[SPAM][SP] [SPAM][SP] LCOOL "1HD-FT Performance Adjustments"



I haven't done any mods to the engine yet, so my contribution may be of
little use to you as you clearly seek a positive proof. Probably, the best
proof would be to take the engine apart, examine the condition of each vital
component, then do the same again after running a modified engine for say 25
thousand miles.
I entirely agree that the engine is a system and changing one setting will
affect another. But if your concern is how it performs on long trips with
heavy loads, you should include in the equation also other drivetrain
components: cluch, CV joints, gearbox, etc., always rememering that making
one link stronger doesn't make the weakest link any better.

I did this adjustment to mine and did not notice much difference. I now have
it running as standard. I am not too concerned about extra acceleration.
