Next mod to fix EGT issues

I just ran my 01 in the 200ft mud drags and I lost to a 06 Dmax I ran a 5.7 to his 5.4 the problem is my truck is defueling so hard due to my egtís should I go with twins or nitrous? I donít like to loose and the egt issue is getting on my nerves.

Definitely get a bigger turbo in there, such as a s300(Super B). Also, I was having EGT issues alot so I added my stage 3 water methanol injection. It dropped my egts almost 300 degrees. I run on your garden variety washer fluid rated to -20 with methanol in it. You also get an added boost in power, might help you put that Dmax to shame.

First do a boost leak test and see if the intercooler is holding up. Then go buy an ATS manifold and port/polish, and match port it to your turbo. I was having some egt issues as well and this basically cured it. I could not believe it but do a search and you'll find a couple of posts. Or go to the Northwest Bombers Board and they will show you how to do it. Pretty cheap and easy and worth every penny. It's easy to get it in there but more valuable to take it out?! IMHO.

No offense, but I believe the previously mentioned post would be a waste of money (with his current mods) and if he's turning 40 #'s of boost, I'm guessin there's no boost leak.

By lookin at heykw's sig., he has lots of fuel and I assume a little HY turbo since it's an 01 auto. I believe a turbo would be in order. I think that would be a more wise investment than an ATS manifold to start out with.

Yes I do have a stock turbo. I have been looking at different twin turbo set up's what is the best and most affordable set up? I talked to and rode with a guy running water meth in his 01 Cummins and I was not all that impressed the truck was almost identical with the exception of his truck was a dually and he also had egt issues. What does a water meth kit const and does it really work? Is it better than twins, what about you guys running nitrous?

I have read that meth is prone to preignition on a diesel and could be more trouble than it is worth...

the pre ignition usually happens in the older 12v's because of their static timing, usually not an issue with the VP variable timing. As long as you set the methanol to inject at the right time, you will get a nice added power boost and a drop in EGT's with no problems.

$3442 for the full set up. Good price for a full set of twins.

You have got to be kidding me, i've been looking at turbo's for awhile now and was only gonna do a single but with the price of $2,434.50 I mise well step up to twins. Probably need a $1000 or more of stuff to add to that price to be complete, but if not I might take the jump.
