Ya big diesel fanatic, my grade 11 auto project was setting up my shop teachers 12v Cummins to run on veggie oil, was tones of fun!
Funny part is I’ve never owned a diesel… But I have a bunch of friends who do, and usually it’s a similar story, there fun but once you start going really fast, stuff starts breaking.
A friend of a friend is selling is 07 3500 ram, with the 5.9 and auto trans;
Obviously far from stock, twin turbo, with just a bunch of work done to it, running a conservative tune bringing it in around 650awhp and about 1000ftlb, built trans good to 1500hp, massive amounts of suspension work, basically it’s setup as a baja style truck, pretty gnarly doing 140+ km/h on service roads and soaking up like it’s no big deal, he’s got it up for sale for 55k cad. It’s definitely worth it, just I already have a “racecar” don’t really need a “racetruck” although would be awesome to pull RS around behind this thing.
Plus I will be using this as a daily and for 50k, I figured having a warranty would be nice! So I now have a 2016 canyon with the 2.8 duramax on its way. The motor over seas is showing great potential and I know they made some improvements for the North American market, so I’m excited!
