No-Crack Cummins Manifold

BD Diesel 2013-2018 Ram 6.7L Cab & Chassis Manifold

The 2013-2018 Ram 2500/3500 6.7L Cab and chassis model trucks are sold with a one-piece manifold design which is prone to cracking from thermal cycling. BD Diesel’s Ram 6.7L Cab & Chassis 2-piece exhaust manifolds are made from thick-walled high silicone ductile iron designed to resist thermal warping. Equally important, the piece design allows for the manifolds to expand and contract with thermal cycling without causing excess stress in the casting. Additionally, each manifold has been gasket matched and designed using 3D flow simulations to optimize flow from the engine to the turbocharger.

No Machining Cummins Intake

BD Diesel 2003-2007 DODGE 5.9L Competition Intake

When upgrading Cummins Turbo Diesel engines for competition use, the factory intake horn and grid heater plate become a flow restriction. The BD Competition Series Intake creates a large flow increase for high-performance competition Cummins engines. Unlike other intake systems, it removes the grid heater and grid plate restrictions without having to machine the factory cylinder head. It does this by removing the grid plate and attaching the intake directly to the cylinder head plenum. This allows the BD Competition Intake to create better flow distribution across the cylinder. Further, it reduces system pressure drop, without requiring any cylinder head machining.
