We Love the 6.7L Cummins!



The Cummins crowd is a unique bunch.  There's so much history around the brand; over the last two decades, the 5.9L and 6.7L Cummins variants found in Dodge/Ram trucks essentially created a big part of the diesel performance universe.  Some folks like to say the Cummins engines sound like they're straight out of a tractor, but we know better - these engines came from a company that is known for making diehard diesel equipment.  You can hear echoes of the 'big brother' engines when you listen to a Cummins-powered truck.  You could almost say Cummins is a religion to some.

We've always admired Dodge/Ram trucks.  We've got employees driving them into work, some of our staff had them growing up, and at least one drove a couple of Cummins-powered trucks around a 40,000 acre cattle ranch for several years.  Beyond that, we've seen them do amazing things in contests like the Diesel Power Challenge.

We were interested to hear if Cummins owners were having any EGR cooler issues, and it turned out that yes, some are.  The causes and symptoms are a bit different than Power Stroke EGR coolers.  It seems clogging can be an issue with 6.7L Cummins EGR coolers, and there's a factory recommendation that they are removed and cleaned out every 67,500 miles.

We're gonna go out on a limb here and say no one really wants to remove their EGR cooler every 67,500 miles.

We've now designed and tested BulletProof EGR coolers for the 6.7L that feature our H-CORE technology.  If you're not familiar with H-CORE, check out this short animation - it really provides a quick, easy-to-understand explanation of why it's better than other designs.

Our EGR coolers tend to do well where others will clog up, so we aren't going to recommend any kind of cleaning procedure.  That's one less thing to worry about for truck owners.

We're excited to start supporting the Cummins community.  Everyone knows we offer high-quality upgrades for Power Stokes...now it's time to offer the same to our bighorned pals.
