The Cummins ISB straight-6 diesel engines are legendary for their reliability, tuneability, and overall power potential. In recent years, this workhorse has been boosted from nearly 600 lb-ft of torque to over 850 lb-ft. Simple tunes can net increases of over 250 lb-ft of torque. With increased power levels, the stock clutch quickly becomes inadequate for even basic driving, leading many enthusiasts to install an aftermarket clutch system — which historically results in drivability compromises. Centerforce developed the Diesel Twin clutch kit to eliminate common compromises such as stiff pedal feel, rough engagement and annoying noise.
