A Screaming Jimmy?
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.
Grab a handful of throttle on this beast and you know you have something to be reckoned with Not for the meek to say the least!
CricketsWhat setup had that kind of power on a stock 4-53T?
I seemed to recall them being around the same power #s as the early 6BT Cummins, so I looked it up just to check on my memory.
All I can find is 175hp, 420ft/lbs. Early 6BT being ~160/400.
That is the stuff dreams are made of. You will also need a Jake and an air starter...….Well jeez, I wasn't expecting such a reaction for the truck . Thanks guys! It's an 82 with a 91 front clip. I drove it to michigan from california last summer, only has 109kmi on it. It's currently a 454/4spd, but I'm building a detroit 4-53t/eaton rto610 for it. Going to build a hydraulic dump flat bed for it, multilink air suspension, and do a mild restoration/slight modernization hopefully this fall with a fresh coat of silver. Going to convert to power windows/locks, tilt column, delay wipers, etc.
Upside down 4-53
