C-15 550 Cat turbo whistle with the windows up
Here is the turbo whistle pulling a
yacht with my work truck 67 mph, I-90 heading towards Seattle, 2002 T800
Kenworth with a 550 C-15 Cat. This is with the windows rolled up!!!!!!
Mind you, I'm only about 65k with truck, trailer and yacht, can you imagine
190k with an excavator or dozer on!!!! OUCH!!!!
CAT C15 twin turbo
A quick look at the c15 in my truck. It has 475hp and 1850lb-ft. Runs good
but it gets bad fuel mileage. 4.7mpg.
Update: The engine now has about 160,000mi on it and its fuel mileage has
come up to 5.5mpg.

Diesel engines have been around for over 100 years. Everyone should know
how they work.
No $1000 special tools
No $700 service manual
No $400 a piece injectors
No $700 software
No $100 an hour labor rates
Although I have never done this before, I'm sure I could R&R all 6
injectors in a short day. Maybe another day if I had to R&R the
sleeves/cups, making my own special tooling. I intend to clean the carbon
deposits from the cups and inspect them and then install 6 quality
re-manufactured injectors for $160 each. You could pay $300 to $400 for
reman injectors if you wanted to (Plus Labor). Test and new o-rings can be
done for $20-$50 each (Plus Labor). I think the PO just stuck any old used
injector in there without even using new o-rings. Anyway, I want to know
exactly what I'm starting with. I removed all 6 injectors without a
problem. Install video coming soon. I'll go back in there later and adjust
the valves, That should be fun.
