I rode in a freinds duramax that he hopped up and up thru 3rd gear when it shifted he had to let off as it would get sideways. He buried the speedo on the entrance ramp to the highway. Also he had the ability to turn the power up and down. He does the upgrades on diesels you can reach him at McClains diesel service in Eureka MO. I am sure he can answer any questions you have. His number is 636 938 1118 and his name is Jerry.

Damn, for a minute there I thought you had hooked up a Duramax to one of those fossil fuel blenders

I've heard that motor is lighter than a similar big block gas engine as well.
