Default 2.8L Canyon Test Toy

image.jpgPulled the trigger on a 2.8L

So I impulsively decided to get one of these new mini Dmax's to start playing with. There aren't many in my part of Texas so it's time I brought one home. I decided on the Canyon just because they have a little more of a square look. I was in Wahington when the bug bit so I started my search. Turns out most or all of the Canyon diesels are SLT trim. Most were black leather but I wanted tan. Found one in Bozeman MT & got a fair deal. Borrowed a truck & trailer & went after it last weekend.

Hauled it back to the Seattle area, returned the truck I borrowed & drove it to Portland. I had a few trucks to tune there then it was off to Texas with the little guy. Almost home now. Drove it just over 2k miles so far.

Yes sir that's the plan. I may do a little tuning in it's current state but not very much. After the drive home my def level is down to 27% so that tells you how long it'll be functioning. I'm not buying that stuff...

Driving his truck with the twins is what got me interested. Once I knew how these trucks could run I was sold. Exhaust is coming off next week & I have a twin kit on order for it as well.

I test drove a new Canyon for 2 days and really liked it, but coming from the cummins I don't think it would tow the half ton race truck very well. who knows.

I'm sure it'll tow it just fine. Your half ton practically weighs as much as a car.

I know I would hate towing with it stock. I'm tuning on it a bit tonight & tomorrow I'll be hauling a 1000 gallon water tank with it. I'll get it close to 6000 pounds & see how it likes it. The transmissions seem to be holding up to power. Trans tuning will be very helpful. I'll turn up the line pressure a bit & monitor temp
