Mod #1: Power Boost – DiabloSport Tuner
If power is good, more power is better…especially when it comes to pick-up trucks that tow heavy trailers.
In this first Episode of the TFLcar Project Pick-up we take a 10-year-old Chevy Diesel 2500 Heavy Duty Silverado Pick-up and we tune the engine using DiabloSport Trinity Programmer to increase the horsepower.
To test the results of the tuner we run a 0-60 MPH test to see if the pick-up is actually faster after the tune than before we tuned it.
The DiabloSport Trinity Programmer is provided by our friends at Autoanything.com.
Autoanything says that 99% of all products ship for free to anywhere in the continental US. Most power programmers (including the DiabloSport Trinity) have free overnight shipping.

A 10-year-old pickup can’t compete with a new truck in terms of power and torque…or can it? With the addition of a new performance exhaust you can make your old truck run and sound better.
In this episode of Project Pickup we continue on our quest to modify our ten-year-old diesel Chevy Silverado to more modern specs with a new Performance Exhaust. In this first part of this episode we test the truck to determine a baseline for 0-60 MPH performance as well as sound decibels with the current stock exhaust. We also open and unbox the brand new MBRP Performance Exhaust that we got from autoanything.com.
