1600 Degrees!!!

718 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Diesel Nut
I got a #10 plate with afc and plate full forward. I just installed my 4k gsk and took it for a spin. I was not paying attention :banghead: and was watching my tach and I glance over at the pyro (I'm just shifting into fifth) at it reads 1600 degrees. I imediatly let off and throw it in neutral and coast. couldn't of been there for more then a few seconds. Truck is running fine, was is the chance that i damaged something? Will it be ok?

Also after this episode i i slid the afc housing back, which significantly dropped power, now there is not even a little smoke should i slide the afc back forward and just take it easy? and i know i need a turbo.

thanks for reading and giving me some help:thumbsup:

I am assuming you are on the stock turbo and stock timing. I think you need to bump your timing to about 19* and run your boost up to about 35 psi. I think that should take care of it.
