Seat belt is flapping around making a bunch of noise. 4th gear 2500 2600 rpm. Boost at 1:1 up to 25 lbs. Backed off to make the corner at the top of the hill then downhill into town. Gearhead light tow economy tune.

Couple screenshots from video. EBP hit 25.1 and boost made it to about 24 or 25. Pretty close to 1:1 sometimes better than 1:1 as the EBP was fluctuating a bit

ICP 2862
IPR 38.7
FIPW 3.2
Go Pedal 72%

Brandon, I am pleased every time I see you post something about the SXE. Although, it only makes me want to order the T4 and SXE sooner than I really need to. I hate having too many unfinished projects, and the camper is still on the top of our list right now. Also, it is too hot in the garage to spend a lot of time in there working on the T4/SXE, so it will have to wait until the fall. That way I can get other projects done and then be 100% focused on the truck.

Looking good though, your numbers are great and not far from what Akcooper9 sees and what I should see based on the injectors. The other fellas running the SXE's have various injector setups, so their results will be different then ours (the three of us) that are running stock or close to stock injectors.

Keep the pictures coming, as much as it hurts to see them.

Did some hunting online for ways to find the grade of a road and it seems to be between 5% and 6.5% for that hill in the video bringing the excursion home.

Looked up the gravel road by where we rent storage for some tractors and that is 9% on 1 side and 10% on the other. When I pull on to the road headed home you are already heading uphill. Heading home trailer loaded I leave it in low but if empty I shift into first. 1 lane washboard road and blind hills. Headed there I almost stop at the top of the hill and shift into first since you are still descending when you pull into the driveway.

I just go back from a 2100 mile trip to Durango Colorado and back to North Texas towing the 5er. The SXE was awesome. I pulled all but 3 hills in 3rd gear with EGTs at 1100 degrees or less with boots between 15 and 20 PSI max.

The 3 times I had to drop to second was due to switch back turns that required speeds below 45 MPHs. Some as low as 20 MPH. Steepest hill was at 10K foot of elevation and just keep climbing. Trucks settled in at 45MPH and just did awesome!

This was all with Dusty @ 1023 medium tow tune. His tune is 100 degree's cooler then PHP's server tunes.

It was very nice to be able to set the cruise and enjoy the drive with not worrying about EGTs

Do any of you guys know the torque specs for the turbine and compressor housing bolts for the 300 series. The bolts were barely more than finger tight on the 366 that I received. I could be wrong but that just doesn't seem to be tight enough for something that has parts that rotate at 100k+ rpm's. I have searched online and cannot find them on BW's site.

However tight I could get them with a wrench when it was already installed.

Thank you, Brandon. It makes me feel better to know that someone else has had success with this approach. Even though it does not inspire confidence for me, Gudentite is what I went with since the BW instructions allude to torque specs but don't elaborate. I hope to have some hot exhaust gas flowing through this thing sometime tomorrow since I am two days behind schedule already.

I live about 15 miles from the factory that built the 366: I may give them a visit to see if I can get some clarifying info for everyone.

Agree, even if you find a torque spec you will never get a torque wrench in there.

Thank you for the additional clarification. I have access to a open-end interchangeable-head torque wrench, I guess that is what it is called, that would do it; however, using it would require installing and then clocking the turbo, placing index marks on the housings and center, then removing the turbo, torquing the bolts and then re-installing the turbo....maybe twice, which is a royal PITA and not something that I want to do since I have limited use of my left hand.

I now feel even better about "gudentite"! Thank you all, again.

Did you have enough power to make that climb at 70 mph in overdrive if you wanted to? Thats how I like to tow on the highway, I only downshift when egts get to high.

I think so if it did not have the curve at the bottom and was not a 55 speed limit. I don't think I could have accelerated from 50 to 70 but I think I could have maintained 70. You have to slow a little for the curve at the top. I usually go around the curve at the top between 45 and 50 with a trailer even empty, the sign says 45 . Then it is downhill to a speed trap entering town.
