Default Fuel Plates

i thought i read on here somewhere that someone had listed specific horsepower ratings with all these ground fuel plates...is there such a thing? ...if so great! ...could someone lead me to these...if not...can anyone tell me what they are or how i can expect my truck to run with each different plate? i currently have a Banks plate in it now ...moved it forward from the stock position but still doesnt feel as though i've got enough power there. The low end has increased quite a bit ...but the mid range is not as good as the stock position. Is there a plate i can trade it out with that will get me the most power that i'm gonna get from it by just changing the plates? what can i expect from bumping the timing up? i just changed the banks air filter out and replaced it with the BHAF and pre-filter. any help appreciated

Is your trans stock? A #100 or #0 will give you a lot of fuel but without trans mods your just asking for trouble. If i remember correctly you can’t grind a banks plate into #100 but you could grind it to a #0 and not put it at full forward. I have also heard some trucks seem to make a little more power with the plate just a little shy of Full Forward. You might try that as well.

Bumping timing will get you slightly better mileage, a little more top end and if I remember correctly it will lower egts slightly. It will also be a little louder and you might notice a slight loss of low end power.

TST Products originated the modified fuel pate - theres also more info here:

http://www.tstproducts.com/94-98dodg...withvideo.aspx

This is now considered to be just a guide. There lots of people grinding their own custom plates and getting them from other sources.


Bumping the timing will give you a very marginal bump in hp - but, more importantly it will make the truck run better. You should be somewhere between 15-17 degrees.

For some extra performance you should look into a 3k or 4k Governor Spring Kit.


Also, have a look at this:
