EGR-Compliant S300 Turbo/Manifold Kit 07.5-18 Ram 6.7L Cummins

When discussing the top movers for Smeding Diesel, this is a product that cannot be left off of the list. Smeding saw the issues with the factory electronics on the stock turbochargers for the 6.7L Cummins and said, “Let’s make something that will be better and more durable.” This kit comes with everything a Cummins owner needs to not only replace a broken part leaving them left on the roadside, but it also can be a replacement for those looking to simply upgrade.

An S300 turbocharger is a tried and true piece. After years of being on virtually every platform, the S300 is where truck owners go for reliable horsepower and extended longevity. This is a comprehensive kit that includes a heavy-duty, two-piece T4 divided replacement exhaust manifold that will replace the brittle, stock unit and because of its thicker, more durable construction, it will also retain the exhaust heat inside driving that turbocharger harder. This will result in throttle response and improved output. On top of the improved performance and lengthened lifespan, this manifold is also fully EGR-compliant with provisions ready for a EGR system to mount.

Among an upgraded, non-electronic turbocharger and new exhaust manifold, this kit also includes the necessary mounting hardware and fresh gaskets to ensure a snug fit to the cylinder head and a leak-free installation. What if you’re looking for a specific size of turbocharger, though? Good news, this is a versatile kit that allows consumers to make that decision with multiple sizes available on the compressor wheel and heavy-duty or standard thrust bearing selections.

Choose the Smeding Diesel S300 Turbo Kit for your diesel engine and experience the benefits of improved performance, reliability, and efficiency. With its advanced features and customizable options, this kit delivers higher boost potential and reduced EGT while retaining factory components for easy installation.

Knowing that, Smeding Diesel faced this issue head-on by coming up with an extensive solution that allows Power Stroke lovers to either prevent a failure by replacing it or fixing a down truck.

Drop-In S362/65 Turbocharger 03-07 Dodge/Ram 5.9L Cummins

Closing out our top three movers list for Smeding Diesel is their drop-in, stock replacement unit for the 2003-2007 Dodge/Ram 5.9L Cummins. Due to the popularity of modifying these trucks, the factory Holset turbocharger that these trucks are equipped with aren’t enough. They come with a HE351CW which is perfect for a stock truck, but at the end of the day, they are small. When upgrading these trucks, this is the first bottle neck when it comes to increasing output.

Although the idea of having a tight exhaust housing to enhance spool works on stock applications, the fact of the matter is we don’t leave things alone. Good news, though. Smeding Diesel offers this completely drop-in piece that not only allows your truck to drive like a stock turbo with quick-spooling characteristics, but it also supports more horsepower! This particular upgrade features a 62mm compressor wheel paired with an appropriately matched 65mm turbine.

For trucks looking to be within that stock to 500 horsepower range, this is the turbo for you. Within that range, you’re still able to tow and daily drive as you were. Being versatile as per usual, Smeding offers this turbo with the 12cm (.70 A/R) housing allowing you to get excellent driving characteristics. Another feature to share is the twin-scroll divided T3 wastegated housing that comes preset to 40 PSI (User adjustable). This turbo will NOT use the factory wastegate control valve on the 04.5-07 5.9L trucks and the use of a boost fooler or tuning is required.

Since you’ve already made the right choice in turbo upgrades for your 5.9L, all that is left now is to toss this upgrade on with ease and get to enjoying that truck like you did on the first day.
