The Evolving Diesel Engine

Diesel engines have come a long way since the mid-90s. The key to diesel’s evolution has been the advancement of new clean diesel technologies. Today’s advanced renewable diesel fuels have built on the diesel engine’s and emission control system’s near-zero emissions across all applications. Plus, these fuels enhance diesel performance, maintain efficiency over other energy sources, and ensure long-term suitability for sustainability goals.

Diesel EGR Coolers

View Full Product Listing http://ecatalog.smpcorp.com/bwd/#/searchparts/searchText/diesel egr cooler?type=p&search=s

EGR coolers use engine coolant to reduce exhaust gas temperatures before the gas is recirculated through the intake system. Reducing exhaust gas temperatures is critical for reducing NOx emissions. Plus, engines that run with higher EGR temperature don’t adequately cool the combustion, which can reduce the life expectancy of the EGR valve, engine valves, and head gaskets.

But not all EGR coolers are the same. The original equipment EGR cooler’s fin-and-tube-style design is prone to clogging and leaking. Additionally, many aftermarket EGR coolers feature various tube designs that do not provide the necessary cooling. Providing a superior alternative to both designs, We're proud to offer an EGR cooler with an upgraded 20 spiral tube design. Take a look at our DEK1, for example:

Parts for Contaminated Ford 6.7L Engines

Due to a design flaw, the Ford® Power Stroke® 6.7L diesel engine is prone to contamination, which damages the entire fuel system. We’re proud to offer premium replacements for parts throughout the fuel system that are affected by contamination.

Diesel Glow Plugs

Diesel engines use compression to induce combustion, unlike gasoline engines, which use spark plugs. When diesel engines are cold, however, compression is enhanced by the introduction of a pre-heater, known as a glow plug. Once activated, the glow plug, which has coiled wiring in its tip, flares up and emits an intense electrical heat that warms the combustion chamber and assists compression during a cold-start. It can also be used for post heating, which can improve fuel and emission performance.

With BWD's Diesel Glow Plug installed, startup time will be reduced. Plus, when the engine does start, there will be less smoke and reduced emissions. That’s because our glow plug has an improved tip design.

PMD Relocation Kits

On Stanadyne DS4 electronic fuel injection pumps used on all 1994-2002 6.5L GM trucks and vans, the OE pump-mounted driver (PMD) module is mounted directly to the fuel injection pump. This location creates two problems. The first is inefficiency. If a PMD module attached to a fuel injection pump needs to be serviced or replaced, you need to reach the fuel injection pump, which is an extremely timeconsuming,labor-intensive repair. The second problem is that the location on the fuel injection pump subjects the PMD to excessive heat, a known cause of this high failure part.

Our PMD Relocation Kits provide a solution to both problems. If you install the kit upfront when installing the fuel injection pump, you’ll save significant time when diagnosing and replacing the PMD module in the future. As for the heat-related failure, our remote-mount PMD Kit allows you to relocate the PMD, which will help improve service life because of increased airflow around the module, thereby keeping it cooler.

How BWD's Engineering Helps Eliminate Common 6.0L Failures

During our revamped remanufacturing process, our engineers manually examine hundreds of component parts for consistency in critical wear points to make sure the right components get replaced every time. On top of that, they've also engineered improvements to common 6.0L failures, such as housing leaks:

The Backstory

Original 6.0L high pressure oil pumps
are designed with 
a check ball.

The Problem

Due to a flawed OE design, the check ball
can easily become displaced, leading to
housing leaks and part failure.

Our Solution

We replace the check ball housings
with a new casting that has a threaded
plug to 
ensure proper sealing and
eliminate the original problem.

"Blue Spring" Fuel Pressure Regulator Upgrade Kit

Our "Blue Spring" Fuel Pressure Regulator Upgrade Kit for 6.0L Ford Trucks includes everything needed to rebuild the fuel filter housing, including O-rings, hardware, and a blue spring that increases fuel pressure by 10-15 psi to eliminate potential for injector damage.
