    Have a 2006 460 e7 Etech low power stock injectors orders stage 1.5 injectors and have an s300 turbo, what’s s400 part number that’ll fit my semi. New bored injectors call for 15% increase in power.

    Go with the 171702 that the 60 series guys love. Except instead of the 1.32 housing go with a 1.15

    You can try the 1.32 that it comes with but if you find it too laggy go with the 1.15 it's only an extra ~250 ordering that. But an 06 will have the vgt turbo. Not sure how that would work. Unless you have an EGR delete.

    I probably would of got the Stg 2 or 2.5

    See if the blixxton box is still available that with the other mods will really wake it up. Get a pyro and boost gauge if it already doesn't and don't lug it below 1400 on a hard pull and it'll last a long time

    Ok, newbie here. I have a rd688s with a 400.... It was a plow truck in AZ ( really, it was!!!)... so its got a weird
    Air filter system that can suck warm air from the engine compartment.... to avoid sucking snow and clogging the filter. This mechanism takes up a lot of filter housing space and only has room for a shorter than normal air filter due to it. My truck runs hot and hardly hits 20psi boost. I'm thinking the smaller filter is making it hard to breath.... thus running hot ( and of course,not as much as I'd expect from a 400) any input from someone experienced (or not) with these filters would be appreciated! Also... thinking of putting on a 427 or 460 turbo in place?
