4-Wheel Jamboree (Lima, OH)

Once again, XDP made an appearance at the 4-Wheel Jamboree in Lima, Ohio. One of the greatest reasons for why the Jamboree is always so successful is built right in to its name which aims to bring out four-wheel drive enthusiasts. That being said, the wet weather this weekend helped to set the stage for those of us who aren’t afraid of a little mud and some steady rain. We’ve seen shows endure wet climate in the past but the Jamboree is by far always the most resilient and the tireless crowd of this past weekend was nothing short of absolute living proof. If you were one of the many who were willing to tough it out you would have been rewarded with a countless number of big time manufactures who set up some very cool displays, sweet deals on parts for your earth conquering ride and a four-wheel drive show that did not even come close to disappointing.

Fans were out in serious force and were obviously not going to be deterred from having a good-time on the account of an “unfavorable” forecast. Instead, everyone including yours truly made it a point to take full advantage of the opportunity to connect with other fans who share a very strong common interest. And like usual, our good friend and very skilled monster truck driver, Dave Radzierez, captured some serious height at the track which, not surprisingly, brought the crowd onto its feet as we witnessed Dave give his truck a muddy makeover. Good thing it washes off!

If you missed the Jamboree be sure to visit us at one of the many future events that XDP will be attending throughout the season.

XDP’s 6.4L Coolant Filtration System Installation

XD177 - 6.4L Coolant Filter

The XDP 6.4L Coolant Filtration System XD177 is an excellent add-on for any stock or modified 2008-2010 Ford 6.4L Powerstroke. Because of the cast engine design, contaminants such as casting sand and sediment are commonly left over after the engine is manufactured. These contaminants are known to damage many components in your cooling system. By removing them, you are able to extend the life of your coolant, water pump, EGR coolers and other vital components.

This entire kit can be installed with just a few basic hand tools!

XDP Item Number: XD177

Step 1: Relieve the pressure from the coolant system by loosening the radiator fill cap slowly.

Step 2: Drain approximately two gallons of coolant from the truck (driver side bottom of the radiator).

Step 3: Assemble XDP Filter Base and mounting bracket with supplied hardware.

Step 4: Using the supplied thread seal tape, go over all of your threaded fittings to ensure you have a proper seal.

Step 5: Install the ball valves into the filter base and the barbed fittings into the ball vales. The 90 degree barbed fitting installs above the XDP logo and the straight barbed fitting installs to the left of the XDP logo.

Step 6: Plug the remaining filter base hole using the hex socket plug.

Step 7: Thread the coolant supply line into the hose coupler.

Step 8: Remove your air intake housing/box to gain access to you factory heater core line.

Step 11: Mount the XDP filter base using two passenger side transmission crossmember bolts. Remove the two nuts and mount the assembled filter base and bracket in place. Tighten the nuts back down.

xd177 MOUNT LOCATION

DSC_0897Step 12: Route the coolant hoses along frame rail and plumb the lines into the filter base using the smaller hose clamps. The coolant supply, the larger T, will plumb into the 90 degree barbed fitting on the filter base. The coolant return, the smaller T, will plumb into the straight barbed fitting. (Removal of the passenger inner fender liner will make routing of the coolant hoses easier.)

Step 13: Lubricate the seal and install the Donaldson P554685 Coolant Filter onto the filter base.

Step 14: Refill the coolant system back to Ford Specifications.

Step 15: Be sure the valves are in the open position. Inspect for any leaks and top off the coolant as needed.

Initially, the filter should be changed after 1 month of use. The second and third filter should be changed in 3 month intervals. After that the filter can be changed on a yearly basis.

XDP Presents The 2015 Diesel Power Challenge

2015 Diesel Power Challenge, Presented by XDP

XDP as the Presenting Sponsor of the 2015 Diesel Power Challenge

DPC15 Logo

XDP, your true “One-Stop-Shop” for Duramax, Cummins & Powerstroke performance products has once again signed on as the presenting sponsor of the 2015 Diesel Power Challenge.

Every year, Diesel Power Magazine sets out to find the top trucks in the nation. With the help of the reader’s votes, they take 10 trucks and put them into one of the most grueling competitions in diesel motorsports. With just bragging rights on the line, only 1 of the 10 contestants will be crowned champion. To earn this title they must put their pride, truck, and skills on the line while trying to dominate the competition over 3 days and many events and obstacles.

