Abbotsford, British Columbia is the home for BD Diesel Performance. Founded in 1972 as Valley Fuel Injection, the company made a name for itself in 1989 with the first exhaust brake for the growing diesel pickup truck market. Valley Fuel Injection and BD Diesel Performance are now one and the same, with with eight specialty divisions that focus on diesel power train components: Fuel Injection Calibration Department, Exhaust Brake Manufacturing, Electronic Circuit Design and Assembly, Transmission and Torque Converter Design and Remanufacturing, Turbocharger Design, Installation and Research and Development.
Once diesel pickups started to gain popularity, a whole new exciting world of performance began to open up. BD Diesel got in on the ground floor all the way back in 1989, making the first-ever exhaust brakes for the growing market in diesel trucks. Today, BD has a full line of power-building parts for diesels, many with easy bolt-on installation.
- Air Intakes and Components – Dyno tests and real-world experience prove that you can see as much as a 20% bump in horsepower, torque and fuel economy from enhanced air flow through the intake. BD markets air intake kits and filters for top performance, giving better flow and volume of air.
- Computer Chips and Performance Modules – It’s easy to change fuel/air mixtures, transmission shift points, advance and other performance parameters by reprograming your truck’s engine control computer. Hook directly in through your OBD-II module; some kits even allow on-the-fly adjustability from inside the cab.
- Transmission and Driveline – If your truck gets subjected to severe usage like off-roading or towing, you’ll want to beef up your transmission with a deeper pan, transmission fluid coolers, bypass tube eliminators or an aftermarket torque converter from BD Diesel. BD also makes a manual shift kit for shorter shift throws and more precise shifts.
- Gauges – Keep tabs on oil temp, transmission temp, exhaust gas temps and other important performance parameters with gauges from BD. Choose from analog gauges or electronic multi-gauge.
