Just got back from Redline. Whoo boy was that a fun time. There were TONS of trucks that showed up. Jim Fullmer did a 844 & 850 HP run on his 2nd Gen Dodge. I don't want to steal his thunder, so I'll let him give all the details. It sure was a fun night.

That was before he changed the delivery valves. He put bigger ones in and did 873 from what I'm told. All I know is I wenty from 260 with an EZ/275 to 371 with a comp/275/KSB-1. This weekend was a blast yall. Next month there's a rally down in Baytown and I'm thinking about hosting it at my land in Rosenberg. It's only about a 1.5 hours from Baytown. All I know is I had a blast this weekend. Big thanks go out to Rowland and Dan for the turbo help. That KSB-1 is a complete animal compared to my HY. Thanks for the help yall. I really appreciate it.

873.....Wow!! When we left, I saw him working on his truck. He was messing with a torque wrench. Dang. Well, at least I got video of his first run of the 850HP runs.

Congrats on your truck. I know in July that you were a little dissappointed with results. You were busy in the last 3 months Now lets start seeing that Kills list in your signature start increasing.

I don't know if you follow the Ford forums, but the event in Houston in November is looking to be a good one. David Lott and Brian Bunting have been exchanging smack talk on the Ford forums. Brian Bunting has a strong running 7.3L that placed 10th at Scheids in the pulling. He is coming to Houston in November. I hope that Hoss and the Red Rocket (from NWBombers) make another trip down. Those three trucks should provide PLENTY of entertainment.

The numbers were 816#2 and 844 with water using 181 DV's

848#2 and 873 with water using .022 DV's

Max power was at 3400 and max T/Q was at 3100.....best T/Q number was 1423.

All runs were right at 80 psi and the lowest airtemps at the hat I've ever had, if anyone has an E-mailable version of the vids I'd sure like to have it, or heck just post it somewere.

Jim, I got video of your first runs. I left as you were working on your truck and didn't get vid's of your later runs. I'm really kicking myself in the **** for doing that, but when you got a grumpy father in law ready to go, what are you going to to ?

Congrats on your numbers. Its freaking amazing what your truck can do. Once I found out you were coming I made it a point to bring my brother in law, and father in law (both Ford diesel guys) to personally see your truck (and David Lott's as well). All they could do while watching you was just shake their head and say "Wow".

I believe that you got every bit of that 80 psi ! You could just see the exhaust seeping out of you piping,etc, during your run. Do you race your truck? I saw you and David Lott talking and I could just see that he was chomping at the bit to get you on the track. Come down the the DHRA even in Houston in November, and lets see that happen !!!

Thanks again, seeing your truck made the drive worth it.

Is there anyway to save that video to a hard drive? I'd like to put it on my USB stick and take it with me out of town next week.
