    Hi all, I am considering of putting in a superior shift kit since I have the valve body out for a detent repair but have some questions. But for some background, the truck is a 2003 ram 2500 with the 5.9L 24v cummins with the 48re, all stock, no mods whatsoever. It has just over 400,000...

    I bought a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins 5.9l 24v Extended Cab and I have some questions if anyone could help me. 1. Would a s&b cold air intake be a good choice for a upgrade instead of the original stock one. 2. If I were to upgrade from the stock turbo, what should i look for? I dont really...

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen, For a week now I've finally had my truck back up and running. Had a rail relief failure plaguing me. Ran great starts every day, no loss of power. Runs better than ever. However starting Thursday morning wouldn't crank. No codes, no lights, no fire. She all...

    Can someone help me figure out the operation of the oil cooler beside the fuel filter. From what I can make out, it looks like the transmission oil goes into this heat exchanger and then into the trans cooler infront of the rad and then back into the transmission. What confuses me is I’m reading...

    I recently purchased this truck and it came with a fuel knock. At home I found that the engine had a lot of metal in the oil so I put in a long block. in the process of putting in the long block, I put on all new mechanical parts and all new sensors. When I crank it up it runs fine until it gets...
  8. 3rd Gen. Non-Powertrain
    I recently acquired a 3500 5.9 with the 6 speed Manual trans. Truck runs like a champ in the city but will almost instantly rise in engine temp when towing up the mountain. Will getting a bigger intercooler help? Or is there a part i should check before making that purchase. Any suggestions...

    I have a cold air intake off of a 6.7 2007 Cummins. I bought it off a wrecked truck for cheap so I didn’t look into it too much. That’s my mistake, everything looked like it would fit correctly until it came time to put the sensor in mine is a 2006 5.9. My question is does anytime know of an...
  10. 3rd Gen. Powertrain
    I recently did a manual swap on my 2003 Ram 3500 with the 5.9. Everything went well except for the computer. The truck runs and drives but the horn is going off and the lights are flashing. First gear also cuts fuel at 2000rpm. I have purchased a smarty S06 tuner but have not connected it yet. I...
  11. 03 - 07 3rd Gen 5.9 Liter General Discussion
    Hi everyone, brand new here and first post on here. I’ve been reading into tons of posts from 1st gen to 5th gen but decided 3rd gen would be the right fit for me. Only issue is where I live they are few and far between. Either high mileage with light rust. Or low mileage with lots of rust...

    Everywhere I look on the internet some shop is getting railed by the EPA. I mean just two days ago XDP was hit with a 1.1 million dollar fine for selling devices "that, when installed, bypass, defeat, or render inoperative EPA-approved emission controls and harm air quality". I don't agree with...

    Tried searching and didn’t find anything on them. Does anyone have any experience or opinions on D&J crate motors? Longevity, build quality, price, or other opinions? Looking at some of the built motors in general. Also any opinions on other companies with built crates to steer towards, check...

    Anybody have a good tutorial on checking for BOOST LEAKS? How to find TDC on 06 5.9 etc? I'm not going to make a 4in cap, but I am going to just buy one and pressurize with about 30lb and use some bubbles. BUT I dont know how to find TDC. Do I have to take the head cover off and check valve...
  15. 3rd Gen. Performance Parts Discussion
    I got an 03 5.9 Cummins with minor upgrades. I.e, cold air Intake, intake Horn, built trans (built for about 500+hp) and a 4 inch straight pipe. I’ve been wanting to upgrade the turbo for a while now but I’ve also thought about getting it tuned and I’m stuck on what I should do. For the turbo I...

    I was going about 65, and stepped on it. I heard a huge “POOF” sound and lost all boost. Edge CTS monitor is reading no codes. What could this be? Boost is only going to 1psi and then back too 0.

    2005 5.9 24v common rail, I need help diagnosing my oil leak/ oil burning issue, motor has 0 blow by, that’s a sign of relief as I do not think it could be rings or pistons, little to no play on turbo, 0 leaking oil in turbo, pulled valve cover off, smoke coming from the right side where the...
