Lots of stuff finally done.

Finally have most of the stuff done.... Here is what I have done so far..

Raised the cab
Head gaskets
ARPs
Fuel Pressure reg kit
6.4 banjo bolts
Coolant filter
Cat EC-1
Casserly 190's
Powermax turbo
Lowered the cab (still have to put the seat in)

Got her fired up and man did it take alot of cranking.
Ran original extreme street and it ran great (just ideling with occassional tap). Switched to Eric's updated tune for the 190's and Powermax and when I tap it, it hangs like it is still fueling. Scared me once and thought I was gonna have to shut it down. Guess I will give him a call tomorrow.
Still has some long cranking but I am guessing that is to be expected for awhile.
I will tell you this...That turbo is loud. I love it.

Things left to do:
install fuel pressure gauge (waiting on column pod to arrive)
Edge CS
CCV reroute (need hoses)

Then I think I am done unless the fuel pressure dictates that I need an AirDog II

No amp steps yet.... Think I have spent enough on this project for now....

Built a garage - $20k
Installed Bendpak lift $2500

And fuel filters, oil filter and fresh T6 oil.... I like the "portside"......

Finally done..... Thanks for helping out Tom.... If you wouldn't have been in class, you could have seen the look on my face when I cranked and cranked and cranked and cranked. 30 seconds at a time for about 10 minutes. It fired and I grinned from ear to ear.....

Yeah...it was a lot of work and I was only there for a small portion of it as a helper dude...but I learned a ton. I wish I was there with you ....but I can picture your expression....stomach churning...almost wanting to throw up ...then suck, squeeze, bang, blow...the rest is compression ignition history....great that she's back up and running.

You will love it trust me I feel you on the cranking. I did it all at once and only took about 30-40 secs. But good job sounds like you have been busy!


I though that I would do the same thing with the fuel pressure.... you are going to be buying a Airdog II soon.

What size nozzles are you running in your 190s?

Not sure of the nozzles. I have whatever Ryan put on them... Guess I will give him a ring and find out what they are...
Christmas is around the corner so I can't be spending on myself anymore. Guess I will baby it until Feb. then get the airdog II
