Question about EGT's
I just installed a banks sidewinder kit on my nonturbo 93 F350 crewcab with 237,000 miles on it and the paper that came with it said to keep the EGT below 1050*f but on their site under tech info it said that you can run up to 1300*f with no ill effects so which one do I listen to?
I used the truck the day after the install to pull a 10'000 lb camper to the mountains. Although we never maid it due to the tranny going belly up I did get it under some pretty heavy load and saw the EGT's get no higher than 950*f and still feels a little lazy but still is not comparable to pre turbo and it don't matter how hard you push it this truck won't smoke. Can I change the timing and/or turn up the fuel anymore without damage?
I have noticed that a turbo truck and nonturbo truck don't use the same injectors or pump. What is the diff and should I consider a change?
I have been thinking about doing away with the clutch fan and going to electric fans to free up alot of power. Can I do this and still have enough cooling?
Last but not least the trans cooler is mounted on the hot side of the radiator and I have always mounted them on the cool side in my gassers, can anyone tell me if there is some magic reason for this?
