i am lookin at buying a 3600 or 3850 12cb and i was wonderin if i HAVE to upgrade my input shaft....i read on south bends website that dodge 5 speeds must have shaft upgrade....any input?
I have the 3250 & have pulled 5 times since it was installed along with alot of heavy towing. The plates were impressive when pulled out this week. Doug at ADT said that he is impressed how they aren't blued or anything. I am staying with the 3250, smooth as silk & holding up great. My brother has the 3600 & you sure don't want to be caught in a long traffic jamb with that one, very jumpy pulling out & backing up trailers. If not a DD, I would go with a 3850 to get the added holding power.yeah.....end of story, the shaft is goin in for sure, now i just cant decide on a 3600 or 3850? i dont daily drive the truck, its more of a really expensive hobby to be honest....any ideas
The 3250 feels a little stiffer then stock. The 3600 isn't too much harder, but tough in traffic after about 10 minutes of stop & go. The 3850 is a clutch for the real men, I don't think they should be a street clutch. Atleast not in my truck. Don't get me wrong, they aren't gonna take everything you have to press the clutch. Just not a comfortable driver like my 3250.how much more stiff is the 3600, then the 3850?....would it be a pain in the @$$ to drive?....or is it still driveable, i only plan on makin between 550-650 horse
Good choice. I haven't been on a dyno in 2 years, back then I had a Edge comp, same injectors, holley blue, HTB2 62/65/12 @ 45psi & got 476hp/936lbft. I should be over 500hp now after adding Airdog, AFE Stage 2, Adrenaline, SS 62/71/14 @ 52psi boost.i appreciate your help 724....i think the 3600 is probably the best for clutch for my set-up, i do a lot of pullin and i think the 3600 will be plenty of clutch for my setup with a set of injectors and a htt turbo.....what kind of numbers are u puttin down?
