HP gestimation

Howdy folks,

I've got some money saved up now from this summer and I'm getting ready to spend some of it on my truck. I have a tripple disk TC, and am going to be getting a valve body from either Goerends or HTS this next week. Then I'm getting either a 3 or 4 GSK( looking for opinions on which one). and guages. I have a couple of plates that I have ground down to a 0 and a 100. Once I get some more saved up I'm going to get a set of New Era 435's hopefully. Do you think I'll be able to reach 400HP with a setup like this? Also timing will be bumped to 16.5 Thanks, and what do you's give me for a TQ guess?

Tq is generally 2X the hp in these engines. That should have you at 400hp/800tq, or real close to it. Any P-pumped diesel I own would get a 4k gsk. If I let other people drive it a lot, then I'd consider the 3k.

Watch th input shaft very close...I have a buddy w/ a 12v that has 3k kit, Lazer Cut DVs, 125 injectors, timing at like 20 or so and a 0 plate, hes at about 460hp...his tranny went bad w/o the Lazer Cuts DVs and two days later with them he had silinoid troubles...before it went bad all he had was a BD valve body...now hes got a HD Torque Converter, and its a good little daily driver...hope that helps...

I wouldnt run the stock turbo with that kind of power, it's just too small. You may try the HTB series from HTT, or making a set of twins.

i think the stock turbo would be ok...and twins may be a bit overkill...If your worried about the stock turbo think about a 62 series from High Tech, or a s3000...

If your worried the stock turbo won't be enough just get a 16cm turbine housing to replace stock. Only like $150 from HTT.

is he still on stock input shaft? As far as turbo go's I'm just a poor high school kid, so I can't really afford a Phat shaft or an HTT. Hopefully in a couple months I'll atleast be able to by an HX-40 or an S-300

yea, we both just graduated this year, he just has a Single Disc HD Torque Converter, and a BD Valve body, and to correct myself his timing is 21* and the starwheel is ALL the way screwed in...and his tranny is good and EGTs are good on the stock turbo...

What are you calling good as far as EGT's go? How's his boost? I think I may have found a set of used 435's for a real good price.
