How Do You Build A Tractor Pulling Engine For Trucks?
Tractor-pulling trucks must move huge amounts of weight from one place to another. Not only does the truck have to get it down the track, but it must do it while the load is continuously increased the further down the track you go. To pull more weight, a truck must be modified so it can handle the extreme forces that are needed to compete. Turning a stock diesel engine into a tractor-pulling monster takes engine modifications to increase torque and traction once the weight is added to the truck and the pulling begins. Remove the exhaust headers and replace them with turbo headers to redirect the exhaust into turbo fans that boost the air pressure inside the intake manifold of the engine. Installing twin turbos on a standard diesel truck engine can increase horsepower by 50 percent. This added power allows a truck to pull more weight with just the inclusion of this performance upgrade for tractor-pulling trucks.
