Thank you. Lots of work and research went in to both the Turbo Kit and the review. I’m glad you and others have enjoyed it!I feel like I need a cigarette now!
Best write up ever!!! So good and thorough in fact, I am having a hard time coming up with any questions.
Was the water running on to the floor for cooling the dyno?
That of course was done to try and avoid both regulatory intervention and insurance companies charging more for customers with 300+ hp vehicles. Today, the only advantages of claiming less power might be to try and escape additional emissions requirements from the EPA... but those guys test things and fine companies for cheating.... The reason I say this is I am old enough to have lived through the muscle car era when certain manufacturers and engines notoriously produced more HP and torque than the published specs!
Amen. I fully agree.I have really enjoyed your write-up on your turbo journey especially considering I also own a L2501 hst.
The dyno results are impressive! My only wish is that it would have been possible to have your tractor do a few dyno runs before you made the modifications. It would be interesting to me to know what numbers your tractor produced compared to Kubota's printed specifications. The reason I say this is I am old enough to have lived through the muscle car era when certain manufacturers and engines notoriously produced more HP and torque than the published specs!
Job well done and I hope you follow up with any other mods or issues that might pop up.
Thank you! Much appreciated.Wow, simply amazing! I read your updates this morning and did not have the time to respond. I am surprised you have not have a bunch of replies to your write-up and results since then.
As someone who is mediocre in doing most things, I am truly impressed with what you have achieved. My L2501 is a nice little tractor as/is, but I don't think I have heard anyone complain about too much power from the L2501, especially at the PTO. I have no doubt that if you fabricated kits for it, they would sell like crazy.
Thank you!That's pretty awesome. Will make people really think about a modded L2501 over a more factory hp tractor. And no DPF. Yay!!
