A head gasket blowout can be a real inconvenience. If you are experiencing problems with your head gaskets, aren’t sure if you’re getting a good seal, or need to replace the o-rings in your engine heads, consider upgrading your engine with an ATS Diesel Fire Ring Kit. These kits are the way to go if you’re looking for a significant increase in your engine’s performance. ATS Diesel Fire Ring Kits are designed to provide a tighter fit, giving you a better seal and added protection, especially if your engine needs to handle the higher amounts of boost or load. The additional, more precise machining required (included as part of the kit price) will provide a fit which is more snug than regular gaskets and o-rings.
Again, note that kit price includes machine work, fire rings and gaskets. This also covers the cleaning and inspection of both heads as well as all required machining, including decking each head to ensure they’re completely flat, as well as the cutting of the grooves. Each kits also includes a new set of head gaskets that are precision-cut around the exclusive fire rings, which set in the grooves machined into the head and are “crushed” against the block to provide the most reliable seal available! High-torque head studs are required for most effective operation as they will help prevent the head from lifting and causing gasket failure.
Yes, o-rings will do okay and can last if you are using your truck as a daily street driver, usually holding no more than 80 PSI of boost. But if you’re not sure whether you need the improved fit, but do need to replace the o-rings or gaskets anyway, consider the benefits of getting one of these kits. You won’t regret going with a much better alternative to regular o-rings and gaskets, especially given that these kits won’t cost you that much more than what you may already be getting ready to spend. We’re confident you’ll be happy with the added peace of mind.
ATS Diesel Fire Ring Kits are definitely recommended for racing applications because they can hold 120+ PSI of Boost. Of course, you’ll want to take it easy on the throttle during the first month of use and should re-torque the studs after the first 200 miles of street driving or after your first competition. As a solid improvement to any Dodge Cummins or Ford Power Stroke engine, you can trust these kits to give your engine the protection and performance you’re looking for!!!
