umm i heard of people removing it completley. just depends on the truck i "heard" i dont run that. i have the 4k Springs and i got a fair amount of power out of it. truck dosnt clear up at the top end just a little grey when floored. only problem i had but was said to be expected was i had to turn up my idle to like 900 becuase it would die, still have to hold the gas when i go in reverse. and about the 60lb. springs. i dont have them and i was told i dont need them but it couldnt hurt. my experince!
The only way to gain power is to add fuel. A plate allows more fuel at wide open throttle.
Warning! The oem trans and/or clutch can not hold the power potential of the Cummins. The auto trans will only hold about 50 more hp from stock, while the clutch will hold a little more than that before it slips.
Removing the plate is a bad idea, you risk damage to the pump and a runaway motor. Run a 0 or 100.
Get the springs with the 4kGSK, anything over 3400rpm needs them.
The GSK kit allows full fuel flow through the rpm range, rather than defueling at about 2600. It also allows faster acceleration of the motor.
If it doesn't idle properly, the settings are off.
I floated the valves above 3700 rpm and 58 psi of boost 60# springs fixed that but know my fuel pump floats there was a guy that took the cam plate out aroud here and his engine ran away and broke a rod.
engines running away is the main concern..... if you do take it out..... take off the intake too so that if it does run away you can put a 2X4 across the intake to shut the motor off...... make sure that you have it ready of you can break a rod too.....
No the P-7100 will not float like a valve. The pump is run off the Cam gear. The Cam gear is a press on gear and has been known to slip (in which case the timing is retarded) on the most modestly modded cummins motors. The P-Pump itself has a small cam shaft but would in no way float any "valves".
i know the p pump is gear driven but the lift pump is ran off the cam and at high rmps it floats and i loose fuel presser. the valves i was floating were intake or exhaust valve i never said that my injection pump was floating i ment to say lift pump. but i will check timing to see if it sliped i know that it is very commin for that to happen if there is a little oil on the taperd shaft it will slip
I normally run a 10 plate in my truck but i recently took the plate out and its alot of fun and has a ton of power but it makes my clutch slip and I personally dont like the idea of running no plate for a permanent set up. I just wanted to see what it would do with no plate and im putting my 10 back in soon. How do you guys like the 100 plate? I thought about running one of those.
Hey folks, I’m currently building a 94 12v engine to drop in my 1st gen dually. It’s my first engine build and have some questions.

So I took what I assumed was the original fuel lift pump off my sons project truck ( its covered in black paint like the rest of the engine) to do a spring upgrade.
But this things looks different from what pulled off my other truck and the pictures I've seen online. There's no separation...
From what I gather 1300 F is the accepted sustained EGT limit for the 12 valve (with brief excursions higher than 1300 being acceptable, but discouraged).
But what is the basis or limiting component? And can that limiting component be changed/ upgraded to allow for a higher limit?
Is the turbo...
Any one try this combo? I am currently not running a fuel plate in my 95 dodge and have ordered the aforementioned items from PDD. Will my truck be happy set up like this egt wise? Any guesstimates on power it might make?
hey guys wanted get some info on what exactly I need to get this swap going. I have a 96 reg cab dually with 5.9 gas motor automatic that I want to pull out and do a 12v swap to it. I'd like keep it auto but if its gonna save me money ill do a 5speed. So like figure out what all I need to get so...
