RCD 64mm + 180s?

I am thinking about an RCD 64mm + 180cc injectors from them - I am looking for a go-fast street combo that will also allow me to tow my 10,000lb boat with ease.

Thoughts?

Thanks

-Rou

Make sure you have them tune it for you too. A single 64 is a pretty big charger to tow with, but Josh claims it can be done through proper tuning... I personally would probably go with a 62 and 155's.

Save your self a lot of hassle and let rcd do the tuning. He will by far do a better job than other tuners on his product....

Id think a 64 would be a little laggy to tow with but if the tunings good, I dont see why not. Youll need a good fuel system in place first so you dont starve your injectors. if you went with 155s a stock pump should be able to support those but a good regulated return would be worth the investment along with a FASS or airdog

I've got a 64mm and 155's ordered form Josh. I plan on towing once in a while...up to 14k
I'm doing a reg return and an egr delete at the same time. I'll be running the stock pump, but plan on doing a fuel pressure gauge to keep an eye on things.

I'll let you know how it works.

I've seen that combo run, and it ran very well. If you do get a FASS system that eliminates the stock pump, YOU DO NOT WANT A REGULATED RETURN, the FASS pump is regulated, and they will fight each other. That said, returning the fuel out the back of the heads with just a trickle is good. Trusted makes a nice kit just for regulated pumps that use a variable orfice for the trickle effect and it is very nice, but not absolutely needed, just the icing on the cake.

You should be good. I run an Airdog 150 feeding the stock pump with a regulated return and it holds 57psi all day long feeding 185's. Works very well for me.

64mm from RCD is fine to tow with. I do and I tow significantly more then 10k and it's live cargo as well. Although 4.30 gears do help, plus I tend to "roll into" the throttle which also helps with lag. 64mm would be the highest that I would go for towing purposes though.
