Default 3.0L turbo

about 3 years ago I turbo'd my Vulcan. I started with 4psi, and then 9psi, and now I am at 13psi on stock internals. hope this encourages others to build their trucks to. I know guys were telling me that "this build is not possible" but I still have a DD that is extremely fun to drive.

if I had to venture on how much power I am making.. on 9 psi I was @ 251 rwhp and 274rwtq. since then I have added P&P heads and P&P upper & lower intakes, and 13psi. I should be around the 310ish rwhp..

I don't think that a stock Vulcan can handle 13 psi. Maybe a healthy, beefed up one with a nice hard bottom end. But 13 PSI? Some EVO's don't even run that. If you have it at 13 psi, and you run it hard, I guarantee it won't last long.

I can't believe there is so many haters. you guys should be happy that there is guys like me out there pushing limits and boundaries.

I raced a new 2013 ram r/t and pulled on him when I was running 9psi. *not on video*
I raced another 2010 ram r/t with a CAI & exhaust and put lengths on him on my 13psi. *on video*
raced an ecoboost and slayed it to. *not on video*

haha I have my own stretch of private road. it is guys like you that fuel me to do what I do. things that "can not be done". I like to prove you guys wrong.

you don't need to believe me. it is possible to be another man made machine with another machine.

there is no way you are pushing 12PSI out of a 3.slow and it being reliable
