Killing a Duramax: Part 14

The “Killing a Duramax” series makes its triumphant return with part 14! Gale’s been busy with the design of the new L5P cam as he tries the get the most horsepower while cranking out new ideas. Gale collaborated with Comp Cams in the development of this new high-performance and explains how he analyzes each step in the 4-stroke process of a diesel. Gale reveals why “squish” and “swirl” are so important to the proper diesel combustion. Gale also explains other important factors like valve timing, duration, overlap and goes over the details on why he prefers a stock piston over one with reliefs. This is definitively the best information you’ll ever get about diesel combustion outside of engineering school!
