Not sure on that, first time I saw the truck in person was back in 2006 or so in Houston and it had a Scheid motor than. Prior to that I am not sure, most race trucks gradually progress into form so I am sure it was "stock" at some point. The cummins bottom end is good to about 1000hp, assuming all the other parts hang.

Yes it has a four link system, drag racing a 4X4 is a pain in the ass. Last summer it ran a high 8 in the 1/4.

That was in one of the Dodge Forums ,I go sometimes for information, spinning the front wheels 3/4 of the way down is impressive.

Cummins forum? Is a wealth of misinformation. Spinning the front 3/4 down sucks....But yes impressive.

Diesel2fast4u - I was keeping quite to see where this went but since coolers are a topic now I have a suggestion. Your enemy is heat as you know when you design the cooler make sure there is plenty of fins like a AC condenser, do not use a big cross sectional area cooler compared to the thickness and use a multi pass cooler ie like two or three seperate cooler stacked each being fed by virgin cooling water. What you need is a big Delta T and regardless of how you design a one source of water in and out cooler you will only get so much heat transfer because the water temp will rise and start to be less effective regardless of direction of water flow you will run out of cool water quickly.

Think of a commerical air-handler in a large office building, common manifold of cold water feeding into various coils and then coming back together again. They work on a 15-25 Delta at most, you make yours like I said 2 or 3 independent cores thick and lower the temp vastly. Some people will argue that all that back pressure against so much coil will hurt flow - YES it will. BUT the cooler the air the more dense the less manifolf pressure you'll have and flow is inversely portional to pressure so the lower the pressure (temp) the flow will increase much more than linear.

If you'd like to discuss what you're doing I'd love to talk through things out here in the open if you wanted to, I think people love reading these things?

Joe, I have 4 coolers like this lying around, I thought mayby trying them like this :







Entering with fresh water in the middle and exiting on the sides
