OWNER SAYS: ”I just wanted to say thanks for the great mag­a­zine! I bought this truck in June 2016 with the in­jec­tors re­cently re­placed by new Bosch units. I love the Duramax LB7’s sound and fuel econ­omy. For me, it’s bet­ter than a new truck at a frac­tion of the cost. Fu­ture plans in­clude adding an in­ter­cooler, a BorgWarner S366 tur­bocharger, trac­tion bars, head gas­kets, ARP cylin­der-head studs, and a built trans­mis­sion.”
