CR or 24valve

Hey guys, need help making the decision. Common Rail or 24 valve? I want to go fast, so an auto is a necessity. Which is easier and cheaper to make hp? I like the newer body style, but i'd rather have less expensive and more hp. thanks for your help.

your choice should be 12v or CR...

the 2nd gen 24v trucks are serverly hadicapped...

I gave serious consideration to a 3rd gen, but I couldn't find a nice one for under $20k... I got my quad/short 12v for $8600... the difference in price will buy a lot of power

Severly handicapped???? I was understanding that 2 generations had a lot of potential...I was sold on common rails until a local performance shop told me it would be cheaper/easier to get a lot of hp out of a 2 gen. Now i'm confused:shrug:

I don't think the 2nd gen 24v trucks are as severly handicapped as they once were. Although if you are going for all out power and speed, go with a 2nd gen 12v hands down.

If it where me I would go with a 2nd gen 24v, ours is a 1998.5 24v and for very little money, we made the thing go 12.86sec. in the 1/4 with a stock turbo and injector pump. Very cheap horse power just watch the trans.

So what do your EGT's look like at the big end?

I would be very interested in that also. Congrats on the numbers and everything, but you can't tell me you are not afraid of a serious turbo failure or a complete meltdown. That stock charger has to be so far out of it's map that it is rediculous.

I have 400hp on my stock 35 and it can not even come close to creating enough air, I mean look at my avitar. My charger is hating life everytime i start the truck. If I had air I would be over 500 easy. You have over 200hp sticks in there, something bad is going to happen. Might not be tomorrow, but it will happen.

That is why the truck is called borrowed time, we know the turbo will go but that just means that we get to get a new one, EGT I don't know, I am the builder not the driver, and he did not mention it, so could not have been to high. Also it is only a show and drag truck not a daily driver.

There is NO Way that the EGT's are not a problem with the mods and a stock turbo! Just an EZ and 90 hp sticks would exceed the safe limits on the stock turbo!

I don't think the 24v's are handicapped:shrug: , they can have some great numbers with not that many mods. The trans suck, but they do on all of the dodges . The 12v is the king for cheap and a lot of hp:HappyMugs .
