Hybrid & 175/75's Update

Ran from Dallas to OKC Guthrie actually and back on 1 Tank of Fuel!!! first time ever. Running Looney Wild with Fuel removed from the Low side.

Averaged 70 Mph with brief runs to 85 to keep up -and behind the Rabbit.

Filled to the neck and refilled at the same gas station 463 miles later with 24.3 Gals. = 19 MPG not to shabby.

Truck runs quiet, purrs like a kitten at 75 shifts great and is super responsive from 65 - 85+.....

The only time it smokes is low in the gears and a quick depress of the Tow haul drops a gear revs come up and it's clean as a Gas Rig.

Ok, so I've had a Durastorke, Stage 1 and Hybrid and can tell differences in each so the only thing to do is Jump to a Stage 3 right?

I"ll keep this for a while and run it may install a Devils Own Meth System until i get used to it then jump to a Stg. 3 and baby it to protect the tranny as long as i can.

Did you get a revised tune or is it the same one from Vivian. The way mine runs with the ecm reading bp water meth does not help much for egt. if Vivian is altering that input it might work. just a fyi being our trucks run similar. I have yet to run her latest tune. I am hooked up to my snowmobile trailer and will be like that until june..... I hope!!!!!!! need to get that revision in the agg tow and try. the difference between 25 $ 29 psi is huge!!!!!

I had Viv revise her looney wild to remove fuel from the lower end.

I haven't received nor asked for the latest version Rene is running with the hybrid.

What kind of boost are you seeing out of this turbo Denny? I can easily surpass 35 psi with the stage 1 I'm running.

Mid to high 20's haven't WOT it yet at any point.

I've never seen anything near the Red 31+ with any Turbo.

My truck continues to get stronger as it goes thru the re-learn or continual learn as the harder you drive it, the more responsive it gets.

I've yet to run it along side a Cummins or other tuned truck to see how it compares but I can tell it's strong as hell.

I just got a modded Looney Wild to lower RPM's when i engage Tow Haul.

If i like this i'll have Viv add Exh. Brake to my Loon Wild and quit using TH.

I'm still torn to do Meth Injection and if I'd see any benefits since it would rarely come on above 15 PSI and I don't WOT this thing that often. My plans was to use the a Up Fitter switch and use it like nitrous.
