Diesel Army’s Ultimate Holiday Buyer’s Guide


Yup, it’s that time of year again. Christmas songs in every store (starting way too early it seems), decorations, trees, and lights galore – enough of that rhyming stuff. Let’s just get down to the brass tacks of it. Car guys absolutely LOVE Christmas! And generally it’s not because of the cheerful music and bountiful feasts of food (although that part doesn’t suck), but more along the lines of the annual excuse to actually get away with buying car parts galore!

Mike_RyanWe can actually get away with, not only buying ourselves some goodies for our never-ending projects, but somehow – if we’re lucky enough – we can even convince those closest to us to go out and take advantage of all of the great holiday deals to score even more worthy parts from those we love. This year we rallied the troops to scrounge up some of the coolest automotive parts and accessories along with the hottest deals out there for the holidays. So, whether you’ve been mildly naughty and only deserving of some Stocking Stuffers, or if you’ve just scratched the surface of Nice, or went all out and are on the way to the REALLY Nice list – we’ve got something for everyone.

Open up that email window and get your “copy and paste” on, send your favorites to the wife, family, or anyone else you can talk into furnishing your wish list – Happy Holidays everyone!

Contact: atsdiesel.com, (866) 209-3695

ats_atomizerThe ATS Atomizer Power Module for the 2007-2012 Dodge 6.7L Cummins controls engine fuel rail pressures based on the engine load in order to maintain an optimal volume of fuel to the injectors. By doing this, the fuel droplets are introduced into the cylinders at the smallest size possible and create an efficient burn when mixed with air and combusted. The Atomizer communicates with factory equipment to drive fuel pressure up, based on engine load instead of just a fixed graph. The advantage is that it not only saves the fuel system from constant excessive pressure, but it will, also, retain factory-like driveablity with substantially better top-end power, lower EGTs due to proper fuel atomization, and better fuel mileage. It’s designed to work in conjunction with factory parts and not cause any premature wear or failure and best of all it offers in-cab on-the-fly adjustability.

Elite Diesel Engineering
Item: Wastegate Kit for 6.4L Power Strokes
Price: $950
Contact: elitedieselengineering.com, (866) 631-8518

EDE_wastegateThe Elite Diesel Engineering Wastegate Kit allows for the removal of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) coolers from 6.4L Power Strokes. The kit utilizes the existing EGR exhaust port to incorporate an external wastegate to allow control of high exhaust backpressure. The 6.4L engine was designed to use EGR as a wastegate of sorts and has 25% EGR flow at max power. For peak performance EGR is not desired and with many tuning programs the EGR is turned off. With the EGR turned off the exhaust backpressure jumps to overly high levels resulting in lost power and un-needed stress on engine components. This kit is recommended for all power levels but becomes a necessity when power gains exceed 300hp. Kit includes all necessary components to eliminate EGR coolers from vehicle. See more options for upgrades and kit requirements on Elite’s website.
