RE: Ford 7.3 gasohol engine 700HP! ?

Could a 7.3 EcoBoost turbocharger kit be far behind? Why ? This is a TRUCK engine. Truckers (or the people who buy the trucks) want the "best bang for the buck" from initial purchase through maintenance with a long life. Supercharging get instantaneous boost. Turbo, irregardless of how well it is done, still has some lag. Direct injection does very little to improve power or fuel economy. The 5.0L "Coyote" engine now has 16 injectors, 8 direct, 8 port. Most of the time it operates on the 8 port injectors. Unlike superchargers, turbos make more power in lower rpms while supercharged generally make it in higher rpm ranges. It is not just about how much, but when especially when it comes to towing. As far as turbo lag, it is only a major issue when you go wide open throttle and not when you are under load like in a towing application. So when it comes to towing in a truck, turbos are the best thing to have. When it comes to going fast at high rpms with a simple set up, superchargers are the way to go. Direct injection also does a good deal to increase fuel economy because it allows the engine to operate at higher compression ratios without knocking. A direct injected gas engine can run up to 2:1 higher ratio than a port injected engine. Hence the reason why the direct injected 2018+ coyote has a higher compression ratio than the older port injected one. Higher compression ratios increase the efficiency of an engine. The port injection is only added to the coyote because of emissions. However, the problem is that direct injection and higher compression ratios also increase power and people tend to like to use the added power.

I think the aftermarket is being moved to emission legal equipment. Not when comes to tuning which is required when you put forced induction on a naturally aspirated engine.

RE: Ford 7.3 gasohol engine 700HP! ?

Awesome! It did not take the aftermarket long to make aftermarket mods for this engine. I wonder how heavy you can tow with this thing. Either way, I bet it would be fun to drive. On a side note, there is no difference between a gas owner adding this to their truck and a diesel owner deleting their truck other than the fact that you will be able to see some of the added emissions coming out of the diesel(depending on the tune), but you won't with the gasser.

and the best part is you can buy the entire truck for less than a CP4 disaster! Actually this is not true I agree with Fish.

As others do not care what you do or would do... but it appears you can't help yourself from telling others that. But yet you told everyone what you were going to do and now you can't handle the feedback. I can handle the feedback which is why I responded that I don't give two schnits on what you while also saying Mahindra US being based in Michigan and Texas. I also pointed out that your favorite diesel engine is not even made in America either. You mean the diesel engine that pulled 30k lbs up the Ike in the shortest time and made the best fuel economy pulling 30k lbs. Got it... Yes, even the newest version that you don't even own and has worse fuel economy and has less power than the one I do own. It says a lot that you have to compare a engine with it's emissions equipment deleted with a after market tune and a after market built transmission to back up that power to a factory equipped truck. Got it... Not really. I am just comparing a trucks specs that I actually own and built myself not bragging about the specs on one that I don't. That's like a poser bragging about a new Corvette that he doesn't own to a person that built and nodded his own. You can't compare what you don't have.

RE: 2011 Ram HD 3500 DRW Cummins 68RFE 523k miles!

My position for selecting a truck is in the fine print... It's really that simple! Many people select a truck for many reasons. Some may select one because the truck was assembled in the US while the engine was assembled in Mexico. Some may only care if the company making it has its headquarters in the US(even though its shareholders are worldwide). Others select a truck because it has a reputation for being dependable like the one this thread is about and the thousands of others who has similar mileage. There's a really simple solution to your off road hunting needs but since you don't care about what others do I'm sure you can figure it out. As others do not care what you do or would do... but it appears you can't help yourself from telling others that.

RE: 2011 Ram HD 3500 DRW Cummins 68RFE 523k miles!

Find me a truck made 100% of US parts by a US base company and I'm in! :W Find me a an all steel diesel UTV with a manual transmission that can tow over 3,500 lbs with full floating front/rear axles made with 100% US parts by a US company. BTW... I've owned more GM vehicles than Fords so no big deal. So for now both GM and Ford is as close as it gets, while your brand gets controlled by the Europeans more and more. I have owned more Fords than Ram or GMs in the past, and I don't really care about the merger with European companies just as long as they put out a reliable product. People here seem to only care about this when it is convenient to their argument or their favorite brand, yet will turn around and buy clothes and other products made in China which is why I take their selective outrage with a grain of salt.

RE: 2011 Ram HD 3500 DRW Cummins 68RFE 523k miles!

I would like to buy it, but my next purchase is going to be a Roxor for the farm and deer lease. Reminds me of my old flat fender with 283! Roxor is Mahindra which is based in India. I would pass... Luckily for me, I don't give two schnits what you would do..... At least they are assembled in the USA unlike a certain V8 Ford diesel engine. The US Roxor is is assembled in the US under Mahindra Automotive North American based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Mahindra USA who makes the traitors/UTVs for the US is based in Houston, Texas. Bottom Line... India I'm shocked Ted Nugent is pushing these things! Bottom line. Powerstroke Hecho En Mexico, but you seem to not want to boycott that and move to a GM truck. You are picking and choosing when this matters to you.

