    Edge

    I use the Edge juice with the attitude controller display. The display helps out by showing you some useful numbers like boost, EGT, Temp, etc, etc. Bully Dawg and Banks have similar products....

    if you are new to the turbo diesel platform ... you'll find that you almost need to re-learn how to accelerate. I'm sure by now you have realized that if you slam it to the floor, the response is a...

    Where they mount

    On the Silverados, they mount using the bump stop locations, just inside the spring pack. For lifted applications, a spacer is used (depending on how much lift). The spacer needs to be specific to...

    The majority of AirLift kits are vehicle specific (almost all of them). Springpack thickness and width, and most importantly ... how the spring pack is supposed to roll and flex when compressed. (The...

    I used a whipple twin screw for about 1 1/2 years. Never had any problems or complaints. I think the whipple and magna are pretty much on par with each other. On a truck, I'd only consider a "roots"...

    It really comes down to what you expect from your vehicle.

    Do you want a tow-rig that you can also drive around in?
    Do you want a daily driver that might tow once in a while?
