16 n Performance & Hotrod Business n April 2015 Diesel Twin Clutch System Centerforce, Prescott, Arizona, introduces its 1,700 foot- pounds-rated Diesel Twin Clutch for 2005.5-'13 Cummins- equipped Dodge Ram trucks. Designed to eliminate common compromises such as stiff pedal feel, rough engagement and annoying noise, the Diesel Twin system features two sprung hub discs with a patented floater design that uses spring-loaded bushings to absorb typical "floater rattle." The floater is drilled and slotted like a brake rotor to dissipate heat—a configuration that helps retain stock-like drivability. Diesel Cetane Boost VP Racing Fuels, San Antonio, introduces Cetanium cetane concentrate, the latest addition to its line of Madditive performance chemicals. Cetanium, which will increase cetane up to 10 numbers for off-road racing diesel applications, is packaged in 32-ounce containers. It cleans injectors and pumps, prevents sludge and deposits, and replaces lost lubrication for increased horsepower and fuel mileage, reduced smoking and greater protection, including for biodiesel applications. Each container treats up to 10 gallons. F-150 EcoBoost Intake Systems Volant Performance, Berea, Ohio, presents two new Closed Box Performance Air Intake System options for 2012-'14 Ford F-150 pickups equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, including the new F-150 Tremor. The intake systems feature a unique closed box design that protects the intake from high engine compartment temperatures characteristic of turbocharged engines. A cooler, denser air charge decreases turbo lag, delivers better fuel economy and enhances towing capacity. Two options are available. High-Idle Kits BD Diesel Performance, Abbotsford, British Columbia, presents its High-Idle Kit to warm up engines faster on cold mornings. Quick and easy to install, the High-Idle switch mounts on the dashboard. Newer-model trucks use a plug-in module with advanced electronic controls along with a rotating switch for adjustable high- idle speeds from 900 to 2,100 rpm. Early model years utilize a toggle or rotary switch that wire-taps under the dash to select different rpm ranges. The kits work with remote starters, PTOs and extended idling applications. Pitman & Idler Arms Rare Parts Inc., Stockton, California, presents its Extreme Duty Pitman and Idler Arms for 2001-'10 Chevrolet/GMC 2500 and 3500 trucks. The oversized pitman arm has a full ball stud to prevent binding and is heat-treated. The forged idler arm has a reverse pin to prevent center link roll. Dodge Ram Motor Mount Kit PROTHANE, Costa Mesa, California, offers Motor Mount replacements for 1994-'02 Dodge Ram 3.9- and 5.2-liter gas and 5.9-liter Cummins diesel engines. The specially formulated, high- strength polyurethane replacements are designed to absorb the high torque of the Cummins power plant, and are impervious to oil and grease. They install in stock mounts with no modification required.
