax Build

 

Now that the LML platform has been around for almost 10 years(how?!), it's no shock seeing these models sporting a slew of modifications. This truck we are showcasing, it is built for a specific type of driver. That's the thing with your truck. You build it to how you drive your truck. That's exactly how this LML's driver approached it. Now let's take a look at exactly what this build entails.



Jamie Kerley, the VP of Duramxtuner, picked up this 2015 LML with 39,000 miles on and has been behind the wheel of the truck since. This GMC Sierra 2500 HD came completely stock with the emissions still intact (stock exhaust, functioning EGR & DEF). From the exterior, this looks like just any LML. Looks can be deceiving though….

Balancing Performance, Heat, and Reliability

 

Hold a cigarette lighter up to your thumb for a split second, people around you will look in amazement at how your skin magically tolerates it.  Hold a lighter up to your thumb for 5 seconds and get the ice water ready.  During those 5 seconds you're quickly using up your thumb's heat buffer.  This parallels what's happening inside your engine when pulling up a grade at GVW or passing on the highway.  Your engine has well engineered heat transfer pathways to dissipate heat from the 'front lines' the same way the blood in your veins moves heat away from your skin in the cigarette lighter experiment.  In the performance world we're concerned with 2 elements of these pathways, the first is the amount of heat the system can hold and the second is how quickly the system can move heat from the source. 

 

"Your engine has well engineered heat transfer pathways to dissipate heat . . ."
