Drive Pressure Question

721 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  rjp
I am doing some upgrades to the truck soon and am trying to line up my game plan.

I will be deleting the truck, adding an XRT Pro, gauges, adding head studs and an exhaust waste gate. Question is will I need to have a gauge to continuously monitor the drive pressures or do a temporary setup to do the initial adjustments and then forget about it?

Not doing anything crazy as far as build goes and just want a good running dependable tow rig without all the epa crap on the truck.

Unless you plan on running it ridiculously hard I wouldn't run one period. If your not running ATT I wouldn't run a wastegate either. Just my opinion anyway.

Without ATT in wild/3 I rarely see boost over 30 psi towing max is about 34-35 and that's pushing it hard.
Not gonna flog the crap out of it, but figured that adding the wastegate couldn't hurt and is still cheaper than doing a head gasket. Between the adding of studs and the wastegate, I should be fairly safe. Just not sure if it is a parameter that should be monitored all the time or just during initial setup. Thanks

Do it all if budget allows you will thank your self later honestly don't do waste gate and god rid of the vgt turbo I know the brakes is cool but go with a sb66 Orr something similar never have a problem again after studs and a turbo
Yeah, that's not in the budget unfortunately. Good thought none the less, thx.

Could someone explain to me why this got moved to the 3rd gen section? This was posted in the 4th gen section and refers to a 4th gen truck, confused?
