By the late '90's, vehicle manufacturers were required to produce engines that met stricter emissions requirements than ever before. Cummins answered that call in late 1998 with the Gen II, 24-Valve 5.9L ISB (Intellect System B) engine in the Dodge Ram. The electronically controlled Bosch VP44 injection pump was a state of the art fuel delivery system that pushed the 5.9L 24-Valve engine to 215-235 hp. Problems with the weak factory fuel supply pump are common and can destroy the VP44 injection pump. Fortunately, we can help you solve this issue with a FASS or Airdog fuel pump. A High Output (HO) 245 HP version was released in 2001, and the 2002 HO model was capable of producing an impressive 305 hp from the factory. Electronic tuning opened up a whole new world for performance enthusiasts. A variety of electronic tuners are available that can easily coax an additional 100 hp out of your 5.9L ISB engine. An added benefit to electronic performance tuning is that increases in fuel economy can also be enjoyed. Throw in a cold-air intake kit, a performance exhaust system, and you've got yourself a real beast that is getting better fuel economy than it did when it left the dealership. Factory replacement or performance turbochargers are also available.
