Is that an OM617? What's your turbo upgrade. Who's the noble faired, long-haired leaping gnome? You? Looks great. How does it pull?
it sounds way different my 79 300sd too mainly becouse of the air box i have hot air intake as you can see couldnt fit the air box to that turbo and i dont have a down pipe yetSure sounds different than my car? Keep us posted on how this swap does on the road. Randy
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_siyBDyrMkI here it is at 80ish i got ac lines made $$$$ rented a broken vacume pump wasted a new evaporator and oriface meter filter thing made me very mad im waiting on a not broken vacume pump , evaporator. meter thing. i installed the snow performance mpg max kit junk....junk walmart wirecrimps goop........... goop on $1000 kit. i dont use crimps i solder my wires labor is love the controller box is bad from snow performance the want me to take my kustom fake ostritch skin dash apart three times i installed the defective unit that was on back order 2 months they want me to uninstall it mail it back to them put my dash back together drive with no egt guage wait for a new one take it apart reinstall put it back agian dont do business with them unless you got time and money at the same time for a long time. wire crimps and goop two things a professional should never use.I like what you have done so far. Keep us posted I am debating a 1/2 ton dodge swap to have A/C even though the jeep i built works good.
When Dodge put the cummins in the first gen 5.9,it had a 21 cm exhaust housing...and went down to a 18cm,when the HX35 was installed,it had a 12cm2 wastegated housing,and the auto trucks from about 94 had the HY35's with a 9cm2 wastegated housing,,,the Hy's had a real fast boost,but spiked the egt's..but not so high as to be a problem with the engine,because they were under factory warrenty...so,Dodge had a turnaround from low (boost) slow (large housing) to higher (boost,)and smaller faster exhaust housing,.....so how do you figure that comment you made will overstress the engine with high egt's??? What would you offer as a substitute turbo?? Size/housing....etc??Maybe a brand,or series....
jubel is out watching cartoons.....can't/won't explain reasoning of his comment.Its obstruction to just say it won't work,but never offer an alternative solution.....happy happy joy joy,he aint....i have a snow performance mpg max w/m injection system with it i never get above 1100 towing my camper or boat with it off or out of water i can to 1350 easily but no higher i agree its to big for a single but would be a good low pressure turbo in a compound set up. i now 7000 miles on the swap no real problems to date. if i run 50/50 w/m it feels like my 86 silverado with a 350 still in it. jubel are you om617?
