So what do your EGT's look like at the big end?barrowed time said: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.
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.Smokem said:So what do your EGT's look like at the big end?
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!barrowed time said: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.
He's speaking of the VP44 I believe. They go out easy on trucks with stock fueling with stock fuel pumps. And extremely easy on ones with fueling beyond stock. I have a edge comp box with a stock fuel pump. I'm dancing on quick sand. However I've been a year with the truck now, so I guess I'll keep my fingers crossed until I can afford a FASS.Forrest Nearing said:your choice should be 12v or CR...
the 2nd gen 24v trucks are serverly hadicapped...

is the pyro probe pre or post turbo?barrowed time said:Trust me the egt where not problem otherwise we would have shut the truck down. I will talk tothe driver and find out what they where and let you guys know. Found out what the egt's where and it was around 900 to 1200deg.
So you are actually looking at 1200*-1500* then. That is more inline, but I still think it is about three hundred low with your stated mods.barrowed time said:post turbo pyro
Although it is far from recommended, many trucks have gone much more than 1500* without any damage. In your opinion, what kind of temps do you think a pulling truck on straight #2 is running towards the end of the pull? I will bet you everything I have that it is more than 1500*.barrowed time said:If you go any higher than 1500 you ARE going to melt down
