also ported and fitted with Manning pushrods and Smith Brothers bridges and trunnions. The powerplant also uses ARP studs throughout, with 14mm main studs (and a girdle) down low, and 625 Custom Age studs to clamp the cylinder head onto the block.
For fuel, Ring went pure overkill for when a new deckplate engine is installed. Beginning with a Waterman lift pump that’s belt driven, fuel is transferred to an intense triple CP3 kit with XP pumps from Industrial Injection. The injectors were also supplied by Industrial Injection, and are 400% over Cobra units. A factory Dodge ECM controls the engine, and Ring says with the huge injectors he hasn’t even gotten past Tune 1 yet.
With all the compound turbo setups out there you might think that twins or triples would be a no-brainer, but that’s not so.
The 5.9L Cummins in Jared Ring’s Ram race truck is quite intimidating, with a 103mm Keating Machine turbocharger and triple Industrial Injection CP3 pumps. With some tuning from Ryan Milliken at Hardway Performance, the engine makes an estimated 1,600 horsepower at around 4,500 rpm. An oversize Spearco intercooler chills the intake charge down to manageable levels. The intercooler has also been reinforced with bars in the tanks that keep them from blowing apart. Famous for its tractor pulling turbochargers, Keating Machine created a ball bearing center section HX82 that feeds a wild 80 psi of boost into the Cummins engine.
