> Harbour City Diesel (a Nanaimo off-road tuning company) has a pickup with
> a 5.9L Cummins diesel power. With street tires, turned low 12sec ETs
> (said he basically got it moving and then feathered wheelspin until it
> could hook up).
> Engine has twin sequential turbos, pumping out about 100PSI. Dyno's at
> close to 1500 ft/lb torque. Redlines around 4500rpm. Says limiting
> factor is fuel pump capacity. Owner is looking at running 10sec ETs when
> he gets the fueling right without any more major mods.
> BTW, ran a couple of passes low 12's, blew up a turbo on third pass.
> This truck looks like a stocker (except for a pair of pipes exiting behind
> the cab, ala big diesel). Put out a buncha smoke on startup.
> Jeez, gotta getme ona these!!!
