    I believe the issue is the CAC is dumping heat into to the radiator. When towing hard this addl heat it enough to over work the radiator. Net result coolant temps exceed factory limits. Truck ultimately defuels to preserve itself.

    Back to the topic of the thread. I for one am pretty excited to see this come to market.

    Any recommendation on how to install the turbo? Are you guys pulling the cab or sneaking from the side somehow? Also what all makes up the kit besides the turbo, switches and software update?

    With the factory cooling, do you think pulling equivalent load vs stock engine the resultant temps would be lower due to engine not having to work as hard? Not sure if that makes sense or not. Seems like if the stock motor was at the limit pulling X weight up X incline then the larger turbo motor with a lot more power wouldn't have to work as hard and may stay cooler?
