    I think that yellow paint might give you another 20 hp and 40 foot pounds of grunt Rich. Looking good.

    I have a wind scoop that clips onto the header of my Miata. Driving around sunset gets bug parts all over my legs. I wasn't complaining about your design. I know you thought it out very well and have executed the thoughts greatly. I have the same concerns about the water ingestion...

    I wonder how good bugs lubricate a turbo? It looks great, but being where you live, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw the scoop on top.

    With our cool temps currently. I think your temp gauge is off. Or, there is something not exact in the cooling system. With only 600° EGT. It shouldn’t be over 200° using mine as a guide. The Banks manual says around 1 psi boost at 60 mph with 400°-500° EGT on flat ground. I get that at 70 mph...

    Which TPS are you using? The GM one I used read backwards. I was able to tell the TCM to reverse signal and all was good after that. See if you have that option before you get into the wires.

    350° on the EGT is about right at idle. I see 300°-400° at idle most of the time. It jumped to 275° as soon as I fired it up this morning and was at 325° or so when the cold idle kicked off. It won't make the boost gauge move until you put a good load on it. Revving won't do it and neither...

    At least those head studs have paid for themselves now. How many sets of head bolts have you not had to buy? If it holds 15 psi for more than 20 minutes or so, you are good. Overnight means you have one heck of a tight test pump and hose set up.

    Glad it is going back together again. We missed you last weekend.

    Dang Rich. Loosening an injector line while it is running will let you hear the sound go away. I have to write this too. My GEP is the loudest engine I have. The mechanical noise is just terrible. I have messed with the timing, loosened injector lines trying to find a bad cylinder, replaced...

    I'm confused. You want all AN fittings? yet, the pictures show the push in fittings. Like I wrote, I'm confused on what you need. I did AN fittings and hoses on my Cowdog truck with the stock CUCV radiator. Let me go look for what sizes I ended up using to make it all fit. That was a year...

    Dang Rich. I am sorry to read this. I have wanted to write or call the last few months but figured the hurricane and its clean up had you running too much to sleep, much less think about the truck. Do you want a bare 6.5 GM block to compare measurements with? I have one here in my class that...

    That machined elbow looked really impressive in person the other day. Did the starter work?

    There is a shop in LaGrange called American Muffler. Old guy owns and runs it. If you tell him you will be paying in cash when you walk in the door. He is very agreeable. He has made a bunch of bends for me and end flares. I just bend a coat hanger in the shape I need, show up with cash and...

    I had the same issues Rich. The smallest hard to find one was at the water pump backing plate to the pump. I think your rate of loss could just be the test pump baffles/seals or even the radiator cap seal on the adaptor. Did you ever figure out the Dalton date code code? It turns out the...

    No gasket on the Banks lid. The filter is just a hair taller than the housing and the lid seals with it.
