Tuned with my banks pda before, I could sorta hang with him. With the looney wild, ficm tuner (hercules) and 175/30 injectors, and a few other things, I stay just ahead of him on a 4x4 launch, maybe a truck length lead.
I didnt realize 6.4's were so nasty, I guess there's a lot to be said about the gains of common rail injection over the heui system in the 6.0 and 7.3. That being said, workin on them looks like a nightmare. I had considered swapping my truck out for one, but eventually ill have to work on it, or get the bug to mod it, and i dont want to deal with working in that engine bay. The 6.0 is bad enough. I think my next truck will be a 6.7, but thats a long, long way off.
Does anyone know how nodded 6.4's hold up against nodded 6.7's? I never looked into it.
A modded 6.4 is Much faster then a modded 6.7...
The 6.4 is a POWER BEAST!
The 6.7 is limited by fuel supply and pistons IIRC
BTW, how do you like the 30% nozzles? I might be downgrading due to 75s putting too much pressure on my fuel supply and mostly cuz towing is kinda hard through the mountains without a larger turbo. The top end power should only be like 10hp difference though after talking with Adrian last night. (PM me please to not derail this thread)
OP, Doesn't that just suck when you think you got it all good and BAM, something goes wrong, all while scaring the bajeezies out of you from the sound LOL
A race I lost last week was to a New Camaro SS... Lined up, 4x4 on, boosting up, turns green, GUN IT, and.... 4x4 never engaged