Starting on day 1, the dyno competition is the first of this multi-part torture test. Trucks are tuned, nitrous bottles are filled, and these trucks are ready to put down some serious numbers! At this level of competition, seeing horsepower numbers above 1,000 is common place. Always a fan favorite, the dyno has caused plenty of carnage in the past. It’s anyone’s guess who takes the lead on day one of the competition.

For those that were lucky enough to make it through the dyno event, it’s on to the next day at the mile high dragstrip! There’s no better track in the country to put your vehicle to the test than Bandimere Speedway. This is where we can see what does and doesn’t perform at over 5,000 feet. Track day events include drag racing, a trailer tow obstacle course and trailer tow drag race. It’s easy to see how this is yet another part of the grueling competition these trucks must endure.

While the fuel mileage testing normally started off the final morning of the Diesel Power Challenge, Diesel Power Magazine has made some changes for 2015. This year, each competitor will receive a locking gas cap, and the staff of Diesel Power Magazine will be dispensing and monitoring their fuel consumption throughout the entire week! This will give us the best indication of what truck can really pull in the best mileage at the highest of performance levels.

This brings us to the last portion of the event, the sled pull! The competitors and the crew will head to the local fairgrounds, hook to a sled and see who can pull it furthest. This is where we find out who really has the most well rounded truck. After the sled pull, the crew heads back to the awards dinner where the champion will be crowned!

The action kicks off next week on Monday, May 4th and the cameras will be rolling all week. Over the course of the week the events will be filmed in the greater Denver area. After the event be sure to stay tuned for details on the release of the 2014 Diesel Power Challenge DVD sold exclusively by XDP!

Rudy’s Diesel 2015 Season Opener

Rudy's Season Opener

This past weekend XDP had the opportunity to attend Rudy’s Diesel Performance season opener. The two day event was packed with a host of venders, diesel drag racing, sled pulling, show-n-shine, burn out contest and many other great activities. The show started off with excellent weather, eager fans and determined racers. As the gates opened fans flooded the area speaking with vendors, checking out the racers and having a good old time. As the day progressed, drag racing and sled pulling dominated the afternoon with numerous high horsepower truck competing to come out on top. After completion of the drag racing and dyno pulls the sled pulling track was prepped and ready for action. The sled pulling went into the night with many dedicated pulling truck giving it their all for a spot on top.

Unfortunately, Saturday the weather did not hold out and rain fell throughout the day. However, this did not keep fans from staying and supporting the event. Despite the poor weather on Saturday the event was a great season opener and we (like always) look forward to the event next year. Look for XDP at our next event in Lima, OH at the 30th annual 4-Wheel Jamboree. XDP would like to thank everyone who stopped by the booth to show their support and for Rudy’s Diesel for hosting such a great event!

2015 NHRDA Texas Diesel Nationals

2015-04-13 16.51.18

XDP joined the NHRDA in Ennis,TX this past weekend for the Texas Diesel Nationals at the Texas Motorplex for diesel drag racing and sled pulling action. The day started out cool and overcast and there were fears that the event may not happen. Thankfully the skies cleared around noon, the sun came out, and the temps rose to about  75 degress. Perfect weather for spectators, vendors, and racers. Drag racing started around 10am and lasted until almost 5 pm. Drag racing was supposed to end around 3pm, but was delayed due to several track cleanups from broken down trucks.

Jarid Vollmer broke another record in his Bully Dog sponsored Cummins powered drag truck. Jarred ran an 8.51et at 159mph which is a new record for the Pro Street class. Winning the pro stock class was of course Ryan Milliken in his MBRP sponsored 1941 Willys duramax powered drag car, dubbed “The Batmobile”. Ryan seems to be unbeatable in the pro stock class in his G&J Diesel built Willys. Overall it was a great show and XDP looks forward to coming back to Ennis for the World Finals in October.

Join XDP next in Lima, OH at the Allen County Fairgrounds for the Lucas Oil 4 wheel Jamboree. Next NHRDA event will be Diesels on the Mountain on May 29th and 30th in Denver CO.
