Have you changed your blinker fluid lately?Going out today to make some video for YouTube channel. Will try and get posted today or at least this weekend. Truck will be down for awhile after Monday. Getting Redhead steering gearbox, rare parts adjustable track bar and blinker/wiper switch. Oh and Scheid Stage 2 VP 44 upgrade.
I almost find it comical that you’re too wrapped up in my arbitrary horsepower guess to see what it is that I’m trying to tell you with regards to heat vs energy.540 is an embarrassing number.......on your part! Trying to save you some dignity. I did a full on boosted launch yesterday........add 200 to your guess you might get close. Front end wants to come off ground....at least it launches feeling that way. 540 will not do that on a 6800 pound truck. Fact!
Tell Scheid, Firepunk, Zeigler, a hotter engine makes more power and they should stop spraying nitrous, water and ice in their tanks and spray hot air into cylinder and see what they tell you!
Oil temp is important and so is heat in the cylinders.Way back in the day........Lenny Reed told me he would not warranty bhis work if i didnt let the engine oil pressure come down which takes warming up??? There are more than one reason to warm up an engine.
Also in regards to timing as was stated the edge and Scheid pump both add timing so explain how that all factors in to engine temperature for ignition timing based on temperature?????
Why do the manufacturers even use a intercooler at all. Why not simply run a hot as possible engine for the all powerful hot as hell engine????
Take the oxygen away from the intake charge is where you lose power???
Everybody remember shop in school and learning how to use a cutting torch. What did you get when you turned on the acetalyne without oxygen. Black soot and a cold flame. What happened when you turned up the OXYGEN!!! Fire.......hot fire and power. Take the oxygen out of the equation as in a hot air charge you get black soot low energy mess of puke!!!
Are you familiar with Larry the Cable Guy?Then you better explain yourself.......the whole world wants to know now including me. If i say or imply something wrong or not supported by science or trial and error, i need to know so as to not condone something that is wrong????
