    Boredom project, LB7 dirtymax turbo on a 6.2

    Cool project! If my wife came out and policed the completion of projects I would be in serious trouble! Some projects have conveniently been hidden from view!

    Buyer's Regret?

    Hi Tobash from a few posts up I was wondering how the 765R4 is working out? Was there certain things that pushed you toward the 765 vs built 700 when you talked to the supplier? If I ever swap I may want to try this. I have a plain vanilla canvas doors and top 6.2 '93 that runs well but I...

    Rear fender condenser questions

    Can I ask about the protection under the fenders as it wasn't clear. Once installed is there protection of the fan and exchanger from rocks being kicked up from the tires?

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    Inspector1, can you mention a little more about the kit? The model you ordered, any extra parts needed outside of the kit, how the install went and first impressions? Thanks!

    1991 HMMWV overheating

    You guys are a tough crowd! I wanted to share what I've learned with him as I only learned by asking a lot of stupid questions to patient people and reading info I was pointed toward. I give him credit for wanting to learn. It could be way worse, he could be that whistlindiesel guy on youtube...

    1991 HMMWV overheating

    Quick thoughts to add after reading this. First is if you want to check the fan at high idle there is the throttle lock under the dash. After letting it run for a minute bump up the RPMs and disconnect the thermostat sensor and see if you get the jet engine sound we all know well. If it...

    Boredom project, LB7 dirtymax turbo on a 6.2

    Is the turbo setup you have pulling exhaust from both sides or just one? Do you know the same question for the 6.7? From simple engineering I would think if the answer is the same for both the 6.2 would spit out 92% (6.2/6.7) of the exhaust volume of the 6.7 at a given rpm and therefore should...

    This has been really impressive. Did you have a background in working with Turbo's?

    Boredom project, LB7 dirtymax turbo on a 6.2

    This is pretty cool and I love the experimenting. My main reaction was to where the turbo sits. I'd either build a big custom doghouse with tons of insulating mat on it, or put a cast iron top on it and make hibachi shrimp because there's some serious heat right there!

    Camo

    See my note above yours on painting the soft top and doors. I had really good luck and they've held up great.

    Camo

    One note I'll make as mine was painted with Behr as mentioned above is that while it scratches easier its pretty easy to touch up. I also had great success with it painting the soft top and doors. I thinned it 50/50 with denatured alcohol and sprayed two light coats to take the camo soft top...
