Building an engine is an investment of not only money, but time. Hours upon hours go into a fully functioning and properly performing engine, along with the occasional blood, sweat and tears. The sacrifices aside, the finished product is almost always worth the work put in.
To some, part of that fulfilling feeling is documenting the process along the way. Tyler Wood is one of those builders. With hours of content posted to his YouTube channel, tons of Instagram posts, and a whopping 5,000 individual pictures of parts, components and build processes, he has more than a few ways to showoff his diesel build to anyone interested.
Wood started his career in the automotive world earlier than most, when he began racing dirt bikes at the ripe age of 4-years-old. Over the course of the next 14 years, he acquired a vast mechanical knowledge from repairing motorcycles and family vehicles with his father. When he was old enough to start driving, he was introduced to the diesel world via his first ever vehicle – an F-250 with a 6.0L Powerstroke engine. He now works as a mechanic at South East Diesel Supply, where he continues to hone his craft.
