OK I hate to do this but I'm starting another thread for guys that tow.Why well atleast it is what they want to know and things they can share.
So, I will start with what I know to be true on examples of my testers,turbo,tunes,mpg,and loads.
Because I'm the MADMAN most of the reviews will be with the stage 1 turbo,and combination.But,I still want to here about other turbos and combo's.Like I stated before this is only to help the towing guys make a better decidition on combos,I'm not saying the combos I make are the best,so lets start sharing info.
Ok,Nate a member on this forum has stage 1 turbo,stock injectors in his 2005 f250 ext. cab 4X4.One his thread he stated he towed 11000 lbs for Altanta G.A. to TN smokey mountains.He ran a quadzilla tow tune,EGTS staied in check and averaged 14 mpg highway,mountain ,city with his load.
My friend Bert,the guy I built the 2003 f350 crewcab dually 4X4,also with the stage 1,stock injectors.Bert is alittle crazy and wants to test truck,to the limit.He has alot of things he has done with his truck,but here's the latest.He told me that a friend of his that does industral buisiness needed a load on a triler taken from Memphi to the other side of Alabama.He averaged 70-80 mph the whole trip,hightest EGT to keep that speed was 1170.Hand Cal. fuel usage was 13.3,tune he was running Vivains looney wild,load 23000 lbs.I don't tow much but that seems good to me.
Well,thats it untill I get more reviews for other testers.So, lets hear so more for other guys.
