Im running 175/75s as you know... Im loving my current setup.. It doesnt have a turbo LOL

Gonna be getting a Hybrid by next weekend HOPEFULLY and will keep you updated



EDIT!!!!

I just found out YOU are running the same setup as me before me... I need YOUR coments
Tell me if its too smokey.. please!
I need a tow tune that I can almost WOT (or atleast 75% throttle) and have no or very minimal smoke... Is that turbo gonna make that possible???

I would LOVE to know that sometime next week

Sub'd. I hope you guys get after this because ill have my hybrid and 175/50s up and running around the first of the year. I'd love to be able to poach somebody's tunes. I do have a first rate shop with a dyno just 10 miles from me and my setup will probably hit the rollers there.

I have been running Eric's XXX Viv's Looney Wild and now have fuel pulled from both to try.

My Truck wasn't running clean but never hit 30 PSI either, so with this new hybrid spooling like a banshee and supposedly making 35 and holding 30 it should be a different world.

My only complaint with my previous setup was it didn't totally clean it up, I"ll know and share tomorrow - Sunday as a make a few hundred mile runs North to Ok and back to Txass.

I have 190/75s and a powermax. Its clean unless the pedal is on the floor, very small amount of smoke if I nail it when cruising, but not bad. I also am running a stock fuel system and with my current tune that I am running, I will drop to about 48 or so PSI. I have not had a chance to tow with this setup as yet, but maybe soon I will hook the camper on, or find a trailer to test it with that would be easier than getting the camper out.

oh, I am running my tunes, lol.

I am also still fighting the shift to OD with light throttle and then getting it to down shift with out using tow/haul to force it.

I'm running 175/30's. Adrian and I worked out a deal for some machine work, and a hybrid is in the works, should perhaps have it on and running in the next month or so. Stock turbo still runs its *** off comparatively, I can hit 33psi at half throttle, lol (rolled into with Tc locked), but seems to hold it really well. That's with looney wild, tweaked slightly, and Hercules ficm tune loaded. It gets hot quick with the stock charger, but the response with the herc tune is great, I'm ecstatic to try the hybrid out. I'll try to get some dyno numbers before and after the hybrid. I'm curious to see what vivian comes up with for hybrid tuning. Mine came from warren diesel, and I couldn't be happier with them.

I'm running 175/Stock and testing a MTW Tweaked Stage 1 along with Vivian's Looney Wild Track file written for my 175's and stock charger. With the stock charger I could easily hit 37 psi and then my boost gauge broke it said this is no bueno lol. My egt's with the stock charger would sky rocket to 1800-1900+ easily on a WOT run. Now with this turbo (still waiting on a new boost gauge to verify) I can easily peg the OEM sensor out at max and hold it there with this tune. Also my egt's with the tweaked stage 1 it struggles to climb above 1650 on a WOT run to 100+. I am experiencing some surging with this turbo but if you go to my review thread you will see that I think I may have a solution that needs to be tested, but it may help. If not Bill @ PHP is confident he can get rid of the surging and get the most out of this combo possible.

Overall I'm happy with this combo, the turbo really awakens the beast within when paired with these injectors. I have plans to eventually run a billet stage 2 with these injectors, but will be testing a new version of the hybrid for Adrian before that then selling it back for an upgrade to a stage 2 that will stay on the truck until I get bigger injectors and build the truck to need a larger charger than a stage 2.
