    Looking to squeeze some more ponies out of my BJ 74. I have acouple of questions.

    1 How do you increase fuel pressure on the 13b t


    2 Can anyone recommend a turbo boost controller, want to up the
    boost pressure a couple PSI


    3 would adjusting injector pump timing increase power

    Ive already installed an external transmission cooler and oil cooler, I have a boost and exhaust guage ready for install.

    Thinking of propane injection

    I have a water to air intercooler from a Celica turbo, not sure if Im going to use it. An air to air intercooler works the best but with limited space I not too sure where Im going to install it.

    If any one has a tips or critisims please feel free to let me know.

    Thanks alot Travis

    drive a 3b for a while, then go back to the 13BT, the increase in power will be amazing :)
    I think propane is the way to go, talk to wayne...

    Many threads about this, try Grainger valve in the search and also PI for propane injection.Also talk to Crushers about this, he sells the units for your cruiser.

    You don't want to touch the injector pump timing . but you can increase the fuel. for the boost all you need is to interupt the line between the intake and wastegate, lessen the air the valve stays closed longer. any valve will do this.

    some guys block off the line completely, although I am not that brave....

    good luck and good searching, welcome to the board.....

    Where do you store your propane tank for the injection?

    I really am not sure what I doing with that kit yet...so will hang onto it for a while...thanks!

    Before going propane, etc, I would do a few things if you have not already.

    1) Injectors looked at and rebuilt if required.
    2) Time the injection pump
    3) Get fresh air to the engine...snorkle
    4) Allow that air to escape (2.5" exhaust-with free flow muffler...if any).
    5) Bump the boost, and adjust fuel, using the pyro and a really steep hill to adjust.

    Got to run...more later.

    LOL, I agree you want more power, buy a new motor, or a new truck.

    I like my 3B power she's an old girl, but shes got alot more love to give.
