Why does my intercooler hose keeps popping off!? BD Diesel may offer some help.

There are various reasons for intercooler hoses popping off. Some people complain it’s from a defect in the intercooler boot. Others are because the hose is just getting old and beginning to wear. Sometimes its just too much boost pressure – coupled with an aging hose. All of it is bad, and for the most part can be remedied simply. Some people try using multiple clamps along with some hairspray or superglue or some kind of magic ritual when the stars are aligned just right. This usually will not work. Some people buy entirely new intercoolers to solve the problem. I say why not try a new hose and clamp set? It worked for me. It may work for you too.

Eye-catching blue Nomex silicone hoses can withstand over 100 psi pounds per square inch of boost, and are secured by rugged, spring-loaded, stainless steel T-bar clamps. Engineered for each individual application, BD hose and clamp kits are a must for any modified turbo diesel.

BD Diesel’s Electronic Boost Builders

Dodge Cummins 5.9L/6.0L (1989-2007)


Get more performance out of your electronically controlled engine by plugging in one of BD’s Electronic Boost Builders. Installed in-line with the MAP sensor, the Electronic Boost Builder increases boost pressure and intercepts the message to the ECM, preventing it from setting an overboost trouble code that can cost between 50-80 horsepower. BD’s Boost Builders are a perfect match for engines with power module, injector or turbo enhancements.

If you don’t have a chip or tuner, better injectors or better turbo, the builder wont do anything for you. The boost builder fools the computer into thinking there is less boost than there really is. In stock format when the computer sees more than 24psi of boost it will cut back on fuel. By fooling it, you will allow it to continue to fuel and make more power.

TECH TALK: Killer Dowel Pin on Dodge Cummins

Killer Dowel Pin

Dodge 5.9L Cummins

Killer Dowel Pin Syndrome. It’s a problem that has been reported on 1989-1998.5 Dodges 5.9L Cummins and is something that can have catastrophic results.

During the engines assembly, a steel dowel pin is pressed into the trucks block to precisely locate its timing-gear housing. So What’s The problem? Vibrations in the trucks engine can cause the dowel pin to work its way out, and because it’s made of steel, there is no working its way through the engine. It becomes the dowel pin of death.

Here are three situations that can happen:

Situation 1: You get EXTREMELY lucky and the pin falls through the maze of the cam, crank, and injection pump, gears and lands in the oil pan or on the bottom of the gear housing.

Situation 2: The pin falls out, and comes in contact with the cam gear and smashes into the gear housing on the front of your engine. Because it is steel and not aluminum, the steel wins. The housing will crack open or lose a big chunk right where the dowel pin was forced into the housing. If this happens, you will wake up the next morning and notice the oil in your driveway. The repair for this can be costly.

Situation 3: The pin falls and tears up the cam gear or breaks it off completely. The valves will then smash into the pistons, creating a “junkyard” in your combustion chambers. Scraping metal does not work nearly as well as #2 diesel, and this can take out your heads, valves, pistons, and even possibly your engine block, making it impossible to rebuild. If this happens, there are rarely any parts you can salvage, and the only option is to either to sell the truck for parts or pick up a new engine for a couple thousand dollars. When this happens, you’ll be left stranded on the side of the road.

The Solution:In order to avoid a costly repair bill, companies like BD Diesel offer a KDP (Killer Dowel Pin) Kits that consists of a new bolt, gaskets and a tab to hold in the dowel pin so it will not be able to work it’s way loose.

BD Diesel Valve Body

Transmission Shift Strategy Modifications

Valve_Body_Dodge

BD’s exchange valve bodies are modified, tuned and tested to provide optimum performance in towing and performance applications. These units feature revised valve design, new springs, larger oil ports and proprietary governor piston dimensions. Hand lapped surfaces prevent internal leakage, while new trim valves increase mainline pressure. The end result is improved shift quality, increased clutch holding capacity, reduced friction and extended transmission life. What’s more, BD’s Dodge valve bodies allow for first and second gear lock-up – a great feature for slowing heaving loads down steep grades (TowLoc/TorqLoc required) Add longevity and performance to your transmission, while making your truck fun to drive.

An economical way to improve the performance and clutch life of your stock transmission is to install a BD Performance Valve Body. Our complete upgrade of the stock valve body consists of new valve designs, increased capacity springs, revised oil circuits and optimized governor piston dimensions which the improved oil flow reduces temperatures and lowers torque converter evacuation time for quicker clutch apply.

BD’s NEW DESIGN achieves up to 80% higher clutch apply pressures over the stock unit and up to 50% over the competitors with the increase starting at much lower engine rpm’s and at lighter throttle pedal position movement. Light throttle shift firmness is also maintained at these higher apply pressures.

This new building process also eliminates the often referred to “Shuttle Shifting” or hunting-for-gears in the 2004-2006 48RE transmissions.

With the new designed valve bodies achieving the higher pressures, a BD PressureLoc is no longer needed when an exhaust brake is installed to assist in preventing converter lock up clutch slippage – this unit does it all!

We also added second gear lock-up capability that with the addition of one of our TorqLoc or TowLoc kits can offer serious engine retarding capability on towing applications.

Each valve body is tested to ensure proper function before shipping. While you’re replacing the valve body, add one of our heavy duty aluminum oil pans for greater oil capacity, cooler oil temperature and improved case rigidity.
