Turbo 5.4L

I am installing a T63E on my F250 with a 5.4. I am using Ford 42# injectors, C&L 85mm mass air meter Holley billet fuel rails, Walbro 255lph pump, Areomotive regulator, Superduty intercooler, and was planning on about 8-9lbs of boost. My question is can I get away with 5 lbs. of boost and the stock computer with no chip by simply boosting fuel preasure to keep the air fuel ratio at a safe level until I can get a custom chip burned on a dyno. Also what spark plugs would be best used in this application.

Sounds like a fun truck, need a chip though, I wouldn't trust the MAF and FPR.....

I know I can't wait. I got this sick feeling to throw it into four-low and see what she'd do on dry pavement, now I can't wait to see what the added Hp. does to that, set you back in the seat feeling. I know of a few Slomaros and Top fuel Hondas that are going to be real sorry stop light to stop light that they messed with this 4 wheel drive. HeHeHE

I don't see why you couldn't... I ran 9psi with my stock computer just using a Kirban ADJ reg., and tuning by checking the plugs.

Thumbs up Here

Call Keith @ ProTurbo kits. http://www.proturbokits.com

They did a twin-turbo truck not too long ago and it's still sitting in the shop.

I don't believe you're going to be able to regulate the fuel pressure with the regulator you have. 1999+ vehicles are returnless fuel system vehicles. I'm not sure about trucks, but I'm fairly certain that they too are returnless.

This means that you're going to have to regulate fuel pressure with a chip. You may do better off with a Lightning fuel tank and pump assembly. This will give you all the fuel pressure and volume you need.

I'm not sure if that will fit in your application, however, the pump may fit in the tank.

Im going with Denso Iridium IT20's. I heard that they are the best so you may want to give them a try. Quite a few lightning guys are using them on there trucks so they should work nicely on yours.

What about using a lightning computer and MAF? we've all seen the kind of power and drivability they can have at increased boost levels, wonder how that would translate to the turbo truck.

I would think it'd be a good start at the minimum.

Thanks for the spark plug info and Superduty Trucks have a return line fuel system similar to the ones used on 5.0L Mustangs in the 90's. And a matter of fact I bought the AN adapters for fuel and return lines that fit 90's Mustangs so I could install my regulator and after market fuel rails.

Thumbs up Ahh

Gotcha. I think I read something about it a long ways back in a thread that got locked.. I spoke with Keith and I believe he mentioned that the individuals on The Corral badmouthing the PTK pieces had never even bought one. I saw the work first hand and it is top quality. He also beat the price of Total Performance's kit by a large margin, using all quality stainless hot parts as well and a 6" thick air-to-air intercooler as well.
