Nope I haven't ran mine with a Comp yet. I'm looking for a used PM3 now to stack with it to see what it does. I have heard and talked with a few guys that say they run with the Smarty on level 6 with a Drag Comp and that gives them the best #'s though. Anything over level 6 and they say #'s fall off. It could be those guys don't have the air for that much fuel but that's just what I have heard.strokersmoker20 said:D_B have ran your Smarty with a comp?..if so did you like it? Ya I thought the Smarty had setting without timing that way you could run it with other boxes that had timing
I can tell you first hand the Smarty will take care of your RPM issues as well.sstockton said:if you want all out power, stack it with a bluechips redline box. All fuel, lots of it, and fueling to 4000 rpm. These boxes cost a pretty penny but they are supposed to be great. Turbo upgrades are a definite must with this box. Having the truck fuel all the way to 4k though opens it up in a way that no other box (that I'm aware) does. The Redline is adjustable from 3400-4k, it can be set to defuel at a specific egt, or that can be overridden It is supposed to be 60hp more than the FMS box which is somewhere around 120hp.
If you want power this is the way to go. that set up(drag comp/redline) with mach 8's nitrous, a big single and a cam, made a solid 832rwhp, can't argue with that.
But smarty will work too.
ah, I didn't know smarty fueled that high. Thats cool, that was the main reason I would've picked a redline over a smarty. My edge only fuels to 3300, fuel all the way to 4000 sounded pretty cool. But I've never run a smarty. The other cool thing is defueling based on EGT's, however my foot does a fine job of that for $1400.D_B said:I can tell you first hand the Smarty will take care of your RPM issues as well.
That doesn't surprise me. I talked to a guy running a common rail, that just had a box on it, and had some significant engine trouble. anyways, he took the box off to take it in, and they had to pull the head to replace the #5 piston, long story short, they wouldn't warranty it for several reasons, 1; the computer showed erased key cycles, 2; there were burn marks on the pistons from where the fuel had over sprayed the bowls.Smokem said:I have seen an HO truck with just an EZ and stock injectors spray out of the bowl.
You are correct. The more timing you have on anything, the higher the cylinder pressures you will be running. That is why headgaskets will blow out much easier on a truck with no studs or o-rings and high timing.sstockton said:However too much timing can also start doing damage to your head gasket because of increased pressure in the combustion chamber right?
