Parts pile almost complete!

WooHoo, Parts pile is almost complete!

New (to me) Red Powder Coated IC Pipes with some barely used RiffRiff boots. (Thanks to KennyV for these! )


I'll have to order some additional (correct size) boots for the barely used 6.O Intercooler!


Home Built Turbo!
Started with a core, rebuild kit, Upgraded Banks turbine housing, ATS Ported Compressor housing.
BD Diesel Billet Compressor wheel and WasteGate actuator.
Total price for this build is just under $1000 I know for a couple hundred more I can have a 38r.
But I wanted to do the build just so I had the knowledge and should be fairly close to the same performance





Gauges.
Got my Gauges and pod finally.
AutoMeter Quad pillar, and I'm going to be the black sheep and try a different setup.
Nothing against Isspro, or AutoMeter or GlowShift. But These are Built in the U.S., and considering that these are used
by the Nascar Trucks, Nationwide and Cup folks - kinda hard to argue them being as 'untried'...
And - they have the same features as the AutoMeter Elites, but for almost half the price!





Parts I'm waiting on!
New 6.0 IC boots, and new Air Filter to replace the AFE CAI (Kind of a 6637 mod) and the Filter Cover from RiffRaff.
Hopefully have have this all in before the Fall Season!

LOL D. Figures you'd say that.
But if I do dip it - it'll be with an Eddie Van Halen Red/Black and Silver splash so that it sticks with the them I'm doing with the truck.
(as if the IC tube's weren't a hint )

Since you're in here though - could you PM me.
I need to get pricing on some U-joints (All of them) Preferably Spicers.
Clock just ticket 195k miles on the Ex - and I'm fairly sure they've not been serviced by the previous owner.

That's actually on the list for round 2 of gauges to go with Oil and Water temps (when I get my F650 dash)

As do I, but it probably won't happen until next weekend - I have to head out of town for a business trip this weekend.
But - here's a teaser - did a test fit of the gauges!
