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**

XDP’s 6.0L Coolant Filtration System Installation

The Ford 6.0L’s poor reputation of failures are most often linked to the OEM engine oil cooler. The coolant that flows through the engine oil cooler often carries debris that can, over time, completely block the cooling channels. When these channels become blocked a pattern of failures have a tendency to follow (leaking EGR cooler, blown head gasket, HPOP failure, overheated engine oil, injector failure).

By installing our XDP 6.0L Coolant Filtration System you’ll extend the life of the engine’s vital components as well and your coolant. This easy installation of pre-assembled high quality silicone hoses gives the engine a fresh new look. The included ball valves are extremely helpful for minimizing coolant loss during filter changes and also provide a shut-off to bypass the system should you ever need it. With just a few basic hand tools, the installation of our XDP coolant filtration system can be done from the comfort of your own home.

Diesel Particulate Filter: Get to Know What’s Under Your Truck

All diesels from late-2007 are required to have an emissions device on them called a Diesel Particulate Filter. These filters dramatically reduce soot (particulate matter) emissions and have played a huge role in protecting diesel passenger vehicles from increasingly stringent emissions standards. Ford, GM and Dodge all equipped their trucks with these devices and in 2011 Ford and GM also equipped theirs with SCR (Selective Catalyst Reduction) as well as Dodge on their Cab and Chassis trucks, reducing emissions further and increasing horsepower by allowing the truck to be more aggressively fueled from the factory while still meeting emissions standards.

The DPF is similar in design to a catalytic converter and is placed after the catalytic converter in the vehicle’s exhaust. Its sole purpose is to block soot and reduce the emissions that make it out of the tailpipe. When the DPF filter becomes clogged, it needs to be heated to clean itself out. To accomplish this, the engine injects fuel in on the exhaust stroke so that it heats up and travels to the particulate filter, burning up any matter that is clogging the filter and allowing the truck to run correctly. The downside to this is that it takes a reasonably large quantity of fuel to clean out the DPF, or “Regenerate.”

The DPF works in conjunction with the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system which routes exhaust gas back into the engine to be burned again, which cleans up emissions by further breaking down the chemicals in the exhaust. The downside to the EGR setup is that it can reduce engine output because of the hot air being sent back into the engine and it dirties the inside of the engine over time. On the 6.0L Ford trucks, the EGR system was the cause of much more serious engine problems involving heightened cylinder pressures and blown head gaskets.

SCR, which is the injection of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) into the exhaust to reduce NOx emissions, is another process that manufacturers are using to cut down on the emissions of these trucks as well as restoring lost horsepower. SCR allows the engine to fuel more aggressively while still meeting emissions standards because the urea in the DEF chemically alters the exhaust gas before it reaches the catalytic converter and the DPF, reducing the risk of damage to the DPF from over-fueling and cutting down on the frequency of the regen cycle. SCR’s biggest limitation is the requirement of fluid additions between oil changes; the fluid is not inexpensive and is not widely available yet.

That is a basic synopsis of how these devices function, but the most important thing to know is exactly how these affect your truck and the way it runs. For starters, a truck equipped with a DPF from the factory is likely going to return lower fuel economy than an older diesel that is not equipped with a particulate filter. The reason for this is simply that the regeneration process uses (potentially) gallons of fuel and that fuel is not being used to make horsepower or accomplish any work. Trucks that haul loads or are driven around town frequently will have to regen less often because the filter is more efficient under higher loads. Conversely, trucks that spend lengthy periods of time at idle or on the highway without a load will have to regen more frequently and in turn see reduce fuel economy.

Removing the particulate filter is a violation of Federal emissions regulations and is designed specifically for race and off-road use only. XDP carries all of the DPF, EGR, and catalytic converter delete setups for Dodge, Ford and GM as well as the required tuning for these vehicles.Trucks with a DPF equipped will benefit from the use of a quality fuel additive like XDP Diesel Power Plus (http://www.xtremediesel.com/xdpdieselpowerplusfueladditive.aspx). This additive boosts the cetane rating of the fuel by 5% and cleans out the fuel system so the engine produces lower emissions, which in turn means the DPF does not clog up as quickly or as frequently. These trucks are also more sensitive to maintenance, so making sure that the truck has fresh fluid and quality fuel in it will help improve the performance of the vehicle. Finally, doing a cold air intake, programmer and filter-back exhaust setup will help improve fuel economy and performance as well as lowering exhaust gas temperatures.

Particulate filter technology is evolving quickly and is going to be equipped on every diesel passenger vehicle designed and built in the foreseeable future. As the technology improves, horsepower and fuel economy will improve along with it. For now, the tips we outlined above will help you to improve the performance of your truck while abiding by federal emissions regulations, and for those looking for big horsepower race trucks, we have the delete pipes you need for those as well!

XDP’s Fuel Sump: A Way to Draw Fuel That Doesn’t Suck

Sum

For nearly a decade, XDP has been at the forefront of diesel performance. Diesel enthusiasts (you!) have known for years that the key to increasing horsepower is about increasing fuel and air to make the explosion that takes place inside of the combustion chamber larger, leading to more horsepower. One of the earliest modifications we recommend to do to any diesel truck is an upgraded fuel system like one of the offerings from Airdog or FASS. These fuel systems incorporate finer fuel filters than the factory units that trucks are equipped with along with water separators that ensure only the highest quality fuel makes it to your injection pump and then to your precious injectors. These units only create a slight increase in horsepower but improve the operating efficiency of the truck, the durability and reliability of the fueling system and they increase fuel flow and pressure to make sure that the truck is getting enough fuel for future horsepower upgrades.

Historically one of the challenges to installing these systems was the required installation of a high-flow suction tube, or draw straw. What happens sometimes if the suction tube is not installed close enough to the bottom of the tank is around a quarter tank the truck can start to suck air and lose fuel pressure, which results in a loss of horsepower and a troubleshooting headache. We have developed a solution to both simplify the installation of any aftermarket fuel system as well as improve the performance of them by ensuring they get a constant supply of fuel. Our fuel sump comes complete and ready to install with our internal horseshoe ring that allows a simple installation that does not require dropping the fuel tank.

The reason our fuel sump works so much better is simple: It uses the principle of gravity to its advantage. Fuel comes down into the sump rather than having to be drawn up, which means that the fueling is always ready and waiting for your aftermarket lift pump to send to your injection pump. We designed the sump to work with both a stock tank as well as an aftermarket high-capacity unit so you can get both range and effective fueling from your rig.

With XDP’s fuel sump you can accomplish two important goals: Improving the performance of your aftermarket lift pump and simplifying the installation of your new fuel system. At just $149.95 you can’t go wrong with a fuel sump for your truck, it’s the only sump good enough to wear the XDP logo!
