Disappointed in OBS! Talk me in off the ledge!
OK guys I'm going to admit it. I might have made a mistake when purchasing my OBS. I have a 1996 CCSB. Auto trans, 35" tires, intake, 3" DP with straight 4" exhaust, upgraded 17* TE hpop.
I sold my 2006 Cummins because I wanted to get out of some debt. I loved the look of the OBS and when I found this truck I had to buy it. Now I've started towing my 29' camp trailer (7,000 lbs) and WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!! My Cummins would smoke this thing. To be honest it doesn't pull my trailer much better than my Denali did. I have to run with OD off most of the time which means at 65 mph I'm turning 2500 RPMs.
Should I be running the PSD at higher RPMs than my cummins. The PSD doesn't really make much power until 2000 RPMs. Is it ok to run it at 2500?
How much money will it take to get my PSD even close to my Cummins? I don't want to throw thousands of dollars into a truck that will never pull like a cummins.
I'm struggling here.
