Here is a shot of the airboxes and dyno sheet for the 3208TA in my 33FC.
Max Torque was at 1809 rpm = 776 ft lbs
Max Horsepower was at 2535 rpm = 363 hp
I've also got a 3.73 rear axle so I figure it'll get down the road just fine once it's done.
I'll take some better shots once the doghouse is off and I polish up all that aluminum.

Brett,

Those are quite impressive numbers and a good looking CAT. What transmission are you running in the FC?

We will expect that polish job to be good enough so that we can see your reflection in it

Good looking piece. You are the man for Woodies ZF except for that pesky 3.73. I had a 3.73 once, then a 3.9, settled on a 4.11, perfect with the OD.
Not enough trans gears with the Allison for most applications. ****, I had 3.7 with a 10 speed, it was too tall. My guess is perfection for your FC would be 4.6 rear gear with the ZF. Them Z's are a nice piece. Other problem is cooling the rig. I had a rad made with the biggest core that would fit in the FC opening, still had to use the water spray a few times last summer, and my FC is best guess @ high 200s in the hp game. I'm going by what the pyro and boost gages say compared to the readings on the toter engine. Toter is a Ford louisville 30' over all length weighs in @ 24K. Both rigs have the the 9Y-1344 Cat turbo charger, presently made of unobtainium. The nozzles are 375 marine and the pump is 'was' turned up a bunch. Before the pump was turned down, I saw 18#s boost with the propane on, really set me back in the seat.
Pretty sure it would see triple digets, scared of driving over the crank, and tired of popping injection lines.
