SPE vs Confederate Diesel side by side review

CFD price 3199
SPE price 3000
CFD turbo options s363, s366 or efr which can all be purchased from any diesel supply house and we can provide replacement part number
SPE turbo options s363, s366 with SPE cut housings, these turbo's will have to be replaced by SPE if required
CFD exhaust includes headers and uppipes with 40% increased flow
SPE Uses new uppipes with the same restrictive factory manifolds
CFD kit has a new aluminum intake that replaces the factory intake
But the factory intake can still be used if the customer really wants too.
SPE just reuses the PLASTIC factory intake.
CFD has a custom pedestal and oil line kit.
SPE has a custom pedestal and oil line kit.
CFD kit has a custom 1/4 oil feed straight from the factory oil galley
SPE uses stock oil port off cam bearing which has been proven to be insufficient for an oil cooled turbo.
CFD has a lifetime piping warranty, 12 month turbo warranty, and 30 day money back guarantee.
SPE has a 90 day limited warranty.
CFD kit is in stock
SPE kit is 3 weeks away
Both kits can be installed with the factory emission system in place.

This comparison shows the added value you will get when buying a Confederate Diesel Turbo Upgrade.

We just want everyone to have all the facts when making a decision and see that when you buy our kit, you are getting allot more for a lot less money.


P.S. Thanks for posting about our kit on here.

Hey no problem Amy we have been waiting on this.
We were toying with the idea of leaving the stock manifold and stuff on Its secret squirrel stuff and some guys may like that.

You know you guys arent far from each other. Just have a day where you take 2 trucks side by side, same setups, and see what they do! Dyno and drag.

If they use the same turbo and same tuning, then the power output should be about the same I would think. It's the quality of the parts offered that makes the difference. One thing I worry about with the CFD kit is the custom exhaust manifolds leaking over time between the manifold and the head. How thick is the flange on the CFD kits?

Not the same turbo. Theirs is a box turbo. Ours isn't. Tuning is different too unless they are using ours?

Off-topic, CFD we saw your d-max break 2 tie rods pulling at the knob. Oops!

The flanges are 5/8" thick, they will not warp.
We offer a lifetime warranty on piping leaking, 12 month on the turbo, and 30 day money back guarantee on quality.

We have found that when using the factory manifolds the outlet that points at the firewall causes the up pipe to pull. The flex joints help, but our header alleviate the pull quite a bit. This is The main reason we went with headers.

Sorry Alan I didn't realize it was not the standard 63 or 66. The turbo in the picture is a 177283 open throat .88 a/r 63mm that comes right out of a box.
What upgrades do the turbo's have, billet cw?
Or are you using the cut John Deere tractor turbine?
I would like to include that in the comparison.
We off these features as well as upgrades on the turbo's, but a box turbo makes the 500 rwhp these factory fuel systems allow just fine.

Evan ripped his driveshaft apart when he won 2.6 at hammonds grove sat.
It was one of our customers pulling at the knob. Did they have a back glass sticker?
What were you guys doing at the knob, you don't even pull a truck do you?
