A BASICALLY-NEW, 2007 RAM 3500—WITH 1,058 HP

Keith Burwinkel knew exactly what he had from the get-go. In 2010, at a time when the verdict was still out on the new 6.7L Cummins, he got a smoking deal on this ’07 5.9L—and he still owns it today. And thanks to growing up around oil burners at his father’s shop, JB Diesel Service, working for Cummins for the better part of a decade, and spending a fair amount of time on the dyno, Keith’s single rear wheel Ram 3500 is making some pretty serious power. But not only that, he’s doing it with a very simple setup—and surprisingly few dollars invested.


Never having been apart, from oil pan to head gasket Keith’s 5.9L is just as it left the assembly line in Columbus. While the head has never been removed, ARP2000 head studs out of a friend’s engine were threaded in one at a time. To handle high- er rpm and boost, Keith traded for a set of 110-pound Industrial Injection valve springs and installed them one cylinder at a time, along with trading for a set of Hamilton Cams’ extreme duty pushrods. Keith also bartered for a Hamilton 181/210 cam, which helps bring his big single turbo to life sooner.
