Did you start saving for a VP44 yet? Hopefully you didn't drive it much like that.

Thats my worry now is the VP44. Had it replaced under warranty years ago. Of course with this issue, i was driving like a grandma for at least 3-4 weeks hoping to not cause anymore problems. Right now it is running good. Gonna check codes every so often to keep an eye on it.

BLRMKR27, I notice you have the Power Elbow on your exhaust. Did you add all together or at seperate times? I am looking for feedback on the power elbow itself to see if I should spend the money. Of course they now have the Ram Air filter set up too. Running K&N now, but adding stuff to the truck is getting addicting.

The power elbow came with the exhaust system and included a 4 inch downpipe. I put a BHAF on mine. Read nothing but bad things about the K&N that was on my truck when I bought it. Clamped right to the intake hose. Found a template for a heat shield and made my own, although the shield could be better. How do you like all that Banks stuff you have? Aside from the cost, I mean?

I run BHAF on mine and a MAXTORQ power elbow. If you want to see the elbow go to his shops web page under projects Taylor Brian is mine. Love mine and works awesome.

I think they are talking about the exhaust elbow off the exhaust.

Yea the exhaust elbow out of the turbo. Dont know if it made a serious difference but it sure is wide open compared to the stock piece.

Banks stuff working great, didn't buy direct though, cost was ridiculous. I waited forever til i got a good deal on ebay for the programmer and gauges, got good deal on exhaust through amazon. spurged on the High-Ram intake though. Have never used anything else, so i don't have anything to compare to, but it will sit you back in the seat when you get on it.

Only complaint I have is between shift points. it takes a second or two to build up the boost again and feel the power again. Of course gears 3-5 are pretty fun!

Installed the exhaust first, noticed pretty big reduction in restriction right off the bat. Put the programmer and gauges in and after a day or so really felt the power. When I installed the wastegate jet kit, noticed another 2 lbs of boost and it seemed to spool faster.

Just installed the High-Ram and spool is a even faster, but main difference is noticable reduction in restriction. Not sure if I'm explaining it right, but truck doesn't slow down as much when letting off the gas. Also, have been eyeing the realtime mpg, think i'm getting better than before but will know for sure after a few tanks of fuel.

I was hoping to get some dynos in between each stage of install so i could see what benefits I was gaining. Of the 3 dynos i found locally, one was down waiting on parts, the other never answered their phone, the 3rd told me there was no way in hell he was gonna let me put a Cummins on it. LOL. I guess he made that mistake once already.

Overall, i really like it. As I said before, kind of addicting, now wondering what else I can add to the truck.

You could always go with a banks brake. It has basically the same exhust elbow in it. EXPENSIVE! It would be nice if somebody could dyno test each upgrade by itself for gains and have dyno results with different combos to see the real results compared to manufacturers claims. I think you would like the BHAF setup. Sounds much better.My stock airbox made an annoying deep rumble sound that I couldn't stand. With the BHAF and the silencer ring removed from my turbo you get to hear the turbo more. A lot better sounding to me. Ditch the K&N if you're smart.

Was researching BAHF's today. Looking through the forums, i found a list of part numbers. Trying to see which ones are good and which ones are just cheap. Any thoughts experience on one over the other? Also, did you install a heat shield on yours? worth it or not?

BHAF Part Numbers

Caterpillar 3I0005
Fleetguard AH19037
NAPA 2790
WIX 42790
Donaldson B105006
Baldwin PA2820
Hastings AF1012
AFE 20-40044
Carquest 87790
John Deere PMAH19037
Big A 93790
Fleetrite AHR819037
Luber-Finer LAF2531
Fram CA6818
UNI 908

I see the benefits of going with a dry filter, but prices range from $30-$350 for different setups, so just trying to make sense of it. or maybe i'm just over thinking it. any help appreciated or links to other threads i haven't found yet. thanks.
