Hi all, Ive been searching this site all morning and have yet to seen a picture thread. The point of this is Im about to buy a 1990 single cab 4x4 and was wondering what all of yalls rigs looked liked, so id you would post them. Thanks
1992 Single Cab LB 4x4 5spd pump turned up a bit, custom intake, 4' DE Exhaust, DennyT Fuel Pin, 3.54 gears, leveled in front, JI Flatbed
(NEW) 1998 Ex. Cab LB 2500 4x4 5spd stock 12V w/132K Grail Truck

93 W350 ext cab dually, getrag and a few adjustments
I'm in the 425 HP range and one of my Dyno runs about a year ago had a torque of 1080. This was a verbal number only and I do not have a sheet to back it up. They were having problems with the dyno so that number is a little in doubt.
My goal was to get to 1000# of torque at the lowest HP.
Right now the truck is Detuned and the big injectors are back out and in the bo and I have the 185's in for better economy and lower heat when towing the travel trailer. I had Stomps injectors installed, the ones he made 680 HP with a few years ago. I now have a set of New Era 435's as well as a modified set of DDP stage 4's to play with.
The auto tranny makes things seem a bit soft, just doesn't transfer the power the way a manual tranny does.
Track times? - slow. I am having problems with the top end falling off. I put in a piston pump but can still drop the fuel pressure to about 5 PSI at full throttle with the big injectors. I am in the very high 14's and only 89 MPH.
With 60+ psi of boost, the truck should pull better on the top end than it does.
93 D250, PDR Twins HX35&HT3B, 60+# boost,PDR stage 2 head w/o-rings, PDR Cam, modified VE Pump, piston style lift pump, modified 5" intake w/AFE, ATS ported manifold,DTT 89% converter, 4" RIP exhaust, modified tranny, EGT/boost/tranny/tach gauges, TPS removed, a little chrome under the hood.
