Pacific Performance Engineering
PPEDual Fueler CP3 Pump Kit
Single CP3 Pumps work well in stock or slightly modified trucks. When you invest time and money on performance parts for your truck, the lonely single CP3 pump just can't keep up. In fact, many performance upgrades fall short of their projected gains. The solution is to install a Dual Fueler Kit from PPE. Work load is cut in half, relieving stress on pumps and drive gears. Fuel flow is maintained and fuel pressure is ready when your engine needs it.
Performance upgrades will finally reach their full potential. Daily drivers, Short Haul, Long Haul, and Competition Racers all benefit from using a Dual Fueler Kit.
Application - GM Duramax 2002-2009, Dodge Cummins 2003-2009

Cool Hose Intake Duct
$139 and up
Claims of increased air flow from air intakes are misleading in real-world applications. Improving air density into the engine is paramount for increasing power, fuel mileage and reducing egt. The "Cool Hose" intake ducts are made from 5 layers of fabric reinforced silicone rubber to provide the strongest and best thermal conductivity material to keep hot under hood heat from transferring into the air intake duct; 15 times better than molded plastic and 1600 times better than aluminum ducts.
The "Cool Hose" was tested and proven to be the best intake duct available for Dodge diesel trucks.

2009 marks the re-design of all TrailReady bumpers to a more compact and aggressive appearance and extra stout grill guards. TrailReady, the original builder of high-style plate steel bumpers, is still setting the standard with awesome looks, running right at the edge without being over the top! Each unit includes quad light ports for 6- and 4-inch lights, integral winch mount up to 16.5K, D-ring shackle mounts and two coat powdercoat. TrailReady bumpers are excellent for a clean, non-bulky look without grill guard. For the more aggressive look, the pre-runner guard or super tough full guard is the perfect choice.
