Dr. Performance Nitro Series Modules for Diesels: Up To 125 More HP
Jun 29, 2007
Dr. Performance developed the world's fastest diesel drag truck, an 8-second Cummins-powered Dakota that's driven by Charlie Stewart. For street-legal diesels, Dr. Performance releases its Nitro Series Modules.
The result of 12 years of R&D, these underhood modules are engineered to prioritize pulling performance without adversely affecting EGTs. Nitro Series Modules optimize combustion by raising the fuel pressure, creating a finer, better-atomized fuel plume that sprays deeper into the cylinder. Also, the modules alter the engine's timing duration, producing completer burn at lower cylinder temperatures. This returns cooler air to the turbo, particularly compared to modules that "over-fuel" by increasing injector pulse to create power -- but risk sending re-ignited flame through the exhaust valves. Further, over-fueling creates black smoke, can score cylinder walls and even melt pistons, not to mention creating back pressure that impedes turbo spool-up.
Nitro Series Modules are available for popular late-model Big Three light-duty diesels as well as select motorhomes and medium-duty GM trucks. Dr. Performance's representative peak dyno gains are 110 HP/220 LB-FT for the LBZ Duramax and 6.0L Powerstroke and 125/250 for the Cummins 600. Plug-in installation takes as little as five minutes.
