This is another nice thing about the Diesel ease of adding ALOT of torque thru simple handheld programmers. Most simply increse the fueling and boost threshold mapping in the ECU. Try adding 80 ft lbs of torque to a gas motor without turning a single wrench it will never happen. Youd need to do heads and cam swap in addtion to exhuast and intake manifold on a gas motor and then youd be lucky. Literally plug the handheld into the OBD port it reflashes the ECU in minutes and you have another wheelbarrow load of torque added to a Cummins motor.
