My old ford escort turbo diesel engine gone poorly with a really bad struggling idle. Apart from this issue it ran fine. Plenty of power when driving it.
What caused this was trying to start it in winter with a frozen water pump. It didn't even turn 1 full revolution. It knocked out the timing, so i had to remove the head to check for bent valves of which there where 2 that i replaced and this is after the rebuild so something had happened to the fuel pump. I also stripped this down to inspect but didn't see anything wrong but after this start up test and subsequent replacement of the fuel pump it was obviously damaged somehow.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

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.

higher than normal rpm trying to break his record but look for this wild
truck next year to set a new record et!) Here's a pass from last year
