looking forward to get our 310 HP 605 torque back on the road the 22nd for another 6 months. It towed what we had and now have good enough for me. chevman

Next February I will be out of warranty. If I want more power it will be easy to obtain.


We just had a Kenworth deleted ….. left the power alone as it was the unreliability of the def system that was causing us grief. Another unit was a little short on getty up so we had it deleted along with a serving of 100 hp. Up here the pickups are cheaper to replace than keep which removes much of the incentive out of deleting. Looks like I’ll have to make do with 475 Hp.

And a fine pulling engine it is.
But your engine with a 200hp tune is really fun!

With the auto manufacturers now committed to electrification powering their vehicles along with the future of half ton truck diesels being questionable, I can't help but wonder if it's time for these medium duty diesel trucks to start focusing on improving fuel economy and even simplify the emissions systems on these trucks.

Gotta love improvements.
Remember when the 1989 Dodge Cummins with 3 speed trans and a whopping 160 Hp/400ft/lbs was the cats meow?


Just used my 1992 to tow our toy hauler to a campground for the weekend. Being in California it does all right and while I see guys towing at 75mph that's just not my style. Also the fact my truck only goes about 70mph helps ??

I've never had it on dyno but she's got 50 horse injectors, HE351 turbo, full 4" exhaust including down pipe and a few other odds and ends.

There are no loads a regular license can pull that *need* 505 hp.


505 hp / 1085 lbft of torque would come in handy pulling a 20,000 lb toyhauler up a 6% grade.

Exactly. If one is needing a new truck and needs to brag about economy or saving the rainforests or something other than mo' power, I hear Toyota has a nice new pickup!
