Time to see how efficient our cooler design is! We would be pulling our test truck onto our Dynojet to collect the data needed to evaluate the intercooler fully. Check out the conditions of our testing procedure below!
Testing ConditionsVehicle: 2010 Dodge Ram 6.7L Cummins, Automatic Transmission, Performance Air Intake, Exhaust Modifications, Tune
Ambient Temperature: 70°F–76°F
Sensors: PLX Devices with Temperature sensors on both the intercooler inlet and outlet
Process: 6th-gear pulls from 1,800 rpm to 3,200 rpm, … Continue Reading ››
Welcome back! In our last segment we removed the factory intercooler so we could determine if this project would even be necessary. The good news is, all that work was not for nothing; our team found several aspects of the factory intercooler that could be improved. Check out a few more detailed images of the factory intercooler.
First, a peek at that interesting metal end tank we discussed in part 1 of this article.

Time to install our prototype radiator into a test vehicle to make sure that it fits perfectly. Luckily, we were able to check fitment on the same donor vehicle we used for our last round of testing. Once the truck rolled into the shop, we quickly installed our prototype radiator shown at the end of our last post. Check out a few shots taken during the installation process!

Our prototype intercooler is ready to go! Let’s take a quick peek at what our engineers designed!
First impressions, this cooler is massive compared to the factory unit. Our engineers weren’t kidding when they mentioned that the size increase would be … Continue Reading ››
The LML Duramax is the cleanest and most powerful Duramax thus far. The innovations made for this new model are quite substantial and are a direct result of serious advances in automotive technology. Unfortunately, stricter emissions standards of today result in the inclusion of a DPF (diesel particulate filter) system, which improves emissions yet hampers fuel mileage.
Luckily, not all the innovations for newer Durmax models are in place to provide cleaner air; several features of the new engine are in … Continue Reading ››
