Gale cranks it up to 711 horsepower!

As a result of seeing the stock turbo reach its design limitations in the last episode it was replaced with a Precision 7675 turbo. Now, along with some new fueling components from Holley, extra fuel, and a new calibration the engine can reach up to 711 horsepower! See how it all happens, and what’s next in this episode!

Gale gets in the dyno cell, starts at 600 horsepower, and counts all the way up to 711! Because he’s checking all the data from the four iDash digital monitors, Gale can see exactly what might destroy the Duramax. Grab a straw and earplugs because it’s Slurpee time!
