New 2012 Member w/ Unusual Rig

Postby genrail1 [OP] » Oct 11 2019, 11:17pm

Just a quick post to introduce myself: I bought this 2012 C-2500 thru a broker from an eastern railroad equipped with Rafna hyrail gear for use on railway tracks; I've been in this business for about 40 years but am almost retired. I'm interested in mechanical and particularly fuel economy upgrades to this rig and will post to the tuner category soon. I installed a chip on my last railroad rig, a 2000 F350 Powerstroke diesel, and achieved a 3-4 mpg improvement-it certainly paid for itself. I look forward to working with all of you.

^^^^ this. But don't expect a big improvement in mpg. It will help driveability, just not much in mpg.

Welcome to the site. That looks like a really clean truck.
