Seems Our Open demeanor and lack of Stressing Grammer/Spelling ECT, Members Come First and holding Respect as our Most important feature ..... Weeds Out Most of the things that everyone hates about web forums .

That and we have Games.... Prizes....Videos ...And More ...LOL

I will honestly say this is probably the finest run forum I have ever had the pleasure to post in. Six months ago I knew nothing about diesel trucks. (now I know a little bit more than nothing) With guys helping out and answering the same questions over and over again with out losing patience is truly remarkable. I love reading about different ideas and different bombing tecniques (bombing a word i knew nothing about and six months ago now a word my wife wishes i never found out about) that you can apply to your truck. So to all that have helped me and to all that will help me I would like to say thank you.

ATTN 24V Newbies !!!! This is a Must !!!! EVERYONE AGREES !

NOTE: IM NOT A VENDOR AND HAVE NOTHING TO GAIN , But seeing all these Vp44 dead from newbies is terrible exspecally when 90% of these failure could of been avoided .........

ATTN : If you have a 24V Cummins and No Fuel Pressure gauge Your Chancing YOUR RIG and Rolling The Dice every time you drive it ,

A Fuel Pressure Gauge is A Permenate Stable in Every 24V Cummins Truck (1998.5-2002)

This is fact the Lift Pump WILL GO OUT maybe 10,000 miles maybe 50,000 miles but it is Going to go out its ~ $165 When it goes out ( Not IF) You will not know it without a Fuel Pressure Gauge and the ~$1300 Vp44 Injecton pump will work its heart out to deliver its own fuel and it cant keep that up long ! and it will go out and be very Costly , Also if you have added any Fuel Mods you stand a risk of too Much Fuel Pressure and Killing your VP44

All this is True and it sucks but We as 24V'ers can do something about it !

The First Thing is Monitoring so you know the vital signs ! We here @ Cummins Forum Have Gotten Together with Nate at and he has set up a Fuel pressure Kit that Mounts with a steering collum mount so if you wish to add more gauges in the future you can get a piller mount and have room for 3 additional Gauges, What with all the options and mounts and people wanting to wait for the rest of there gauges and ect,,,, before they know it they have big problems !

So This kit Will be Self Suffcient and will not need redone or changed to accomendate future modifycations !

Kit includes: 0-30 psi gauge, isolator, steering column single gauge mount, and required mounting hardware.

Every Thing you Need !

Price: $165 shipped to your door.
You Can Choose Either a DiPricol or an Isspro Gauge !!!!!

Dont Pass this up this can save your thousands of dollars

This is the best thing for Performance And Reliabillity you can do for your Rig ... Rather it be a daily driver or a Bombed Beast This is a Must Have !

For More Information and to Order Your Kit Please Visit ......

A Huge Thanks To CDP for Putting this Kit Together For Us !

Newbies Guide to Excellence

Only the facts .

__________________________________________________ _____

Filtration :

Only Use Fleet Guard (Cummins Filtration) Oil and Fuel Filters

The cheapest place you can get them is Schieds

There cheaper than local auto part stores even with shipping
__________________________________________________ _____


Only get the BHAF from

Its about 1/3 the price of NAPA and its the exact same filter it comes in a NAPA box

You can use the 42790 air filter as an aftermarket filter for Dodge's 5.9 diesel.
Thats the one !
