Diesel Performance Podcast $30K Budget Build Episode

Posted by Danny Voss on Oct 14, 2016 5:09:00 PM


The Diesel Performance Podcast sponsored by Calibrated Power Solutions has been a hit!  We currently have over 70 episodes and counting.  Our $15k Budget Build was such a hit, we wanted to do a $30k and possibly frame out a higher priced build show in the future.  Thank you for listening!  


On this particular episode we had Paul Wilson as our Host, Nick Priengnitz pricing out  a Duramax, Tim Slater of Centurion Fleet Services Inc representing a Ford and myself (Danny Voss) showcasing a Cummins.


At the end of the day, all three of us maxed out the bottom ends of our motors.  

1.) Nick speced out an LBZ and it took him to 750rwhp with a 10mm cp3, 60% over injectors a Stealth 67.7 with a built trans.  This put him at a reliable horsepower number that will last for 2 seasons in the competition world typically.  

2.) Tim Slater is a Ford specialist and brought a lot of great content to the table on his 2003 6.0 Powerstroke he picked for the segment.  He started with a transmission build which we all did to harness the power of maxing out the stock bottom ends of these motors.  Tim spent $7950 bucks on just the transmission alone and the build takes off from there.

3.) I had the pleasure of putting together an 06 Cummins.  The truck was priced out to make 948 rwhp and to be under $30,000.
