Going Under The Knife





Clearance on the front, just a wee bit tight, had to take the front bumper off.


Going to go slow for a while, have many things that need addressed. Full time work/school/family means I can only sacrifice 8-10 hours a week without killing grades.

Getting a BPD oil cooler as...

Just a tad to high delta wise (this was towing around 5500 pounds)
Head studs, gaskets, etc.

Your build is exactly what I want to do, I just don't have the time nor the resources

Alrighty, done for the day. This is as of 3:35pm, so about 4 hours of work today if I take out lunch time.

Much nicer to have the intake unbolted, unbolt the turbo and push it up off the drain, pull the intake out, then pull the turbo. Pulling the turbo over the intake (that's what I did when I did the EGR delete) is much harder as there is almost no clearance.

I also wish I had pulled the wiring completely from one side so it wasn't laying across the valley like that. Didn't cause any problems besides me not wanting any wiring to fall into the oil.

Next time I'm pulling the AC crapola from the firewall. Got to research that first to see what I'm up against.
