XDP at the ODSS Season Finale


 This week the XDP crew made its way to Piedmont Dragway in North Carolina to exhibit and race in the fall finale to the Outlaw Diesel Super Series. Things kicked off Friday with a bit of a change in drag racing plans due to a potential weather threat for Saturday. Instead of the XDP Race Team running a single qualifier on Friday, we ran the entire pro street class on Friday to ensure the popular class could get completed and enjoyed by race fans.


 The XDP Race Team had a solid qualifying pass to kick things off, running the 1/8 mile track at 6.34 @ 109 mph to get into the show.  However, in our first round pass we ran into mechanical issues on the starting line which knocked us out and ended our day early.  Although we were disappointed in being eliminated, it was a great call by the officials to complete the class on Friday.  We then moved onto helping other friends and racers, even jumping in to lend a hand with Dan Scheid as their team experienced mechanical issues, which just like us, left them on the starting line in their last round.


 One of the more anticipated races of the day was the final round of Pro Street which saw Ryan Milliken and Ben Shadday face off.  This was the first time these two had lined up against each other in a Pro Street final this season and Friday’s race went to Ben Shadday by a slim four hundredths margin.

Meanwhile, the vendor midway was busy Friday and also Saturday (even during the rain).  We saw a lot of customers and friends and it was good to see so many familiar faces stop by the XDP booth.  A big thank you to Rudy’s staff who worked extra hard even during the rain to make sure everything went smoothly and make sure everyone was comfortable.

 XDP enjoyed attending and supporting all the ODSS events this year and we thank series organizers for a great inaugural season.

2015 XDP Open House


Throughout the year, the XDP Crew travels far and wide to attend diesel events all over country, but the most exciting event for us is right at home at our Headquarters in Wall Township, NJ. The XDP Open House kicks off on Sunday morning, the day after the U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals. After a long day at the track the day before, the XDP Open House gives everyone a more relaxed environment, perfectly fitting for a Sunday afternoon, with live entertainment, the dyno competition, and of course a free bbq and pig roast!

The 6th annual XDP Open House followed the same format as we have in the past, 2
dynos total – one in the front and one around back, a dj, live band, tons of food, games, prizes, and of course, deep discounts, show specials and over 20+ manufacturers on-site to answer any questions and give advice on selecting the right parts for your truck.

At around 11am all of our Fans were lined up and waiting for the gates to open. Once we let the crowd in, the XDP headquarters quickly filled with diesel fanatics from all over the tri-state area. With deep discounts and incredible show specials, many of our fans started off the morning looking for the best deals on some new parts, along with enjoying the scenery and getting some free lunch!

With most of the dyno spots already sold out we wasted no time getting trucks on the dyno to spin the rollers. We saw some impressive numbers with several trucks cranking out over 1000HP, at the wheels! At that level of competition, it’s always likely to see some carnage, and that we did! A 6.4L Powerstroke hit the dyno and quickly tested the limits of intercooler boots, causing the intercooler to actually jump over after it separated from the intercooler tubes (see our Instagram for video). The owners knew the truck was hurt after that but continued to run anyway putting on another show with a little bit of fire. We’ve got no complaints though; it’s all in the name of the game with high horsepower trucks!

With all the action outside, we still had a ton going on inside as our showroom was jam packed. Vendors like aFe Power, BD-Power, and Edge Products were on-site and our Performance Specialists were busy taking orders just as fast as our warehouse could bring them out! In the center of our showroom, we had all the raffle prizes on display and tickets were being entered for some awesome prizes such as a free AirDog Fuel System or Titan Fuel Tank, just to name a few of the 20 raffle prizes supplied by our event sponsors.

Headed back outside, we had some additional space for the huge camper from FASS Fuel Systems, along with the Magnaflow big rig and trailer. Out to the right of our building we had the crew cookin’ up lunch with some hot dogs, burgers and of course, pulled pork sandwiches. Across the way from them was the live entertainment from the band and D.J.

All in all, we had a great time just like we do every year! From all of us at XDP, we’d like to thank all of the manufacturers that come out to help us make this event possible, and of course, all of our fans that come out and support us! We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2016 XDP Open House!


Indianapolis 4 Wheel Jamboree


This past weekend XDP headed to Indianapolis, Indiana for the 34th annual 4 Wheel Jamboree at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The event was held over a course of 3 days from Friday to Sunday. Friday and Saturdays events were hampered by heavy morning storms that delayed the start by a couple hours. Both days ended up being sunny and warm after about 11am once the storms were done.

Dave Radzierez and the XDP Cummins powered monster truck was there to compete in the monster truck racing and freestyle events. Dave won his first round of racing on Friday beating Dan Runte and Bigfoot. Unfortunately, during the second round of racing he broke a driveshaft yoke on takeoff and was done for the night. Dave was able to work on the truck that night and get it put back together for Saturdays events. On Saturday, Dave competed in the first round of racing and freestyle without any issues. During Saturday nights freestyle event the XDP truck hit a jump and launched the truck about 15 feet in the air. When the truck came back down he busted off the left rear “champagne” which caused the wheel and planetary assembly to come off the truck. Thanks to some of Daves friends in the monster truck community they were able to replace the broken parts that night and were ready for Sundays events.

