Diesel Power Challenge 2011 Competitor Interview: Scott Lindsey 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel Power: What changes are you making to the truck in order to prepare for the event? Scott Lindsey: “We are really trying to fine tune our current setup with injectors and waste-gate adjustments.” DP: What was your reaction when you got the call to compete? SL: “I have never been more excited in my life. It is truly a dream come true.” DP: What tires do you plan to use? SL: “I will run an all-terrain tire, either the current Nitto Dune Grappler, or possibly the Nitto Terra Grappler.” DP: What is your strategy going to be for each event? What’s the game plan? SL: “Being that I have dreamed of this since I picked up the first Diesel Power Magazine covering the DPC, I think my biggest issue will be to remain calm and just do what I love doing—and that’s put the pedal to the floor.” DP: What spare parts are you bringing? SL: “We will have everything we can possibly think of from a transmission to head gaskets.” DP: Who are your crewmembers? SL: “My father, my fiancé (when she gets out of school on the 4th,) and my mechanic.” DP: Any other thoughts? SL: “I can’t wait until I calm down and can actually sleep again. I'm still extremely nervous about this event.” VEHICLE Year: 2006 Model: Dodge Ram 2500 Body style: Crew Cab, Short Bed MODIFICATIONS Turbocharger(s): ATS Aurora 3000/8000 compounds Programmer, chip, or box: Smarty TNT and ATS Atomizer Injectors: 41 lpm Injection pump: Twin CP3s Lift pump: FASS Intercooler: ATS Sub Zero Air intake: ATS Arc-Flow Nitrous oxide: Nitrous Express NXD 4000 Water/methanol: Snow Performance Exhaust system: Straight w/8-inch stack Drive line: Rear locker and billet axles from Yukon Gear and Randy’s Ring and Pinion Estimated horsepower/torque: 850 hp, 1,550 lb-ft COMPETITION EXPERIENCE -Drag raced and dyno’d at any and every possible event I could make it too since the truck was new.
