Cat C15 Single Turbo Testimonials

"We sure have been impressed by the single turbo conversion kit. About 4 years ago, we had one of the twin turbos go out and needed some other work done on the truck and it just made sense at the time to pull the trigger and get the kit from Jim.

With the kit installed we were able to get rid of some of that excessive heat. Our Cat engine pulls a 9 axle trailer and the combination of the truck and trailer is 96,000 lbs empty and 240,000 loaded. The driver consistently sees 6 MPG when he is empty and with the single turbo kit installed the truck pulls a 240,000 load like it's a 100,000 load. We run the economy with power setting on the HDGT. Purchasing the kit was one of the best decisions we made and we tell everyone that single turbo set up is the way to go."


"I bought my single turbo kit and it sat for several weeks before I started installing it because I thought it was going to be a real bear to install. I was so pleased when I finally convinced myself to get started. I couldn’t believe how simple everything was to install. I have put together many 'kits' that I have purchased and always end up frustrated because pieces are missing or the instructions are unclear. This kit was a dream! The instructions were so well written that ANYONE could have followed them. I especially liked the large format pictures that I could see the details in.

I installed the conversion in March of 2011 and I track my mileage by quarters because the winter fuel really affects the mileage I get. For the 2nd and 3rd quarters I averaged 1.21 and 1.37 MPG increase respectively. That trend has continued throughout the year with the lowest quarter still up 1.05 MPG. Thanks for a great kit and a cure that was long overdue for those 'Twin Turbo Blues!'"

"I own an '04 Pete 379 powered by a Cat C15® 550 HP Acert engine. Initially I purchased an HDGT from J&S and picked up a 1/2 mile per gallon. Then about 2 years ago I purchased the single turbo conversion kit from J&S and picked up another 1/2 mile. I am one of those guys that did the conversion in steps. Before I started making any changes I was averaging 5.45 MPG and today I am averaging 6.45 MPG.

The difference it makes in the hills makes the truck a lot easier to drive. I don't have to shift down like I did before. It will still pull down in the hills, but not like it did before. After seeing these kind of results and putting over 200,000 miles on the truck with the single turbo kit, I can't understand why everyone doesn't install one of these single turbo kits from J&S. It took me less than a year to pay for it in fuel savings and I would install this kit again in a heart beat. I was happy to pull that cluster off the side of the block, but the performance and the fuel economy gains are the main reasons why I highly recommend the kit to anyone with an Acert engine."

"I have nothing but praise for this single turbo conversion kit. Since having the kit installed on my W900 with a Cat C15 I have put 230,000 miles on the truck.  Before installing the kit I was always excited when I averaged 5.5 MPG for the day.  Some days now I average into the high 7s for the day even when I am running 70 MPH and loaded.  Conservatively I am getting at least 6.5 to 6.7 MPG since installing the kit.  It has paid for itself multiple times over and well worth the money. I highly recommend the single turbo conversion kit from J&S"

"We have multiple trucks in our fleet, including a lot of trucks with the Cat® C13 and C15 engines. We installed one of the single turbo kits on one of our '07 379X Peterbilts with an Acert MXS 550HP C15 engine. The truck pulls a flat bed most of the time and is generally driving cross country with loads both ways. Since installing the conversion kit we have picked up a solid 1 MPG and the truck runs 20 degrees cooler than it did with the twins. We were so excited with the results that we purchased a couple of conversion kits for the C13 as well. As impressive as the results have been on the C15, we think we like the conversion kits for the C13 are even better."

"Just want to tip my hat to the guys at J&S for their customer service. I purchased one of their kits for my C-15 in a long nose Pete back in June 2017. We added something that wasn't typical in the kit and I also had an overhaul done on the engine at the same time as the kit was installed.

For the first few months, things were good but not great with the way the truck ran with the kit installed. It was running cooler, but it just didn't have the power that I was expecting. The guys from J&S and their contacts from other companies worked with me trying to see if we could get more power. We did get the truck running better but it still wasn't quite right.

What we found after going over the engine with a fine tooth comb was one of the new air to air pieces that we installed as part of the overhead was leaking air. It wasn't leaking air from the joints, but leaking though the entire air to air piece. The piece was porous, and not holding air like it was supposed to. Once we replaced that piece the truck is running like a beast.

I want to say thank you to J&S for continuing to work with me and to stand behind their product. At the end of the day the issue had nothing to do with their kit, but they kept working with me until we were able to figure that out. You don't see that kind of service every day. Thank you very much. You have a very satisfied customer.
