Duramax Diesel Exhaust After-Treatment System

Weber State University - Advanced Vehicle Systems Lab. A brief description and summary of the diesel Exhaust after-treatment system of the 2011 - 2012 GM Duramax equipped trucks. This systems allows the engine power to be increased substantially (765 lb*ft) while meeting the EPA 2010 Tier-4 emissions standards for diesels. This truck has a Ultra-low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) certification. Higher compression ratios, higher turbo Boost pressures, and higher combustion temperatures can be used to increase engine power which also results in reduced particulate matter and higher NOx emissions. Most diesel truck engine manufacturers are using this system because with the addition of a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) injector in the Exhaust system with a Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system, the majority of the NOx emissions can be neutralized. These systems still use a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) which requires regeneration, but at less frequent intervals than with the 2007 EPA emissions standards. This is a great system, however, you must add diesel Exhaust fluid or the engine controller will eventually prevent you from driving. http://www.weber.edu/automotive This video was created and edited by John D.

Just pure diesel power! Just ignore the tire pressure light I have 35 inch toyo open country's and I'm runnin 35 psi. i tryed to get you guys a view of the full Exhaust under the truck but the ground was hotter than fuck in the middle of summer and didnt wanna burn the shit outa my hand. i will post another video if you'd like

Performance Diesel Exhaust on TruckU
Anyone who hauls anything with a stock turbo can run into high EGT's(Exhaust Gas Temperatures). Matt and Bruno show you how to get cooler airflow through the engine with Exhaust and Methanol Injection.

DEF Frustration!!!
Working on my buddy's 2011 Duramax with a DEF problem. He already installed a tuner voiding the warranty, so the dealer wouldn't cover it. I told him he needs to just delete all that garbage.
