Have you checked the rods? Depending on the build date of the motor you might have forged...

Most PMR's are fine up to the 400hp mark, at best your around 350... within the safe range IMHO...

On the valve cover there should be a build date for the motor. If not you are left with pulling the inspection cover on the drivers side and getting a peak.

I know of 5 01 PSD's in the area that have Forged Rods... 01 is luck of the draw really.

i have a friend with an 02 pmr truck and he has been at 400hp the past two years and changed to some better nozzles a few months back so he is over 400hp. IMO a lot of it has to do with tuning
