Holy Swoosh Batman, DuraStroke St I Rvw

Got the Mad Baby-P installed and running yesterday.
After fixing an intake boot leak and almost through the learning process I can't believe the power and drivability of the Turbo and Eric's XXX Tune.

I need to borrow or buy an EDGE ECT so i can monitor EGT's the Scangauge II boost has hit 30 PSI twice during a little spirited driving.

First impressions is it's quiet, the engine, the turbo the Truck everything works so much better together, in general it feels 1000's of pounds lighter.

It can hit 50 - 60 MPH without ANY effort whatsoever, and maintain it with 10% throttle, literally noting barely any touch of throttle and it's at 70.

Sitting at Outback curbside for 20 minutes in 95 deg heat the ect and eft dropped to 188 189 from 193 194 sitting at stop lights in traffic the truck acts and feels better than it has over the past 12 years I've owned it.

I don't know if it's 500 RWHP or 480 or 420 and really don't care, i'm not sure it could do the 1/4 in 13 flat or 15.1 and don't care to learn, i do know it's not for sale even if offered what i paid for it new in 2005.


My tally to Perfection.....
600 155 Warren Stock Nozzle Injectors
700 Stg. 1 Baby-P
400 ARP's
125 XXX Inov. Diesel Tune
150 Sin. ELC & Filter
750 Lbr & Int. Parts
2725.00

The look and feel of hitting 100 MPH in 7 sec. PRICELESS.

All that matters is if you're happy with the turbo and your truck and it sounds like you are. Another happy MTW customer. Great to hear

Thanks for the review! I will post a review of mine when I get it. How's the noise in the cab sound? Whistle? Whine? Or Droan?

They are probably giving him more fuel

jk

Is the turbo able to clean up the 155s completely?

I wouldn't think there would be much of a difference in peak power and torque, but there would be more low end power and especially torque, and I bet the turbo would spool faster.
