Triples & Header Build on Big Angry

Thought I'd share since this would be just about my dream street / strip truck. Rich from Dog House Diesel has had this truck as a work in progress for many years now, but he's recently decide to take a serious leap in progress. Building a set of triples and a customer header to replace his old LARGE single and nitrous set up.


I'll be posting from his thread " The Build Up" on another forum. I ask his permission to share bits and pieces of his build. The whole thread is amazing, but I'll just post most of the newest progress.


His old build netted around 1500 whp and has run a 6.38 in the 1/8 to this point. I'll hit on just a bit of his old setup.


Here is a vid of him taking the track manager for a ride. Street tires so he figured he'd just have a little fun with the guy.

Don't forget, I also use an electric water pump so my routing may be different than what you need.

But, it's starting to take shape. I'm back in school so I won't be able to go buttholes and elbows on it, but I am giving myself Thursday afternoon / evening and some of Friday to work on this thing, so that's when I'll probably update stuff.

And here they are being held "sort of" in place. Tom was holding them up for me and with the two of them together it's a bit awkward. They'll actually be slightly farther back and rotated clockwise (as you're looking at them).....

The ones I'm running now are Exergy 250% over with 2 Floor-It mod'd pumps. Even running the big single (Garrett 4718 - 88mm) I could drive it without blacking out the planet if I didn't want to. The main problem was the single was so big that it made no boost below 2000 RPM's. I just pretended that part of the RPM range didn't even exist. It woke up around 2300-2400 and wasn't REALLY lit until 3000 RPM's. Trying to get the truck moving without having to go heavy on the fuel with no boost took a little finesse.

Now, if I just let it eat, there wouldn't be a mosquito problem in North America for a decade.

With the fuel I have now, the truck wont make much more power than what it has. I'm just out of pump. It sits right at 1551 hp now, but that's about all it's got. It'll have enough air 1600-1800 hp and it has enough injector for that, but the pumps are pretty maxed out. If I bring the duration any higher than what I run it at the track the pumps start dropping pressure. Oh well, just need to add another pump. lol

As for compounds or triples.......how much power do you want? Once you start getting really big with the primary is where you want to look at the triples. Two smaller ones are usually cheaper than one big mofo.




Quote:

I have no "immediate" plans to rig up a 3rd CP3, but it'll happen....probably a project for next winter. No need for another ECM to control 3 CP3's, it's just further splitting the signal from the ECM 3 ways versus 2 right now.....just a little playing with the Fluke to get that sorted out.

The guys you see running standalone ECM's or piggybacking ECM's are in the older 03-05 trucks. One controls the egine and the other controls all the dash functions.

450 * 3.2 = 1440 hp
450 * 3.4 = 1530 hp

Like I said, they're maxed out.

That picture to the right in my signature is what happens if I forget to turn the timer on for the second stage and it all just hits at once.......tires don't stand a chance. Even delaying the big hit out to around 2.0 - 2.2 seconds it still blows the tires off half the time.

Between my two 67.7's......I have about 84-85 lbs each before I really start pushing the map. 170 X 9 is about 1530 hp....that's keeping the compressors in the 70% efficiency island. Plus......I still have 2 bottles in the back. ;-)

I'm used to cranking up the big lathes and pulling .250" off at a whack. Anything less than .030" and it's not even worth setting up the big lathe.

Let's see how bad I can jack up the welds on the aluminum. Aluminum always kicks my butt and I haven't welded it in about 6 months or so.....

Not TOO bad. I did have one little bit of burn back I had to touch up, but it's certainly not my worst welds. It'll do for a bit of redneckery....

Click the image to open in full size.

All welded back up and now it has plenty of clearance for the charge piping. There is just about 5.5" between the front of the flange and the oil filter and the radius on the elbow is 4.125"...

Each of the collectors will have v-band on it. That way I can remove either header separately or the section going into the turbine. It'll be a 3-piece setup, that way if I need to work on or get to stuff I don't have to remove EVERYTHING.

Here's the tricky part.....sectioning the two pipes so that the two 2.75" pipes merge into one 4" pipe.....

The pipes get offset 45*'s to form the 90, then each pipe gets 98*'s worth of the circumference taken out of it and tapered back so each pipe splits evenly and divides the exhaust flow without some big bulky divider. Right from straight pipe and into the turbines without a huge disturbance in flow.

Here's how you set it up.....

I use these for compressor discharges, intercooler inlets/outlets, elbows into the intake plenum, etc.

These cast ones weld pretty well, you just want to pre-heat them a bit when you're welding them to thinner stuff like flanges.

The lips on them are bigger than the specified OD, so they hold boots and clamps well too. I have to grind down the lips to use them with flanges and piping.














Yes Jeff! Please call me when this happens!!!!

This will be the 3" OD aluminum charge piping and the small stuff is 2" OD 11 gauge 304 SS for the wastegate piping.

This is everything to finish the header. Once the header is welded up it and the secondary can go on the truck and I can start making the brackets to locate the primaries and get them where I want.

I think this is where I left off last....doing the elbows and flanges for the discharges on the turbos....

Here's what I had going on this afternoon. Started working on the piping off the headers and into the secondary turbine. I had to work on this because the box of bends that showed up didn't have the tight radius bends that I ordered....they sent the larger radius ones that I already have plenty of....so I couldn't finish that one little section on the front header.

First, finished up the flanges on the collectors....

Then started working on the piping to the turbine....

Stainless like to draw up pretty good when you weld it, so the flanges need to be bolted down to prevent warping and the piping needs to time to cool between welding sections.

If you don't purge it you actually get a pretty significantly reduced diameter where the slag forms on the inside of the weld. On big stuff (exhaust pipe, etc) it's not that big of a deal. But, when you get .100" (x4) build up of slag inside a 1.55" ID pipe, you cause a significant restriction. You end up with a pipe that flows like a 1.15" ID instead of 1.55" ID.

Closing in....

I decided to gate the pipes directly instead of using the plate. I have plenty of good spots that will flow to the gates better than having to go 90* from the exhaust flow. I'll be able to put each gate right at a bend so it flow straight to the gate, which is how you ideally want it.

I'm seriously thinking about taking the truck for a ride once the headers are done and it's on the truck. Just want to see how well it responds to this setup. I know I have a down pipe that'll fit, just need to whip up a temporary charge pipe.

The outside might look awesome, but inside looks like crap.

You just run a piece of hose off the regulator, put it INSIDE the rag at the opposite end and start going. Do one weld on one pipe, then move to another pipe and let that one cool....repeat.

First, welded the inner portion of the tube together and sanded them flush....

Then bolted the flange to the wastegate plate to keep it from warping. Just waiting on it to cool and I'll weld the inside too. I really should have put the flange on the hot plate for a few minutes. It ain't pretty, but it'll git 'r did.

The bar stock on top of the pipe is just tacked to keep it from warping.
