    My isx15 was manufactured in 2016, it's in a 2017 t680. How do I know if my fuel pump has the ceramic plungers or newer titanium?
    I have 450k on the truck, should I replace or rebuild the fuel pump as PM?

    Give your engines serial number to Cummins and ask about it. It’s probably updated I’d I had to guess as around that time my isx was getting the update. I’d check to be sure though.

    Some would say to replace the guts in your fuel pump as preventative maintenance. Regardless of what year it is.