RE: Diesel Brothers

Yeah, but that chip you used on your truck increased your stock power which also increased your emissions greater than stock which makes you no different than diesel brothers.Banks certified emissions legal, diesel brothers is not certified. Seems like a big difference to me. Banks quick spool is a turbo modification so why would the EPA certification number be affixed to the "rad cross member"? There is also no EPA certification for this part on the Bank's website or the 5" straight exhaust. He has also mentioned here and other forums that his truck is programmed or has a piggyback chip. It is hard to tell which because he differs in his terminology depending on which forum he is on. Either one for these would definitely put him over stock power levels and is essentially the same thing that the diesel brothers are doing. That is the drawback of using a unique name in every forum you belong to because people can look up your past posts with ease by Googling "sidecarflip tuner/chip/programmer". I can say that him and I would likely get along in the gun forums because it appears that we like the same type of guns. The sticker he is likely referring to is the OE sticker put on at the factory which has nothing to do with aftermarket mods put on after it left the factory. The 5" straight exhaust he has might have eliminated the oxidation catalyst as well depending on which state the truck originated from.

RE: Diesel Brothers

Blah, blah. Hey bub, I have the EPA certification number affixed to the rad cross member from Gale Banks pertaining to my truck and his aftermarket modifications. It don't use any oil and gets 21 empty. Want me to get it for ya, I can if you want it. Candidly, I don't care what rabbit hole you stick your head in either. Diesel Brothers were in violation and got caught, Plain and vrey simole. Yeah, but that chip you used on your truck increased your stock power which also increased your emissions greater than stock which makes you no different than diesel brothers. In regards oil, I am not talking about oil that gets used up by your truck. I am talking about the fact that you use three times as I do because not only do you have to put 3 more quarts in than I do, you also have to change it every 5k miles versus 15k in mine. As far as fuel, apparently you have some super special 7.3L because my father who owns a 2003 7.3, my brother in law who owned a 2001 7.3L, and my a cousin who owned 1998 7.3L could not get anywhere near what I currently get at the end of every tank(not just a highway section). Especially with these Texas 75 mph speed limits. Heck, even fuel shows an average of 13.6 mpg for the 7.3L while mine averages around 17 mpg at the end of every tank with mixed driving.

RE: 2011 Ram HD 3500 DRW Cummins 68RFE 523k miles!

Loved my 1st gen RAM. Two short comings were weak service brakes and no locking torque converter. Waste gated turbo housing got rid of turbo lag. When I finally took the deflector on the hood the windshield squirters worked. A friend of mine installed a lockup converter and switch on is 93. Made a world of difference when towing. He did not use it much when not towing. Seems like a modified valve body would be need also? Yeah, he bought the locking TC and new valvebody together from some company, and then customized the switch up by the gear selector. The TC itself had a much lower stall speed than the stock one so that in itself made a huge improvement.

My 2000 GM or 92 IHC are not rusty buckets. They have seen better day, have worked, made money etc.....But they do run etc. with that said, glad there are still some OLD vehicles on the road, saved from the junk yard etc by people that want to keep older rigs around. Marty Speaking of old trucks on the road, I wish I was lucky enough to come across this deal for $3,800. Would rather have a SRW, but I would not care for how clean this truck is. 1993 1st Gen 12v Cummins Dually Dream Truck Tour

RE: Diesel Brothers

Additionally, all my farm tractors are diesel as well and all are Tier2 (you know what that is?) If you don't' let me explain. They are all emissions exempt. Run fine but they do produce visible particulates (as all T2 engines do under load) so you can also buy me 3 new T4 compliant tractors to farm with along with a new T4 pickup truck and a comparable T 4 tractor to the ones I now own free and clear will set you back around an additional 250 grand plus the 80 or so for the pickup truck and I'll take them all to the shredder, no problem, you have the jack right? Duh Actually I do know a lot about diesel emissions. Not only have I worked for a diesel manufacturer for many years(Cummins), I have worked on the customer, dealer, and manufacturing side of various vehicles OE's from Ford to Peterbilt since I was 16 so well over two decades. I know full well what diesel emission regulations are, their actual impact, and how they came to be. I also have a farm/ranch with over 50 head of cattle and a JD 4430 with a cab. However, we are not talking about non-road tier 2 equipment. I am talking about your 97 truck that you chipped for increase power output that increased the emissions even more. Now before you go an say this truck was exempt from federal emissions, let me remind you of the diesel emissions standards of 1990 and 1994 which applies to your truck. You see, federal diesel emissions standards didn't just start after your truck was made, they started years before, but because they were considerably more strict after 2004 lowering limits below a gram, most people didn't know much about these years because stuff like EGR's and DPF's weren't required to meet these standards. For on road pickup diesel engines the major emission requirements for diesel engines are as follows- 1985, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2004, 2007, and 2011. Even though the EPA didn't start using the tier system until 1996, that does not mean prior years were exempt from emissions regulations. So not only were you emitting more than me stock, but even more so now that you chipped your truck (and do not comply with your year's PM/NOx requirement), you have higher fuel consumption, and you use over three times the oil. Yet, you are chastising me for dirtying your air.
