Extra parts on the garage floor...

Finally got some time to work on the new red truck... got the new Stancor GPR on the other day, and WOW, starts great... the fact that the prev. owner had changed all glow plugs helps too, but still, fastest cold start I've ever seen out of any of my PSD's...

Was looking at the air box, and with a little wiggling, and swapping the filter-to-CCV adaptor tube end for end, and a 7" pc of 4" exhaust pipe, the DIY filter fit down in there, on a bit of and angle, but in there nicely. Done in about 15 minutes. With no bends in the pipe.

Yesterday, I was checking the u-joints and such, and noticed the yoke on the back of the transfer case was lose. So, drive shaft had to come out to fix/tighten that up, and since the drive shaft was out of the way, I couldn't talk myself out of grabbing the sawzall, and a few cuts later, and rolling over the MIG welder, straight pipe is what we have... about 61" of it to be exact!

On a side note, I found a used cat on the floor of my shop, anybody know what one is worth? Looks like it might fit my PSD's, if I ever needed a replacement one!!! Still has the muffler attached... whole assembly would be about 61" long if it had to be shipped...

I'd like to get some gauges in next... any sugjestions on where to get the boost pressure in the intake manifold? I posted something in the E99 section, but... any ideas? Can existing holes be used, to avoid removal/drilling/tapping of the intake manifold? Help...

What threads does the MAP sensor fitting that goes into the spider use? NPT or something metric? Metric won't surprise me... but makes finding fittings to use here in hill country harder to do...

Your gauge should have the 1/8-27 NPT fitting with it, I think it is the standard size that comes with them....Fred
