#100 Fuel Plate**Still Not Enough Power**

I have a 95 2500 4x2 auto. I installed a #100 plate and starwheel full forward. I was expecting some crazy power from doing this, but really have been pretty disappointed in the power difference. Can anyone help with this? I have noticed if I WOT it acts like it doesn't want to go until I let off the throttle and allow it to shift. Don't really know if this has anything to do with it. The truck is stock besides the fuel plate. Stock Trans, Airbox, and I know I need gauges. They are coming.

With a stock air intake that thing has got to be running hot. are you running the plate full foward? There are other pump tweaks you can do, and Govener springs and turbo stuff, i.e. boost elbow. I'm still pretty new to all this but check out the set ups in some of the other guys sigs and see what they have along with the #100 FP. endless mods you can do.

well your trans doing that is fairly normal, you may need a new TPS tho, a fuel plate essentially wont give you power through the range of the entire power band..its really just WOT, but your stock trans wont be helping a whole lot..if you start to go anything over that plate your t/c's gonna be slipping if it aint already, open up the restrictions, your exhaust and intake. i have a feeling if youd disable your wastegate you would feel alot more power or even just that elbow would help, once you get gauges you can get a better diagnoses of where your at

I would get a set of 3 or 4K springs and that will let you fuel a lot harder

clamp off that wastegate line and get a 3kgsk in that pump and at least a converter and valve body in that dang trans then you'll feel the power actually getting to the ground.

Also you need to open up that air flow ASAP

I did forget to mention I do have a boost elbow that came with the plate. I did slide the plate full forward, just to see if I had any difference from stock position with new plate. Really no noticeable gain. I have deleted the cat and muffler, but still am restricted on the airbox. I know the tranny is probably what's holding back the "DAMN THAT'S FAST", so I guess I will have to fork over some cash to get the WOT to make me smile!!!

Get a BHAF If you don't want to spend alot of $ for an air filter. They work great. And get those gauges installed asap!

Its your stock auto's fault. It absorbs most the power you have. My truck when it had the auto was a slug until it locked up. How's your truck once the Torque converter locks up?

My dad and I have a 95 4x2 auto that i just put guages, 370's and laser cuts in over the weekend. We haven't touched the plate, afc, or starwheel at all. It turns out to be a pretty good ride for whats done to it. We picked this truck up for $500 by the way... WOOT!!!

Truck does pretty good when TC locks. I know it will be the tranny that is causing my loss of power. I run it til it dies, then spend the money! Thanks for the help.

I had the exact same problem with my 95. I did the Fuel plate, GSK, and 60# valve spring and guages. The first time I drove it It was a complete dog, felt as slow as factory. It would make no black smoke at all and ran like 1350 degrees pre turbo doing 60mph on the highway. Boost never went over 10 pounds either. To say it bluntly I was mad and was gonna pull it all out and demand my money back.

At this point I still had the stock exhaust and was planing on stacks anyways, so I just sawz-alled the exhaust off where the downpipe connects to the cat. Took it for a drive and could not believe the difference. I mashed the throttle in 3rd gear (manual) and the boost went straight to 41 pounds and i broke the tires loose at about 35 mph. Black smoke like crazy. Did the BHAF and it cut down on the black smoke and dropped EGTs over 100 degrees.

To morale of my story is, ditch your factory exhaust! If you truck has high mileage like mine does, then your muffler is probably packed full of black soot and carbon and you are effectively putting an insane amount of backpressure on the engine. I tipped my muffler on end and banged it on the cement floor and piles of black crap came pouring ut of it.
