Re: Turbo 4.9L I-6
[FONT='Times New Roman','serif']Cool. The truck I drive right now is the second truck I have ever owned with the 4.9 in it. It's not much to talk about when it comes to how fast I can go or how good of acceleration it has. I do carry a little favoritism and respect for the 4.9, however because you can almost kick it's a** around the block and it just looks at you and asks "more please," it has a great amount of low-end torque for towing as far as a 6 cylinder goes, and it also runs forever. I figured that one day I would like to see what the potential for the 4.9 could be with some mods. I used to help my Dad out in his shop as a diesel mechanic and I have looked at a million dump trucks and road tractors come in all with huge I-6 engines with turbos on them cranking out monster torque for the work that they do. I can only imagine what a comparatively smaller engine like the 4.9 would produce for torque and HP with a similar set up. I will be certain to do my research and make sure the systems are all set up right with the computer, intercooler, and anything else that I may learn I may need along the way.[/FONT]
