The tractor intake inlet is a little smaller than the truck version. The tractor puller guys get the ones from trucks.
How hot.... On a continuous basis, 1350*. It can run 1500 for a few seconds, but it's pretty hard to get that hot.


my daily driver:67 F100, 300 4V, cammed, 4 spd.
or, 08 Subaloser Forester, 2" lift.
work rigs: 94 IH 4900, DT466(originally 230hp), #0 fuel plate, tighter gov springs, 22* timing
or, 06 IH 7400, DT466E, 300hp
