Back then, my brother had a 1988 Toyota 4x4 pickup. I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. Something about being able to throw some dirt bikes in the back and still being able to sneak into tight trails just made me love that truck. When I was old enough, I bought a 1984 Toyota extra-cab pickup. After rebuilding the engine and making it drivable, I drove it to school on 32s and thought I was the coolest kid around. Things progressed and I started working for a local off-road shop where I learned even more about off-road trucks and Jeeps. By then, my paychecks for selling parts to customers only went to buying parts for myself. I went from stock axles to building custom hybrid axles that held 37s. At this point I was getting tickets left and right. Fender flares. Mud flaps. You name it. I got pulled over for all of it. Eventually, all those tickets got me interested in buying a vehicle to tow with, which brought me back to my diesel roots. But owning a diesel didn’t change my habits. I just started building my wheelers bigger and meaner with one ton axles and 40s.
I was following Power Products closely back then because I was impressed with their builds and project vehicles. The day I noticed they had a position open for technical sales, I jumped at the chance. I truly believe this is one of the best companies to be with. The knowledge that’s under this roof is remarkable. We are all highly experienced with similar passions. This is what makes us so unique. We are not salesmen, we’re just guys and girls that love trucks.
In my off time, I am into motocross. I started riding at the age of two and racing at the age of nine. One of my proudest accomplishments is getting a 3rd overall at the 125 Dream Race at Washougal MX. On most weekends, you can still find me riding my KTM 24 on tracks from Washington to Oregon. When I am off the clock and off the bike, I like to be in the mountains, adventure riding, shooting, fishing, camping, or just spending time with my family.
I have a 91 ic W250 5 speed stock. Everything under recipes for horsepower looks great and will be ordering parts soon.Everything looks good but the turbo wouldn’t fit.i was curious what my options were as far as turbos.Also are 2nd gen turbos interchangeable with 1st gen? And lastly will a 4 inch turbo back kit bolt right up to my stock h1c. I’m getting ahead of myself won’t be ordering for awhile I’d just like to learn ahead of time thanks in advance?
So we went a little outside the box, and selected a turbo for a second gen to go on the first gen for the 400hp recipie. We just didn't have a direct fit turbo that would have been capable of 400hp and still operating in its compressor map. It is common to put a 2nd gen style turbo on that truck. If you were to keep your stock h1c any of the 89-93 turbo back kits would work. If you don't plan on keeping the h1c. you will have to get a turbo back kit and use the supplied downpipe in the turbo kit, or get one with the correct flange. If you have any questions shoot us a call. -Sands
