Truck specs 1969 Chevy C10 with a bed from a 1995 Chevy step side. 2005 Duramax diesel engine In Brett's own words...My grandpa gave me the truck when I was 15 years old. My dad (Don) and I took the whole truck apart and sandblasted everything. We did all the body work that needed to be done and my dad painted it for me. That was 16 years ago and the truck still has the same paint job on it. We put a tune port fuel injected motor in the truck when I first got the truck. I spent the next ten years putting different sbc engines in it. The last gas engine I had in the truck was a supercharged fuel injected 383 stoker motor. I had always wanted to install a diesel in the truck because that's what I do for a living. I'm a diesel mechanic. So in 2009 I found a Workhorse bus that was a rolling chassis with the Duramax engine and Allison transmission in it. I bought the bus and started fitting everything into my truck. We got the truck running in 2010 and added a Danville Performance ( DP) VGT 68mm turbo and DP EfiLive tuning. The truck ran and drove great. I was able to run a 11.0 in the 1/4mile. Over the winter of 2011 I made a twin turbo system for the truck. Still with the stock engine I was able to run a 10.6 in the 1/4 mile. Later that year I ended up bending all 8 connecting rods. In 2012 I went to DP and we built a new motor using better connecting rod and pistons. I was able to run a best of 9.4 in the 1/4 mile. In 2013 we added a little more power to the engine and was able to run a 9.2. At the end of the season in 2013 we decided we wanted to start racing in the ProStreet class for the NHRDA. So we built a new motor and had HSP Diesel fab up a triple turbo kit for the truck. The engine has Wagler Competition cylinder heads, Bullseye Power turbochargers, Danville Performance built motor and a Rossler turbo 400 transmission with a Neal Chance Racing Converters torque converter. We only made it to a couple races this year but we qualified to race at the world finals for the NHRDA in Ennis TX. We ended up winning the World Finals and setting a new prostreet world record with a 8.810 @ 158mph. The best part of this truck is I still drive it on the street and it even has A/C.

How do Diesel Engines work ?
Diesel engines are the most versatile IC Engines. With help of animation working of Diesel engine is elaborately explained in this video. Here the basic construction of diesel engine, its working and mechanical design aspects are covered. Starting from working of single cylinder diesel engine, working of a four cylinder engine is logically explained here.
