Possible guess at power numbers?

Hey guys, just got a new truck since I sold my 2001. This is a 2002 quad cab short bed and previous owner gave me a list of things that have been done and was wondering if anyone might have a rough idea of what kind of power the truck makes. The modifications he gave me are as follows:
-Air Dog 250
-Hot Rod Pump
-Polished intake horn
-custom hamilton cam
-hamilton push rods
-head has been machined and o-ringed
-bored 20 over with polished crank
-boost fooler
-250 injectors
-air intake
-4 inch turbo back
-stock turbo

Thanks!


So what if I buy a big truck to compensate for something.

No idea but I bet it's hot. They must have pulled the turbo and sold it before you bought the truck

Do you mean to say that I should look into getting a bigger turbo for the truck so the EGT's stay down? Sorry for not understanding too much, only my 2nd truck in many many years.

Yes. If the withstanding modifications are legitimate then the truck is already built, I would say it had twin turbos or a large single. No reason to do all of those mods and leave a stock turbo on it lol

That, and so you can actually get the power out of the available fuel.

He gave me a 62mm that needs rebuilt that he was going to put on it. I myself wasn't looking for a "built" truck but it was a fairly good deal compared to what other stock or just over stock trucks are going for in my area so I bought it. I very rarely "get on it" if only to pass people who are going too slow. Do you think I could hurt the engine if I don't put a bigger charger on it? Or will it be fine if I don't drive it very hard?

Any idea if it has head studs? If not you should look into those along with a turbo asap. With a stock turbo, I don't know if anyone will be able to guess what numbers your at but I'm sure it is definitely hot. Do you have an egt guage?

Yes it does have head studs. I have an EGT gauge. It is the pillar gauge and not a digital gauge so I am usnure how much inaccuracy there could be, the highest I have seen it get is 1000 to1100 going up a large hill around 55-60 mph. Around town on flat surface doing 45 to 50 miles an hour it stays under 700.

You won't hurt it as long as you have en egt gauge and keep an eye on it. I fail to believe somebody would put a hotrod pump, Hamilton cam, push rods, etc without doing head studs. It's easy to tell just look at your head bolts and see if there studs or bolt heads.

if what you listed is actually true then you are VASTLY overfueled and yes you could run into issue.

However if you are actually able to drive this truck without smoking out EVERYTHING then you don't have 250 hp injectors.


EDIT: yea no way you have that big of injectors with those EGTS on a stock turbo.

Just don't go over 1600 for long periods. You'll be fine driving around, just towing might get hot

So more likely to have 100 horse injectors then?
