Engine overspeed shutdown control

-Advertisement-

WHY YOU WANT IT:
New from BD Diesel Performances is the EPAS (Electronic Positive Air Shutdown) for the Ford 6.7l engine. This unique engine overspeed shut down control works with the built-in, EOM Intake Air Control (IAC) to prevent engine run-on in environments rich with volatile airborne vapors.

The 6.7L Scorpion diesel engines come equipped with an EGR system that contains a Butterfly mixing valve. BD Engineers have designed a control program that uses this to safely shut your engine down if overspeeding occurs.

There are several advantages over older butterfly valve shutdown kits, including less installation time and labor costs. The EPAS can generally be installed in less than 1.5 hours, potentially saving up to three hours of installation labor costs. EPAS is factory harness compatible, with plug-and-play connections and a wiring harness.
Full compatibility with the factory ECM won’t set trouble codes: The unit also automatically resets after shut down. For leased trucks, the unit is easily removed for end of lease returns.

This new tire’s sidewall is reinforced with two-ply high-tensile body cord for sidewall strength, without increasing weight or rolling resistance. Wide outer tread voids and self-cleaning angled shoulder scallops provide better traction in mud and loose soil
The Extreme Country debuted in 21 sizes, with wheel diameters ranging from 15- to 20-inches.
