Resistor input.

Ive been playing with a 5.6k resistor in my truck lately, been there about a week and love it. Today I tried out a 3.3k and seemed to have a lot less power, to me it feels like its defueling. So I went out and made a cheap boost fooler and wha-la! Same problemo. For a while I thought the injection pumped was maxed out but the 3.3 has less power then the 5.6 and once I build boost she levels out at around half throttle. Could this be a boost issue and if it is, why won't my fooler take care of that?

Great site btw, I was led here from fullsizebronco.com

ditch the resistors and get yourself some custom tunes, ive been there with resistors and its too much hassle as you see. youll save money in the long run by getting custom tunes, those resistors are hard on an engine.

oh, and welcome, glad to have ya!

Oh believe me I would love a TW custom tune. I'm only rocking the 6637 filter so far. I'm waiting on gauges and exhaust for the tune. Right now I'm just trying to get by with what I can.

it olmost seams as if you may be getting to much and and in order to make it work you need boost sooner.

No matter how long I stay on the throttle its still the same problem, the turbo seems to boost quite a bit more judging by the sound. If I had too much fuel would it be slower then the 5.6k?

Will the Zener diode work for the OBS's? Or just the SD's?

It works for SD's only. But your HPOP might be a little weak and cannot keep up with the bigger resistor.

if you are playing around with any power add ons, you really really really need an intake, exhaust and gauges to keep everything cooler and keep an eye on temps.
but like dsljnky said, your best bet would be a coustom tuned chip. resistors really are hard on engines

But would that result in less power then the 5.6k?

I'm getting there. My list of things for this truck is long and, well, expensive. Taken it day by day.
