  SPRINTER™ TURBO RESONATOR ELIMINATOR
By James F. Riordan
 
The Turbo Resonator Eliminator completely eliminates the failures caused by the original MercedesT plastic resonator. In 2006 Our local Dodge Sprinter dealership came to us with the problematic plastic assembly, which is nothing more than a small muffler like device, and asked us to come up with a solution for their continual failures. Since we also design and manufacture parts for many applications, we provided the solution in three days with our aluminum Billet part. These parts have hundreds of thousands of miles on them with no failures, they do not affect your warranty, and many Dodge dealers are stocking the part Nationwide. According to Dodge Sprinter technicians, many Sprinter-based commercial fleet and RV owners are changing this part before it fails rather than when it fails since it is a not a question of if, only when it will fail.

What our customers say about the Sprinter Turbo Resonator Eliminator

"Hello Jim, Another satisfied customer of your turbo resonator. After my first failure coming home from a southern trip, I ordered your resonator, had it installed on my Gulf Stream Vista Cruiser, MB model, and soon thereafter left for a 6000 mile trip over the Rockies to Yellowstone and then to the National Parks in Utah. Needless to say the climb over the passes on Interstate 70 are a challenge, but all went well and we returned (to State College PA) without any 'limp home' trouble, or any other trouble at that. Thanks for your initiative and imagination solving the Sprinter troubles. "
Don Rung

"For those looking at the Turbo Resonator eliminator, I would have to give it 110% approval. My dad arrived last month as the proud new owner of a View. He brought me up to speed on the issue with the resonator splitting and said he had an aftermarket piece with him to replace it. I mentally had set aside a whole morning to the job, but it only took about 30 minutes. Rarely in the aftermarket world, does a product exceed the mfgr's performance in all aspects without usually sacrificing something. When you pull this out of the box you'll think this is a part for an aircraft or a top fuel dragster, not a diesel RV. It is top quality machining. You can't even begin to compare the factory piece with the one from Riordan. Having dealt with a variety of aftermarket engineering in supercharging and lowering my 94 F150, I frequently seem to run across shortcomings in the aftermarket world, however the Riordan piece is first class. The fit of the Riordan piece was perfect."
Delray Dobbins
Aircraft Mechanic

"Thank you for making a product that works. A friend of mine has an Itasca View, I have the Navion, 2007, and he blew his the first time off the lot. Mine lasted 5,600 miles before it failed. I have ordered one from you for overnight delivery. Thanks for getting me back on the road again."
Lee Davis

"Thank you for taking the time to speak with me regarding the problems I have had with turbo resonators on my 2005 Freightliner Sprinter. I look forward to receiving your resonator eliminator since I have had the plastic resonator replaced three times under warranty over the past two years , in each case when I was out of state on business. Daimler's failure to improve their resonator has caused me time and money and endangered the lives of my wife and myself."
Van Talbert

"I look forward to the peace of mind and not having 3 plastic resonators fail in the first 10,000 miles on my RV."
Larry Oslund

"Jim, it was nice talking to you today, my husband has had his Sprinter van since October 2005 and off hand I believe we have had to purchase 5 possibly 6 (plastic) resonators so I welcome your product with its lifetime warranty."
Jenny Yeargen

"I just purchased your resonator replacement and I'm anxious to restore my faith in my Navion. I have been troubled with this on-going problem that we've had with our 2006 Navion. I have no faith that it will see us through a road trip without a breakdown. In the 2yrs that we've owned it, it has been towed 3 times for the same problem, the turbo resonator blowing out at the seam. The issue has been fixed under warranty at the dealer every time, but we have lost a day's travel/vacation each time and I am tired of it. I can see how this problem can cause an accident with the severe loss of power/speed when it fails. Thanks for your product."
Steve Walcott

"I have had three of these resonators go out in 72k miles and the problem is when it goes out my speed decreases at a very fast rate, this could be dangerous depending on where the outage takes place and what is following me."
Mark Parlee

"I had ordered one before and put it on today. I decided to do my other six Sprinters with them since the installation was so easy and we have had so many problems."

The Sprinter™ Turbo Hose Adapter for Cracked Hoses
By James F. Riordan
 

ADAP-06 - 2002 through early 2007, 2.7 liter 5 Cyl. Inline engine
We consider it an honor that once again Dodge dealers have asked us for a fix. This time, it is for the 2002 to 2007 2.7 liter , 5 cylinder in-line engines intercooler to intake manifold hoses which are cracking and then blowing out at the end of this hose, causing the engines to go into "limp home mode." This hose has a metal fitting "formed" onto the hose where it enters the intake manifold on the top of the driver's side of the engine , (See photo below) which is failing causing cracks to form at the fitting (See photo below). At first, the tiny crack may cause an "occasional" limp home mode problem and then seemingly return to normal. Soon, however, this tiny crack "blows out" and becomes a big crack, putting the engine in limp home mode and ruining your workday or vacation schedule. Now you can eliminate this problem before it starts (no need to wait until the hose fails) with our ADAP-06 which solves the end cracking problems once and for all. (See Photo below) The ADAP-06 typically costs less than replacing the hose, since this hose is sold in a 3 part assembly (please see our Installation PDF below ) The ADAP-06 is being installed by many Dodge dealers and does not affect your warranty.

ADAP-09 - late 2007 through present, 3 liter V6 Turbo diesel engine
We learned from a fleet Dodge dealer about a similar metal hose end failure on the 2007 and up 3 liter V6 and they asked us for a fix. The turbo-to-intercooler hoses AND the intercooler to intake hoses are BOTH cracking and then blowing out at the ends of the hoses, causing the engines to go into "limp home mode." These hoses have a metal fitting "formed" onto the hoses, (See photo 1 below) which are continually failing causing cracks to form at the fitting (See photo 2 below). At first, the tiny crack may cause an "occasional" limp home mode problem and then seemingly return to normal. Soon, however, these tiny cracks "blow out" and become big cracks, putting the engine in limp home mode and ruining your workday or vacation schedule. The most common hose to crack is the drivers' side intercooler-to-intake hose however both hoses are experiencing this failure. Now you can eliminate this problem before it starts (no need to wait until the hose fails) with our ADAP-09 which fits either hose end and solves the end cracking problems once and for all. (See Photo 3 below) Two ADAP-09s cost little more than replacing one blown out hose. (one hose assembly with the metal end can cost $130-$140 or more), and based on our input from Dodge dealership Sprinter techs, we are recommending replacing both of these metal hose ends at the same time on your 2007 to current V6 Sprinter to avoid future problems on the road. We have just introduced our new high pressure clamp which is wider, stronger and has internal shielding to prevent any hose damage. The ADAP-09s do not affect your warranty.

PUNCH 'N DRAIN™
The tool every painter needs

By James F. Riordan

 
INSTRUCTIONS
 
1.) Open can by gently prying up rim of can cover using the end of one handle (See figure 1) while slowly working your way around the entire can until lid is easily removed. Remove the lid.
 
2.) Position punch so that the pointed punch pin is on the top side of the can and is inside the groove that the lid fits into.
 
3.) Gently squeeze the handles together as shown (See figure 1) Use only as much squeezing pressure on the punch handles as is required to puncture the can. The Punch 'N Drain tool is very easy to use and requires only light pressure. With very thin paint or stain, you will not need as many holes.
 
4.) The bottom "die" of the tool automatically aligns the punch properly such that the punched holes are closer to the inside rim for a leakproof reseal of can (See figure 2).
