Rocktoyo said:I've never tried propane on mine. #5 plate slid foward, modified hx35 (hate it) 3K governor springs, valve springs, 16 deg etc.... Runs way too hot and eats NV4500's. The harmonics on the transition from 15-20 psi to 32 psi are roung and honestly I think thats what kills my trannys. I'm pulling mine back down to the stock plate slid foward. I'll sure miss smoking the ricers tho'. If I ever get the cash for a 5600 I'll take it back up and see how it does, the gear splits on the 4500 aren't well matched for a bombed 12v and big weight.

You say modified HX35, which one did you get. what intake fan size and what exhaust housing. Waste gate or none?
the #5 plate slid forward is also a bitch, did you adjust the gov arm, if not odds are 9 times out of ten the gov is hanging up below the plate edge and then finally sucking itself up and onto the plate. Honestly i have had and tried all the plates, i still have a POS #5 laying around and IMPO the #10 is the best plate all around. I can build more power smoother with a #10 in a 175 or 180HP pump slid all the way forward and then back roughly 1/16" and the gov arm adjusted than you can with the #5 on a good day. the #5 has a steep ramp which causes the hard fuelling and rough transition you are describing also it overfuels at the wrong times and is hard to control so that leads to the heat also.
the exhaust housing you are using could be creating the lag if your fueling is not in sync.
Sounds interesting, got any more info on this setup? I'm currently running the stock turbo, and have put off buying a bigger one because I really can't handle the thing spooling any slower than it does.ddestruel said:Twins arent too bad. a void the kit build em yourself. flip the manifold use your HX35 and current exhaust housing order up a HT3B with 24cm exhaust housing $400-600 depending on what mods you have done to the turbo. Tubing is at $1000. Set the top turbo wastegate at 44-48psi. I helped spec out and layout a setup for a friend who hotshots, he has been running it since we put it in 140k miles and two years ago at 44 psi on a stock head gasket, no Orings no problems. other guys running hte same setup whio pushed thier timing past 16* and the boost past 50 psi all poped thier gaskets.
Just some tid bits.
