I thought I had it all figured out...

Ok, so I've been doin tons of reading, (just found out we're havin our first diaper filler so we aren't gettin out much) and I thought that with an H2E kit, either upgraded by Beans or otherwise, and 230ish cc injectors, plus the oil and all that, I'd be good for daily driving, towing, sled pulling, whatever.

I THOUGHT, that that set up would be a good balance between performance and driveability. BUT... all the reading I'm doin is makin it seem like goin to injectors that big is gonna skyrocket my EGT's when towing.

Now, I'm not that bright, but it seems like, with good tuning, I should be able to tow with 300's...

I tow a boat and don't even notice. My flatbed with buddies dodge (standard load) tips at about 11k, my camptrailer is about 9k minus the weeks camping gear and water tank, etc... And the 3 horse slant with LQ is probably over 10k most of the time we go anywhere for the ol' lady's events.

So, I'm asking the guys with this setup to please respond!!!

What are your numbers when you're towing, what weight?

I badly want to compete with my buddies dodge (when he's not smokin his trans or liftin the head), but I don't really want to buy another freakin truck to tow with.

So the big brains can chime in with what I should be able to run.

THANKS!!!

I do not see an intercooler in your set-up. Get yourself and 06 intercooler and it will help a great deal with your egt's. I also recomend you do the ZOODAD mod to boost your inbound air flow.

Yeah thought about that, but I don't have any exact numbers on the difference it makes. I've heard it's not much though, like 50-100 degrees. Which works out to bein 50-100 miles further from the house when I break down lol.

Forgot to mention I've got all the pipe to do 5inch exhaust too, if I need it.

Ive towed alot of miles with the modded h2e and hybrids injectors, its all in the tuning. I was around 550 rwhp with that setup and had no problems at all towing up to 24k gross with my f250.

That's kinda what I figured. I just wanted to hear it. You recommend hybrids or, since I'm plannin on big oil anyway, should I go for the big singles?

a 6.0 IC isnt gonna make enough difference to be worth the time it will take you to put it in. I would go with hybrid injectors, if your stock HPOP is in good shape you wont need to upgrade to big oil
I see your running Jodys tunes, he's one of the best so im sure he can get the tuning just right to deal with towing. I know of several people running similar setups on a TW chip and not having issues so it can be done.
I would put the 5" on and that will help alot with EGTs as well. if you need more cooling look into a water spray kit.

Hope this helps

Yeah that's what I keep hearing about the IC. Thanks!

And can anybody tell me what it does to hybrids to put big oil on 'em? Does it shorten up the life of 'em? Does it give you more performance?

My HPOP is gettin smoky, that's why I'm wondering, I'm probably gonna have to replace it before to long, so I figure I might as well go the whole way.
