LOL at those guys. I have a few C15's...an 871 and 2 new X15 Performance Series in my fleet. I'm here to tell you, CAT *WAS* the big dog...20 years ago. Times have changed. They're still good engines for their time, but there's better out there now. Stock for stock none of my CAT's can run with my X-15's. My 871 with the @m*m^2 in it flat out runs - while consistently getting .5 - .75 mpg better fuel economy.

Care for and drive those red motors right and they'll take care of you!

Pretty sad and some of them were comical even without the grammatical errors. You do what's right for you and YOUR business. Just sell the SDP to some cat-tard for a stupid amount of money and know you did the right thing.

The X15 performance has throttle response( except for the lag in the program) and instant torque like nothing else i've ever driven. It's quite impressive.

Indeed. They’re a pleasure to drive.

but that is also why they will all have a shortened engine life too.

Bolted in nicely, onto the wiring harness...

It's insane the amount of extra crap that's on the Cat harness.

I got a little bit of gantry crane/shop envy. Even if I had the crane, I barely have enough room to open my hood, let alone work around it while it's up.

Oh that makes 2 of us, this isnt my shop. I've got it at my mechanics. They are doing most of the work on this, I'm just tinkering with the stuff they arent sure of.
