Mine says 225 on the sticker. Dyno with mods in sig was 217 at the wheels. His injectors alone will not allow that kind of horsepower.

They were rated at 215 through mid '96 then late '96 and '97 was 225. That is crank ratings as well. Stock they usually do about 170-175ish and with a chip and exhaust and intake they usually do right at the 200-210 range. You can't get any more than that without bigger injectors or propane.

My VC says 215 hp. I have stock injectors (see sig for other mods), but I have put down 250.4 hp (see http://forums.thedieselstop.com/ubbt...&fpart=2&vc=1). In all honesty, it looked a little like a shift spike, but it was pulling about 240 up to that point. Several people commented at that dyno day that I must have had injectors. I drag race it every week, but I deep stage it and leave off idle (which slows it down considerably but makes it more consistent). It runs 17.30's-17.50's in that mode, and has run as quick as 16.80 by shallow staging and leaving with a little bit of boost.

This weekend at the drag races, there were a few other OBS trucks, including two with a bunch of Banks stuff (including intercoolers). I still had the quickest OBS!

Before I bought my truck, I test drove several 1995-1999 trucks (all stock), and the one I bought felt noticeably faster than the others. I've wondered what it is about my truck that makes more HP, but I'm not gonna complain about it!

Did you buy it new? Are you sure someone didn't swap in a set of ABs or something into it? Or maybe just a slightly larger set of single shots?
