    I'm looking at a truck to put a driver in with a C13 ACERT, 2007. It has an Ultrashift with 3:42 or 3:58 (not sure which) gears on 22.5 LPs. It's a mid roof Columbia and will pull a double drop/RGN trailer. I'd do a PDI tune, fuel temp wire and muffler like my C15. I'm interested in what kind of fuel mileage it might get with an average driver set at 64 -65 MPH top speed. I hope it gets a lot better than the C15, I'm HOPING for 7 plus?

    I have a c12 in my t600 it set at 430hp with a super 10 3:70 rears and 24.5 low pros and I unhooked the waste gate and it made a very small difference . In the next month or so im gonna do the 7"'dual exhaust and lol into injectors turbo and a tune. J would love to get it to push out 500hp. It's a great little engine.

    I just had mine rebuilt and added the a different turbo and the 505hp tune and all I can say is wow it just gets better and better by the load

    we went through elite in CO for the parts and tune........ also turned up fuel pressure

    First 900 miles were 5.44 mpg on new tight motor with way to much idling for the miles

    we used a garret turbo from elite and set fuel to about 120psi stock is around 80psi

    turbo has a 32lb wastegate

    egt is now cooler (cant get it up to 900)

    I'm really happy
