Want to increase your diesel fuel economy?

March 5, 2012

Fass lift pumps are a great way to increase your engine performance and diesel fuel economy by removing air and water from your fuel. It is well known that as your truck moves the diesel fuel in your tank is constantly in motion. This creates multiple problems with fuel delivery to your engine. While the injection pump draws fuel from the tank it’s creating a vacuum that produces fuel vapor and as the vehicle is in motion it creates fuel vapor that is mixed with the air. Resolve that issue by installing a FASS Lift Pump from Parley’s Diesel Performance and as a added bonus you will get higher power and reduce injector tip erosion. Typical No. 2 Diesel Fuel already consists of about 10% air. That issue is compounded by dirt and other debris that can be found in a diesel fuel tank. A FASS Lift Pump will address these issues head on by meticulously filtering out such problematic air & vapor (along with other contaminants in the fuel) before it reaches your truck’s injectors. Knowing about these latent dangers in the fuel at the diesel pump, can you really go on feeding it untreated to your truck? We at Parleys Diesel Performance strongly advise against it… and believe a FASS diesel lift pump is an excellent diesel performance upgrade choice. Get the most out of your diesel engine and your fuel dollar with a FASS fuel pump from Parleys Diesel Performance.

AFE Stage 2 SI Cold Air Intake Install Video: 2008 Ford 6.4L Powerstroke

November 11, 2011

Parley’s Diesel Performance carries all the top brands of diesel intakes and diesel cold air filters like those from Advanced Flow Engineering, or AFE as they are commonly called.  Over the past few years AFE diesel intakes have become recognized as some of the best cold air intakes available.   Many AFE cold air intakes have an open or exposed filter element, but for certain vehicle applications AFE has designed an intake system with a fully enclosed filter.  A good example would be the sealed Ford diesel cold air intake for the 6.4L Powerstroke trucks built from 2008 through 2010.

AFE’s Stage 2 Si ( sealed intake) for the 6.4L Powerstroke shows signficant improvements in airflow and real power increases.  Dyno testing of the AFE Stage 2 Intake shows gains of 28 Horsepower and 54 ft. lbs. of Torque at 2000 RPM.  That’s a pretty significant increase in power to a truck that already makes big numbers from just adding a cold air intake system.  The increase in airflow is also improved by 41% over the stock airbox, pushing an additional 65 CFM (stock is about 160 CFM).

The AFE Stage 2 Si intakes also help maintain a factory appearance by utilizing a fully sealed commercial grade air box that replaces the entire OEM air box.  Part of what makes this particular Stage 2 Si unit so effective is the use of a built in ram-air scoop which forces more cold air into the filter area.  And last but not least, like with all true diesel performance intakes, adding a large, conical filter with pleated ridges increases the surface area of the filter, allowing for more air to be filtered more quickly.

Dr. Performance Is Out Of Business – Now What?

September 26, 2011

Because we still get phone calls every day asking for information about Dr. Performance power modules, we wanted to let you know that they went out of business in the summer of 2011.  Questions we are most often asked include “How do I get warranty work on my Dr. Performance module that I bought a few years ago?” and “Do you know how we can get in contact with Dr. Performance?”  The unfortunate truth is that they are completely out of business, haven’t answered their phone in almost six months, and any repair work on a damaged or faulty Dr. Performance module at this point is impossible.

The most frequent question we hear from customers interested in a diesel performance module next is “Since Dr. Performance modules aren’t available, are there any other manufacturers of diesel power modules?”  Thankfully we can answer in the affirmative that there are several companies that make diesel performance modules that have the same beneficial characteristics that Dr. Performance modules had.  Some of the reasons Dr. Performance modules were so popular included improved power without increased operating temperature, they were great for towing, and they gave substantial diesel fuel mileage improvements.   They were also widely used as a trustworthy pressure box by diesel owners who wanted to “stack chips.” It didn’t hurt that the majority of them didn’t leave a footprint in the vehicle’s ECM because they were simply rail pressure boxes that uninstall quickly and cleanly from the rail pressure sensor harness.

