Industrial Injection’s annual Dyno Day brought out some heavy hitter from all across the West.

For their second year in a row Industrial Injection held their famous dyno event, bringing in some of the highest horsepower trucks in the western region. With some aggressive advertising and good old fashioned word-of-mouth, the folks at Industrial were able to make this event even bigger and better than the last. With two dynos on site, they were able to test over 50 trucks, most of which were in the mid 400 horsepower plus range, which lends credence to the belief the diesel aftermarket industry is still alive and strong in the central Utah area.

Industrial Injection had the classes divided up to 4 divisions, Stock Turbo, Single Turbo, Twin Turbo, and Open. With two dynos on hand, they were able to run all Stock and Single Turbo trucks on their in-house DynoJet while All of the Twin Turbo and Open Class trucks were run on Custom Auto’s (Idaho Falls, ID) portable SuperFlow load cell dyno. Running a complete class on one specific dyno offered the best competition for all the competitors. It also allowed for Industrial to make the event go quicker and more smooth;ly, keeping the tires and smoke rolling for most of the day. An on-site BBQ and vendor booths helped keep the spectators and competitors busy between the dyno action as well.

With 29 Cummins powered trucks entered, it’s safe to say the Utah area is Dodge country. But that’s no reason to count out the Ford and GM owners that attended. All four of the Power Stroke equipped trucks were over the 500hp mark and the Duramax crowd was able to take home bragging rights for the day thanks to Dmitri Millard’s 2001 LB7  setting a new diesel horsepower record with a neck-snapping 1702 rear-wheel horsepower. Thanks to a rather large staged turbo setup, massive injectors and a couple stages of nitrous, Millard took home the top spot by more than 500hp over the next closest competitor. Other GM notables were Custom Auto’s 1165hp run from their lifted 2008 LMM and Kenneth Donkersgoeds stock turbo LBZ power plant putting down 530hp.

Leading the Cummins crowd was Johnny Curtis in his 2005 twin turbo nitrous assisted Common Rail at 1109hp. Robert Evans took highest fuel only Cummins numbers with an impressive 1052hp and Jared Bristol joined the 1000hp fuel only Cummins club with his 2005 Triple Turbo Common Rail. Highest single turbo Dodge numbers went to Bullydogs latest race truck project at 902hp and the best 12V Cummins horsepower numbers came from Kortney Neifeneeger with an 852hp showing.

The local Ford crowd came to prove they could compete with the big dogs as well, taking both first and second place in the stock turbo class were two 6.4L power Stroke trucks. Highest going to Cody Malan putting down 587hp and Zac Gibson coming in close behind at 555hp. The 1999 F250 owned by Jacob White brought the most Ford power to the show with a remarkable 1018hp out of his single turboed nitrous injected 7.3L Power Stroke, making it one of few Power Strokes in the country able to crest the 4-digit horsepower mark.

Overall the folks at Industrial Injection put on one heck of an event, bringing out some of the strongest running trucks in the country to compete. For more information on the event or about Industrial Injections products, visit
