Bought Me a First Gen

Oh lawwwwd that sound!!! :pant:

 

She looks pretty quick as is! What rpm does that 62/68 like to start spooling?

 

It should sound nastier with more timing. I love that deep growl.

 

As it sits, it starts building boost at 1,600 RPM, and by 1,700 it's ready to takeoff.

And even though it's making boost, it's 2,000 RPM before I'm cleaning up smoke, and even then it hazes under heavy throttle. That's mostly due to the power screw being in as far as it can safely go. (which controls duration, so yeah, it's going to be dirty with lots of duration in my setup)

 

Like I said, lots of pump tuning still to do. I'm happy with the power, I'm just trying to get it to run cleaner.

 

After it's all dialed in, I'll hit the dyno. Goal is 400/800, but would like to get closer to the 450 HP mark. (which is hard to do with a VE truck)

No major updates... Last weekend I took a 400 mile round trip to pick up an all-aluminum powerstroke intercooler. Drove 65-70 MPH, and got 20.8 MPG.

So far Ive given people rides, and raced one 2nd gen... Everybody is pretty impressed with the power in this old farm truck.

Update as of Sunday...

Seals failed on exhaust and intake sides. Pumped the charge pipes and intercooler full of oil, but luckily it didn't get past the intercooler.

Slapped the HX35 back on, and dang if those seals hadn't gone too. I guess from sitting dry for 4 months? 

Sent the S362 out to be warrantied, and ordered a rebuild kit for the HX35. Hoping to be back on the road by the weekend.

 

Debating on compounds, or run the 62 a while longer after it gets warrantied.

Geez, no updates in forever. I guess there's not a whole lot to update though.

 

I did get the S362 rebuilt under warranty, and it has been fine.

 

In December I dyno'd the truck. Best numbers were 434HP / 901TQ.

Other than regular maintenance, and a water pump, I haven't done anything to it. Been working 70-75 hours a week, so that doesn't leave much time for truck shenanigans.

That thing has to scoot right on down the road!

It does, for what it is. 

If my speedo worked, it would wrap around pretty fast. :whistle2:

 

GPS doesn't respond fast enough to look cool. 

 

It would be really fun with a 47RH, but that's another problem for another time.

I've had a similar issue with the gps in my green truck. Actually speedo does the same thing, jumps lol. I really would like to put together a first gen but they bring stupid money up here in the rust.
