Whoa there buddy, you have a 12V. You can't put any sort of electronic boxes on a 12V. The good news is a lot of your power mods are very cheap, or free.

i didn't actually see if anyone offered a programmer for it but now that you say that it makes sense considering it is such a mechanical engine. oh well you can get alot of power just from adjusting a couple things.

i know with gas trucks (idk if this applies to diesel) you want to let it breathe. get an intake to allow more air in (more fuel), an exhaust to get that air out, and a tuner to literally re-tune the engine

...i think i got that right, correct me if im wrong...
