squigi1 Compounds are worth every penny makes towing seem like no effort from the truck idk how much of a difference wise it is on an 03 vs 06 but mine is a tow pig with the set up I have it tows a minimum of 10k almost daily and I maxed it out last weekend with 12K on the trailer so with trailer weight itself plus load was at 17.5k pulling weighed in at 25.7k total set cruise at 70MPH had no issues whatsoever got 9.9MPG (hand cal) over 230mile trip. Plus best part of compounds makes the truck even more fun when or if you bring it to Mexico

I just hate the thought of loosing all that bottom end and so I was just starting to research compounds . Huh

Thanks again for the info , guess the only thing to do is be a good little boy and ask Santa for some NICE presents !!
HE351 over S475 should be a great setup. Best of both worlds. At times I have considered going smaller than my 62.

oldmanram The reason I'm curious is that you also have a 2003 , so it's more like comparing apples to apples , instead of an '06 or 2010 , thank you for the info .......... Let me think on it overnight , PM me what you would like to get for them .......

Ow and are you still running the HE341 turbo ? again just curious , I'm getting ready to put a HE351 on my truck ........
Just need some time ..................................................

Thank You again !!!

I have a 2003 (almost 200K miles) and was thinking when it's time to change them out maybe I go with the 50+ 's
I just turned 205k all my miles I am the original owner. It did increase 2 miles per gallon with the 50+s. let me make you a great deal.

Gator1 That's a good time to do it since it's broke in. I got better mileage with bigger injectors by taking advantage of the extra torque, and keeping the rpms lower.

And that was after over $2000 for new wheels and tires!


My shaft is going out fast, the dead spot is getting worse. I wonder what the changes are the 05 and 08 share the same shaft

Nice looks setup you got there btw

It will go away as you forget what it was like. Same thing for me when going from hotter tunes to the slow and efficient stock(ish) tune I keep it on now. But after a month I can even tell. I also wanted zero visible smoke off the line.
