Ryker Laaksonen: I've got a video of it running up. Ended up doing what you did, lifting it, and selling it :[ just found this reply from awhile back. Thanks for making me regret my decision! lol
Scfdr22: Stock HPOP?
QwikDzl: i ran this exhaust and i didnt have anything soot underneath, i was tired of my rear passenger tire being black all the time haha check out the video i have and you will see how much soot i have. i was surprised that nothing underneath was black. do you still have the exhaust in front of the wheel? i would love to see a video of it to see how it looks!
SINSTER7THREE: @Joseph Moore I wouldnt either. Id get a T4 mount or possibly a SD setup.
Joseph Moore: got the same set up just made 428/820 yesterday on the dyno and crap the exhaust wheel at 40 psi not to sure if im going to go back with the D66 though...
SINSTER7THREE: Lots of soot on the diff and shocks. Nothing on my tail gate. I dont run a rear bumper.
Ryker Laaksonen: I have a 96 with a 4" straight pipe that exits in front of the rear wheel. it sounds good, but im not sold on how it looks. Id kinda like to "hide" my exhaust the way you did by dumping it in front of the diff. My question is how dirty does this style exhaust make your truck underneath, and on the tailgate?
QwikDzl: i have the exact same truck with a d66 and same injectors, i broke 2 35psi autometer guages
SINSTER7THREE: I bet its under 40 pounds of boost easily though , respectively
SINSTER7THREE: No head studs!. I don't know how much boost, always forget to look @ WOT!
Kris Femenia: I gotcha!! Do you run headstuds? And how much boost on your d66?
SINSTER7THREE: I meant all 7.3s can be different. Not all 7.3s with no headstuds would be blowing a head gasket @ 500rwhp. it can go either way...with any motor really.
Kris Femenia: How is every truck different?
SINSTER7THREE: I think you'll be alright with 43 pounds of boost. but if you are making 550 rwhp with stock head bolts you might be pushing it. Every truck is different.
SINSTER7THREE: I think stock head studs are good til 500ish. Then do pushrods and valve springs while you are there
Kris Femenia: Ats**
Kris Femenia: With no headstuds? And yeah i have a bd triple disc with torque lock and its clutch packs.
SINSTER7THREE: Not sure about how much boost a 7.3 can hold since boost doesn't equal power. Your turbo is a different story, if you have the proper tuning your stock turbo could last for a while.
SINSTER7THREE: A built tranny wouldn't hurt of course. However, a good triple disk TC and valve body could get you by for a while
