    Fabbing up a twin turbo system for my Dixie 50 hp diesel. After I get the two pipes to work I will turn up the 3 plunger fuel pump. SHOULD get about 68 horses out of it with the same EGT or better. Work for the Dodge. That thing (the pick up) dyno'ed 504 and over 1000 foot pounds of torque at Muncie last year, so we will see.

    Simple. If it's belt drive change the pulley's. If it's a hydro just increase the pump throw. Most WB hydro's don't run full pump throw because with pistol grips, the throw is too far most guy's to span with their hands.

    Just a thought. I tell my employees that speed is not realized by moving faster. Speed is realized by moving more efficiently
