ISX lovers click HERE*

Thought some folks might appreciate these pics of my bud's '06 ISX that has just been de-EGRd by Jerry Martin Repair in Ephrata PA. His initial response is AWESOME! (duh). I'll let you all know how the mileage is after a few weeks of truckin'. He did say the fan runs WAY less than before. That is a PDI manifold and turbo,ceramic coated along with the exhaust piping.All EGR is removed and ECM reflashed . Not too shabby for a red motor,eh?

with new turbo it is around 8-9 thousand rang for the labor and the pdi parts. you can do a delete and leave the stoke turbo on for 2150 tuning and 425 for intake manifold.

Very intresting. If it was my truck I would be looking into that stuff as well. The thing that gets me is that emissions can be dodged fairly easy. Most states dont check and when you get a notice you just say the truck is not plated or in the shop. I did it for years with my hotrods. just dont go into CA! I think MPG will be the big gains and looks like it was simplified things on the whole engine.

Keep us posted

*waiting* *waiting* *waiting*

I'm gonna be disappointed if someone doesn't ask "But, what about the warranty?" (I realize an '06 is most likely out of warranty) I know there's a nervous ninny out there just itching to ask.

Even if the fuel mileage doesn't improve much (I can't imagine it wouldn't) just not having parts fail like VGT, EGR valves/coolers would pay back the 8k quick enough to justify doing it.

I almost want to buy a brand new truck just so I can have PDI *fix* it and drive it back to the dealer to show them. All I had done to my MXS Cat was a stage 1 flash and the salesman doesn't believe me it doesn't smoke or get hot. I would love to see his head pop off when you drive in with a 2012 ISX with all the junk stripped off with 700hp. They spend too much time with those dealer mechanics better known as "parts changers" who insist if Cat/Cummins don't do it, it can't be done!

Can't wait to hear your buddy's end results after the fun factor goes away.

How is the Jake since the upgrade? It looks like a clean install love the chrome valve cover. BTW what is that on the valve cover paint? Or a coating?

A good friend of mine just had his done(picked it up sat) and claims lowend power increased greatly. No loss of Jake power. He is a conservative driver and monitors mpg's closely. I will get his mpg's in a couple days and post them along with the price tag. I believe he paid around $7500. I'll get some accurate info to share
