MTW MadMax Puller Edition

Hello all, just thought I would update on my latest build. 2 years ago I pulled my engine out and tore it down to a short block and then built it back up with all updated Ford parts, OEM headgaskets, APR's, 155/30's, MTW Durastroke, R/R fuel system, 4" MBRP exhaust. Last year I added a Airdog 150. I sled pulled a couple times last year and never thought I would do good, just figured I'd try it. I had traction bars and suspension stops and I ended up with a couple 3rd and a 4th place finish against about 20 trucks. Top 2 are Duramaxs that are trailered in. My buddy says they are 550-600 HP trucks. I called Adrian and talked about my goals. He told me that he could build me a MadMax that would pass work stock rules and a 2.55 in plug would not fit in. We spoke a few more times before I made my final decision. I sent it in and had it back in 3 weeks. I needed it by the weekend and Adrian promised it would be here by Friday. He called me at 11:30 on Thursday night asking fory address and it arrived at my house Friday at 12:45pm. Wow, he really went out of his way to make sure it made it too me. The turbo looks great. I told him to just leave the cover plain and reuse the stock bolts. I didn't want anything shiny or new bolts because I don't want to attract any attention. Adrian called me twice on Saturday to see how things were going. Once I got everything done, I fired it up. Man this thing whistles like a son of a b##ch. It sounds like a jet. Idling it sounds like an absolute beast. Took her out for a spin and was running my IDP extreme street for my original stage 1. It spools just as fast as the original, but there is a huge difference mid and top end power. I then loaded my Wildman tow tune and pulled my 10k boat home from storage and it pulled like a champ. EGT's never got over 1300 degrees. Then I loaded my SPD and holy sh$t, it hauls azz! I haven't done any WOT 0-100 runs yet because I'm worried about my transmission. I put a PI Stallion converter in when I had the engine out, bit still leery. I am going to take it to Andy Warren and get the trans done. I was going to get my injectors turned into 190/30, but the lack of time and money put that on hold until next year. I took my best friend for a ride who is a Duramax guru. He has 5 duramax from stock to a 950 HP dually to a 1800 HP puller. He was very impressed and said he wouldn't be surprised if it mid to upper 500's HP. I can't wait to get some new tunes made for the turbo. I'm going to give Drew from BackRoad Performance. I hear he has tuned a few MadMax turbos.

I also put a Full Race ported intake from WPE. The intake is awesome also. It looks good, it wasn't warped at all, and the welds were perfect. I also got it unfinished again to draw no attention to my engine bay. It was between an APEX intake and WPE, but the wait was too long for the APEX and I wanted to show that I'm not biased one way or the other.

I am fully satisfied with my new turbo. It has been the best upgrade yet and I can't wait for after my transmission gets built and new tunes written, to see the full potential. My first pull I'm going to is on June 21st. I hope I can gain some ground against these Duramaxs. I will update this thread as needed. I want to thank Adrian for taking his time to talk to me and build me an awesome turbo and for getting it shipped overnight. And of I decide to go bigger in the future, I will look at getting another one of his turbos. Maybe his "Monster" or whatever he come up with next!

I'll post some pictures when you get home.

I'm planning on pulling at Burton on the 21st. Just need to add my dual shocks up front and finish up my converter unlock switch and I should be ready. Still up in the air about pulling with my 35's or 33's. I got stock gears so I don't know yet.

Haven't got accurate boost numbers yet as I don't have my mechanical boost gauge hooked up yet. Just going off the CTS, but the map sensor maxes out. EGT's are good. Haven't stood on it yet hard on my race tune, but on my tow tune towing my 10k lb boat, max I was seeing was 1250. Cruising at 70 they are about 750-850 depending on grade. I'm very happy so far.
