RE: 255 30m 22.5 tires

Probably a 255/70R22.5 tire.

RE: Tuner like “5 Star Tune “

I saw a Charger that got a tuner on it (Diablosport Predator) before its first oil change. The car is still running, 15 years and almost 400,000 miles later. The engine and transmission are internally untouched. I recall it turned 200,000 miles at over 100MPH and 300,000 miles enroute to a HPDE. There was a guy years ago that did mobile tuning for the Dodge cars. He was leaving a wake of grenaded motors in his wake. As more and more people ended up with destroyed engines, people who dared issue negative comments were threatened with lawsuits, and IRC, there were a couple that got filed. His reputation eventually caught up with him and he went away. . As I said earlier, I won't use a tuner on a truck that is pulling a trailer. OEM's spend millions and millions making sure they calibrate for ALL atmospheric conditions. Tuners typically override built in safety margins. No, they don't. They just understand that people have different priorities. The biggest changes on the Charger were tuning for 89-octane fuel, making the cylinder-shutoff more aggressive, and tightening up the sloppy shifting. If anything, that will HELP the transmission.

RE: Mazama and Sumitomo tires

At Les Schwab looking at tires. Since they and Toyo have split ways, they now have a house brand called Mazama. The Open Road AT appears to be the Sumitomo AT Have any of you used these tires? or know someone that has? Good bd or indifferent.... LS still has a Back Country AT, which is a Cooper AT2. The Cooper AT3 is preferred choice, but Discount who is cheapest, does not do Front End llignments. LS does. As does Pep Boys that carries the AT3, but shop five blocks from work is not great to deal with. LS is three blocks. This one is a reasonable place to go. Other close by is firestone........ Plan is to drop truck off at 7 am, pickup at end of day around 5pm. With tires and FEA done. hence choices.... NO, I am NOT interested in Michiblow HT tires they claim are AT treads! Unless they make an XDE M+S in a 285-65-18! Or what ever the newest version is. i know they make an LR H in a 225-70-19.5! great tire! Thank you Marty https://www.treadwright.com/collections/filter/products/warden-285-65r18-10-ply-remold-usa

RE: Mazama and Sumitomo tires

Just the names Mazama and Sumitomo is enough poison to turn me away. YUP, wonder where they are made??? Most Sumitomos I have seen are from Japan. Never heard of Mazama-probably because Les Schwab is not in this area.

RE: Be Thankful Your Ford V10 Is The 2-Valve Version

First, I don't know if Ford ever made a 3V V10, but it never went into an exercise chassis. They did...it went into everything EXCEPT vans-the F-53 DID use it.

RE: Be Thankful Your Ford V10 Is The 2-Valve Version

Yes, in spite of the "knowledge" you glean from the internet, the engineers at Ford actually do an exhaustive amount of engine research. Even so, they still make mistakes, . . . . just like everyone else. (What a surprise!) When they tell you to change the oil at 5000 miles, they don't just pull that info from their hind quarters. IMO, THEY MEAN IT! My 1999 F53 V10 is a 2 valve SOHC 275 Hp engine. At a later date (I'm not sure the exact year, you can look it up) it was upped to the 3 valve (315 Hp) and later to the 365 Hp engine. IMO, a phenomenal achievement for a truck engine without changing the displacement. As someone who worked in a Ford parts department, I can tell you that if you go to the Ford factory parts website, you can look up the part number for the oil pump on the V10, 2 valve vs. the 3 valve. If it's the same, the pump is the same. If it's different, the pumps are different in some way. (maybe oil pressure, maybe flow, I don't know) You can look at the Ford Factory Service Manuals for that. They (Ford) may also use a different oil pressure relief valve, which you can also look up. Not that hard. Chum lee 310hp was the 2-valve. 362hp was the 3-valve.

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

Silver Sport Transmissions builds overdrive automatics for many vehicles, including Mopars...they have a bolt-in 4L65E conversion that will work behind a 440. https://shiftsst.com/blog/post/mopar-street-rod-and-truck.html

RE: Duramax Turbo

No, just seeing how bad the post-2007 diesels are. The right balance of counseling and pharma will smooth out some of those sharp edges. I accept your concession. Are you just trolling, or do you have a vested interest in people buying money-pit trucks? Do you own a diesel truck repair shop, perhaps? DO you sell some sort of snake-oil miracle product?

RE: Duramax Turbo

Jarlaxel- Not interested in a gasser to pull around 16,000lbs :) That's ok, it's his standard answer. Pretty sure either his wife or dog ran off with a guy who drives a diesel, based on some of his posts! LOL I was thinking the same thing. Maybe it's a childhood trauma. A stranger in a diesel approached him when he was young. I've never seen such a one-man crusade against the evils of an engine. Definitely PTSD. No, just seeing how bad the post-2007 diesels are.

Pretty sure we managed to top $60,000 in repairs (mostly emission problems) on the trucks at work in six months! Diesel has jumped the shark.

RE: Duramax Turbo

Replaced with new turbo in February, not a rebuilt Could still be a bad part.

RE: Duramax Turbo

Sounds to me like it might be a.problem with the ECM, another turbo after only 8000 miles is to me unlikely. Unless it was a bad rebuild...

RE: Duramax Turbo

OP here after a couple years on this thread. Short summary is that my Duramax started throwing P2599 codes about 125k mile (hence the thread). Since then I ended up replacing the turbo at 152k miles (last Feb). Now at 160k miles I’m back to the same problem. Pulling heavy this morning I went into limp mode twice in the Rockies. Both times I cleared the codes and kept going. Any ideas what service I should look at next? Used diesel truck prices are crazy...trade it in for something with gas power.

RE: Duramax Turbo

Vanished, I just bought a cheap code reader years ago. Not sure I’d recommend the one I have. If I didn’t have one I’d just searc on Amazon, or go into a local Autozone or some such. Thanks - I looked around and the selection was overwhelming. All i wanted to do was read & clear codes on our Duramax until I get the turbo rebuilt - but they sure seem to vary in price and features. Pretty sure you don't even need a reader-you can use a <$10 phone app and adapter cable to clear codes.
