Helps to have a friend that's a welder/fabricator. Cut the end off, then bent some heavy sheet over the top of it to match, was just large enough to get the Hewitt Industries gages in. Had to angle upwards a fair amount so they could be seen.Did you make or extent that box to fit those 2 gauges?
I swapped a small hx50 onto my truck and it was too big. The power band on these trucks is small to begin with. Adding a larger turbo alone, will only hurt you. There needs to be additional modifications done to support more air and fuel.Is there a larger turbo that can be swaped out for better HP?
What kind of boost are you pushing. Did some pump mods and I can get 39psi from just that and a air filter modI have a Bosch P-7100 “P” pump, gear, supports, intake cover, and injector lines, as removed from a 300hp 8.3L Freightliner FL70 if somebody has to have it. Won’t let it go for cheap though. The pump alone gets up to $900 used on eBay.
Hi Will !!! Awesome to hear from you. Hope retirement has been kind to you.
If you have the part numbers off the marine injectors, a shop should be able to look up the specs.Found 450HP marine Injectors for the 6cta, but don't know the spray patern? The 12 Valve is 145* while the 370HP marine injectors for the 12 Valve are a 155*. Worst Case I guess would to be install the marine pistons in the 8.3.
Considering it's a medium duty motor with a radiator that is only so big it'll be burnt to a crisp in no time.If you have the part numbers off the marine injectors, a shop should be able to look up the specs.
I personally feel 450hp will be way to much for an over the road motor in a 5 ton. It’s like adding a 100% over at injector to a stock truck. It’s going to be really hot.
It will definitely be way too hot. Just look at the 370 marines in a 12 valve. Truck would be hot all the time.Considering it's a medium duty motor with a radiator that is only so big it'll be burnt to a crisp in no time.
Best bet is to take the stock injectors out and have them opened up to your specs. Most injector shops can hone the nozzle and increase flow.Point taken.
