The installation of a Fuel Rail Plug will replace your OEM fuel release valve without having to shim it with washers.
Aftermarket performance tuners often require increased fuel rail pressures that cause the fuel rail release valve to open. The appearance of trouble codes P00087 and P1011 are a sign of the OEM fuel rail pressure release valve has opened. The installation of a Fuel Rail Plug will eliminate the valve, which allows the required fuel pressure to be maintained to the rail and injectors. The installation of a Fuel Rail Plug prevents the power level drop and the associated trouble codes from appearing with a check engine light warning.
What are the benefits of installing a Fuel Rail Plug in my Diesel Engine?
The installation of a Fuel Rail Plug or Race Plug allows your CP3 Fuel Injection Pump to maintain higher fuel pressures in the fuel rail. The higher the fuel injection pressure, the better the diesel fuel atomization being injected into the cylinder. Improved atomization of the fuel diesel leads to an improvement in the air-fuel mixture and increased combustion performance. With the improved combustion of the air-fuel mixture comes better engine performance, higher power levels, and reduced emissions.
The main benefit of Diesel Fuel today's Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel.
The problem with diesel fuel is that it does not easily become a vapor. This is one of the main reasons why the installation of a fuel rail plug can increase engine efficiency in your diesel engine.
For diesel fuel to mix well with the incoming air charge, the following items are required:
The installation of a Fuel Rail Plug combined with improved Engine Tuning provides dramatic improvements in all four of these characters.
The increased fuel rail pressure provided by the Fuel Rail Plug provides the following benefits in your Diesel Engine:
What Is Diesel Fuel Volatility?
The Volatility level refers to how easily the diesel fuel will vaporize. It affects how easily you can start your engine, warm it up, and how well it runs. Diesel fuel comes in two basic grades one, On-Road or #2 Diesel, and the other is Off-Road diesel fuel each, with different volatility levels. Automobiles and large trucks run the 2-D grade Ultra-Low Sulfur diesel fuel. The lower volatility of diesel than gasoline results in emissions lower in carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons, although cold weather makes diesel engines more difficult to start.
What Is The Diesel Fuel Flash Point?
Flashpoint refers to the lowest temperature at which a fuel will vaporize and ignite. The Flashpoint and Volatility very inversely. The lower the flashpoint, the higher the volatility and the increased power output created by diesel fuel.
Gasoline has a higher volatility than diesel, so it contains lower power levels.
