Let’s have a real “down to earth” discussion. What we all see happening and your experiences. Yes we all know what has happened with the epa and emissions and the future for the diesel community. From all the podcasts, interviews, phones calls, YouTube videos, social media we have all seen or gotten a glimpse as the To direction The diesel industry is headed. Kinda a huge grey area still to be honest.
We can all agree we love diesels, hell its why we are all in this forum. But you look around and things are changing. But no one has really said really given us direction as to what to do next or what we can do. No im not gonna have the argument whether its against the law, emissions vs non emissions. This is not what this is about. It’s a passion about building our trucks.
I’d love to get into a another 4th gen, sencond gen swap it and so forth. Finding exhausts are slim to none, turbo kits are slowly disappearing, and hard parts too.custom tuning has been wiped out on the internet, yes they are prob a couple underground guys left. You see companies releasing emissions tuning and new “ drop in turbos” that are compliant. Okay, great but what about the tuning to make that thing run like it should, with this new so called turbo, and the injectors they are still selling, and other crap that you know would have to have “custom tuning”.I still see builds on social media, YouTube, shop trucks and even trucks that were at sema . And I’m like okay, how the hell are you doing this, who’s tuning the truck, where the hell are you finding the parts. Yes I know, I’ve heard the “ if you know where to looK” phrase since this all started. But hell, most guys Don’t know, and it’s leaves us kinda lost lol. Yes everyone is like hush hush. But really tho. What do y’all see is going to happen. Is the day of having fun, modifying your daily truck over and we strictly stuck with track trucks on trailers?
