On another note, I did get something else today. Something no one else has. Something that will (hopefully) give my truck a little more power and torque.
It's an experimental version of the Super Panty Dropper tune from Chris at TSD! This version is something he said he's been wanting to try out for a while on a truck with stock fuel and air. It incorporates a little more fuel and boost into the ,already badass , Super Panty Dropper that I ran at the PHP dyno day.
I called Chris today to get him to bump up the line pressure in my 3-5 ,until I can get the GoGo Diesel direct clutch solenoid installed , and he started asking question about how the current tune was running. I explained that I was very happy and had no complaints, but every since I saw the power being pushed through my tranny I was paranoid about the direct clutches. He agreed and bumped the pressure while opening the option in the tune so I could adjust as well. Then we talked about my boost at WOT and my EGT's as opposed to other comparable tunes as well as power levels. I explained that the SPD was definitely the fastest and most powerful tune. He then said what every gearhead wants to hear, "I think we can make it a little faster, more powerful and get it to pull a little harder on the top end." I got a warm cuddly feeling all over. Then he ask me to run it and report back on what I thought about it.
I think we're going from WOT boost of 21-23psi currently, to around 25-27psi. The trick is to find the threshold of how much boost I can make before the turbo starts heating the air to much and power is lost. I'm trying to learn to read compressor maps now, but I'm still learning. Since my truck is running so clean now, Chris seems to think my turbo is in really good condition and more fuel can safely be added too. I restrained myself from loading the tune after the grille was installed and taking the truck out for the tranny to relearn (had a family dinner). I did however load the tune on my LiveWire and as soon as I can get away from work tomorrow, I'll be trying it out.
I guess what it all boils down to is........ Our GPDA President won't be RWHP champion for long! BTW, Chris and I also had a long conversation about Nitrous.
