ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – Eee Tee Digital Design has developed a digital fuel supplement system aimed at delivering that extra bit of juice when required.
The Digi-Boost system, which was showcased for the first time at Truxpo, provides a shot of propane for turbo-charged diesel engines to help provide a little extra power when climbing hills or laying down the rubber.
The company has developed two models, the Digi-Boost 2, providing torque increases of 200 ft.lbs and the Digi-Boost 4, which delivers 400 ft.lbs of extra torque.
The only stipulation is that the truck’s exhaust system must be capable of handling the extra strain.
The company’s slogan “Power where you want it, when you need it” refers to the fact the system is fully customizable.
It can be used for burnouts on high-performance drag racing trucks, or just for that little extra boost when climbing a long hill.
“Ever truck, every driver, every load needs a different setup,” says the company’s president, Ed Taylor.
“We can put it in in the bottom end, the top end, right across the spectrum,” says Taylor.
Meanwhile, the system can be set up so it doesn’t come on when not needed.
“On a flat road, the Digi-Boost system is not going to be activated,” says Taylor.
The system is available in Southern B.C. through Autogas Propane, and Taylor says it’s easy to install.
The unit is mounted under the hood, with the propane tank installed at the rear of the truck.
While it hasn’t been available for long, Taylor says the early test results have indicated the product works well.
“I’ve had my prototype on the road since last September,” says Taylor.
“I’ve made diligent attempts to blow it up without success.”
Test results have also indicated there’s an added benefit to running the system.
It also reduces soot levels by up to 50 per cent.
“The propane is slower burning so it burns off the soot,” says Taylor.
A new product is also on the way that will focus specifically on lowering soot levels.
