Duramax 6.6 ShootOut
I am happy to anounce our Duramax Shootout that will take place at the Smokin in the Smokies Event. Just prior to the the kickof test and tune night, we will be on David Dunbars Dyno Testing a LB7 with a Suncoast V tranny, Big Head Wastegate, and stock turbo. We will have most boxes and tuners made for this engine, and we will post our unbiased results afterward.

We will be looking for big power, and drivability. This shoot out will be conducted in the same manor as the 6.0 shootout to get the most fair results as possible. A special Thanks to FordT for giving us a spot to have the event, and to David Dunbar for spending time with us on this project! Also, a big thanks to all the vendors for helping supply product for us to test!

Also, thanks to CAP for letting us use his truck, and for helping to gather the tunes and information needed to complete this. This will go down Friday, so if you have time, we will see ya there.
