When power is supplied to the fuel solenoid, fuel flows to the injection pump and the engine is allowed to run. The variance also never gets worse and the gears last the life of the motor and beyond. The engine is often considered an attractive balance between performance and fuel economy, although it arguably became outdated in the wake of its direct injection competition. In the list of modifications that we can do to increase cooling is a high output water pump. Now there is a that still uses the oil pressure switch for the signal to a new heavy-duty relay with heavier gauge wires feeding the lift pump.
That being, if you added the right equipment, the 6. Many people will change to a dual thermostat crossover but I prefer to stay with the single. If not, well, keep reading! But, try to go fast or hook up a decent load and start some real towing and you likely will experience disappointing power and overheating. The concept for The Diesel Page 6. They are outdated and underpowered.
This level of power produces a trailering performance capable of pulling a 10,000 lb trailer up a 6% grade at the legal speed limit. Several companies manufacture an extension harness and heat-sink kits. Continuing with that, the 6. The problem with that is with such a small turbine wheel size, it was only efficient to about 14psi. People have tendency to run them for many more miles than they should me included.
I plan on doing some research on the internet, but you guys are experts on everything it seems, so I figure someone will have some great info. A freer flowing exhaust will do that for you. The L56 is emissions controlled with and. Not in stock form necessarily but with the ease of what amounts to bolt on mods. Overheating is also an issue with the 6. Gauges Gauges are the first thing that you should do before adding any power.
. It is frighteningly easy to put your engine in a position to be damaged without knowing things like exhaust temperature, turbo pressure and transmission temp along with the stock gauges of oil pressure and coolant temp. Where Do We Find It? In order to do that, we need to have a way for the amount of heat to be reported to us in the form of gauges. We will see what happens. Does anyone know if the 6. While a life of ease might not prove much, these miles were mostly driven with a trailer in tow.
Developed specifically for our 6. The General Motors light-truck 6. Air, fuel and with a tuning chaser are the building blocks of a fast truck and a heavy hauler that can actually pay for themselves over time. And I haven't seen the rig to judge. These carefully controlled performance comparisons prove the 6. The final ingredient in this power equation involved improving the engine's ability to reject heat.
Offered as high as 215 hp 3,200 rpm. The other is a 1998 exactly like the one you pictured. My cousin called me yesterday saying that he saw a truck for sale. Well there's a lot more where that came from, baby. Near the top of the compression stroke fuel is atomized at high pressure into a hemispherical Inconel prechamber in the cylinder heads using pintle and seat mechanical fuel injectors.
This and other performance tests have proven that the 6. This allows the lift pump to run at its full potential to begin with. We need to be able to feed the engine with more fuel if we expect it to give us more power. Before any mods, just cleaning the radiator will do wonders. Next in the trail to more power is partnered with the turbo. On the mechanically injected engine that we will be primarily dealing with, we need only get into the injection pump and turn up the fuel screw.
See how well it improves your cooling from the stock radiator with our comparison. The question we hoped to answer with this project back in 1997-99 was whether a properly equipped 6. He just kept telling me that it is way too nice of a truck to sell for much less than he is already putting it on sale for. In 1999, we compared a properly equipped 6. An intercooler was then installed to reduce the charge-air temperature generated from a sustained boost pressure of 15 psi.