Join XDP next at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas for the NHRDA World Finals. The event takes places October 2nd and 3rd.

39th Annual U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals


Every September as the summer winds down, the XDP Crew keeps things full speed ahead for the biggest diesel weekend on the east coast! An event to never miss, the U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals is just one of the two events of our Diesel Weekend Extravaganza that takes place in late September and brings diesel pickups, big rigs, cement mixers, dump trucks and just about every on-road diesel truck you can think of, together for a day of non-stop action!

Starting in the early hours of Saturday morning, the XDP Crew gets ready for a busy day by assembling the XDP Midway. With over 20 of the top industry manufacturers on-site, there is someone there to provide support, advice and suggestions on every part you can think of for your truck.

Once the racing starts you’ll see everything from high performance big rigs, dump trucks and of course, diesel pickups rolling down the track. Because the presence of diesel pickups has grown exponentially over the years, Raceway Park has provided XDP the entire west side of the track. This allows us to fit the XDP Midway, Race Display, VIP Show Trucks and even a diesel only parking lot to keep all of the diesel pickup fanatics in one place!

After a long day of drag racing and admiring all the show trucks, the fans in attendance head to the stands for the thrill show once the sun goes down. After the opening ceremonies the XDP Drag Truck took to the track and made a pass. Shortly after, the jet powered cars came out to show off their speed with a pass down the track that you can literally feel in your stomach as the jet engines vibrate the ground beneath you, immediately followed by the jet powered semi of Bob Motz, a perfect addition to the Diesel Truckin’ Nationals.  After all the jet-powered vehicles come out, the Monster Trucks slow things down but keep the action intense. Crushing cars, and flying high to put on a show for everyone in the grandstands!

Overall, the U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals is an awesome, family-friendly event for EVERYONE! Stay tuned for a recap of day 2 of the XDP Diesel Weekend Extravaganza as the action took place at the XDP Open House, in Wall Township, NJ.


Scheid Diesel Extravaganza 2015


This past weekend we headed to Terre Haute, Indiana for the 19th annual Scheid Diesel Extravaganza. This was the 5th of 6 events in the Outlaw Diesel Super Series. This was also our first time attending the event, and we were certainly not disappointed! The event was packed with an attendance in excess of 15,000 people.

The event started on Friday with qualifying sled pulls and test and tune drag racing. The XDP drag truck was there with a brand new motor and a freshly wrapped XDP trailer. Unfortunately, the XDP truck blew its torque converter on the first pass and was done for the day. Anthony and the rest of the XDP race team were up until 1 am pulling the transmission and getting the old converter out.

Saturday’s events included Sled pull finals and drag racing qualifying. Anthony and the XDP race crew started working on the truck early in the morning trying to get it ready for racing. After many hours of work they were able to get the truck up and running. The truck was able to race, but the transmission would not shift properly and the XDP crew decided to call it a day. The XDP Crew will work on the truck in the upcoming weeks so it will be 100% ready for the XDP Open House on September 19th and 20th in New Jersey.

Sundays events included drag racing elimination and a burnout contest. XDP went home Sunday morning because we were eliminated from drag racing and all had long journeys ahead of us to get home.

XDP is very happy we got to attend the event this year and look forward to returning next year! A big thanks to Scheid Diesel for allowing us to set up at their event and for putting on such an awesome show!

Join XDP next for the Oklahoma Diesel Nationals at Tulsa Raceway in Tulsa, OK on 9/12. We will also be in Ogden, Utah for Edge Products’ Weekend on the Edge event. That event also takes place on September 12th and will have a dyno event at Edge’s facility and then sled pulls after the dyno at the Ogden Pioneer Stadium.

Don’t forget to come to the XDP Open House and U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals on September 19th and 20th. September 19th will offer drag racing and a truck show and the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. September 20th will be XDP’s Open House at XDPs facility in Wall Township, NJ. The event will offer a dyno event and customer appreciation day.

Join XDP for the final event of the Outlaw Diesel Super Series on October 9th for Rudy’s Fall Truck Jam at Piedmont Dragway in Julian, NC.

XDP’s Ford 6.0L Basic EGR Delete Installation

XD186The Ford 6.0L PowerStroke’s relationship with its EGR system often doesn’t lead to a happy ending. Many owners would agree that the EGR system was one of, if not the first concerns they had after purchasing their 6.0L. Due to the failing reputation associated with the EGR systems, XDP offers multiple types of EGR Deletes for this application. Our newest addition is the XDP 6.0L Basic EGR Delete Kit with Coolant Block-Off Plate (Part Number: XD186).

Using the same proven design as our standard EGR Delete Kit, the Basic EGR Delete is built with ease of install and value in mind. The specially designed Up-Pipe Block-Off Plate simply clamps in place to block the cooler connection of your factory up-pipe. This saves time, money and the hassle of working between the firewall when removing/replacing the factory passenger side up-pipe.

**For off-road use only**

The EGR delete system should not throw a check engine light on 03-04 trucks. On 2005 models it has been noted that if the EGR valve is left in place the truck shouldn’t throw any codes. 06-07 models require aftermarket tuning such as an SCT programmer to avoid any trouble codes.
