Talking 23 MPG AT 80MPH!!!

Thanks to the folks over at Elite Diesel Engineering (EDE) my truck is now running cooler, faster, and more efficient than ever, running from Pueblo Colorado to Denver I averaged 23MPG and averaged speeds between 75-80 MPH. I got the truck back from EDE and with in the first 200 miles the solenoid on the turbo failed, they sent a mechanic to my house 50 miles away to fix it! This truck rips when I want it to and saves money on fuel when I want it to, I even took 9000 pounds down the highway and had no problem holding 75MPH, EGTS rarely got over 1000F going over mountain passes….. So HAPPY!

Work they did

VGT-SR turbo
STUDS
EGR delete
Cooling lines
Stage one injectors
CUSTOM Tunes
