Looking for information on how to add more HP to a 2001 International T444E 175HP
Most everything for a ford will work fine just go to the banks site and shop.
The motor is the same but all the electronics are different.
Not as much as you think we put all kinds of banks shit on them. Six gun tunners ,big hoss modules, high boost comp wheel, exhaust brake and a big head wastegate actuator and the things run their ass off.
You can do the 10K mod to it for about $5 bucks and pick up some pretty noticeable torque. You can do it yourself in about 2 hours.
I am aware of the 10K Mod. I am looking for additional things to help with the power. The newer IH T444E motors are different than the older in the Electonics parts and the Banks and most other pieces for the Ford application will not work on them. Seems like someone somewhere has run into this besides me.
I'm sure NeverenufHP will be reading this soon. he can help, too.
BTW WELCOME TO THE SITE!!!!!
We look forward to your participation & letting us know how you make out with your T444E!!!
We used a ford ECM because NAV pak will not commicate with the banks stuff.
I think Hypermax makes the Maxchip for the T444e. The other option is to swap to the Ford ECM and use your choice of performance module. Then you can add the fuel pressure regulator shim, and the 10k or diode(clamp) mod. Then....if that's still not enuf, you can call Diesel Innovations to order a set of custom hybred injectors :Sly , but then you'd need a lot more air. It's a vicious cycle!
Changing the ECM is not an option because truck has cruise and all electronic dash. Which would not work with changing to Ford Electronics. I was hoping to find out if there is a way to reprogram or replace the IH electronics. They offer this motor up to 250HP. I imagine most of the difference is in the computer.
well....I would imagine it's more than just the ECM. Check the part #'s that are in it now, but I'm thinking you'll probably have to swap the injectors out to make it a 250HP version.
