PPE Duramax Project Complete
I'm not a certified mechanic but I managed to pull this duramax apart and put it back together. The good thing is everything works right! I am using PPE level 3 right now it really knocks you back in the seat. The shifts are really smooth and the truck seems less restrictive and more balanced. I have to be careful because my transmission is still stock.
Duramax Performance Upgrade-Phase 1-Removing Stock Parts HD
I got more parts to put on my duramax. The next day I will take the downpipe off, start removing the Exhaust manifold and replacing it with the BD. Then I will replace the fuel pressure regulator, delete the egr, replace the mouth piece, install new Intercooler pipes, install mbrp downpipe, hook up the gauges, and tune to ppe level 3.
Duramax Locking Differential
My truck can barely get traction backing up a small hill because of axle wrap. I wanted to see if my truck could move in this stuff in 2wd and 4wd if needed.

Duramax Cold Start
I got through replacing the fuel pressure regulator with a new one while it was 72 degrees. My duramax runs like it's supposed to. Now the winter weather rolled in it's to cold to work on my truck. I have some new shocks Bilstein 5100 that I need to install.
