Finally Drove My Truck
This last round of mods I did a complete fuel system including a sump, AN10 lines, A1000 pump, Driven regulated return and dual CAT filters. It also got Warren 190/100 injectors. I ran the RCD 68mm Powermax with a BMW and also installed an AFE cold side CAC tube. The trucks been running a while but i had to replace the gear set in the rear diff untill I finish my Dana 80 build. Got it all done and the only problem that I ran into was a faulty fuel shut off valve. I bought one of those fancy anodized Earls ball valves and the damn thing leaks ever so slightly.
Anyway, I had Eric at Innovative write a new tune today he had it over to me in 2 hours and actually it was perfect for how much I drove it. I was worried about the truck being a hot smokey mess but its not to bad. The truck sits at about 825 cruising which isnt great but it is better than what I thought it wouold be for running big nozzles. The turbo seems to light pretty quick and hits 35PSI when the converter is locked but in all honesty I got a little nervous hitting the giggle pedal because i am nervous about my trans which is still currently stock. My plans are to build it this year but we'll see how it goes.
All in all very happy with how it went dreams of being able to tow with this setup may not happen unless he can pull some serious fuel from it. I have been driving a 78 f250 with a 351 modified for 3 months but this thing feels super fast! what I want to know is when did diesel fuel go up to $4.50 a gallon?... What a bunch of bull! One final note is that this turbo absolutely screems but I do miss the loud whistle of my old 03 turbo...
