  2. Diesel Greg, I’m going to be completely honest man, I’m not a super tech savvy dude. Haha I can tell you it has a OS like a tablet. It does have an SD card slot, though I’m not utilizing it right now. It has an app on it called auto-sleeper. When you turn the truck off it has a user defined countdown then puts itself into sleep mode. When it senses power via ignition source it powers itself back up from sleep mode. PDD offers a hard wired USB port to plug the power cable into. I powered mine off the #9 fuse from the fuse box in order to utilize the turbo timer function of the Quadzilla. I’m guessing that wired in USB port controls the rate of charge for that monitor. For what it’s worth it charges very fast. I attached some info from the GDP website. Hope this helps brother man! Here’s some additional info on the hard wired USB port PDD offers.
  3. I got mine Power Driven Diesel. They have it for $299 right now. If you look at the tuners section, click on the Quadzilla Adrenaline and scroll down it will give you the option to get the monitor. They download the software and everything for you.
  4. I’m running the new GDP display. It’s an Android based display that has every option I could ask for in a vehicle mounted display. The mount is genius, it’s a windshield mount that the charger cable plugs into. The display is held in place by very powerful magnets so the display can be taken off and removed from the vehicle when parked. That way I one can mess with your settings or steal it. It also has a dash cam built in and I have a WiFi backup camera hooked up as well. It’s got a factory GPS system installed but I downloaded Google Maps since I’m more familiar with that. It’s WiFi and Bluetooth enabled obviously. It’s also has an auto-sleeper programed into it so it turns on when you start the truck and shuts off when you shut the truck off.
  5. Here’s a little 40-60mph run. I slowly rolled out of it at 50mph and coasted to 60mph. Still kinda shaking it down at this point. This was level 3 at about 35-36psi and absolutely no smoke.
  6. PDD is Power Driven Diesel. It’s a company out of Utah that I stumbled upon while getting ready to rebuild my truck. They sell a Ultimate Towing Compound kit that someday I would like to finish. It’s a K27 over a S369. They dynoed at 690hp and 1400+ftlbs all with zero lag. They have a YouTube video of the dyno run. They actually have a ton of good content on YouTube. As far as spool it’s completely different than my HY. It’s a little louder but a more tolerable tone, it’s a lower scream vs ear piercing like the little HY. And it follows the pedal man, barely touch the throttle and it starts coming to life! I love it! Heres a quick video right after install.
  7. I was between the K27 and the s200 as well...I ended up going with the K27 since it has the 360 thrust bearings and the s200 doesn’t. That’s why PDD went with the K27 over the s200 for its Towing Compound secondary turbo. They said the K27 was super robust and a very resilient little turbo. If you call those guys it’s amazing how many of the guys that work there run the K27, they all love them! I’m sure both would work very well for your application!
  8. I might have to give one of these a shot, or just order the in-cab controller that PDD makes. If I keep my wastegate like I have it now, I can’t utilize the wiretap portion of the Quad due to overboosting and the Quadzilla defueling at 45psi. Canbus alone gets me close to 40psi. I just need to play with it I guess. I’m amazed at how much air this little K27 can push and how there is no lag...it’s makes boost as fast or faster than the old HY. A puff of smoke and it’s clean almost immediately and never any more smoke or haze after that. 1-30psi in a instant! I think having a stock stall triple disc converter helps too!
  9. Yes it is...I had to wait for a HX35 exhaust elbow when I ordered the K27 since I had the HY.
  10. And that’s my question...does the extra fuel/heat create more horsepower or is it just extra “dyno power” for the big number on a piece of paper. At level 0 I can run at 100% throttle from 0-90+ mph at 35psi and never see over1050 degrees on the EGT gauge. At level 3, same test and barely get over 1100 degrees...it feels good, not doggy at all, and super smooth power delivery. On level 6 of 6(100% wiretap) the Quadzilla defuels due too excessive boost numbers, they will jump up to 50+psi pretty quickly then EGTs jump to 1300-1400 degrees real quick. I just am not sure if im missing out on a good time and more horsepower due to lack of tuning. By the way the K27 is a pretty sweet turbo! Gets the job done and will make a great small turbo in a compound setup someday!
