Default Diesel Power Challenge 2012

Well folks I decided it's time to get back out into the competition world. I haven't done much since TDP 2006 Pull off.

Last fall I submitted my entry to compete in the Diesel Power Challenge 2012 and I've been selected as a finalist. Now it's up to the readers to vote. In order to vote you will need to have the April issue of Diesel Power Magazine and fill out the ballot inside. No photcopies allowed.

Thanks in advance for your support.

I'm working on a new Facebook page and hope to post some details there soon. I haven't been too keen on the whole Facebook thing, but I'm beginning to think that there are a lot more of my contact base there than I originally thought.

Of course you have my vote. I get confused with the Facebook thing, must be showing my age or something.

Good Luck with the Challenge.

From the magazine:
John Kennedy Loyal, Wisconsin
Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
Driver Experience: Dyno, drag, tow, pull, wrench
Engine: 7.1L Duramax (1,200 hp and 1,500 lb-ft)
Turbos: Custom Maximized Performance race twins, BD Intercooler
Electronics: Kennedy Diesel race tune
Injection System: Kennedy Diesel twin lift pumps, Wicked CP3 mounted with MPI dual fueler kit, Kennedy race injectors
Injectables: Custom nitrous and water-methanol systems
Intake/Exhaust System: MPI intake and Kennedy Diesel 5-inch exhaust
Transmission: Allison 1000 built by Inglewood Transmission with a Sun Coast converter
Suspension: Stock
Tires: 285/75R16 BFGoodrich
Wheels: 16-inch Centerline
Differential: Front and rear lockers with 3.73 gears

"7.1L"??? Is this something to do with a different stroke?

I don't subscribe to the magazine (most mags don't have much about the 6.5 anymore), but I'll find it locally and buy the issue, just to vote!

The 7.1 refers to the billet stroker crank yes.

Well guys we're in. Thanks for voting!

Now I just need to make this darn thing shift. Getting frustrated and might actually have to ask for help. It just doesn't act the way that it should.