Depending on the diesel truck you drive, we recommend a power module from two different manufacturers.  If you’re looking for improved 6.4L Ford Powerstroke performance, we really like the TS Performance Power Play MP-8.  On the 6.4L Powerstroke, the MP-8 is a fuel pressure only power module that adds up to 100 Horsepower and installs in just minutes by plugging in to a 15 pin fuel sensor connector.   Just like the Dr. Performance module, the Power Play MP-8 doesn’t increase your diesel exhaust temperatures and most users report gains of 2-4 mpg in fuel economy.

TS Performance Power Play MP-8

For common rail owners looking for improved Cummins diesel performance or Duramax diesel performance, the Digi CRBB Power Module from DieselPower has quickly become our favorite choice here at Parleys Diesel Performance.  Backed by an unheard-of 3 year manufacturer warranty and built from some of the best electronic components available, the DieselPower Digi CRBB is easy to install, doesn’t leave a “footprint” in the truck’s computer, can be adjusted quickly to any desired power level, and adds a decent amount of horsepower.

DieselPower Digi CRBB Common Rail Pressure Box

Because the Digi CRBB is a fuel rail pressure module it can be “stacked” with a Smarty programmer on the Dodge Ram Cummins diesels yielding loads of power that you almost have to feel to believe.  Operating temperatures are kept down, and if you don’t drive the truck like you stole it fuel economy can be improved significantly.    The Digi CRBB is also effective for “stacking chips” when using EFI-LIVE tuning on your Chevy or GMC Duramax diesel.  If you have any questions about these or other options for your diesel truck, call us and we’ll be happy to help.

2011 2.0L VW Jetta TDI Exhaust System Upgrade

August 26, 2011

Parley’s Diesel Performance is pleased to announce that AFE has released their stainless steel Catalytic Converter-Back exhaust system for the 2011 Jetta TDI.  AFE had previously made available the same style system for the 2011 Golf 2.0L TDI exhaust and all the early reviews on that system have been positive, so we expect good things for 2011 Jetta TDI owners who choose this system to upgrade their cars.

The exhaust note is a bit throatier than stock, and the dual 3 inch double-walled polished T-304 Stainless steel tips look really clean and aggressive.  The exhaust system is fully mandrel-bent as you would expect, and the hangers line up well for a good clean installation.

2011 Jetta TDI Exhaust System AFE49-46401

2011 Jetta TDI Exhaust System AFE49-46401

Many cat-back diesel exhaust systems don’t require any cutting of the stock pipes for installation, but this kit does.   It’s impossible to clear the rear axle when removing the OEM exhaust without making the cut.  We just wanted you to know.  If you’re interested in upgrading the performance of your 2011 Jetta TDI (including Sportwagens), we recommend pairing this TDI exhaust upgrade with AFE’s 2.0L Jetta TDI Intake system and a 2011 TDI Performance Module from Diesel Power.

One last note – this exhaust system is legal in all 50 U.S. states because it retains all of your emissions control equipment.

2011 VW Jetta & Golf TDI Performance Cold Air Intake Upgrade

June 14, 2011

Parley’s Diesel Performance is pleased to announce that Advanced Flow Engineering (AFE) has given the go ahead for their VW TDI performance cold air intake kit on the 2011 2.0L Jetta and Golf.  Advertised dyno results are showing an increase of 10 Horsepower at 3150 RPM and a nice torque increase of 23 foot lbs. at 3050 RPM.  This is the same cold air intake that we’ve had great success with over the past year and a half on the 2009 and 2010 2.0 Liter VW Jetta TDI.

This particular intake is what AFE calls their “Stage 2 Si” or “sealed intake.”  The sealed air box installs cleanly, looks sharp, and is quieter than an open box design diesel cold air intake.

AFE 2.0L VW Jetta & Golf TDI Intake 54-81711

Air flow is increased by a remarkable 56% over the stock air intake system.  Like most AFE intakes, this 2.0L TDI Cold Air Intake comes with your choice of filter media.  This kit comes with either their Pro Dry S filter or their Pro 5R.  The Pro Dry S is made from synthetic material.  100% washable and reusable, it doesn’t require oiling after cleaning, making it a highly convenient choice.  The Pro 5R is also washable and reusable, but the oiled cotton gauze requires oiling after each cleaning.  Flow rates for the Pro 5 R are slightly higher.
