My dad's Silverado duramax diesel is so damn fun to drive, it feels way different than a car because you're high, and it has upwards of 750 ft lbs of torque!! It's incredibly fast, but he has absolutely no upgrades except for a performance chip, which is essentially just "unlokcing" the power the engine already has, Chevy limits it to 310 horses stock, with a chip my dad can get 470.

He has a friend with a Dodge turbo Diesel that did some work on the fuel ports, he dialated them or something to make it squirt more gas into every cylinder. I've never heard of that kind of upgrade before but with that and minor breathing mods, and raising the psi on his turbo a bit he put his truck into the 11's he regularly smokes all kinds of mustangs, fbods, and even a corvette once.

I'd love to see that in a car, but it's not easy, apparently only the "tough as nails" diesel engines can survive that kind of torture, and it cuts their lifespan in half. Otherwise it could last for over 300k miles.

But yeah, my dads a truck nut so he tells me all that kinda crap all day
