Dan, its a bone stock generator motor with a injection pump modified for use on the road which means a bigger governor spring, everything is yellow from CAT. I can hit 15# anytime and just short of 20# if I lay into it. The generator engine does not use a air/fuel control so I can call the shots with my foot, surprisingly little smoke

The new engine part is true on one hand but my lack of experience with this engine is making me a little paranoid, we need more miles together

Great Crit. I would also think high boost is not a problem. High cylinder and exhaust temperatures come from too much fuel for the amount of air available. High boost is just going to give you more air and without too much fuel should actually reduce engine temperatures. Enjoy!!

Jim, that is exactly what I am seeing on my gauges, the Pyro dips before it climbs
