Puttin' the stroker to the test

Since installing my TN turbo, 6.0 intercooler, 6.0 tranny cooler and big oil, I got to test them out hardcore this weekend.

Took my 38' Raptor toyhauler loaded with 3 quads and 112 gallons of water out camping. Probably a little over 15,000 lbs.. Went up a 10% grade that was almost 5 miles long.. My egt's never got over 1150 degrees with lots of power.. My TN was boosting to about 24lbs the whole way. Pulled it at about 45 mph then saw my tranny temps climb.. Tranny peaked at about 210 degrees at the top of the hill and my water temp was up there too but all-in-all it was pretty impressive to pull that kind of load. My buddy who has a Duramax pulling a 8000 lbs toyhauler couldn't believe it.. He was struggling to keep up . Wonder how some stage 2's would work for me?

What TN turbo do you have and some stage 2's would be nice.

Re: Puttin' the stroker to the test

I agree, the TN .84 turbo, stock injectors, and big oil makes for a great towing set-up. Egt's are very manageable, boost was instant, and the powerband is huge. I really liked that set-up while I ran it.

Re: Puttin' the stroker to the test

10&#37; grade at highway speeds... meh. You need some 20mph corners on that grade to make it really fun

Sounds like your trans needs some help... Mine used to heat up on hard pulls like that even when I knew the TC was locked up. Doing all of my tugger kit made a HUGE difference! My truck wants to do a wheelie now when it shifts with the cabover on and the rockcrawler in tow

Yes I have a stock TQ converter. I do have a BTS valvebody but the TQ needs to go.. Hey anyone have a good suggestion for a good TQ converter? I have a new tranny courtesy of Ford.. Mine was replaced under warranty and works fine, converter has to go though.

When was it replaced? If it's the updated triple disk converter it is stronger than you think.
Mine's holding up fine.
