What kind of HP do you think could get out of a 3208 cat without a turbo?

Most of the trucks I owned were rated at 225 HP but were governed to run no more than 60MPH. I did have a Ford rated 210 HP governed at 57 mph.

210hp Stock fly wheel on a NA 3208. You can get more power but not reliably if pulled hard continuously. The 3208 could not get rid of the heat in the top end. Every one I've taken apart had blueing to the pistons. The turbo engines use piston coolers. The 3150 I'm not sure. I've left my 3150 bare bones stock and it's treated me well. I wish I knew how to add photos. I have a few of what happens to a turned up 3208.

Larry, My brother has a White 2255 mfwd with a 3208 set at 190 horse power and it works really good with no problems and gets much better fuel economy than his 140 white with that wonderful cummins that the block split from end to end just blow the head at less than 2000 hours.

Not sure without a turbo. Had a guy I worked with swear in a marine application you could get400+ out of one if you wanted zero longevity. I gotta ask what you have in mind. After your last project my interest is peaked.

Thinking about selling a pristine 990 and 4441 six bottom pipe plow that I restored and finding a decent 2255 MFWD, play with it for a while before I restored it. I had many hours on a 2255 2 wheel drive years ago.

if you do end up looking for one we have 3 green ones and 3 red mfwd ones, not sure off hand how many are 3208 or 3150. If your gonna end up restoring it, I wouldn't put a turbo on it unless you planned to take it back off when restoring.

About 225 HP with engine stock. I'm sure you can easily get more with a good cam, head porting, injectors, etc. Pump probably puts out enough fuel for 250HP

Thanks, was wondering what a person could get without making the tractor non farmable.
