    Theory of compound turbos

    I also agree with Ron. The HE351VT is pretty close to an HX40 also, but with the variable geometry. It would work well with the K31 or a smaller S400. It would also work well with a larger sized S300 (66/74/18). However, with the variable geometry it is going to be a tight fit in a compound configuration. Also you will find that for drivability you really variable geometry for spooling with a small twin setup. You will be amazed how fast the power will come on with a small compound setup. It really make for a fun street truck. The added complication of variable geometry for the sake of an exhaust brake doesn’t really seem worth it. It is easy enough to install a butterfly in the exhaust later. It it always seems like a good idea to have things integrated (turbo/exhaust brake) until something goes wrong. Changing the turbo later, almost certainly means starting over. Ask me how I know.

    Maybe an S300/K31...

    I believe the numbers do fit his agenda.....

    "We have learned so much" (that we are not going to share). I applaud his idea and innovation but his information is so self serving and contradictory that it makes me not care. How do you insist that it has to be at 4 quarts then say you are going to test other levels to see? Also if AAM knows what they are doing, why is he doing any of this?
  8. Yes! I will make my schedule fit.

    I know a guy that has a TDI you could drop in that thing... It's crated and ready to drive up to your place. 😁 Just sayin...

    Sounds like a good time. Does it seem pretty straight forward and easy? Pictures?
  11. I’m down. I just drove by there a couple hours ago.

    NHRDA News

    The NHRDA semi is Robert’s old truck. I got to help put the NHRDA on it when Mike did it shortly after Randy first bought it. I miss those days.

    Odd wiper issue...

    Yes, I should clarify that the issue I was describing is only with trucks from 03 to 05 (diesels).

    Odd wiper issue...

    I had a similar issue happen with my truck but it was the headlights that would come on. It could have been the windshield wipers also but it was the headlights that we noticed. I had to replace the forward control module that is fixed to the side of the Power Distribution Module. https://www.ebay.com/itm/02-05-DODGE-RAM-1500-FCM-BCM-FRONT-BODY-CONTROL-MULTIFUNCTION-MODULE-P56045434AF/223221635568?fits=Year%3A2004|Make%3ADodge&epid=810624148&hash=item33f90bd9f0:g:qeIAAOSwQf9beJLy:sc:USPSPriority!98632!US!-1:rk:2:pf:0 Just have to be sure the numbers match up as there are different part numbers for different options I believe. Haven't had an issue since. This was probably 5 years ago that i changed it.

    Well, actually i was thinking of checking the F150. If I checked average speed for my Dodge, over the last year, it might be a negative number. LOL! At least it will be driven this weekend. The camper is sitting on it now.

    NHRDA News

    I was reading up on it yesterday and saw Randy had posted some stuff on Bookface. I guess a Guy that was helping him with the NHRDA is leaving (suddenly) and I guess someone that was working at the shop and running business there, had left. I don't know if it was Mark that left. It would really surprise me if that were the case. Mark had been Randy's right hand for years... and a very good guy. Randy is going to go back his core business.

    i don't think it does.... I will look at the Ford. I would like to think it is higher than 33 MPH considering all of my driving is highway. But maybe not.

    Average 33 MPH.... ouch.
  21. Truth be told, I did have a plan "B". I just wanted to see Carl.😁
  22. I don’t feel sorry for you... all you need to do is quit blowing the engine up. Easy.🤣 Carl stopped by and helped me set the crank in the block. Thanks Carl! I couldn’t have done it without you. Believe that!
  23. I'm not really sure i am qualified to supervise anyone waxing. LOL! I also found out i will be making a trip to the Arctic Circle the first part of December. We will see how far we get. Lot of things going on in the next 3 months. Going to Mexico in January....
