Default Diesel Truck Dyno

For the diesel guys that wanted to see the video of the 800HP dyno run...here it is. Fast forward through the first minute...we were trying to get an RPM reading...it didn't work, so I'm not sure how much torque it's putting out. Should be 15-1600 ish

A couple of weeks after this dyno test, when running at MIR, what I thought and hoped to only be a blown headgasket turned out to be a whole lot more.

Melted a few pistons and bent a few valves. 800HP on fuel takes its toll. LOL

Damn, post up some pics this should qualify for a Diesel TSP
What egt's were you up too? Pistons start to melt at 1500* (#6 on my old truck had a little damage to it) hold that for long enough and the injectors turn in to torches.

What shop in frederick are you having the work done? I know of Mid atlantic up in hagerstown.

It's at Mid-Atlantic...he's leasing a building in Frederick now.

I only had it up to 1600* a few times normally <1400* running it really hard and never very long, but I think the drive pressure coupled with the heat did it in.

Where is you egt probe i had mine toward the rear on the manafold there can be a 100* differance between the middle of the manafold and #6 where it gets the hottest. On my old truck i put a second one back there when one of the guys on DTR melted 3 of his starting from the back.

EGT probe is at the turbo flange. I'm was already looking at ways to get better coolant flow at the back of the head, now it's a bit more of a priority. LOL

Mid-Atlantic is my main sponsor, so labor rates don't get any cheaper. Looks like I'm going to get a rebuild form Mumau Diesel in PA (another small sponsor) for a heck of a deal.
