In the last 11 years, the 6.6L Duramax engine has taken GM’s diesel program from last place—to world beating. And diesel enthusiasts (like you) deserve as much credit as General Motors does for turning this 300hp, Ohio-built, oil-burner into a fire-breather capable of making 400-1,500 hp.
Today, we share with you what will likely launch the next phase of Duramax performance—TTS Power System’s billet-steel Duramax pistons.
Working with Mahle, TTS Power Systems in Compton, California, has developed a new piston for Duramax engines that’s stronger than any other Duramax piston ever made. The steel’s strength permits these pistons to handle racing use beyond what any forged-aluminum piston can cope with. But unlike forged-aluminum pistons—you can also use these billet-steel pistons in street trucks too.
Have we teased you enough? If you’re going to be at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week, stop by the TTS booth in the Central Hall (booth number #23926) and talk with Steve Cole (www.ttspowersystems.com , (310) 669-8101).
And look for a full review of the technology in the February issue of Diesel Power.
