First of all how are you figuring the mileage? Hand calculated or off the overhead?
MPG was highway, and was an over all two way just over 1600mile run each way to get the trailer (about, as that papers are gone now) Hand calculated average using logged miles and fill slips. Just south of Fresno to 80 miles south of Abaleen (spelling?) Tx, three ranges. Not the greatest or most accurate calcluation. plus trailer was empty. And 75gal tank makes for long back killing runs.
Local MPG of course will be much lower, but have not done that as yet. Had a bit of a boobo in September, and rigs not back yet. Few more weeks.
When you say your pulling that load at under 900 degree's, with the Banks powerpack, I'm pretty sure you have a post turbo pyro, which you can add another 400 degrees to get a more accurate preturbo reading, which means your running it too hot.
This bothers me. Where do I look to see where the pyro is hooked in, and where should it be located? Could a standard shop fix this if in the wrong location so I get accurate readings? Why have a guage if it's not hooks up correctly. I want be doing anymore heavy loads for about 6 months, yet still, best to be safe and get it done.
You have an 01, you have powdered metal rods, which means you will be limited as to how many ponies you can add via injectors. If you want a absolute mean trailer pulling beast then I would suggest adding this to what you already have.
1. stage 1 injectors
2. bigger turbo
3. aftermarket hpop system
4. custom chip
You are prolly correct on why it won't hold at 24 or more boost but I would suggest you check for leaks as a previous poster suggested.
As for the recomended mods.
1. stage 1 injectors (ok)
2. bigger turbo (whos, recomendation, size?)
3. aftermarket hpop system (whos, recomendation)
4. custom chip (ok)
I've read about Total Diesel Performance and You all over this forum. The TDP site only lists stage IIs', and no turbo options. Any unlisted over there? Packages for this setup. Chat later?
So that was a nogo for the Overboost Annihilator and boost tube mods?
I'm not going for a racer, even though the looks are heading that way. But I would like a bit more fun unloaded, but don't want to hurt her for the long run. WAY to much already invested here, and I will have to keep her for ever. No investment recoop going to happen.
Quick clearification: The psi drop situation only happends if I gun it up to 24, like passing. Normal acceleration is find and holds when reaching 24psi. The SES and injector problem happends about 70% of the time after it sits (goes cold, or over night). Not as in outside temp. But when normal starting and warm up. Then after driving about 30 or more miles, it runs great.
Thanks for the help. I will stop by the shop and look for the probes location.
