Acert Single Turbo Cat C15


"I have an '06 Freightliner Columbia with a Cat Acert 435 hp engine with a 10 speed transmission. I recently installed one of the J&S single turbo kits myself. The kit is very simple to install if you are mechanically inclined. I also purchased the optional ARP studs and stainless steel spacers for the exhaust manifold and would highly recommend them.

I debated quite a while on whether to purchase the kit or not, but I am glad that I finally did. When I first drove the truck I was impressed with the power gain. I pull a dry van and it is loaded heavy most of the time. Since I have installed the kit the only time I have downshifted was due to traffic, where before I was dropping down to 7th or 8th in order to pull a hill. I am very happy with the kit. Based on fuel receipts it is pretty easy to see that I am saving about a $100 per trip. The engine is running cooler, I have lots more torque and lots more pulling power and I am saving money at the fuel pump. What a great combination!"

"I pull a 53' dry van with a 2007 Pete 386. On March 30, 2012 I had a single turbo conversion kit installed on my Cat engine. The kit looks great with the ceramic manifold and the polished turbo. Immediately after the installation I noticed a lot more power and the engine runs a lot smoother. The engine is also running cooler than before as well. Before installing I averaged 5.99 MPG over the previous 116,419 miles. Since the installation I have driven 15,620 miles and I'm averaging 7.28 MPG. I drive about 2500 miles a week and this system is saving me $283 a week in fuel savings. I'm very happy with the kit."

"I am happy, happy, happy! I absolutely love the additional power, but the 1.1 MPG increase in fuel economy was the real reason that I bought the conversion kit. I got everything that Jim said I would and more in the bargain. The truck runs so much smoother too! I didn't realize how bad my mirrors were vibrating before, but I can now back up and actually see where I'm going!'

"I have a 2006 Peterbilt 379X with a 625HP C15. I pull heavy trailers including double drop stretch trailers that haul over-sized loads. I installed the single turbo conversion kit in May, 2014. I have never averaged over 6 MPG on any of the loads I have hauled since I got the truck and I was told that I would never see good fuel economy out of this truck with a 625 Cat. Since I installed the kit I had a lighter load where I average 8.2 MPG over the entire trip. I can safely say that I have picked up 1 MPG since installing the kit. I have put the truck on a dyno and it is putting 701 hp to the ground. I am tickled to death with the horsepower gains and everything else. I also have a 2005 550HP C15 that used to get better fuel economy than my 625, but no more. My next move is to install a single turbo conversion kit on that truck as well. I highly recommend the single turbo conversion kit."

"We haul rock on mostly short runs with our trucks. We installed one of the C15 single turbo conversion kits and the truck increased from 4.2 MPG to 5.2 MPG. Before we installed the conversion kit, the truck was scheduled to go into Cat because there were several oil leaks that we were having. However after we installed the kit the blow by was reduced so much that oil leaks disappeared and we canceled the appointment."

"I own a truck repair shop. I recently installed a C15 single turbo conversion kit that a customer had purchased and requested that we install it. Everything fit well together and the way that Jim had laid out the kit was perfect. Jim claims that the kits are custom to the make and model of the truck and they are. Another customer had purchased a competitor's product and they also requested that we install it. The contrast between the two kits was night and day. The hardware on the other kit didn't fit so I ended up fabricating a lot of the pieces to make them work and their manifold was junk. As I saw the differences between the two kits, I made contact with J&S to let them know that if they had other customers that were looking for someone to do the installation on their kits, we were definitely available. As an installer I highly recommend the single turbo conversion kits from J&S."

"We purchased the single turbo conversion kit for one of our C15s in a T800. Jim also recommended that we purchase the optional turbo blanket because of the extreme temperatures that we deal with. The kit worked as advertised and we have purchased and installed a second kit for another one of our T8s. We have been pleased with the kits."

Paul M

"In June, 2014 we installed a single turbo conversion kit on one of our C15s in a Freightliner Century. We have been impressed with the results as well as the fuel economy gains."
