14 n Performance & Hotrod Business n April 2015 DIESEL & TRUCK PERFORMANCE PRODUCT FOCUS: For many, the power and versatility of diesels and pickups make it their preferred performance proj- ect. Whether on- or off-road, towing, hauling or just cruising, diesel and gas pickups are a fun drive. Why not get in on the action with the latest diesel and truck performance products available to the aftermarket? Check out which ones might help your sales get up and go. Cummins Fuel Tank TITAN, Idaho Falls, Idaho, introduces an extra-large-capacity, mid-ship Replacement Fuel Tank for 2013-'15 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 crew-cab, long-bed diesel pickups. The new tank provides an increase of 27 gallons over the stock tank that holds 28 gallons, nearly doubling the distance that can be driven between fuel stops. The extra- heavy-duty, military-grade tank is manufactured with cross-linked polyethylene that resists rust and corrosion. Features include a low fuel trap design, galvanized steel mounting straps, rollover safety vent valves and more. Diesel Relief Tooling Goodson Tools & Supplies for Engine Builders, Winona, Minnesota, introduces Diesel Relief Tooling for high-performance diesel engines. Created for use with multi- angle seat cutting systems, the tooling was developed with Joe Mondello Racing Engines. The kit is designed to work with two- and four-valve 6.0- and 7.3-liter Ford, 12-valve, 5.9-liter Cummins and 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engines. Each kit includes a mounting fixture, offset pilot, indexing pin and a radius cutter. Power Stroke Up-Pipes Sinister Diesel, Roseville, California, presents its new Up-Pipes for 7.3-liter Ford Power Stroke applications that eliminate the slip joint in the cast merge piece—a common location for leaks from the factory. Sinister has also removed the bellows in favor of a stronger, longer-lasting double-slip flex joint for better performance and no cracking due to heat fatigue. The design allows the upper and lower sections of the up-pipes to flex and move with heat expansion while maintaining a 100-percent seal, with flexibility for different engine tolerances. Power Stroke Boot Kit Mishimoto, New Castle, Delaware, offers its Factory- Fit Boot Kit for 2008-'10 Ford 6.4-liter Power Stroke applications. The direct-fit silicone boot kit features DuraCore technology, a synthetic material that provides superior resistance to heat, pressure, fuel, and oil—effectively increasing the life of the boots by preventing leaks and blowouts. Also included are Mishimoto's Constant-Tension T-bolt Clamps for accurate and consistent holding power. Late-Model Diesel Dampers Fluidampr, Springville, New York., offers its Performance Diesel Dampers for late- model diesel trucks. The dampers are available for all popular late-model Chevy/ GM, Ford and Dodge/Ram diesels, protecting engines with the same crankshaft vibration-damping technology high-power diesel OEMs use for long-lasting durability. Recommended whenever performance upgrades are made for superior protection while achieving optimum performance across the entire rpm range, the dampers are maintenance-free, SFI 18.1-approved and made in the USA.
