Lead Foot Diesel Performance

When you are searching for a Diesel Performance shop that you can trust, start with Lead Foot Diesel Performance. We have had the pleasure of meeting the whole Lead Foot Diesel crew down in Monroe, Georgia. Lead Foot Diesel Performance is owned by Johnathon “Sport” Brooklyn. Sport is always striving to make his customers happy. He lives and breathes horsepower so you can bet that he is going to do all that he can too help you get your truck where it needs to be.

Although Sport works about 16 hours a day to get his jobs done in a timely manner, he needs a supporting crew to maintain the level of quality work LFDP does. Chris Norris is an expert at Duramax repair and performance, and is one of the best diesel diagnostic technicians in the industry. There’s not an electrical issue he can’t figure out. When you are trusting someone to work on your truck, the best possible start to a repair is good diagnostics. Anyone can shot gun parts at a truck until they eventually accidentally fix it. Lead Foot Diesel Performance prefers to spend a little extra time on the diagnostics so only the parts really needing replaced, are the ones that get replaced, and hopefully upgraded if there is that option.

Brian Hall is the in house engine builder, you have never met a pickier person in your life, a trait greatly valued when it comes to engine building. Brian is the kind of guy that will tear an engine down, clean every single nut and bolt till it shines, and God forbid he sees an eyelash when its going back together. If he does, you can bet that engine is getting tore back down to be cleaned again. Come backs are unheard of when it comes to a full engine build due to Brian’s attention to detail.

Luke Willet is the Powerstroke man, whether you have a 6.4L powerstroke needing repairs or a 6.7L powerstroke you want to go sled pulling or drag racing with, Luke is the man to make it happen. His favorite thing of all is making a good ol 6.0L reliable and powerful, bring on the haters, cause if you get the chance to line up with a 6.0 that Luke has had his hands on, you are gonna have a bad time!

Kevin Skinner is the Cummins master mind around the shop, his modified 24 valve Cummins cranks out over 600 horse power and still tows four wheelers and Toyotas to the mud bogs and remains a reliable daily driver. Kevin likes working on the Cummins more than anything, he specializes in 6.7 Cummins head gasket repairs and performance. If you have a 6.7 that’s puking coolant and pressurizing the cooling system, Kevin can have it tore down in a matter of hours and back together before the weekend.

A team of custom fabricators make just about anything you can dream up a reality, whether you want a 6BT Cummins powered Jeep JK, or a 4BT cummins powered S10 show truck, the LFDP fab shop is up to the challenge. They do all of their own suspension design and fabricationin house, for your 8 second drag truck, to your full pull diesel 2.6 truck. They have built sled pulling trucks that have competed in the world finals in Texas and all over the Lucas Pulling League.

Vinny eventually made his way home to Lead Foot Diesel Performance in 2013. You can almost guarantee that if you call into LFDP, you’ll be talking to Vinny (If you don’t, it’s probably because he is already on the phone). He does everything in his power to educate his customers so they know exactly what their new upgrades can handle and what they can expect for gains.

Jordan McGee handles the phones for parts sales and overall customer service, with more than 6 years handling nothing but sales and service he greets customers with an enthusiastic attitude and a willingness to help.
