Parts That Can Make a Difference
Details, DetailsCleaning and polishing your truck’s every nook and cranny is even easier when using the Mothers Speed Line set of car care products. In addition to Speed Clay 2.0 and Speed Spray Wax, which gloss and shine while removing contaminants, the lineup also includes the Speed Line Interior Detailer, all-purpose degreaser, Foaming Glass and Screen aerosol, and Tire Shine, which coats the tire sidewall but won’t sling, brown, or run.
The Deep EndGreater oil capacity, improved heat transfer, added protection, and improved style are a few of the benefits that come with the new Pacific Performance Engineering DEEP Transmission Pan for the ’03-to-’07 Ford 5R110 transmission. With 6 quarts of added capacity, strengthening side ribs, internal baffles, and a magnetic drain plug, the PPE pan will help keep your transmission operating longer. Added capacity and those internal baffles help prevent sloshing and keep fluid cooler for improved transmission operation, too.

Bridge The GapA freer-flowing unit than stock, ProFab Performance’s Pro Flow Duramax short Y-bridge is built the way GM should have done it from the factory. The company claims its 3-inch Y-bridge improves any truck’s performance, and its short design gives it more versatility and flexibility. Powdercoated black for sleek style, it also has a built-in flow diverter for better performance.
Switch HitterYour eight-lug truck has tons of different accessories, each of which can tax your electrical system if you’re not careful. A good power-management tool like the sPOD HD smart switch panel can help keep the juice flowing. The HD uses a billet aluminum housing, and its eight tactile switches are encased in silicone for durability in the dirtiest, toughest environments. Each button is programmable for a variety of functions, and built-in Bluetooth connectivity allows the HD to be controlled by a mobile device. It’s a high-tech way to keep your various electrical accessories at the ready.
Blast Off!Because nothing lasts forever, even the most meticulously maintained trucks will feature some amount of performance degradation over time. Royal Purple wants to help, and its Max-Blast intake valve cleaner is a fun way to remove some of the gunk that builds up on intake valves. Combustion deposits can form on intake valves, resulting in power loss, less efficient running, and even pre-ignition. But Max-Blast (which is sprayed directly into the intake) penetrates those deposits and safely removes them, helping restore performance and proper engine function.
Need a Lift?Now available for the all-new ’17 Ford F-Series Super Duty, Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000 helper air spring kit can provide better handling and improved load-carrying characteristics. The LoadLifter 5000 can also be optioned with internal jounce bumpers for even better performance. The air springs install easily with no drilling into the frame required, and Air Lift offers a variety of onboard wired, wireless, and automatic air inflators for the springs, should you want a self-contained package.
Tach SupportNasty driveline vibrations aren’t just an annoyance. They can cause serious damage to parts such as the transmission housing. However, Sinister Diesel’s Rear Housing Support provides protection to ’01-to-’16 Duramax-powered 4x4 pickups by preventing cracks in the housing caused by bad U-joints or dented driveshafts. It installs easily in just a few hours using factory bolts, and it’s backed by a lifetime warranty.
