I am starting a new topic about this because the last one was deleted abruptly. I am the owner of the vehicle that was being discussed. Please keep this clean so it is not closed AGAIN. I had a built motor and compound turbo set up built by Spe for dpc. Once I got home with it I had an issue of a bellow blowing out on a up pipes. After taking it apart to try to fix the bellow, I discovered some of Spe's shortcuts in building this truck. I found where they had used a hammer to make room for the dual fuelers, and their welds was not up to par. But all of that is cosmetic. my main concern was that they did not clean up their welds on the inside of the pipe. As you will see in these pictures that have been posted that is not acceptable work. If they would've took an extra 20 minutes to clean up their work it wouldn't of had the possibility of weld slag going through a brand-new motor.
Cfd has helped me result some of these issues, they have made me a new set of up pipes and manifolds with a new wastegate set up to help with the back pressure issue that we had before. And you could tell a significant difference in the power, because that 63 mm could only flow so much.

It really sucks that I'm getting ready to do some more modifications to the vehicle, and not knowing if the motor is running 100% because somebody was not willing to take the time clean up after themselves. 20 minutes of work could have saved me thousands in the long run

The first thread you're referring to was closed for the simple reason that it was started by a sponsoring vendor, discussing a non member's truck, and the "hack job" as they put it done by another company that is not a sponsor here. It was wrong on several different levels...

But since you are the owner of the truck in question and you have obviously joined over here to tell your side of the story I have no problem in letting this thread stand. Your truck. Your experience. Your story.

While I have no doubt this one will get just as heated as the other dozen threads over the last several days, please everyone keep it civil. Stay on topic. Don't be baited. Stay on point. Make my life a little easier... :hehe:

You know what... Yes. Just to put that thought to bed I'd be glad to. BRB.

on edit: Don't know if it means much to any of you but it comes back to AT&T wireless, out of Missouri. There are about a dozen members that have posted from that mobile IP, several of them I know to be from Missouri. There is one other member with that registration IP address that I am not familiar with but I do not believe it to be associated with CFD. I have no idea where Matt Doyle is from, but the name is familiar from the DPC. That's what I got.

Another edit: Took this directly from Diesel Power's website from the DPC entry list. I BELIEVE THE OP IS THE REAL DEAL AND NOT CFD IN DISGUISE.

Thank you, glad to see they aren't making multiple accounts like on PSA and that we have an actual customer of theirs.

Matt glad to have you here. We're just all so fed up with the way CFD has been acting that were just taking precautions.


So, about your kit... Tell us more. Do you have any pictures of the turbo kit installed?
Have you ran it on a dyno to see if it indeed makes 1000hp?

Have you seen the latest reviews by regular people like you? Do you trust CFD to take care of you when something fails and you need warranty?

The proof is in the pictures. When my truck left Spe it was done. When I took it apart and found all the issues that it had it. I sent them an email and told them what a piss poor job they gone. I never asked them to fix it, because They didn't even try to attempt to fix any of the issues when he put it together. So why would they do it any differently the second time

Being that we aren't vendors here we have been biting our tongue at all of the previous posts referring to us but since Matt wants to address us, we will tell our story.

Matt's DPC truck was built to compete in the DPC & then be a street driven truck (but more on that later). We couldn't have asked for a better running truck.

The only issue we had in Denver was a blown boot (see current Diesel Power Magazine) which was quickly fixed.

Contrary to what was previously posted, we only had Matt's truck for 3 months (almost to the day).



The truck arrived to us in a non-running condition & was found to have a melted short block that affected the heads. The truck was built with all parts completely at cost with very little labor. We started tearing Matt's truck apart at the end of February & had the engine pulled on February 28 (yes it was quite some time later but we had customer's scheduled ahead & the truck arrived earlier than originally scheduled.



It was built in 1 month (while we waited on Matt to decide what he wanted to do with the engine- he was trying to get Crower to foot the bill on the long block) with no other trucks being built at all. We lost our A$$ on it. The truck received a new long block fully balanced rotating assembly with Carrillos, studs, valve springs, push rods, full afm porting and head machining for valves and springs. 1 new injector due to when the truck was built the first time with the Crower rods most likely assembled in a dirty environment (we suggested changing all 8 injectors due to dirt in the fuel system & he knew this but only wanted to do 1)so thats what we did. so we assembled with the larger nozzles. As well as a compound turbo set-up, dual fueler, ATS trans, battery relocation, Nitrous, Methanol, 4 link front control arms etc etc. Many of these items Matt received as a sponsorship compliments of Amy including Green Filters, Carillos, etc.





We went WAY out of our way for him. We picked him up at the airport on our dime, flew to Denver on our dime, stayed there for a week on our dime, & even bought him & his friends a $300 dinner! We even shut down our shop for those 3 weeks only working on Matt's truck because of the dead line to DPC & the shop was closed entirely while we were in Denver. Never once did we complain.

When the truck left SPE, Matt still owed a bill. One that he signed stating he'd pay a week after DPC. We extend that to 2 weeks to give him more time. We had no clue he had an issue with his truck until we contacted him NICELY & asked if he knew when he could at least make a payment & he said, "If you make me pay, I'll tell everyone your work sucks".

We contacted an attorney to deal with this issue because we refuse to let someone threaten us. Needless to say, Matt was forced to pay his bill & now he's mad.

We can't help it that his truck didn't like the increase in jet size. We had a 45 & 90 jet (we have ran this setup with no issues and no need to gate due to drive pressure staying in check) installed and didn't waste gate it because he was ONLY spraying at DPC he said. Well he went home, tore the truck apart (IDK why?) & put 2 125 jets in it in turn causing way too much drive pressure expanding the bellows. Needing to be wastegated at this point which was not in the original plans) The charge pipe was clearanced but not in the way that was pictured. Matt had a nonreputable shop perform work on his truck changing much of the setup and due to this shops reputation things are being presented not in our favor.

In retrospect, Matt's truck would have never left here due to the fact that he couldn't pay & Matt would have just had to tell DPC he financially couldn't make it. We overlooked that due to the circumstances. We also were never given a chance to make any bit of the situation correct because Matt owed us money.

Had we known Matt had an issue (even if it was one that he caused), we would have gladly helped him. SPE will always take care of issues with all of our work. If it's manufacturing defects we will 100% warranty it. Although for that to occur you must have obviously paid for the product.

Here's a few screen shots showing the timeline of the DPC build-























Less than 3 weeks before DPC, Matt wants a bigger turbocharger-







2 weeks before DPC






Matt's truck when it arrived-















Broken piston oil squirters due to Crower rods that DO NOT FIT!!!




Here's some photos to show Matt was running his truck hard & not using it as the daily driver he requested be built. Keep in mind, DPC ended on May 9-






Here are some examples to show we DO know what we are doing & CAN fabricate, weld, etc.

AFM Porting of Matts heads




Stage 2 Valve Springs with machining of the head to allow for the larger springs.







Finished truck with injectables-



SPE welding-











At any time, ANY of you are welcome to stop at the shop & see any of our work first hand, check out the race truck, watch turbo kits be assembled, etc. We are also more than happy to send any pictures you may request. We have NOTHING to hide!!
