So since laurie wanted us to move our converstions over to this new section i figured i would start a new page so here is our California chat page in our new section:woot:

Ill start off with a kill story...
so as i was heading home today just cruising at 60 on the freeway I see this 6.0 lifted harly edition dodging traftic in the rear view he gets next to me and roals a little coal on my truck, then he kept speedin up and slowing down:nod: its on now. so as we get side by side again i flip the chip to the 140tune and we both take off were neck and neck pulling up this hill 60up to xxxmph side by side the whole way till i saw the EGTS get to 1300 and let out of it and of course he flew passed me:doh: anyways i was pretty proud of the old girl keeping up with a 6.0

Running the 140 tune, going up hill @ xxx mph.....EGTs @ 1300. Sounds about right. The tune pumps a bunch of extra fuel in there. More fuel, more heat. Way to represent the 7.3s Jordan!!

It's weird seeing our chat thread with so few posts, but HEY, ya gotta start (over) somewhere, right? :nod:

Or now they have activated 'Tags' - You could tag this thread for easier searching.

Look at the line in between the last post on the page and the quick reply box. There is a nav bar called Tags.

After you create a tag, go to Search in the nav bar near the top of the page. Select Tag Search, type in your tag to find it.

Looks like Officer 7 is in Vacaville - According to the location in his post. I think he said they're moving there because his wife is still working in Sac. He works out of Hayward, so they head opposite directions to work.

hey were getting somewhere with this new section....

yea laurie pulling a hill in that high of tune creates a ton of heat due to so much fuel and limited by the amount of boost possible, its limited at 25psi :doh: and 37s with stock gears dont help the situation, it was only 1275 for a split sec and let out of it, im not floating any valve seats or melting rings i know better than that:thumb:

Nor Cal, that truck is BA!!!! any more pics??? imo it would look better if all the susp was either orange or yellow, but thats just me... probably rides like a dream though

Officer 7 your in VV now? good to see some more members from here

yes i did... no i can hit 28psi with the wastegate unplugged, but after 25 the stock turbo is useless and over 30 kaboom!!!!
i had the wastegate plugged in so most of the boost had bled off after 20psi
