Put it on the dyno
well put the truck up on the dyno today..have to say was kind of a waste of money.. 1st run, truck shifted down twice: 437hp 710ft/lbs.. 2nd run..ramped the recording speed to 65.. ran through the band pretty good, but for some reason it ran through the band hit 100MPH then sounded like it shifted again
404hp 698ft/lbs third run.. same as second..ran tow/haul got it in highest gear..eased into it under load, ran through the band and then it shifted up again..not sure where this mystery gear is coming from!! same:404hp 700ft/lbs.. the Hp was where i expected but torque was low IMO..
The guys running the dyno where great to work with but they usually dyno street cars so the diesels where throwing them off pretty good.. most of the numbers just didnt make much sense. there was an 03 f350 up there.. i think he was running intake, 5" turb back, and some chip ( i forget what it was)and a few bolt ons.. i think the poor guys best was 298hp & 440ft/lb.. that cant be right..i dont know how a tuned truck runs lower numbers than it should stock!! the guy running the dyno simply said our trannies were just too smart for the dyno..coudnt get a solid run it..oh..another good one..5.9 cummins with twins..built!! i was told the truck was put together very well.. his best was 640hp & 621ft/lbs....What? another cummins ran 666hp & 1350+- a few ft/lbs
overall it was a fun gathering, That Cummins Vette was sweet to watch!!!!
