Fuel plate- 0 = lots of full load/throttle fuel!
AFC housing and starwheel tweaks = more preboost fuel (faster spoolup)
New era 370s = 370hp injectors (new era brand of course)

Sounds like a fairly stout truck... Should be a decent rig to rip around in

check to see if he tabbed the KIller Dowel Pin (KDP) or pulled it out. See what up grades are done to the tranny. If the tranny is stock it wont last long with those mods. See if its built up any. That would be good

412,000km on mine and runs like a top!


If you take car of them its not rare to see them go over a million miles and like said above, the truck will fall apart before the engine!
