30 Exciting Products  for Every Diesel Enthusiast

It’s fairly often that you’ll see some new-fangled “Diesel Buyer’s Guide” floating around, but this time we wanted to do something a little different. We reached out to a number of parts suppliers and asked what was flying off their shelves–the stuff that people were actually buying. The idea is that if other enthusiasts are buying it, you might need it too! Not surprisingly, we received a mix of replies and the product spectrum more or less ran the gambit. Most of the pieces we were told were moving could be classified as “replacement upgrades;” these parts that are stock–only better. Upgraded transmission parts, filters, turbos, and fuel systems were all at the top of the list, with items like complete transmissions also being included, as folks are finally getting the time to undertake such projects. So without further ado, let’s look at what’s the market is talking about!

Industrial Injection

6.7L Cummins CP4 to CP3 Conversion Kit

001Industrial-Injection-CP3-Conversion

The Industrial Injection 6.7L Cummins CP4 to CP3 conversion kit is a great way to increase the reliability and performance of the fuel system in your 2019+ 6.7L Cummins. There’s no tuning needed, our CP3 Conversion Kit is a direct replacement for the factory CP4 and will not cause check engine lights. No need to spend extra money on custom tuning or programmers, our kit works with the factory tuning. It’s also emissions compliant! Our CP3 Conversion Kit has been designed to be used with all of the factory emissions equipment.  Your truck will run as if it was from the factory. The CP3 fuel pump is proven to have longevity and to be reliable in performance applications and the CP4 has known failure issues that cannot be remedied. These issues, if they occur, can cause damage to other major fuel system components. To help increase rail pressure when fueling to higher rpms we have also designed these pumps with our industry leading 10mm stroker shaft.

The Thunder 330 can support over 600hp and is the best all-round performance turbo on the market.

“Keeping the 48RE Alive and Well”

Goerend Billet 48RE Pump gears

003pump-gear

With Chrysler Reman pumps no longer available and full transmission cores becoming harder to find. When other aftermarket pump gear options did not meet our quality and tolerance standards, we partnered with Boundary Racing Pumps. They’re experts in their field, and designed a 48RE pump gear set that not only hold the tight clearances needed to maintain consistent pressures, but also flow up to 15% more volume than stock gears. Boundary Tough-Goerend tested-48RE pump gears come in serial numbered, double heat-treated chromoly steel that will not wear like powdered-metal process gears.

Deep Capacity Cast Aluminum L5P Oil Pan

011_114053000_PPE-Oil-Pan_L5P

During regular oil changes, the stock GM pan retains over half a quart of the dirtiest, heaviest part of the oil which settles to the bottom of the valley of the stock pan. This old oil is trapped in the valley of the stock pan and never drains out. It immediately contaminates your fresh oil. PPE solves that filthy problem with a flat, angled bottom, designed for more complete drainage. The PPE pan’s higher volume holds an additional two quarts of oil. Your engine’s fluid capacity is increased, as well as its thermal stamina, which creates a longer service life. Engine temperatures are further reduced because the PPE L5P Oil Pan is constructed of thick, cast aluminum alloy, designed with internal ribs that add strength and rigidity.

Bar and Plate Transmission Coolers

013_124064000-124063000-PPE-Bar-and-Plate-Trans-Coolers

Excess heat is the #1 killer of transmissions. For individuals who tow, race or simply run their diesel hard, proper cooling of your transmission fluid is one of the most important things that you can do to increase the life of your transmission. When the mainline pressure is increased with upgrades such as a high-performance transmission kit, your transmission generates additional heat. A PPE Performance Transmission Cooler is critical in such situations. PPE’s Performance Transmission Cooler is a direct bolt-on replacement part that lowers the fluid temperatures up to an additional 20 to 30 degrees over the stock unit and comes with a lifetime warranty.

Water Pump Kit Covers and Seals

024_10541_media_01

Have a failed or leaking water pump in your 2001 to 2005 GM Duramax Silverado or Sierra? Look no further! This Merchant Automotive kit has the seals, gaskets, flywheel, and cover you need to get the job done right. This pump has the impeller and drive gear TIG welded to the shaft for increased durability, as well as to avoid problems associated with gear slippage and impeller walk. The seal between the housing and gasket is pre-installed, and the bolts are torqued. It’s best practice to replace the harmonic balancer bolt when reassembling. This bolt is torque to yield and should only be used once.

2017-2019 6.7L Ford Trans Cooler Kit

032_4216

This cooler was tested for thousands of miles, both heavily loaded and unloaded, driving at highway speeds and in stop-and-go traffic. Long gone are the 210°F+ (unloaded) and 240°F+ (loaded) temps. Hammering on the truck while pulling an 18,000-lb, 48-ft triple axle race trailer across the Arizona desert in August, the highest temperature we could manage was 220°F…and the temperature dropped noticeably as soon as we quit abusing the truck! Simply put, the temperature drops are fantastic! This kit retains the OEM cooler, adding this liquid to air heat exchanger after the liquid to liquid unit. The cooler adds approximately 1-1.5 quarts of fluid capacity to the system. Installation will take the average DIY-er 3-6 hours, depending on experience.
