It was great all around. I could run 75+ in 5th and maintain it up reasonably long grades in west Texas. On relatively flat ground I could hold speed in 6th. It would keep speed in 6th with some extra throttle, but the EGTs would get up around 1300 pretty quickly, so I usually downshifted to 5th for any grade.

What are the benefits of the "highflow" vanes" that are offered with this turbo?

About the only thing I know about turbos is they force air in the engine but I just spent like 30 mins on YouTube watching videos of this thing. Damn it sounds whicked!

Re-reading some old threads as I contemplate a twin setup again.... thought this was funny though. Little did I know about the absolutely brutal conditions in the SW, Arizona specially. 114* ambient temps and ridiculous grades. WOW. The towing I've down out that way changed my baselines for sure. I'm getting ready to load up in Texas next week and tow back to Vegas... thankfully the ambient temps wont be solar-flare level this time of year.

I10 is flat as can be lol. couple short grades in and out of blythe/quartzite, just rolling hills otherwise. now taking any road north out of phx besides the 93 to kingman and it gets interesting. worst is phx to heber. consistent grade climbing up with a few short down hills and long 6% grade up hills. i absolutely f**king hate that drive with anything more than 10k on the back durning the summer, winter its not bad. everything gets hot and there is basically no place driving that lets you cool everything back down unless you pull over and idle for a while. GM and Dodge have been using that section in the summer for testing on cars and trucks for quite a few years now.

Yeah I can contest to that. In the summer it can get upto 116-122 on the hotter days. The hottest ive seen is 130. At that point everything sucks. The lake gets up into the mid to high 90’s and feels like hot bath water and if wind hits your skin it feels like your burning or it’s melting off.... stock lly trans will hit 215-220 unloaded.
