Dyno Day 2014: Big Utah Diesel Event

Industrial Injection has become a serious heavy hitter in the diesel performance market and their recent move into a massive shop just off the I-15 corridor shows that things keep getting better for the double II diesel crew. As one of the largest performance diesel shops in the country, they have many loyal fans and customers who make their way out for this annual event. Industrial Injection’s own in-house dyno, and Custom Auto’s portable SuperFlow chassis dyno, were able to run nearly 80 trucks across the rollers during this one-day power fest.

Jake Larsen of West Weber, Utah, had one of only a few 7.3L Power Strokes to spin the rollers at Dyno Day 2014. With the help of some hybrid injectors and an S300-based turbocharger the two-tone Ford put down a respectable 480 hp.

As in years past, the team at Industrial Injection had a massive turnout for the dyno competition. To help out again this year, they called in some outside help. Custom Auto of Idaho Falls, Idaho, brought down their portable SuperFlow dyno to help get through all the trucks before day’s end. While the Stock and Single Turbo trucks ran on Industrial in-house dyno, all competitors in the Compound class ran outside on the big load cell SuperFlow dyno.

A Cummins diesel with a Caterpillar sticker? Well, the stack came off of a Caterpillar dozer, so that makes it legal to run the decal, right?

Scott Performance Diesel of St. George, Utah, brought their purpose-built Duramax drag truck up to flex its muscle on the rollers in the Single Turbo class. This little regular cab made more than 600 hp and quite possibly had the loudest exhaust of the day.

The in-floor dyno at Industrial Injection was used for the Stock and Single Turbo classes and stayed busy all day long. More than 40 trucks were strapped down to be tested. This 2013 Ram owned by Jason Stott of Addicted Diesel managed to break the 500-hp mark with some simple tuning and a modified stock turbo. The truck looks to have a great combination of parts that work well on the street and dyno, as well as for towing when towing or for sled pull competitions.

Industrial Injection divided the competition trucks into four divisions for Dyno Day. These consist of Stock Turbo, Single Turbo, Twin Turbo and Exhibition class. With two dynos onsite, all Stock and Single Turbo trucks ran on the in-house Dynojet dyno and Twin Turbo rigs ran outside on Custom Auto’s load cell SuperFlow dyno. The highest horsepower numbers for the day were cranked out by the head engine builder at Industrial Injection, Shawn Bacas with his 2006 5.9L Cummins. His truck has an array of Industrial Injection goodies under the hood and, with just a single turbo and nitrous, laid down an earth-shattering 1,427 hp. Amazingly, the truck did it with a hurt engine that needed a new head gasket.

The Stock Turbo class was to be dominated by the 6.4L Power Stroke entries. This has been the same in the past and is thanks to their factory compound turbos and big gains that come from basic bolt-ons. The top spot went to Matthew Foster at 630 hp followed closely by Justin Tyler at 618 hp and Justin Child at 605 hp. The Single Turbo class was taken by Shawn Friedlin with an impressive 848-hp run. Second place went to a Duramax owned by Mike Mikstas at 721 hp, followed by Zach Fitzgerald (last year’s winner) in distant third at 625 hp. The Compound Turbo class was won by Scott Archibald as one of only a few to break the four-digit mark with 1,039 hp. The Exhibition Class is for those running power adders like nitrous or for Industrial Injection employees exempt from winning any prize money. Notables on the day were Chavis Fryer’s fuel-only Duramax at 1,426 hp and Steve Darnell’s Cummins-powered rat rod at 926 hp.

Steve Darnell of Welder Up out of Las Vegas, Nevada, brought his whole crew and quite a few of their custom rat rod creations to show off. This little gem was one of the originals that put his business on the map. Sporting an Industrial Injection-built 12V Cummins engine, compound turbos and some nitrous for good measure, the little car made more than 700 hp on fuel and 926 hp on spray. You can look for more on the Welder Up crew in their new TV series “Vegas Rat Rods” on the Discovery Channel.

Scott Humphrey, a sales technician at Alligator Performance, made the long journey down from Couer d’Alene, Idaho, for the big event. His 24V Cummins has a set of 64/480 compound turbos from Industrial Injection and managed to squeeze out 665 hp, not bad for a VP44 injection pump.

At the end of the day, we can say that everyone had fun, spectators and participants alike. The friendly atmosphere and all-around casual fun was enjoyed by all.

While it may not look like much more than your average work truck, this black dually Cummins was packing some major horsepower under the hood and put on quite the show for the crowd. Compound turbos and plenty of fuel are just what a tow rig needs… for hard work and weekend fun.

Owner of Industrial Injection “II,” Brady Williams, brought his new fourth-gen Mega Cab Cummins out for the day. This truck shows off just about every part found in their performance catalog. It sports compound turbos, modified CP3 injection system and bigger injectors. This rolling billboard can lay down rolling burnouts on demand.

Shawn Baca is the head engine builder at Industrial Injection and his “Silver Pearl” made the biggest horsepower on the day.

We found this at the No Limit Powder Coat booth on vendor’s alley. Their lifted Duramax was sporting monstrous neon green over the axle dump exhaust system. Here you can see the tip. This is something pretty unique but very fitting for the owner’s line of work.

The Ford Power Stroke crowd has made a strong comeback at dyno competitions over the past couple of years. This is thanks mostly to the 6.4L Power Stroke’s ability to put down nearly 600 hp with nothing more than a tuner. This big white dually was no exception, as it recorded a mid 500-hp dyno run for the books.
