SEMA Members Unite to Dress Nissan’s Diesel Pickup in All-New Aftermarket Gear
What you see here is the world’s first fully customized ’16 Nissan Titan XD. Members of the Specialty Equipment Market Association built it after they were given special early access to the diesel-powered truck. By attending a members-only measuring session at the SEMA Garage, aftermarket employees were able to get up close and personal with the pickup more than seven months before it would go on sale to the public. With firsthand information available, 14 companies joined the “Measured for Success” project and were able to get this Titan XD completed in time to be displayed for everyone to see at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here’s how the truck is equipped:
Feeding more air to the compound turbochargers on the all-new 5.0L Cummins V-8 diesel engine is a Banks Power Ram-Air cold-air-intake system. It features a high-flow conical filter inside a sealed airbox, along with a feed tube that’s straighter and smoother than the factory part. Spent gases exit the truck through MagnaFlow’s Pro Series mandrel-bent, 5-inch, stainless steel exhaust, which replaces all the factory parts from the diesel particulate filter-back. It also includes a polished tip with vents to keep the output cool when the DPF is regenerated.
