Special thanks to PTK for ordering their 18th kit for the last of their 18 C13s.
Very much appreciated by everyone at J&S.

Typical benefits of the single turbo conversion include:
  • Decrease in coolant temperatures of 10/12 degrees.
  • Decrease in oil temperatures of 12/14 degrees.
  • Decrease in under hood temperatures of 70 degrees.
  • Extended engine life.
  • 1 year warranty on all components except 2 year warranty on exhaust manifold.

The ECM Tuning is made simple by using either an HDGT or ECM Tuner.

The Conversion Kit includes either a Bully Dog HDGT or Bully Dog ECM Tuner, a ceramic coated exhaust manifold, a triple balanced turbo charger and all the small part components needed to do the conversion. Below are pictures of some examples of different trucks with the single turbo conversion.

Cat C11/C13 Single Turbo Testimonials

"Here is an order for our 2nd C11 Kit. We have a number of C11s in our fleet of dump trucks. We purchased a kit a few months ago for one of the C11s to test it out and we are saving 50 gallons of fuel every month with the kit installed. If the 2nd truck yields similar results our plan is to convert the entire fleet of C11s.

"We have 8 trucks with the C13 motor in our fleet. After doing a lot of research I convinced the boss to try one of these single turbo kits from J&S Sales. The results were impressive enough that we decided to convert two more trucks.

A couple of the trucks that have the C13 motor the boss was going to sell and remove from the fleet, but after calculating the fuel savings and the recent drop in the price of the kits, the boss said let's convert them all and so we just ordered 5 more kits.

The drivers are amazed that these are the same trucks with the same engine, because it is a night and day difference in the performance. We have been impressed with the results and from the customer service from J&S. We are extremely happy with the kits and the results."

"We have only had the kit installed a few weeks on our 379 Short Hood, but we have been really impressed with the results that we have seen right from the start. Just as everyone else has said the truck runs cooler and is more responsive. Will know more over time, but it looks like our fuel economy has jumped from 4.9 up to 6.5 MPG with the kit installed. And we appreciate the customer service that we have seen from J&S. We are glad that we made the upgrade."

"Wanted to give you some feedback on the single turbo kit. I have a Long Hood 379 with a C13 motor. Before doing the kit I had a Pittsburgh Power box on the truck, and it did give me an increase in horsepower, but honestly I probably lost a 1/10 in fuel economy with that set up. I had the single turbo conversion kit installed at the same time I did an overhaul in April 2017. I have ran 11,000 miles with the kit installed. The difference I have noticed between running it with the Pittsburgh Power box and the conversion is I can keep my foot into it a lot longer on a hard pull before it heats up. I have two pyros in the truck both a pre and post turbo pyro and I keep a pretty close eye on my temperatures. I start backing out at 1200 degrees before the turbo and 900 after.

With the kit installed I have increased my fuel economy a solid mile per gallon, going from 4.9 MPG to 5.9 MPG. I'll know more when I fill out my fuel reports. I pull a triple axle and I am at 90,000 lbs. all of the time, so this little C13 motor is getting a work out. I am running the power setting on the tuner and I know you only recommend that setting if there is a pyro on the truck. I may drop it down to the economy with power setting in the summer depending on how warm it runs.

Bottom line is everything is working really well and I wanted to say thank for a quality set up."

"The last four tanks of fuel have figured to 7.6, 7.6, 8.0, and 7.4 miles per gallon. Not bad for a truck that averaged 5.75 mpg before. Also the increase in drivability makes for a better day! Glad I made the investment."

"I have an '07 W900L with a Cat C13. I have different trailers that I pull with it, from a flat bed to a dump truck trailer to a lowboy. I had one of the J&S C13 single turbo conversion kits installed on the truck and wow what a difference it has made. The fuel economy jumped from 5.1-5.3 MPG up to 6.2-6.4 MPG. If I am hauling an over the road I have even seen up to 6.7-6.8 MPG on those loads. The oil and coolant temps have dropped 10 to 12 degrees and everything is running a lot better. I am more than happy with the kit and I can't understand why everyone doesn't do the conversion. The kits pay for themselves in short order and you have a much better performing truck to drive as well. Doing the conversion dropped 400 lbs off of the truck and that adds up when you are doing quarry work, like I do. I purchased the kit with the HDGT and the driving coach software. Having that information right in front of me has helped me drive more efficiently than I was before. I would highly recommend doing the conversion kits."

"I am really happy with the C-13 kits. We have two Freightliner Classics with the C13 engine that are used to pull grain hoppers. We tested one of the conversion kits on one of our Classics. We installed the recommended Economy with Power tune and we have picked up a minimum of 8/10s MPG and probably more. We were only getting 5 MPG out of the truck. With the kit installed we are getting 6.2 MPG. We are installing a second kit on our other C-13 and we have plans to install the kits on a couple other Acerts as well. They have done a fantastic job with these kits and the results are outstanding."

"We have a small fleet of Sterling 9500s with the Cat C13 Acert motors, plus our sister company also has a number of these same trucks as well. We tried one of the C13 kits on one of our trucks that was having some issues and liked the results. Since that time we have installed the single turbo kits on three other trucks in our fleet and our sister company has installed a kit on one of their trucks. All of the trucks run short haul as well as regional runs. With the kits installed the trucks have picked up a solid half mile in fuel economy. We plan on continuing to install the kits going forward and have been impressed with the results that we have been seeing."


"I am totally satisfied! I installed the C13 single turbo conversion kit on my '06 Kenworth T800 in June 2014. I pull a tanker hauling gasoline and diesel fuel. Before installing the conversion kit I could count on my truck making between 5.2 to 5.8 MPG on every fill-up like clockwork. Since installing the kit I am getting between 6.9 to 7.2 MPG plus the truck is putting more power to the ground than my old mechanical Cat ever did. Wow this kit is very impressive! I would highly recommend the C13 conversion kit."

"We are seeing between a half mile to 6 tenths improvement in fuel economy with the single turbo conversion kits. We have over a dozen of the C13 engines in T800 Kenworth trucks. So far we have converted 11 of them, with plans to convert all of them. We love the simplicity the kits offer and the cooler operating temps, plus the fact that the kits have been paying for themselves with fuel savings."


"My biggest regret with installing the C-13 single turbo kit on my Sterling 9500 tri-axle dump truck is that I didn't do it sooner. Driving over rough ground on a daily basis with those heavy twin turbos bolted to the side of the block meant I was constantly breaking parts. I have been looking for this kind of solution for a long time and have been very impressed with the kit since I installed it. I do a lot of short hauls and have picked up a solid ½ mile in fuel economy, not as much as the over the road drivers, but a nice benefit for sure. My biggest issue was I hated those heavy twins, because I knew as soon as I fixed the problem it was going to be right back, so finally I have a solution that works."
