Question about the 7.3L in Diesel World Mag.

There is a black SCSB in there built by Elite Diesel. I dont have the Mag in front of me, but I have a couple Questions...

1. What would be the benefit of running 350cc split shot B-codes (what there running) over some single shots? I thought tuners would much rather tune single shots than splits.

2. It says that the guy is running Custom Tunes via SCT programmer, stacked with a T.S. style flip chip. I thought the T.S. would always override any programmer that was loaded.

Im not bashing the truck, Its a very nice ride. Just confused....

The truck is nice... But after I read the split shot B codes and the "stacked" sh!t, I just laughed it off. Maybe someone knows more about it...

Re: Question about the 7.3L in Diesel World Mag.

My guess is the mag messed up. I have heard about it being done before. I don't know the truck nor have seen the article so I can't comment on that.

Re: Question about the 7.3L in Diesel World Mag.

haven't seen the article, but the only advantage i could think of with a 350cc split shot B code would be injection pressures and atomization. it would take huge amounts of oil to run them though. would be interesting to know what kind of power could be made that way though if you could provide the oil for them.

the TS & SCT stack doesn't sound like a great deal. i would bet that the magazine messed up there as well. anyone who knows a 7.3 obviously knows not to stack anything. hahaha

yeah i got a buddy that apparently has 2 chips stacked on a 2000, but it still runs like chit. haha.

Farm Boy, i have no experience with BTS anything, but i'm sure their oil setups are probably pretty good so if that guy does have 350cc split shot B codes i wonder if he can keep them fed with oil?? we need to find this guy on the web. haha
