NHRDA Midwest Truckin Nationals


One of the multiple events XDP attended this weekend was the NHRDA Midwest Truckin Nationals. The event was held at the Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison IL, right across the river from St. Louis, MO. Weather conditions were perfect for racing with a high of 80 and partly cloudy skies. This was a local event for Anthony Reams and the XDP drag truck, Anthony lives about an hour west of the track.

The day started off with high hopes, but those were quickly dashed when the race truck was pulled off the trailer and Anthony noticed coolant leaking in between the head and the block, an indication of a bad head gasket. Anthony did what he could to make the truck race ready by re-torquing the head and hoping the gasket would hold. The truck was able to qualify by taking a green light and then going back to the pits to wait for the actual racing to happen. Anthony was able to make one pass with the truck which he won, running 10.24, but unfortunately the motor gave out at the end of the track. Anthony will take the truck home and rebuild the motor to be stronger and more powerful than it was before and the XDP race truck will be back soon, and even faster.

The next NHRDA event will be the Pacific Coast Diesel Nationals taking place July 11th at the Woodburn Dragstrip in Woodburn, OR.

Fleece Performance Diesel Showdown 2015

Fleece Performance, home of the famous Cheetah turbo and record breaking trucks held an event over the weekend. The Fleece Performance Diesel Showdown was Fleece’s first event and was a killer event. We at XDP had a chance to take a trip out to Indy at the Lucas Oil Raceway to support Fleece Performance, see old friends, meet new ones and check out the races! The show was also a stop for the Outlaw Diesel Super Series (ODSS) and part of the Pro Pulling League (PPL) as well.

This one day event was jam packed with a host of events such as: Drag racing, Sled Pulling, Show-n-Shine and a Dyno Competition. Furthermore, many venders were present to show their support, chat with customers and see the races.

Saturday began with cooler temperatures, some cloud coverage but thankfully no rain. Drag racing began around 10:00 AM included all classes from ET Bracket to Pro Dragster. As the drag racing was finishing up the sled pulling track was being prepped and ready to be torn up! At 6:00 PM the pullers hit the track and gave it their all.

Overall, we at XDP had a great time at the event and cannot wait to come back to the great state of Indiana to show our support again. We would like to thank Fleece Performance for putting on such a great event, we had a blast!

2015 TS Performance Outlaw Diesel Drag Race and Sled Pull

TS2015! A show that everyone looks forward to each year. Many travel hundreds of miles to attend, watch the races and have a good time.

The event began on Thursday with drag racing where many high horsepower trucks battled it out for the win. The XDP race truck (driven by Anthony Reams) was out as well with a completely new setup including an all-new 75/75/91 triple turbo setup and a fully custom air to water intercooler.  The truck was finished with little time to spare and without any testing/tuning the truck sent right to the strip to see what the new setup could do. Devoid of any test passes, Anthony was able to progress to the semi-finals where the competitor won out by .029 seconds! A close race for sure.

Friday and Saturday were the big days for sled pulling, the pulls stared later in the day and went long into the night where trucks gave it all they had to push for the win. The classes included: Super Modified Tractors, Pro Stock Tractors, Super Modified 2WD Trucks, Super Farm Tractors, Light Weight Super Stock, Super Stock Diesel Trucks, 3.0 Diesel Trucks and 2.6 Diesel Trucks. Check out the results for all classes here.

Overall, we at XDP had an excellent time hanging out with customers, fans and everyone who supported us. We would like to thank TS for putting on another great show and look forward to TS2016!

Keep an eye out for us at a few different events on June 27th including: 2015 NHRDA Midwest Truckin’ Nationals (Madison, IL), Outlaw Diesel Super Series – Fleece Performance Diesel Showdown (Indianapolis, IN) and 2015 XDP Jersey Devil Diesel Nationals (Atco, NJ).


BD Diesels on the Mountain

BD Diesel

This past weekend XDP headed to beautiful Denver, Colorado for the NHRDA BD Diesels on the Mountain event. The event started Friday night with sled pulls taking place at the Jefferson Country Fairgrounds in Golden, Colorado. With storms earlier in the day and the sky still dark with clouds we were not sure if the event was going to take place. With the track being prepped and crowds starting to gather in the stands it began to lightly rain. The track crew continued to prep the track in hopes that the rain would subside. Luckily the rain let up enough to allow the event to start. About 15 minutes into the event it began to rain again, this time a little harder. The track began to get a little slick and the trucks looked like they were sliding a little bit. In between classes the rain stopped, the skies cleared, and the rest of the event went off without a hitch.

Saturdays event took place at the famous Bandimere Speedway in Morrison Colorado. After the gloomy, rainy weather of Friday we were hoping for a clear day on Saturday. Our wish was granted and we rewarded with a perfect day for drag racing. The weather turned out to be so perfect that it allowed 2 new NHRDA speed records to happen even though we were a mile up. Jarid Vollmer and the Bully Dog drag truck set a new speed record in Pro Street with a speed of 160mph. Rob Coddens and his 02 LB7 set a new record in Super Street with a speed of 152.37.

Join XDP on June 27th in Madison Illinois for the NHRDA Midwest Truckin Nationals taking place at the Gateway Motorsports Park.

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. For details, hop onto our web site at www.xdp.com and check out the events calendar for a complete listing of upcoming shows in your area. We look forward to seeing you there! Lima

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 9: Cut your lower heater core line and install your coolant supply line using the larger hose clamps.


Step 10: Locate the coolant return line on the top passenger side of the radiator. Cut this line and install your coolant return line using the smaller hose clamps.


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.


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’s Duramax CAT Fuel Filter Adapter Installation


The XDP Duramax CAT Adapter with 1R-0750 Filter, Bleeder Screw & Spacer is an easy way to upgrade the factory fuel filter on your 2001-2015 GM 6.6L Duramax. The durable anodized filter adapter simply threads on to the OEM Filter Head and allows you run the more efficient and less expensive CAT Filter on your truck. For an even easier filter change, we also include a filter head spacer to give you more clearance for filter changes, along with an aluminum bleeder screw to replace the factory supplied plastic version that is commonly damaged during routine maintenance.

XDP Part Number: XD171

Step 1: If equipped, disconnect the factory fuel filter heater wire on the top of the factory fuel filter head.

Step 2: Unplug your Water in Filter (WIF) sensor at the bottom of your factory filter. This sensor can be saved or discarded as it will not be re-installed. (Removal of the WIF sensor will not trigger a check engine light.)

1Step 3: Drain and remove your factory fuel filter.
Step 4: Disconnect the factory filter head by removing the (2) bolts securing the filter head to the mounting bracket.

Step 5: Reattach the filter head to the using the supplied 3/8” spacer and bolts. (2011+ applications will use the longer 45mm spacer bolts.)
Step 6: Lubricate the O-rings and thread the XDP filter adapter onto the factory filter head and hand tighten.

3Step 7: If equipped, reconnect the factory fuel filter heater wire.
Step 8: Lubricate the CAT filter seal and hand tighten onto the adapter.

4Step 9: Replace the plastic factory air bleeder screw with the new aluminum bleeder screw. Before tightening the new bleeder screw, prime the filter by depressing the priming pump until all air is completely out of the system.

Step 10: Tighten your air bleeder screw, start the engine and check for any leaks. (If you have issues holding a prime, remove the adapter/filter and re-lube the O-ring/seal to ensure you have a good seal.)


Suggested Filter Service Intervals:
Used as the primary fuel filter – 10,000 Miles
Used as the secondary filter along with an aftermarket fuel filtration systems (Airdog, FASS, Fuelab, Etc.) – 50,000 Miles
