I mean heavy, and not just around town. If you do, what's your setup and what's the gross weight?
I'm grossing 25k loaded w/ .007 b codes terminator pumps, fuel and a 66mm modded H2.
I'm asking because I am having trouble w/ my EGTs
. I've swapped turbos, (H2 62mm-66mm) stepped up from 430s to 456s, live tuned, and still fight w/ EGTs
I thought at first that I was running too small of a turbo, so I went to the larger turbo. Still have to feather the throttle. Same w/ the swap from 430s-456 gears. I have been thinking about water, but I'm not sure that's the best answer.
When I'm running flat in OD
I can hold [email protected]
around 75mph / 15psi and 1050. If I lug it at all or just cruise, (1900-2100rpms) the EGTs
climb, and I end up having to down shift. If I hit a hill in OD
, my boost goes to 25-30psi and I start getting up to 1250-1350. I start feathering the pedal to keep it around 1250, and the rpms start dropping and I slow to around [email protected]
around 65mph. I down shift, and my EGTs
will drop to around 1050 again w/ 20-25psi. In 3rd, I'm running about [email protected]
65mph. I don't like to tow at that rpm, so I drop to [email protected]
65mph. If I push 30 psi
, the EGTs
start getting hot again.
I also get really crappy millage while towing. I drove 75 miles and put 12 gallons in it. That's like 6.2mpg. My brother has a 2000 w/ intake, exhaust and a DP
chip. He took 7 gallons. His gross weight is about 8k less than me too.
I am thinking that I should drop to stage 2s, and see how it tows. I just hate to give up the b codes. Any ideas?
