Competing with a 6.0L Powerstroke engine under the hood may seem like a disadvantage, but Jesse Warren and his Warren Diesel Injection team compete at the highest level taking on all competition with the most powerful 6.0L Powerstroke out there. Warren started diesel drag racing and sled pulling in 2009 and then entered the Diesel Power Challenge in 2015, finishing in 3rd place overall. He wanted to play with the big boys so he stepped up to the Ultimate Callout Challenge in 2016 and 2017. He was the highest finishing Ford Powerstroke truck each year with a 6th place overall finish in 2016 and a 5th place overall finish in 2017.
Warren’s Crew Cab 2006 Ford F-350 is powered by a 6.0L block that houses a factory crank swinging, a set of Wagler Competition Products Billet rods and custom Diamond Pistons through the cylinder bores. While building the engine, the WDI crew custom ported a set of 6.0L cylinder heads to cap off the Powerstroke engine. They then added a set of 9mm 760cc injectors along with a custom high pressure oil system to deliver plenty of fuel to the engine. They also custom built a compound turbo setup with a Bullseye NLX 475 and Wimmer 4.4 HX82 to give the engine enough air to make a lot of power. The engine has delivered over 1,600 HP on fuel only and is backed by a Firepunk built 48RE Dodge transmission with a CO2 actuated ratchet shifter.
At Warren’s 3rd UCC competition in 2018, he and his team finished in 11th place overall with a total of 2,062.46 points. In the dyno portion of the competition he reached a max of 1,652 HP and 2,667.9 foot pounds of torque placing him in 6th. On the ¼ mile drag strip, he placed 15th with a time of 9.569 seconds. He then made a hook of 259.9 feet in the sled pulling portion of the competition placing him in 12th. We can’t wait to see what Warren and his team bring to the competition next year at our 4th annual UCC May 3rd-5th 2019!
The Warren Diesel Injection crew consists of guys from WDI as well as other shops that specialize in 6.0L Powerstroke performance. They banded together to push the performance of the 6.0L to help counter the bad rep that the engine has developed over the years. The WDI team is backed by the Warren Diesel Injection shop and has also received support and sponsorship from Colt Cams, Diamond Pistons, Firepunk Diesel, Vibrant Performance, Wagler Competition Products and Wimmer Fuel Injection to help compete with one of the baddest Ford’s on the planet.
