You could get close to 200 RWHP..
Yea 90+ gas

That much around town all the time would be awesome. The better mpg with the UDP would be really nice filling up with 91 all the time. As long as the cam doesnt hurt the mpg too much
It probably would help mpg,the 10:1 would for sure..you may get away with 89 if your just regular driving, not getting on it or climbing step hills..90+ for sure on track though
Will i still be able to pass emissions here in Colorado?
I cant say for 100%,i dont know anyone thats had it tested..
The 410 has passed emissions and its very similar to the 422,has same lift on intake i believe. .both cams have 0 overlap so they both sould really pass
Is that 200 RWHP at sea level or up here at 5800ft?
Sea level and being you 4x4 it will be little lower,probably more 180ish....200 RWHP is more for a 4x2 at sea level
Jd, do you have a bottle heater for your nitrous bottle?
I do not currently . .i do have a gauge on the bottle and a torch..i typically dont do enough back to back runs or is it cold enough here..
I'll most likely just get a bottle heater. I don't feel comfortable heating it with a torch.
Ideal pressure is around 900 psi correct?
950-1,000 dont think altitude matters
I wanted to replace the valve cover gaskets and decided to paint them and the throttle body while I had them out. I want polish the the upper intake manifold but haven't done that just yet
Everything is back in. Really like how everything turned out
Thinking about making or buying a throttle body spacer, drill into it, and sticking the NX shark nozzle in it or a more stealthier approach and not to having to drill into the intake tube. Any benefits to this? How did you make yours out of a spare fuel rail?
No i use a tb spacer as well..dont know if there is any real benefits but definitely cleaner
Bottle pessure gauge and adapter came today. Glad to finally have one. Hope knowing bottle pressure and how much it needs to be heated up on cool nights will hopefully improved ETs and/or consistency.
Headed out to Julesburg Dragstrip on Saturday for the season opening test and tune day. The track is about 2300 feet lower than Bandimere so hoping to take advantage of that and the cool weather they're suppose to have. Will post ET's on Saturday.
Fun day at the track. Total of seven runs. Had some trouble early on on with traction. First three runs I was spinning pretty badly at launch which i think had to do with getting water on my tires when trying to get around the burnout box. My previous best ET at was 16.27 at 83 MPH. The four solid runs I ran 16.084, 16.080, 16.24, and 16.25. Below I posted the timeslips, the 3rd one to the right had my best 60' foot time of 1.981 which could've been a 15 second run if i hadn't missed 3rd gear
Short video from today:
Do you still have your spare tire under the truck?? If so it ditch it on race day,hell id take the passengers seat and rear seat out also..only 4 bolts and your be surprised how much weight those 3 items will cut..
I always take my spare out but never taken my passenger seats out. Might try that next time. Yesterday was the first time with the pressure gauge. Don't have a bottle heater but need to get one. Tried reusable back warmers but running the heat in my car seemed to work better. Couldn't get it up to 950psi so there's still some horsepower potential there
What can i do to improve my 60ft times? My 1.981 60' was my personal best. Normally I'm in the 2.2 range.
Better tires or gears or cut weight
Going out for a test and tune night tomorrow. First time back at Bandimere this season. Gonna race my Dad in his 2015 Explorer XLT to see who's faster. I think it will be a pretty close race. Took out my front passenger seat, weighs about 45 lbs and my spare which weighs 50lbs. I didn't bother taking out my rear seats because I don't think they're heavy enough to go through the pain of getting them out. Also tomorrow I'll drive my Explorer on the scale at the track to finally know what this things weighs. Should be a fun day, as always I'll post videos and timeslips.
Another fun night. Had some trouble early on with the nitrous solenoid not firing but soon figured that out. Didn't get to weigh my Explorer because apparently it is only used for Jr. dragsters and has a limit of 2200 lbs. Here's a video of me racing my Dad in his 2015 Explorer XLT. Note the numbers on the board are 60' times not reaction times.
I'll post timeslips and two more videos tomorrow.
