I can only imagine what that sounds and feels like !

One thing I can add to those who have not got personal experience with these great engines. When they are set up correctly, they are one of the smoothest engines out there, By diesel standards they are vibration free ......

This is as close as I get to these great engines There is nothing cooler than a turbo feeding a blower

8-92V Silver spec

Why would you post a video saying "listen to this truck" and overlap it with shitty music?

It would be OK on an old Cadillac, but that is a waste of a good truck.

Open pipes with an occasional gunfire sounding backfire would be an added bonus. Just to make sure everyone looks as you pull up. But do be the gentleman and help the misses climb out while wearing a mink coat.
