Talking Mods...WOW!!!

Just got my truck back from the shop. Had ARP's, RCD gaskets, II 190's, EGR D., and SCT with tunes from Eric. Holy crap batman, this truck didn't run this good the day I drove it off the lot. Not just performance wise, but also the way it idles and starts. Never gonna look back. I'm hooked boys and girls. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

Re: Mods...WOW!!!

that sure does sound like fun

still the stock turbo? any thoughts on upgrades for it to go with the 190's or no? How is the smoke and EGT's with that turbo/injector combo?

Eric's tunes really are pretty sweet, night and day difference from stock tuning.

Yeah, still stock turbo, until the piggy bank gets a little heavier and I can make my mind up on one. Smoke isn't as bad as I was told it was going to be, but I'm sure that Eric pulled alot of fuel too.

Re: Mods...WOW!!!

thats pretty good to hear its liveable with 190's and a stock turbo. Are you running the race file? or a street file?

I have it on the race file. Don't get me wrong, it smokes, but when the turbo lights it clears up pretty good. I was expecting it to be smokey at idle from the posts that I have read. Good surprise I guess.

Re: Mods...WOW!!!

the stock 03 turbo and 190's seems to be pretty popular actually.

Re: Mods...WOW!!!

Yeah, seems to be running pretty good with the stock turbo. For future reference, what turbo would be ideal to upgrade with? I'm planning on getting one next spring so I can utilize all the fuel that these sticks will dump.
