i don't want to get into the middle of this, but common sense says
that snoman couldn't be completely correct about much of anything.
tom, just saying, i wouldn't want to be hitchin my wagon to snoman.
True. But back pressure is NOT what changes the timing of the release of
heat energy from the cylinder, as you claimed previously. That is cam timing
on the exhaust valve, and headers will NOT change that.
Secondly, its LONG been proven that the back pressure myth is... a MYTH.
True, less back pressure will scavenge the cylinder better, and may have an
effect on FI applicatins due to sensors, but the truck in question should
have no problem.
True... IF the O2 sensors are not properly reinstalled. If the O2 sensors
are put in the proper place on a set of headers purchased for the vehicle in
question, the loss of low end torque, if any, will be negligable. What will
kill low end power, more than anything on an FI 318, is too large a throttle
Sage advice for your own statements. Most of what I've seen you post is
absolute trash. Anyone who blindly believes that a gasoline engine is
superior to a diesel for moving loads has too much to learn about IC engines
to be lecturing anyone on this message board in regard to thermodynamics of
IC engines. Further, if you still belive the crap about back pressure, given
the advanced research and developement done on today's exhaust systems, you
are truly lacking in your own learning.
