December 2012 Feature My Truck

In the fall of 2011, I purchased my 2006 GMC Duramax from a local farmer. The truck spent part of the winter at Dirty Hooker Diesel in Harbor Beach, Mich. While at DHD, the turbo was upgraded to a custom built Danville Performance stage 2 turbo. A DHD EGR delete kit with high-flow bridge was also installed, plus the exhaust manifold and hot side pipe were upgraded. To maximize the flow of fuel I went with bigger injectors, FASS 150 pump and a modified CP3 pump. After all the upgrades were completed, the truck went to Danville Performance where Mark Broviak programmed it with EFILive and on the dyno it reached over 700hp. In the spring of 2012, I added a 4-inch Tough Country suspension lift to the truck and had a 5-inch custom exhaust made, complete with a 6-inch chrome stack. I then had Eric's Auto Body of Mt. Pleasant, Mich., paint the truck with House of Kolors Hot Pink Pearl. In June of 2012, I started pulling with the MTTP and the TTPA Michigan pulling clubs as well as competing at other non-club pulls. In the 12-week pulling season, I competed in 30 pulls and took first place at over half of those pulls.
