No kidding. I took the heat shield off of it and next to the 4 inch straight pipe it looked like one off a 460.

It's making power the whole time, it's just that the glow plugs are drawing so much for the first minute or two that it pulls the voltage down.

The lightbar Dirty Diesels sells is the Cree 20". That one looks just like it then again almost all lightbars look the same. I'm thinking about putting one of these under my bumper, how hard are they to install to the OBS lighting? Or do you just have it go to a switch in the cab?

Why would you have it go to the stock lights? Just sounds retarded to have on constantly going down the hwy blinding the crap out of people

Light bar looks good tho


The stock down-pipe is flat because they put an engine in a truck, where as the idi was designed around the platform to fit, the Powerstroke was shoe horned in, also why the stock SD down pipe is 3" and their upgrade is 3.5-4 inch, Kause the truck was designed around the engine
