Sweet rigs man!!!

Don't worry, the 4-53t won't be stock, but even stock they offered it up to 215hp/495lbft which is still more grunt than a 454. I'm doing a full electronic DDEC conversion with compound turbos and an external air bypass system. Should be about 500hp/1000-1200lbft.
That seems like a lot of power for a 4 cylinder that’s stock. That’s a lot more then a 6 cylinder Cummins 12 valve that’s almost twice the size. I’m guessing 4-53 is 4 53 cubic inch cylinders. Most be a fancy motor. I’d like a 4bt in a smaller truck. I’d put a 6 cylinder in that big truck like a Cummins

The last of the pump & lines Cummins were 230/5xx.

By "todays standards", the "B" in my dodge, (with Banks stage 3) is 224 hp and 643 on torque, doesn't sound so high powered.



AT least a guy I knew had the exact same truck and set up as mine, and that's what his did at the rear wheels. He also told me, they had trouble keeping the duals from slipping a bit on the dyno rollers, at full torque...

It does pull loads pretty good.

The 17 F250 I have will spin the single wheels with a 25’ dual tandem and 18 round bales. I’ve had several modded 5.9 Cummins at 450-600 HP and they are hard to tow with on wet roads.

@lefturnfreek . Our 08 blew that pipe also. At roughly 100000 miles. Same mods. Radiator went next. Actually very soon.
Ya once you pull the EGR coolers that pipe is unsupported and it vibrates and breaks usually. I knew about that and made a bracket for it and still broke it, the other side is split half way around and chock that up to me towing like a goon... I was around 45 psi of boost rolling up a hill loaded when it let go...

There’s a few other mods I left out, No Limit CAC pipe and elbow, Precision Industries 1600rpm converter, CCV rerouted into the exhaust and Spartan beta tuning. I did this stuff for engine life and better mileage which really made it a Power Stroke, on the other side, the only way you’ll keep up to me, is if you get on my trailer!!

Back to to woody stuff ... boiler is running at night as it’s still bit chilly and has been raining, on the plus side I have only seen 1 mosquito which got mashed !!

Keep on ... Runnin’ Loads!!

That's the beauty of a 2 stroke diesel! Only 212 cubic inches and made 495lbft back in the 1970s. Its not overly fancy, that's the beauty of them. They just flow a ton of air and fire twice as often, so they can be quite compact vs a comparable output 4 stroke. But they're not super small by today's standards, it's an 1100lb 4 cylinder that's 40" long :laugh:.

I still hear quite a few log skidders around here working with 2 strokes under the hood. Lots of Amish/Mennonite sawmills in the area still run them too.
