“My 12 valve Cummins 1995 Dodge Diesel pick-up truck is currently the fastest street legal diesel in the world,” said Fletcher. I use K&N Oil Filter (HP-4003), and K&N's FIPK. I had excellent air flow because of the FIPK which allowed my huge diesel turbo to spool freely. This enabled my engine to perform at its maximum horse power to win the 2006 Nationals.”

Fletcher uses K&N’s 57- Series Fuel Injection Performance Kit 57-1525. At K&N Engineering, dynamometer test show a 9.17 horsepower increase @ 2560RPM for the 1995 Dodge Ram 5.9L.

“My best time in 2006 is 9.92 at 139 mph,” said Fletcher. “My record was 10.13 at 137mph in 2005.”
