A More Durable Degas. Ford Powerstroke 6.0L Aluminum Degas Bottle R&D, Part 1: Factory Bottle Evaluation

We’re back for some new 6.0L product development! It has been a few months since the release of our recent intake elbow and thermostat housing, and our team is itching to start a new project on our 6.0L Powerstroke shop truck. This time, we’re aiming to create an aluminum degas bottle that would provide additional cooling system reliability. Within the past year, we’ve increased our focus on development of aluminum expansion tanks, and we’ve brought to market some unique tanks that provide improved durability and style. One of our recent projects was a tank for the 2015+ Ford Mustang, which features … Continue Reading ››

The high-temperature unit quickly became a customer favorite as a reliable way to improve engine operation, in-cabin heat, and fuel mileage. These benefits are particularly useful in the cold-weather months. Our low-temperature thermostat offers a lower recovery temperature compared to the factory unit, which can help keep coolant temperatures regulated during towing or when … Continue Reading ››
