What in the hell are you asking? None of your post made any sense.The general thumb rule is not to go over 1.5 hp per cubic inch. Can someone explain how some guys are making bout 570hp with everything stock?
If I wanted to run a sts on my truck to make a good 420 horses, what would be some good precautions?
I've never even heard of the 1.5 rule. That may some old hot rodder's saying, but it certainly doesn't apply now a days. Like LiftedLQ9 said and has proven, you can make big horse power on a stock block.Ok thanks man. Random Hero, chill out sorry if my post didn't make sense. I was asking that how do guys run big horsepower numbers on stock blocks, if the general thumb rule is to only run 1.5hp's per cubic inch on stock blocks. So if someone is making more than that per cubic inch, how can they do that? That's what I was asking. Sorry if it didn't make sense man.
They're pretty damn loud. Honestly I like the sound of cats at part idle better, but at idle and at WOT it's pretty nasty.Ok thanks man. Yeah it may be an old saying then. Just making sure man, I dont wanna blow up my engine! LOL Hey quick question, how much did those pacesetter headers affect your hp and sound? Thanks
Yup I broke my 3-4 clutch pack over Christmas. If you do anything over 400 rwhp I would consider swapping to a 4l80e. It's the cheapest and strongest option without sacrificing much.Ha sweet man! Have you damaged your tranny yet? Cause if I put a turbo a good tranny is a must I assume.
Wow those exact numbers for every truck at every boost level?!?!?! Sounds like you have a TON more reading to do.With their base system you get 324 horses and 373tq. to the rear wheels, not at the crank. If you put an Intercooler you get 372hp and 453tq. Stock it's 224hp and 252tq to the rears. Plus like you said the added bounus... the turbo sound.
I just don't like the idea of an electronically ran oil pump. Gravity fed oil setups are the most simple and are much less of a hassle.Hey thanks man. I'm really looking into turbocharging now. Info like this will help on my decision. STS claims they have the best hp per pound and that their systems run cooler than the competition. and what's wrong with their oil pump setup? (sts doesn't have much info on their site) 5000 dollars is my budget.
True...in that case look into a Trick or KBracing kit. STS used to be real big, a lot of people that were running them have now switched to front mounts. The biggest problem with the sts kit is the oil pump like stated. If the oil pump goes out, then you could possibly be saying bye bye to the turbo and engine. Rear mounts also have a lot more piping to deal with, as well as some lag. Front mounts will have higher under hood temps though.Try and keep him over here. This site needs way more performance talk
