Welp. the Boss just bought a new truck for work to replace the 87 dodge pickup. Wicked youd be pleased to hear that we now have a 07 CTD quad cab dully with a six speed. Already tuned and smokes like crazy. Least it will smoke while working and doing its job. These things are crazy fast for their size. Now were gonna be fighting who gets to drive the dodge lol.
What was the 87 Dodge like? D150? W250? V6, V8, I6?
I'm not going to lie I want a 1st gen diesel similar to the first one built. I was going to build one for my old man, but he's gone soft, prefers his 2015 with XM, heated/cooled seats, automatic, crewcab, quiet...doesn't want a smokey, smelly, rattletrap.
This thing will be towing dumpsters 24/7, so atest it serves it's purpose.
How does it do towing dumpsterfires?
I'm guessing if it's already tuned it's probably deleted, so that thing will probably live forever. That's about the only issues you see with the 07-12s (if you don't hammer on it stone cold, but that goes for any engine.)
That also means that it's probably making more power than your average Freightline M2-106. Most of them are 260-325hp, and it's nothing to turn up an ISB to 400hp with just a tune.
haha you can almost feel the love between colleen and arummel 2.0!
