When does it end?

I tell ya it has not been cheap, I bought my early 99 last April knowing it had problems but I wish I had done a little more research first. This beast has hit pretty much every issue people have had short of shut down no restart. (knock on wood) just on the engine, I replaced the starter, alternator and riser pipes last year but in the last 3 months I have had to replace the injectors, the entire A/C system, both manifolds and riser pipes, water pump, idler pulley, tensioner assembly, valve cover gasket/wire harness, fan blades and head light buckets. Soon to be replaced will be the hpop, cps, fpr and power steering pump. should be a new rig by the time I get done.

actually it has 317,xxx on it, everything seems strong. It came with a 60hp superchip and I have swapped to the ford AIS intake, just did the zoodad behind the grill and the boost fooler. so far the improvements have helped a lot but I will know the true results when I get the new hpop on and fpr rebuilt.

I will look into it, the stock water pump made it over 100k before it pooped out, may have been stock. But a filter kit would be nice and I can get the filters that have the additive in it.

I found it on ebay. what you get is an inline vacuum booster (I think) that goes in line between the map sensor and the turbo Y-pipe. also you get a plastic vacuum splice with a hole drilled in it that attaches to the waste gate valve. The concept creates a vacuum relief at the waste gate holding it open longer allowing the turbo to spool up quicker and longer, it also helps to reduce black smoke. although it is supposed to "fool" the map sensor it still throws a code for excessive waste gate something.
