The 2.8L LWN Duramax motor is the little brother to the almighty 6.6L Duramax that was introduced back in 2001. As we all know the Duramax platform has been an extremely well-designed motor that has produced industry leading results since 2001. The 2.8L LWN Duramax brings an all new customer base to the diesel pickup market with its lightweight surroundings known as the Chevy Colorado & GMC Canyon. The 2.8L LWN Duramax motor produces 181 HP & 369 TQ from the factory, however it’s plagued with the unfortunate factory limitations that don’t allow the truck to really shine above the rest.

At PPEI we were able to optimize the overall experience of the 2.8L LWN Duramax by putting our magic touch too this motor. We were able to eliminate the low-end dead pedal and bring the truck to life by creating a custom calibration specific to how we at PPEI prefer our trucks to perform. The new and improved PPEI tuned 2.8L LWN Duramax has all the characteristics that this truck was missing out on from the factory. While still maintaining a smooth but progressive power curve the little 2.8L Duramax has earned an all new meaning that changes the whole perspective of calling this the little brother to the 6.6L Duramax.
