I keep reading about the body lift....then I look in my shop at my turbo converted truck using hmmwv turbo parts that has no body lift. things are close but in no danger of rubbing anything.Intake manifold bolts are in the way, plus you need 1.5-2” of body lift. The turbo trucks the military had all had 1” of body lift
How do you properly fill coolant when the cap is below the top of radiator?No body lift required. I was able to assemble a 6.2 kit from some Banks parts that were sitting on various shelves. It took a long time to find what was needed and a long time to piece it together. View attachment 735493
It was VERY tight under the hood, but got it done with only minimal modifications. Relocated a reservoir and had to install some extra heat shielding but it still gets pretty hot for the passenger.
My 0-55 time (before the front end shimmy starts) is now at the low end of the acceptable range (13 seconds) and highway merges are no longer an issue. The turbo peaks out at about 9 pounds of boost before shifting into top gear. Still rockin' the TH400.
