    Man only 214hp from a 6.5L…nice though.

    only 214hp!! Bummer! You make more out of totally stock diesels these days.

    My newest run was 228rwhp, which I dont’ think is bad since my truck is rated 180hp at the crank. If you knew about the 6.5L you’d know about some of its limitations and what it was actually designed for ;).

    Yeah, not too bad for a 6.5 motor.
    Been down that road with many “hot rodded” 6.5’s and Peninsular 6.2 and will never mess with another one again!!
    It’s simply too much aggrivation and an unreliable platform!!

    Beautiful truck! I’d rock that any day! No matter what horsepower it makes..

    To those of you that keep mentioning the HP of this engine-

    214 HP Yes. But thats 214 RHP, or rearwheel horsepower. Part of engine’s HP at the flywheel is getting absorbed into the transmission and driveline (friction). Manufacturers only measure HP at the flywheel.

    You would have to uninstall the engine and use a different dynometer device to test HP at the flywheel.

    Assuming that 70% of the engines power made it to the rear wheels, puts this baby around 305 HP at the flywheel.

    I think everyone understands the difference between RWHP and Flywheel HP…… Yes?

  11. mahatma171 January 12, 2010 at 12:32 am #

    Everyone? Doubt it.

    Try some water injection on it !

  15. Camscape January 12, 2010 at 12:47 am #

    Water injection won’t do anything. Water/meth injection will do something but not much. These are my old numbers, the newer numbers are close to 230rwhp. I’m not a fan of water/meth at all. My intercooler cools the intake charge good enough and I don’t have the cash to keep filling the water/meth tanks on a system like snows or others. So no.

  16. KB3MMX January 12, 2010 at 1:18 am #

    Cam, with water/meth, you will gain at least a very conservative 30 RWHP.
    If’ you’re using lower concentration of Methanol, the cheap blue washer fluid
    (90 cents a gallon) at Wal-Mart is a inexpensive way to go.
    Water injection does great things for diesels !
    The Snow Performance system is overpriced….

  17. DRNEGOLICIS January 12, 2010 at 7:29 am #

    cheap and reliable and long lasting

  18. KB3MMX January 12, 2010 at 11:45 pm #

    I’ll agree with the first part.

    Some of the 95 trucks came equipped with a OBDII connector with a OBD1 Computer so make sure you know what you’re looking at when you buy a 95 Chevy Truck.

  23. Camscape April 5, 2010 at 1:59 am #

    @JetForceF22 All 95 chevy silverado’s I’ve seen have all OBDI components. They didn’t put OBDII in until 96 (which would be late 95 manufacturing date).

  24. JetForceF22 April 5, 2010 at 2:12 am #

    Yes I know, but since 1995 was the transition year, (old body style, new interior, last year of the TBI) I’ve heard some stories of the 95′ Silverados that has a OBDII connector, with the OBDI computer. I have a 95 Silverado, when I read that I ran outside to my truck to make sure I didn’t have that, and to my relief I had the OBDI 🙂 Only prob with OBDI is you can’t flash tune it from the port like you can the OBDII
