Good, 600 ponies would have given us a birds eye view of the insides of a 7.3 with PMR's!

It's a full built motor by Wide Open Performance. As long as the block holds together we should be okay.

I already got rid of the 38R, it's too good of a turbo to have sitting around. That 38R is an awesome turbo, it just wasn't big enough anymore.

I ran the 38R with mini me injectors, and yes it would surge. But you would have to make it. Intentially lug the motor down on a steep grade. Under normal driving conditions it never surged.

I've got a buddy that has the 38R with stock injectors and it's never surged ever. I don't think there is a better turbo out there for anything smaller than hybrid injectors. No complaints from me.

Even with my HUGE stage V injectors it still did pretty well...

Yeah, I hope it works good. I'll take some pictures of it when Im at WOP tomorrow, and try to take some video while I'm in Cali. Hopefully be able to film a 600hp run on the dyno:thumbup:

JD Wop-your just mad because you took the easy route to 600hp. It's okay that you're jealous my PStroke will eat your Common Rail for lunch

And thanks to the new charger I ended up running a 13.1@102 down in California saterday. Truck weighs 7780 pounds so it should be up around 560hp on fuel.

Here's a video, this was my slowest run of the day. The 6.0 I'm racing was spraying 150hp of nitrous

Yeah, it's definalty not small. And with all that smoke all the way down the track, I'm still in need of a bigger one, or some N20. :lol:

This truck will never see nitrous though. Fuel only, bottles are for babies
