Scheid Diesel’s billet-aluminum tappet cover was designed for street-driven, high- powered Dodge Rams suffering from excessive wet blow-by. It offers an easy DIY diesel engine repair to reduce—if not completely eliminate—the wet blow in many performance Cummins engines. Its tappet cover will fit any ’89 to ’02 5.9L engine, and each has provisions in the cover to accept the VE, P7100, or VP44 injection pump.
The latest airflow modification on the market for the 6.4L Power Stroke is No Limit Fabrication’s cold side intercooler piping kit. Its system was designed to enhance flow from the intercooler to the engine and is the only kit on the market that works in conjunction with twin K16 high-pressure fuel systems. Piping can be had in stainless steel or aluminum, in raw form or polished, and select powdercoating colors are available. Kits also come with five-ply, silicone boots and stainless steel mounting hardware.

According to All Season Diesel Performance, one of the biggest frustrations for Duramax owners is leaking transmission lines. To remedy this, it came up with a Duramax Trans Line Repair Kit, which includes three high-quality stainless steel lines and Earl’s reusable fittings. The fittings provide a smooth inside bore, resulting in no flow restrictions, and lines come preassembled and ready to install. According to All Season, the only special tools required for this DIY diesel engine repair are two 1-inch wrenches and a small tubing cutter (tubing cutter also available).

Looking to make better use of your engine’s exhaust heat? Heatshield Products’ HP Manifold Shield for Cummins engines is designed to retain heat in the exhaust system, which decreases gas density and allows gases to leave the manifold, turbo, and downpipe faster. The payoff can be increased boost, less turbo lag, and an overall improvement in turbo efficiency. Its HP Manifold Shield can withstand 1,800 degrees continuous, and 2,200 degrees intermittently. Units are available in black or aluminum finishes.
