Diesel power is the best power. When it comes to getting extra horsepower out of an engine, nothing beats a diesel power plant. In the above video, you’ll see Shawn Baca’s Dodge Ram just annihilate a wheel dyno. Black smoke pours out of the exhaust through the hood of the truck like it is an old school freight train barreling down the tracks.
The video was shot at the Edge Products facility in Ogden, Utah on September 10, 2016 where enthusiasts could bring their vehicles out and see how they stack up against each other. Baca’s Ram took the crown. Under the hood sits a highly modified 5.9L Cummins with lots of head work, FASS fuel pumps, Industrial Injection triple injector system and a triple turbo system.
Baca’s truck is set up with a full blown nitrous system. Without the nitrous, the truck pulled 2,113 horsepower on the dyno. When hitting the nitro button, the truck screamed with 2,571 horsepower. We’re talking well beyond big rig power.
The truck was recently completely built from scratch. After an accident that mangled the frame, the truck was rebuilt on a 2006 Ram frame and put back together, piece by piece. As an employee of Industrial Injectors, Baca had some well-qualified help to get the project done and make some serious grunt.
