you seem to be mad that I’m not responding the way you want.

Like I said before I’m not interested in arguing with you.
Mad? Nah, this is a forum dude. If I were in Texas, I would gladly sit down with you, have a beer and talk trucks. I seriously mean that.

I just find your style of replying to be mystifying. You make underhand statements constantly, then when called out, you deflect and only reply to whatever suits your cause to the day. You try to hold other's accountable, but don't ask the same of yourself.

On the actual topic of this thread, Tuning has been going pretty well and Dyno is set for May 31st. So we should be able to see what HO turbo's can do on a Gen 1, spinning 34" AT Tires.

pointing out things i see isn’t underhanded, it’s called sharing information.

my posting “style” hasn’t changed, you can call it this that or whatever you want.

You keep making these statements about me changing my story/stance constantly.

Like I said before, just because you don’t like what I’m saying doesn’t mean what I said was inaccurate or false.

Deflection and misdirection, nah

beers and truck talk yes.

It's the statements where you don't point out things, but make underhanded comments like Post #210. I provided actual examples of items that RMB has worked on, are in folks motors and you had to make a absolutely asinine over the top response.

I'm not saying your changing your story at all. I'm saying that you deflect and try to point the finger somewhere else when you're being held accountable for your statements. Again, Post #210 is a great example.

Not trying to argue, just asking you to provide a straight forward response that includes a actual answer. You want to state your opinion, absolutely 100% part of a discussion. Just back it up.

But whatever, it's a forum. Who cares.

Genuinely curious, but what has Justin Wheeler done?

I guess Ryan doing Pistons, Rings, Cams, Rods, Heads and cylinder bracing to his specs is nothing then?

EDIT: and 4.2 Stroker Cranks, Billet 3.5 Cranks, Spec King Bearings....man it's a long list!
I didn't know he designed and manufactured: Pistons, Rings, Cams, Rods, Heads and cylinder bracing, crank and billet cranks.

I was under the impression that he got all of those from companies designed and manufactured them.

Did he invent the ecoboost as well?
not sure what changed in my story

im curious on why the Full race Drop in upgrades are double the price on the 17+ vs the 11-16 3.5L
They are from Precision Turbo and they set the pricing. Looks to me like Precision thinks there is a market for them, but time will tell when the price starts dropping.

Check out what GearHead tuning is doing too. Probably worth the call if you’re looking at options.

what are the airflow gains?
At least 5lbs/min per turbo on the compressor side, but then you are bumping against the flow limit of the modified (but still stock size) turbine. The good news is that there is plenty of compressor margin to give similar power output at altitude as available at sea level.

Price per power gain doesn't seem to fit currently. Doesn't seem to be much further than the 2018 HO turbo. CAI and good exhaust taking some stress off ive seen upwards of 60lbs/min range??

Extra 10 lbs/min is 100 hp on pump gas capability.... And I'm comparing stock turbo tune kept below 220000 rpms as well. Above that rpm starts to accelerate wear on the center section greatly...

Gen2 turbos have been working well, but I have plans to go bigger. Last Dyno was a year ago and did 509whp. Some changes since then put it around 530whp. Not gonna Dyno it until my warped CRP manifolds are replaced and bigger turbos are in.

Which turbos did you use, ? Gen2 stock raptor turbos, with crp exhaust manifolds, or are they Stock fit precision turbos? As I’d heard they were coming out with a set, ? And you’ve had zero issues with 500whp on a stock gen1 ? Or do you have a motor that’s built, I’m not going through the whole thread again, lol….
As I’m worried about going over 450whp on a stock gen1 motor, although it’s engine builders who keep saying 450whp=safe, 475=the danger zone, north of 500whp=a grenade with the pin pulled ..
although again, it’s the job of a engine builder to build engines,and the best way to stay in business is to convince customers they need a new engine , so lol…

I have my RMB built motor, 30k miles on it with zero motor related issues.

I have the 2019 Raptor turbos with the ported compressor housing. They are mated to Gen1 turbine housings, so they bolt to the Gen1 manifolds.

It’s just my personal opinion, but 450whp and 570ft lbs are a nice limit for a stock Gen1. It’s more about managing the low end torque than the HP.
