  • These engines are indirect injection with an alloy head and are known to crack heads, so you'll need to be very conservative with EGTs. An intercooler and straight through exhaust will help this significantly. Have the injectors been replaced recent…
  • https://ozvolvo.org/discussion/comment/164249#Comment_164249 Been watching too much Cleetus McFarland? https://ozvolvo.org/discussion/comment/164258#Comment_164258 Thanks. Unlikely, however I'd like to see 150rwkw after a tune.
