As some of you know, I have partnered with numerous companies in the last few months in order to build my truck for this November's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV. One of the major sponsors of the truck was John Cobb from Cobb's Diesel Performance out of Tennessee, John and his mechanic did an incredible job building the motor of the truck in just a little over a week.
The list of Mods they did are as follows:
Industrial Injection Compounds
AirDog II 165
Ported Fuel Rails
MBRP IC Pipe
ZEX Pro Street Nitrous Kit
Billet Torque Converter
Transmission built by Cobb's in house
Billet input shaft
AFE Stage II Intake
BD Blow Off Valve
Performance Machine & MFG EGR Delete with Wastegate
Performance Machine & MFG Head Gaskets
Custom CDP Intake Elbow
Custom Powdercoated engine
Custom Polished Components
Throughout the build of the truck, I talked to John numerous times a day, keeping me updated and providing pictures of how the truck was coming together. John called me nearly every night on his way home from the shop to fill me in on what happened to the truck that day and what the plans for the next day were. It was a great feeling.
In the week CDP had the truck, they also had a local body shop take care of a few imprefections in the body that are not something that belongs on a SEMA truck. This is just another way they exceeded my expectations and saved time later down the road since SEMA is only a few weeks away.
When I went to pick the truck up just over a week later, He took me for a ride in it and I was truly amazed. The truck is honestly unbelieveable and has incredible power and torque. I can NOT wait until we have custom tuning. The truck is over fueling, but still runs great.
The Transmission in it shifts better than any build transmission I have ever seen and is very stout, does a great job holding the power.
When I picked the truck up from CDP I drove it 1800 miles across the country to have the lift installed in Arizona. The truck drove absolutely perfect and did not have a problem at all. I also averaged great MPGs and loved the power the truck makes.
I am overly pleased with the way I was treated with CDP andI have every intention of going back for more mods when the wallet allows.
Here ares some pictures throughout the build! Enjoy!>
