In this episode Lake Speed Jr heads over to Bolivar, Tennessee to see the Diesel Doctor, Cass Choate of Choate Performance Engineering, to dive into Powerstroke diesels.
Cass takes us through the beginnings of the Powerstroke with the 7.3 in 1994 all the way through to today’s 6.4 versions. He talks about the strengths and weaknesses of each, and how to troubleshoot as well as eliminate problems by replacing components with better designed aftermarket parts.
Lake and Cass also get into the advantages of diesel over gasoline and why so many guys love a truck with an engine that gets them to work during the week, does a little hot-rodding on Friday nights, and pulls the horse trailer to their daughter’s barrel racing competition on the weekends.
