Big Three Exhaust Option
The TD Series of MBRP Diesel Exhaust systems were designed to give diesel owners an extra choice. Made from rugged, 16 gauge, T409 stainless steel, these turndown systems are perfect for lowered trucks with limited clearance in the quarter-panel area. In addition, they’re ideal for lifted trucks where suspension components can interfere with an exhaust tailpipe. TD series systems come with a high-flow, spiral-louvered core muffler and a polished, T304 stainless steel tip. Kits are available for Chevy, Dodge, and Ford trucks.

Revolutionary Exhaust Manifolds
Steed Speed Performance now offers upgraded exhaust manifolds for ’03 to ’10 Power Strokes. During testing (and when paired with a set of 2½-inch up-pipes from Powerstroke Connection), its groundbreaking manifolds provided a 92hp increase in a 6.4L application. According to Steed Speed, its manifolds flow so well they enable large turbos to spool like stock, can lower engine temperature, and vastly reduce EGT. Built entirely from CNC-machined billet-steel components, its manifolds feature V-band outlets and perfectly flat flanges and are ceramic coated. Combining it with something like the MBRP Diesel Exhaust is common for even more power.

Duramax Boost Manifold
If you’ve been looking for an easier, faster way to install a boost gauge or injectables, like nitrous or water-methanol injection, on your ’01 to ’10 Duramax, Alligator Performance has you covered. Its Diesel Race Parts (DRP) boost manifold rules out having to pull the factory intake manifold, drill and tap it, and run the risk of the cast material cracking later on down the road. According to Alligator Performance, it’s perfect for the shade-tree mechanic as well as shops that are pressed for time.

Lakewood Industries, a brand of Prestolite Performance, recently introduced the RM-2050 diesel bellhousing, which fits ’89 to ’07 5.9L engines to ’92 to ’97 NV4500 five-speed manual transmissions. Built from high-grade steel, its bellhousing has more than twice the strength of a typical steel unit. In addition, the bellhousing’s cone is spin-formed (not rolled or stamped) to provide consistent wall thickness and unmatched strength. All units are precisely manufactured to be the most dimensionally stable bellhousings for today’s high-performance street and pulling trucks.
