With the set up it has now it should easily spin a s363 or s366 and dramatically decrease the egts but I'd recommend throwing some studs on it as well though to stay safe.

Wire that wastegate shut for now. That’ll keep help with the egts some.

I’ll do studs for sure before I turn it up anymore.

Lil J it’s already turnt. 35psi. That’s about all I want to push on a HX35. I’ll use a fuel plate to control the heat when I tow or what not.

Truck has been solid as can be. The one problem I had was the ignition switch stranding me on a beach at low tide about 6 miles from anything. Lesson learned. Fixed it on the beach and now have a spare switch behind the seat.

Other than that, it's 100 miles a day still. Almost 300,000 miles.

I’m telling you fucking cummins is no joke. That motor is dead nuts reliable and it’s super beefy. When I get back from oversea I have to finish parting my crashed truck and get rolling on swapping the 6 door. Hopefully it’ll be much faster this time as I have already done it once.

Hell yea I’m ready to see that project rolling. Going to be a cool ride.

I’ve been reading all I can on some compound s300/s400 action. Going to get some studs ordered and give this thing the air it needs haha

Oh yea, I bought a roller 2500 a while back. Going to swap the 3.55 axles in place of my current 4.10’s. Will be limited slip in place of my current locker as well.

I’ll post the Dana 60 and 80 up here for sell once I yank them
