I'm looking for only 320 Pony's

I'd like the "Guru's" opinions...

Other than "upping" the RPM (I'm going to increase the rpm to 3K), what would be the most RELIABLE way to get 320 HP from my 6BTA?

BTW: The motor is from a 97 1/2 Dodge 3500 (stock 215 HP).

a little more timing, 15* should be fine. grind the fuel plate and mod the AFC. drill out the wastegate and divider on the stock charger. that should get you there.

Thanks Garret.

How about if I want to leave my timing alone?

"drill out the wastegate and divider on the stock charger"...

I've read the 12v "stickys" and haven't seen a "how to" for this. Could you explane further-or-provide a link?

Also, who is a good source GSK kits?

Thanks in advance!

you dont HAVE TO do the timing but it will help.

drilling out the wastegate and divider.

as said, ask a vendor about a GSK. i recommend a 4k and some valve springs. you will really enjoy them! if anything, get a 4k and leave them a little loose, they will run good like that.

I just changed the springs in my Allison MT 654 to 3k and have the trani all buttoned up, so I'm going to stick with 3k.

The link for advancing the timing on dodgetech.org is not working...Could one of you guys point me to a "how to" thread?

***Edit: i got the link to load up!!!!*****

And while I'm asking questions...

How does one determine what plate is the best for what application?

These mods are for my "expedition" truck Casa Azul (F700 ford 4x4).

A #10 is an all 'round versatile plate. That alone in your 215 pump will get you right close to 325hp. Can slide it ahead for even more. Slide the AFC housing full forward at the same time.

Jack, just saw your "expedition-class vehicle" spotlight on the RV Crazy! show on the travel channel.

i must say, that is one fantastic looking vehicle - you've done some top-notch work!!!

doing the modifications to the AFC components and tweaks is the secret to 'tuning' these 12v Cummins. following the instructions posted will let you dial-in your motor perfectly to your liking.

let us know if there's anything else you need help with.

Thanks for the kind words Travis!

This re-model of Casa goes WAY beyond just the remotoring. I've re-engineered the front suspension and will be re-configuring several of the "living" systems.

Thanks again for your help you guys!!!!!!
