Boost in mountains great

Engine brake double what it was

Mpg up 2/10 but I drove 8 mph faster and was fighting a 20 to 40 mph head wind

Quiet and smooth, power great

No leaks check every day

As all ways great service

We need to work on finding a better muffler. Found some flow charts on some different brand under cab mufflers. I think it would help some.

Ran a load of shelving 38,000 lbs from san Diego to just north of bakersfeild

Come over the pass 4200 ft, making 31/32 psi boost

Going off the grapevine 6% for 6 miles could run 2 gears higher and never touch the brake, making 15/17 psi boost

Never would make over 5psi before

I think that Vgt acuator has been a problem all along but no way to tell, who wants to throw 2 grand at a part you don't know if it's bad or not

Just cruzzin around out west wiping the smiles off large cars
