The quarter killed it!!!


My next projects will be removing the stock winch and installing a Warn M12000, trash the remains of the stock seats for some GM Trailblazer/Envoy seats, and install these transfer case shifters....http://www.northwestfab.com/Shifters.html

Haven't posted in a while. I've been driving the wheels off the ol' 715 for the past year and a half. Love the 4BT, but the NV4500 just doesn't have the proper gear spread for a low power diesel. So I am changing everything....picked up a 12 valve 5.9 Cummins and currently hunting for a Allison 1000 or 2000 trans.

I changed the wheels/tires last summer to 12.50R20's They fit much better.

That 4BT will easily Make 450hp . . . You really need more ? . . .

I'm all for you going to the 6BT 12er

The 12 valve will make 450 with little effort and still be efficient. The 4bt will be burning more fuel than I can supply to get those numbers.

It will be a fun project for sure!

It's been a while since I posted updates. The truck is rusting again. Paint is fading really bad. 4bt died last summer. Wrapping up the 12 valve swap. It runs like an animal. Should have done this swap the first time around.


I'll post up a video soon.

I think there are a handful of 4BT making that much power. And engine life at those power ranges is measured in hours, with absolutely no driveability.

Other than weight or size, it makes no sense doing that vs going with a 6BT, with can make that kind of power with relatively ease.

Neat!

So what did you end up doing with the 4bt? Would be interested if it's in rebuildable condition.

Thanks for the compliments. The 4BT is gone, I sold it to someone in Harrisburg area. It was a good little engine while it lasted, but the 12 valve runs it's tail off. No more planning ahead for little elevation changes, just put it in 5th gear and put the hammer down.
