Diesel Power Cool Hose
Posted October 1, 2006

The Cool Hose, designed and built exclusively by Diesel Power Products, is a great new cold-air intake hose. This hose connects the air intake system to the turbocharger inlet for '03-'06 third generation Dodge trucks equipped with 5.9L Cummins engines. The Cool Hose features four layers of webbing for strength with a completely smooth interior silicone hose with longer radius bends than the factory hose. The Cool Hose also insulates your cool intake air from heat transfer from underhood heat, keeping your intake air as cool as possible.

If you are looking for a great compact fire extinguisher, look no further. JEG's High Performance now carries the H3R Performance MaxOut and HalGuard lines of premium fire extinguishers in its Columbus, Ohio, retail stores and on its website at H3R Performance provides the automotive aftermarket with high-quality, UL-listed fire extinguishers that are made in the USA. MaxOut extinguishers contain an effective dry chemical agent. HalGuard "clean agent" extinguishers are unique new offerings that do not leave a messy residue -- desirable when protecting classic collector, high-performance, tuner, and race cars. Both extinguishers are effective on flammable liquid fires and do not conduct electricity back to the operator -- two important considerations when dealing with the types of fires most likely to occur in an automotive environment. Both units are packaged in rechargeable red or chrome-plated bottles and are available in a 1- or 2.5-pound versions.
