    That duramax/allison combo sure put the smack down on the Ford and Dodge at first, then again it is a Chevy. ;)

    Does anyone know much about those first gen dodges? They sound really mean, even better in real life.

    This is a perfect video of something I've been wondering...
    http://video.thedieselgarage.com/category/Burnouts/2/81dd38b2-6b49-4bb1-ab85-4b35496167fb.htm

    When guys in the diesel's do a burnout they rack up the rpm's first and the dark exhaust comes out, what exactly are they doing? Holding the brake and easing into the throttle? Brakes w/ truck in neutral then slam it into gear? Or maybe are they holding the emergency brake and turing their tuners up before taking the emergency brake off? I was just wondering.

    Just regular power braking. He is throttling up against the brakes and once the boost begins to build it easily overcomes them and the tires start to spin. The black smoke is partially burnt fuel.

    Oh, cool. I wonder why I don't see it as much when they are going down the highway and they get into it. Maybe it dissipates rapidly enough so we don't see it.

    The old dodge with the stack coming out of the hood is awesome

    I thought so too. I need to head over to a dodge forum to figure out what the first gen's came with under the hood. Like I said there is one around my house and it sounds insane!

    The worst thing about the cummins engine is it is wrapped in a dodge:D

    I'm sure there are plenty of guys that have taken a Cummins and dropped it into a respectable platform like a Chevy. I've seen a newer Cummins put into a blazer but I don't think I have ever seen a first gen like the one above put in anything.

    Usually (especially with the DMax) you're not gonna see too much smoke unless there's a tune or some other performance mods on it. I've tried to see smoke outta mine even when towing and WOT and never have seen a puff.(stock)

    So do you think that the guys that have a chip or programmer will put out a little at WOT or will the computer control that? Of course I don't see why it would control it on the highway and not on the pulls/burnouts. Maybe it has a sensor for the drivetrain like some of the traction control setups on newer cars. Hmmm puzzling.

    It does it on a burn out cause the injectors are dumping fuel for a given RPM but as the boost comes it leans it out to a more stoimetric ? level so the sootyness goes away. Off idle on a burn out it is way rich then as the boost comes up (more air) it leans it back out. I just said the same thing twice 2 different ways sort of. You dont see it going down the highway cause the boost is already up a little therefore no turbo lag when you get on the throttle. Also new electronic injectors dont soot as much. More air then more fuel. Old mechanical is more fuel causes the engine to increase RPM therefore sucking more air.

    I'm really getting a kick out of these diesel trucks. Maybe my next rig should be a diesel. :)
    There are a few good looking 4X4 diesel trucks/blazers on ebay right now too.
