18 n Performance & Hotrod Business n April 2015 Diesel Fuel Additive Royal Purple, Porter, Texas, introduces Max-Tane high-performance fuel system treatment designed specifically for diesel- powered cars and all types of light-, medium- and heavy-duty diesel trucks. A six-in-one diesel fuel treatment, Max-Tane is engineered to work as a total fuel system cleaner, cetane booster, fuel stabilizer, fuel pump lubricator, cold flow improver and demulsifier. Independent tests have shown that one treatment of Max-Tane can increase the cetane number by up to eight points and boost fuel economy by up to 10 percent. Ford Oil Cooler Relocation Kit Bullet Proof Diesel, Mesa, Arizona, presents its Ford 6.0-liter VK688 Oil Cooler Relocation Kit. Designed to retain the factory oil filter and oil cooler function, the system offers a remote mount for the often-problematic OEM liquid-on-liquid oil cooler for easier service. It keeps the factory oil filter as well as the OEM-specified oil filter bypass and oil cooler bypass mechanisms, with an all-billet oil transfer block that permanently removes the OEM oil cooler from the stock location. The oil cooler mounting bracket is Baja tough. Diesel Long-Arm System BDS Suspension, Coldwater, Michigan, introduces complete 8-inch, 4-link conversion Long Arm Suspension Systems for 2013-'14 Dodge Ram 3500 4WD diesel trucks. The new systems are designed to offer premium on-road comfort and superior off-road capability. The 8-inch system converts the factory radius arm suspension to a true 4-link for improved stability, wheel travel, and handling across all terrains. The 4-link design limits caster change to less than 1-degree of change throughout wheel travel for better handling, steering control and driveability. Ram Valve Cover Gaskets Magnum Gaskets by MSI, Bannockburn, Illinois, presents its Dodge Ram Diesel Valve Cover Gaskets with integrated fuel injector connectors, including 2006-'11 Dodge Ram 5.9- and 6.7-liter trucks. The USA-made, precision-molded MaxDry SS gaskets can be used during fuel injection service, as they not only must seal the valve cover, but also become a critical link in the fuel injector electrical connections. Magnum's valve cover gaskets for Ford 7.3-liter diesels also feature precision-molded designs with integral electrical connectors. F-100 Brakes Baer Brakes, Phoenix, introduces a complete Brake Solution for 1968-'72 Ford F-100 applications. The new 14-inch Pro+ bolt-on brake system for two-wheel drive trucks is designed to mount on the factory drum-brake spindles. It features the Baer 6P (six-piston) radial-mount caliper and a 14-inch two- piece rotor. The system includes stainless steel braided brake hoses as well as 6061-T6 billet machined hubs with heavy-duty Timken or SKF bearings installed. The Pro+ rear features a matched rear 6P caliper designed specifically for rear use. Truck Wheels HRE Wheels, San Diego, presents its updated TR1 line of truck wheels featuring aggressive new Monoblok technology and conical profiles that create a stronger, lighter- weight wheel for street and light off-road applications. The Series TR1 includes the five- spoke TR105, six-spoke TR106, the seven-spoke TR107 and the TR109, all specifically engineered to reduce weight. The TR1 line is available in 20- to 22-inch diameters with widths ranging from 9 to 12 inches and is available in both five- and six-lug configurations with an open PCD.
