The problem is heat! How are you going to get rid of all the excess heat?

My advice: For towing a heavy trailer, stick to the larger diesel engines (400hp and 1050 ft lbs or more) and a side radiator or you will regret it.
I hear what you're saying...but not in my price range. These engines you speak of seem to be in the larger more expensive units. Not what we are looking for.

I am still looking.

I talked to a reputable diesel tuner about getting more power. He said we can do 15% more without any issues but suggested to install a pyrometer to watch exhaust temps. Said we can get way more power but doesn't recommend it for a moho.

This would take it from 325/750 to 375/950.

I have a tune in my 2006 chevy duramax and have ran tunes in all my Camaros...but new to tuning the cummins.

Any opinions?
