Well let me start off by saying a little about myself. Diesel engines pay my bills. I'm a boat captain that uses two thousand horsepower 20 cylinder emd engines. I love the sheer power a Diesel engine is capable of and not to mention being able to run 24/7 for months straight. Right now I'm on my fourth diesel truck (06 cummins 2010 cummins 07.5 duramax and now my current 2011 cummins) I don't tow anything but I'm just hooked on all the benefits of Diesel engines (many of which the EPA negates) Well I just traded a ford raptor for what I have now. The raptor was amazing but clearly doesn't have a Diesel engine. But with the raptor there's still the whole gamut of upgrades that won't get the EPA snooping. My question is what are your opinions of the future of modifying Diesel engines. With the EPA killing the dpf deletes doesn't that basically kill off every other tuning option? Turbos, intakes, and fuel additions are futile if you can't get the exhaust out right? I'm just curious what's y'all's thoughts are. I'm hoping tuners are able to get around this but who knows.
