We just purchased a "new" 2000 Chieftain Diesel.
I like just about everything except the performance. It is very sluggish. I drove an indentical unit which had a little more pep.
The oil was changed along with the air filter by the dealer.
I am looking for opinions/advice from anyone who has upgraded the Cummins for more horsepower.
How many miles are on it?
On the Cummins engine in the Dodge truck you boost HP with a chip that pig tails in the engine control wiring, dont know about your Motor home though.
One thing is you have to up grade the exhaust system and watch oil temp and boost at the turbo also if jump the HP up alot with power chips.
You might just take it in and get the engine checked to see if the Turbo and engine performance parts are performing up to standards, may just need a little tweaking is all.
