The latest Summit Racing project is a Ram 2500 Heavy Duty pickup truck equipped with a Cummins 6.7L diesel engine.
But unlike a lot of project builds, the Summit Racing team didn’t start with a showroom-fresh vehicle here. Nope, this 2018 Ram 2500 is already a long haul, high mileage workhorse, with plenty of snow, rain, and dirt under its tires.
So the goal of this series is to show you how a few upgrades, some vital maintenance, and a little bit of elbow grease on a road-weary rig can be a smart alternative to buying an all new truck—and much easier on the wallet too.

As the Ram Revamp series winds down, the Summit Racing team finds itself in a familiar place—under the hood.
Though the Cummins 6.7L diesel is already a very competent and capable engine, the Summit Racing folks found some room for upgrades in both the intake and exhaust system—starting with a Ram-Air intake kit from Banks Power. The revised air system feeds the Cummins with a colder, denser air charge for improved performance, which is always handy in a workhorse tow rig like this 2018 Ram 2500.
Then, the Ram gets an updated MBRP XP exhaust kit to replace the tired, crusty stock setup. Not only does this MBRP system give the Ram a bit more personality, it’s made from extra thick stainless steel for excellent durability over the long haul.
Best of all, these upgrades are something you can do in an afternoon with basic hand tools and maybe a buddy or two. See it all come together in this episode of the Summit Racing Ram Revamp project.
