Default Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Diesel-Altitude(sic)


Hi all,
I have a question. How high up a mountain should I be concern
with the trucks diesel engine (5.9L turbo ***mins, 5spd manual) In regards
to altitude(sic). My
girlfriend would like to go up Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii.
It can get pretty thin air, to the point that some people have to be
careful If they have respatary problems...

Thanks;
Dave

I have taken my ***mins powered Dodge up to 12,000 feet in Colorado with no
problems. The turbocharger provides the extra air needed to run at that
altitude. Now my motorcycle on the other hand has problems running up
there.

With the turbocharger pressurizing the intake manifold you won't have
a problem at any altitude where there is a road for your truck.

Doing just fine Mac. From the club and spear post, which had me
laughing out loud, I'd say you are doing pretty good your self.

I'm getting ready to retire in June. Move to PA, build a house and
shop, and start retirement with two rules:

Rule 1: Having Fun Is Job 1, (HFJ1)
Rule 2: Nothing Is Urgent (NIU) - this rule probably won't be strictly
enforced until after the house is built.

Still driving the '99 3500/***mins. It runs like a watch. It hauls
my forklift up the g**** vine with the cruise on. I think
I'll try to live long enough to wear it out! <BG>

Nedra traded the Camry on a Toyota Prius 15 months ago - that has
turned out to be a very nice car. It has 47K and change on it at the
moment and usually shows an indicated milage of 52 +/- 2 mpg. Its
been absolutely trouble free - exactly zero defects so far. They
changed the oil for the first 36K and did all the required maintenance
for free, all we have to do is try to remember where the gas filler
opening is, and drive it.

I see a lot of the Good 'Ol Boys are still here. The tone of the
group seems to be at least temporarily pretty mellow. Nice to come
back to.

I've been busy designing the new house my self. Learning a lot, and
having a lot of fun doing it.

Good to be back.
