Power loss with mods.

I seen on the tv, that the new 6.7 will have the new diesel standards on the motor. The motor will have a nitrogen filterts, and baffels to prohibit mods from being put on. I dont know if anyone has heard abou this but I thought I would through it out.

If they do loose power from mods I dont think the new truck/motor will sell like they thought it would.

Truck: 1990 Ford F-250 5.0 EFI, 4x4 , Longbed, 5 speed w/ Hurst shifter, K&N FIPK, Line-X Bed liner, Ford Racing Valve Covers, 2 1/2 in exhaust w/ 4 inch SS tips, A pillar pod filled with Autometer Pro Comp Ultra Lites , Custom switch box w/ 5 switch panel, and more to come

If they do loose power from mods I dont think the new truck/motor will sell like they thought it would.
I think even stock it will have more power than the current generation trucks, that would lose them a selling/ bragging point against the competition.
I would be willing to bet it will be close to or higher than the current Duramax's power levels.

But still the motor with only a bigger turbo or intercooler will cause the truck to loose what power it had before the mods, instead of raising the power level.

I still think it may come back to bite them in the @$$. Just my 2 cents

the turbo is going to be a VGT so it can be bigger and smaller than what we have now. it won't hurt performance but will probably allow more power before it has to be replaced(it does on the Powerstrokes). a bigger intercooler shouldn't hurt anything either

By what I read ANY MODS will cause a power loss. I dont know if it is the true of not but if it is I am buying a a 2nd or 3rd gen 5.9L and not the 6.7.

Countryboy read what scrappy said.


A Modded turbo to this engine would only mean better responce, thus lower emissions, and little more power and feel like alot more power. But like scrappy said, a VGT turbo is better than most twin turbo set ups anyways. You can mod a engine and still keep it in the emissions threshhold. Just because it's not belching out black smoke doesn't mean it ain't gonna make power.

Like what was stated before, "Where there is a will, there's a way." They tried to make it hard to mod semi trucks by putting some kind of lock on the computers and if you didn't have the code you couldn't change anything, well they came out with a zap-it kit that takes care of it. There is no way that they will be able to prohibit mods. And how will the mods decrease power? I guess I just don't understand.
