PRLog - Oct. 19, 2011 - ARVADA, Colo. -- The heart of the late model Dodge and GM diesel fuel system is the CP3 high-pressure injection pump. The pump is responsible for supplying the injectors with over 25,000 PSI pressure, which is where much of the power capability of these trucks stems from. The factory CP3 pump, however, is only capable of producing about 600 horsepower while maintaining desired pressure and reliability. Beyond that point, pressure drops and fuel atomization becomes poor. This results in higher exhaust gas temperatures, reduced power, and decreased performance. ATS’ Twin CP3 Fuel System adds a secondary injection pump, along with other hardware, to maintain needed fuel volume. A number of features and recent refinements set the ATS Twin CP3 System apart from the competition.
An updated kit for the Dodge Cummins kit is being released which both reinforces and refines the kit. A new mounting bracket and idler pulley will be included with the kit and will fit older versions of the kit (using the sheet metal pump bracket). The new bracket improves fitment and reliability. First, the new idler increases belt tension and contact area with the billet CP3 pulley, ensuring consistent performance in ultra-high horsepower applications. This will keep the pump spinning under high loads and high RPM, where the belt has the possibility of stretching and losing contact with the additional pump pulley. Second, with the increased tension, the screech often heard when turning off a running motor, is eliminated. This is a great refinement to the kit improving fit and finish. Third, the new idler pulley routes the belt away from the power steering reservoir, which could contact the newer cylindrical reservoir found on later-model trucks. And finally, the new bracket replaces the original pump support bracket improving reliability and durability. When used in conjunction with the new fabricated CP3 mount, these design elements have proven to be a rock-solid solution.
