Different Ways to Upgrade Your Duramax

Depending on what year of Duramax truck you have, you could have anywhere from 235 to 400 horsepower. Most people with diesel trucks look for between 600 and 700 horsepower. One option to get this is to drop your truck off at the shop for a while. However, you may want to keep this project in-house if you are on a budget. Adding boosting Duramax products will really give you the increased power you want. Here are several ways you can get a boost with these truck-specific parts.

Get a Bigger Exhaust Pipe

Think about adding a 5-inch exhaust pipe. If you don’t reach the highest horsepower capabilities, there are no drawbacks to having a larger pipe, and you will get the louder noise everyone wants. Just keep in mind that these can be pricy.

Increase Your Air Intake

As far as air intake goes, focus on lessening restrictions. Look for filters sealed inside boxes and draw cool air from the atmosphere rather than the engine bay.

Install the Right Tuner

Tuning is another way to unleash a lot of power. Add a tried and true tuner for the best results on your truck. With a factory engine and only the simplest upgrades, the right tuner can give you up to 150 extra horsepower. It can also increase your fuel efficiency and make in-town trips much more enjoyable.

Fix the Manifolds

The factory manifolds can be the most restrictive part of the exhaust system. They have small ports and harsh bends. If you want to upgrade your horsepower, don’t leave the factory one on there. Instead, look for something that can reduce exhaust drive pressure, increase your turbo spool up, and last longer.

Whether you are shooting for maximum horsepower or want a little boost, there are several things you can do to upgrade your Duramax truck. These are several of the best ways to get more power and can be installed right in your garage.
