a Modified Turbo Diesel

A client recent brought in his 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 for some performance upgrades.  We currently have his Lincoln Continental that we are doing an overhaul on.   The Ford 460 has been rebuilt and put back inside.  But more about the Continental project later. 

The client wanted a little more power from his Dodge Ram.  We started by allowing the 5.9L Cummins turbo diesel breathe better with an aFe Power Stage 2 cold air intake system and a MBRP Performance 5" turbo back exhaust. 

aFe Power Stage 2 Cold Air Intake System

This intake system features a 16 gauge, powder-coated heat shield, heat-insulating molded plastic tubing, and a washable/resusable conical air filter.

MBRP Performance 5" turbo back exhaust
This 5" exhaust replaces the stock, restrictive exhaust to reduce back pressure to increase performance.  This exhaust features minimum degree bends to allow for smoother flowing exhaust gases.  Along with performance advantages, this exhaust improves the sound too.

To get the full advantage of these modifications, a Edge Products' Juice control module and Attitude CTS monitor were installed.

With the Juice, the timing and duration of injector firing is controlled.  The Attitude CTS monitors the trans temperature, trans lock, trans slip, intake temperature, throttle position,  fuel pressure, boost, EGTs, engine load, RPM, and speed.