  11. So the beast is up and running like never before! This truck is very lively now..but I need some direction. I have many years in tuning and building imports, both NA and turbo applications, but wrapping my mind around the best way to run a diesel is proving to be a challenge. Right now I’m running a pretty tight wastegate. I’m at or near max boost without wiretap. With the quad on level 0 it’s running about 30psi with the TC unlocked and about 35psi locked. On level 3 it’s about 33psi unlocked and 38psi locked. I’m limited to about 40-45psi with the K27, which builds boost so fast off idle it’s hard to tune for smoke...there is almost never any to tune off of! So in your guys opinion, is it better to use the wastegate to set boost and limit fuel to keep from over boosting, or leave the wastegate loose and use fuel/wiretap to drive it to higher boost levels? Basically I’m smoke free at this point level 0-3 , just don’t know if there are any advantages to using fuel to drive wanted boost numbers or wastegate.
  12. Thanks! As far as the tappet cover I used the Allen bolts Keating sent with the cover and then used the stock spacer bolts to remount the ECM in the original location. I did have to use a washer between the ECM and the bottom mounting point for the ECM to make up the difference in thickness of the billet tappet cover vs. stock cover. And I had some HP sticky shield from Heatshield Products so I stuck that to the back of the ECM to keep some radiant heat away from it. The catch bottle or vent as you referred to it I call it a catch can/breather. With the stock vent and the one on the Keating tappet cover I’m hoping to be able to allow the crankcase to breath and also catch the oil residue in that breather bottle. We will see how well it works. I wrapped the stock breather hose around the timing cover and kept a slight slope to the breather to allow oil to move without hindering air movement. And did the same with the tappet vent. Both feed into the breather. It’s mounted inside of the drivers side frame rail right next too the front drive shaft. I will try to snap some pictures to give you a better idea! Time will tell how well it will work!
  13. The house is hers...the truck is mine! Haha I was pretty proud of that park job going sideways across all three bays of my garage! Left me room to use my engine hoist to lift the head. My wife...not so impressed! She lost her spot for a month or so. So for that month only the important things were in the garage...my motorcycle and my truck!
  14. Thanks guys! That’s where I’m at too rotohead, right at 200k. I had a local transmission shop build me a bomb proof tranny and while he was in there he found that it was seeping coolant at the rear of the head. Not bad but I thought I’d rip the head off and replace the head gasket. It just kind of morphed from there. It’s always had an oil leak that I assumed was from the vacuum/ps pump assembly but turned out after rebuilding the pump it was the tappet cover...so out came the injection pump. Got a Keating machine tappet cover and fuel bracket delete. I wasn’t going to put the old injectors back in so I got new injectors, then needed a Quad to control fuel to the HY, then decided I needed a turbo and exhaust manifold too! Haha It was a slippery slope for sure! Then ended up replacing all sensors, ARP’s, and an S&B intake elbow which hasn’t arrived yet. The K27 was not a drop and go turbo...both the exhaust and compressor side had to be clocked to get the feed and drain in the correct orientation then needed to get a fleece turbo drain cause the stock drain had a split in it. Then had to shave and thin out a portion of the wastegate bracket and grind on a bolt to get orientation correct. Manifold is awesome as are the Stage8 bolts with tabs to prevent backing out. We will see how they hold up! Also made a breather for the 12an fitting off the tappet cover and also ran 3/4 inch hose from the front breather into the breather as well.
  15. New to this community. Just thought I’d introduce myself. The amount of knowledge in this forum is amazing compared to other places. I’ve owned my 01 since 2008 and just went through a major overhaul. Just couldn’t get myself to give up and get a new truck when this one has always been so good to me. I have learned a ton rebuilding this beast and I have a ton of learning to do with the V2 Adrenaline so I’m sure I will be asking questions soon enough! Thanks again for allowing me to be a part of the Moparman forum!
