With gas prices rising (always), alternative fuels look like an answer. Hybrids sound good, but what about the batteries? And fuel cells still seem to be pie-in-the-sky. Which leaves us with good old diesel. This book shows how to get the most out of the diesel engine, at a time when its fuel efficiency is almost as important as its massive torque. Although most diesel truck owners probably aren't planning to break any land speed records, advances in diesel technology, such as ultra-low-sulfur fuel, high-pressure common-rail fuel injection, electronic fuel management and variable geometry turbocharging, are bringing diesel engines into the performance arena. And this book is the ideal guide for making your diesel engine perform--adapting intake and exhaust, torque converters, engine electronics, turbochargers, and much more.
