More HP and TQ

2424 Views 32 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  DIESELDREW24
I was watching on youtube and seen an 89 non IC dodge that got about 430HP and 730TQ and was wondering what it takes to get these kind of power numbers out of a VE pump???
I have a 92 IC dodge and was just wondering a way to get more power and what other people out there have done.

The short answer is injectors, turbo upgrade, pump tuning, and all the supporting parts (fuel supply, built trans or clutch, intake exhaust, etc...)

You either set the truck up with the right combination of parts, use chemical intercooling (water meth, NOS), or ignore the EGTS......

How much is that intercooler really helping you sitting still on a dyno?

For a 15 sec burst of power (dyno, drag race, sled pull) an intercooler isn't that important. Lots of dedicated pullers and drag trucks dont have them.

Now, they do help you utilize the power for longer. Thats why you need them to run high horsepower on the highway.

All I'm saying is intercoolers don't hinder you making power in short bursts....

Just wondering what you guys think he may have done and if you read in the info there is no IC and no water/Meth.

even with a non ic. you can run some 6x16's and have s300 with the 62 mm comp wheel and make that power. also you would turn up pump. bump timing all the way to the head. put a big lift pump on it. 1/2inch fuel lines. etc

I thought Bill ran the cummins water to air cooler some? Not sure on that run.

I would say that an intercooler does add to the power rating even in short bursts. It does cool the charge air and cooler air makes more power.

Well, true, but what about sitting still on the dyno? And going 15 mph down a sled pulling track?

I know lots of folks use fans on the dyno...but it would take a hell of a fan to equal the air forced through an intercooler at just 40 mph.

So how much power could you make with just 6x16 and an HX35
