I never said shitty tuned, just not as fine tuned. Anyone with diesel knowledge will tell you that. And actually the Dmax outran the Dodge, the Dodge just got him on the launch is why he won.so a shitty tuned 6 cylinder cummins just outran a finely tuned v8 duramax? Thats what im reading! As bad as you harp on people about swinging on cummins nuts, you sure dangle from them duramax balls pretty hard.
Right I thought it was amazing how well the DMax was running tune wise. It's only smoke was during staging while the turbo was probably spooling up.
What are the common DMax issues besides injectors and sometimes the dash cluster?
You have alot to learn grasshopper.
Second The smoke thing. Your reading to many Banks adds. The low smoke means simply that he is using a higher percentage of his fuel. To get to run that clean you AFR is going to be 18.5:1 or higher. That is not where peak power is made. When you tune on the dyno and tune for max power assuming that you simply do not run out of fuel volume you find that makes power happens at a AFR lower than what I mentioned above. It will be smokey. That is because your making use of all the meaningful O2. They can tune the Cumins to smoke less if they wanted but the dont because max power is what they want.I never said shitty tuned, just not as fine tuned.

Oh yeah and I have a Cummins too, ace :wink:
The Chevy does. Last I got a look at that Dodge it was a big single with lots of nitrous oxide. Things could have changed since last time I layed eyes on it.Those trucks both have twins.
I does not, but it does. It can simply mean your getting all the power out the air you have. No smoke means your getting all the power out of the fuel you have. Just depends on what your limitation is fuel or air.And sorry, I wasn't questioning you, its just that usually everyone thinks smoke means power :wink:
Speaking in genral? This thread is about two bad ass full bodied diesel trucks running side by side 6.0 passes in the final round. Nothing general about that!:supz: You have been on DP and have 4000 plus posts? OK why should I care? Post count and website membership does not give you credit.I was speaking generally. I know who Steve Cole is and have for years (I've actually done business with them), although I don't know the truck in question. I've been over on the DP for a loooonnnng time and still learn every day, 4k posts later. All of what you said makes plenty of sense, I just didn't think it was necessary to go that much into detail over someone thinking the Dodge was better b/c it smoked more (which turned out to not even be the case). I simply meant that big smoke does not mean big power. I've blown doors off of plenty of smokey trucks while mine lets off a light haze. I've had smokers too for the wow factor, but that's all it is messing around on the street. You are obviously a bit more educated on the topic, but that doesn't make me a complete dumbass..............
