    500hp at 1550 is possible and 425hp and 1550 is a good setting according to Cummins. I have heard of M11's tuned and warmed to 550hp but they were not so reliable at that setting. 425 is were I would go to if it was economical and easy.

    410hp was a common uprate "back in the day". Buy an Atmospheric PSI sensor, screw it into bracket at front of ECM and plug it in since the harness already contained the plug. Problem we used to see is they would eat exhaust manifold bolts/gaskets above 370hp. Your mileage may vary.

    Yea they have them close to 400 from the factory. I remember walking in the shop where dad retired and seeing the front tore off a truck with M11’s. Pretty sure around 400 ponies is the max if you want reliability…..

    Rolled in to the house last night at 2030hrs. I got lucky and parked the truck in the only available spot at my local QT truck stop. Spent the day with my beautiful wife and our son and ate dinner at the in-laws. Gotta get a few hours of sleep and bounce out of Waxahachie at 0300 to deliver in Pocasset, OK in the morning. I'll be glad to get this huge crane track off of my trailer. Good night everyone and be safe on the road!

    Hey @singlescrewshaker , if I remember right, you have a pretty short neck on your trailer. Is it going to work OK with your new truck?

    It should still be good if it’s 11 feet. He’ll just need to leave his fifth wheel back.

    BTW @singlescrewshaker if you want your name changed, all you have to do is ask.
