2000 F350 - Too Much Torque!!!

Truck is the one in my sig.

I just put the injectors in about a week ago. The truck now makes so much torque the motor is twisting and the serpentine belt is now hitting the upper radiator hose under a hard launch. I have had the hose blow off once and I have been through 3 belts since the injector install. When the belt his the hose it pushes it back and the pulleys and shaves the back 2 ribs off the belt. Motor mounts are STOCK but only have about 25k miles on them.

Has anyone ran into this problem before. Do I need some better/heavier motor mounts? Do I need to chain it? I know there are a lot of guys running the same combo as me (38r and stage 3s) so if any of you guys could chime in that would be awesome.

Thanks!

Im also interested about this, thats about the same set up i will be running soon and may change my mind if i will have this problem and not be able to fix it

Stiffer motor mounts may help, but they can only do so much, if there are "too" stiff and the engine torques and twists.........breaking the motor mount clean off wouldnt be fun at all

Had the truck on the dyno yet? Interested to see the #'s it lays down with the 38r and 3's versus the h2e and 3's

Well I know the mounts are installed correctly. Probably just bum mounts (I think they came from autozone or something like that) so they are probably junk. I have not had it on the dyno, I just got it all done about a week ago. I can tell you that you will not be disappointed with the combo. I cannot believe the power I am making with my setup. I do believe you have PMR's though and if you do I wouldn't run stage 3s.

You could always run a torque strut to help minimize the twist. .....

I am not familiar with what a torque strut is. Could you explain a little more?
