Cummins Dress Up Kit
Dressing up your common-rail Cummins has never been so easy. Dr. Performance now offers these full, one-piece Cummins dress up kit via valve covers for '03 to '10 5.9L and 6.7L engines. Its valve covers are constructed from aluminum and are a direct replacement for the factory unit. According to Dr. Performance, they can be had in powdercoated red, blue, black, or raw, and all valve covers come with a billet oil cap (as shown). Custom engraving is also available. A favorite color might also make for a great Cummins Dress Up Kit gift idea!

Billet Rods For 6.0L
Are you pushing serious power levels with your 6.0L Power Stroke? River City Diesel's billet connecting rods might be next on your list of needs. Its rods feature an H-beam-style design to save reciprocating mass and use military-spec, aircraft-quality, chromoly steel, which is said to be similar to 300M. In addition, these rods are triple-tempered, surface-peened, cryogenically treated, and balanced plus or minus 1 gram using ARP fasteners. All units are Magnaflux-inspected and Rockwell hardness-tested.

Cooler Torqshift
One good way to keep your '08 to '10 Ford's hard-working 5R110 TorqShift automatic transmission cool is by increasing its fluid capacity. PML's newest transmission pans offer 4 additional quarts of fluid capacity and feature raised outside fins to help dissipate heat. Its pans have a 3/16-inch-thick outer case, a 3/8-inch-thick gasket flange for a secure seal, and a magnetic drain plug for easy maintenance. They also feature internal baffles, which keep ATF near the filter inlet and eliminate the need for a filter extension.

Ultra-Torque
Automotive Racing Products' (ARP) Ultra-Torque fastener assembly lubricant is the new standard for fastener installation on performance diesel engines. According to ARP, Ultra-Torque gets you within 5 percent of your target pre-load on the first pull and stays consistent with each subsequent torque cycle. In addition, Ultra-Torque is 100 percent metal-free and allows for a higher physical property melting point, better corrosion prevention, and improved wear resistance. It also eliminates galling and seizing on fastener threads.
