Increased voltage = less amp draw on the batteries. And I agree keep it simple unless you need the extra torque from going 24v.

Yeah. Definitely. Dual voltage would be a wiring headache.

Only real benefit is you can use smaller gauge wire for the 24v setup

And, on the 24v setup, if one battery takes a s#it it wont bring down the other battery but it will prevent the whole system from working at full potential. On the 12v setup, one dead battery will likely kill the second

I took an in-house loan out to get me the home stretch and up and running.. last payment was this check I received Friday..

So I really haven't had any extra money to re-adjust my blind shot in the dark and fire again..
The bigger turbo I put on is too small,
Plan is
Swapped from a 362/68 to a 363/74
I have talked to Joe @hsp about doing a 464/82 with an external gate, the concern I have right now is I don't have the fuel to spin a s400 charger..

The p-pumped is getting replaced with a 12m with common style DV 181/191 vs mine has constant pressure.. should be able to flow substantually more and better tunability along with 4k GSK set for full fuel to 2600rpm currently starts pulling fuel about 1800
New core is $1300.

Then install the 5*.014 injector I have.

Alternator/starter/batteries have all died and been replaced since I got it up and running.
It's solidly in the mid 8s for mpg have seen 9.5-10.5 couple times..
Diesel is pushing 3.50 or better here in the in the Midwest...
On a 2500 mile week avg
8mpg is ~300 gallons
10mpg is 250g
12mpg is ~200g
Multiple by say 50 weeks that's alot of money I'm leaving on the table...
Pretty sure once I get the engine timing good pump, right turbo, MPG will come up..
EGTs get warm quick @50į.... been grade speed limited by egts.... Probably be nuts come humid 90s in the summer..
Plan new CAC/radiator this spring along with AC condenser/pump/receiver/lines etc
Insulation/sound deadening/weather stripping needs done but I don't have a heated shop...


Edit
Found the OEM turning spec for a 430 hp 8.3 I pulled a H1C off

3802886 cummins #
H2d holset
Turbine Ind. 86. mm, Exd. 77. mm, 11 Blades
Compressor Ind. 64. mm, Exd. 94. mm, 7+7 Blades
Compared to s362/68
62/84
76/68

The money you are/have spent in mods can buy a lot of diesel. I understand you may put enough miles on to justify it but most people when rationalizing their mods for mpg will never come out ahead...

geneally speaking i agree.

really depends on how many miles and how long you plan on keeping said vehicle, obviously, putting 100-120K miles down a year. my ROI will come much sooner, the higher diesel goes the faster my ROI happens. i plan on keeping this for at least 5 years

person that puts 20-30k on it over time he owns it say few years, naturally wont come out ahead.

for me saving ~100 gallons of diesel a week for 50 weeks at 3.50 a gallon is ~$17,500 dollars still in my pocket, that's pretty decent chunk of change especially for a business the does 150-200k year before expenses

the parts im using are while arent "cheap" they are substantually cheaper than most stuff on newer engines.

then theres the good stewart philasophy

Wore the rear pads off and caught a rotor
Both wore evenly

As with the theme of the truck.. mis-matched rear calipers in piston size....
Since rotors are inboard..... I put some cheap pads on,
got new rotors calipers pads, wheel seals coming.. swap everything when I get back from KS..
Front pads are 80% of new,
pads/rotors are same F/R

There's two caliper size (F) 2.6" and rear are either 2.6" or 2.8" if I can I'll put 2.8 all around..

Adam have you considered an AFC Live setup for the truck? will allow you to dial fueling on the go
