Update on my head job...

Hey guys,

Maybe some of you recall my issues with my truck putting diesel fuel into my cooling system. Well, sure enough, I had a cracked passenger side head. So, I ordered a pair of remanufactured heads, ARP head studs, black onyx head gaskets, a new oil cooler, and all the related goodies. Luckily, a friend of mine owns a shop and cut me a great deal on labor. However, he is also finding other issues. Turns out my radiator is junk. Apparently he took the trans cooler lines off, and coolant came out of the cooler...not good. Luckily, (somehow) no coolant made it into the transmission itself. He checked the trans fluid, and it looked good, and I didn't see any problems when I changed the trans filter last week. Then, he found out the turbocharger exhaust pipe adapter was broken. It literally was in two pieces, broken at the flex joint. Its amazing that that didn't make any exhaust noise, but that sure explains my severe turbo lag. So, I am waiting on a new radiator, all new hoses, the turbo exhaust pipe adapter, and new glow plugs. I sure hope that is it! My wallet can't stand much more of this!

If the work is done right you will go crazy for how the truck will fee lafter all that work

Have him replace the STC fitting while he has it apart.

Mines in the shop right now too, for blown headgaskets. I provided the dealership with the ARP studs ($400), upgraded oil cooler screen ($10), and upgraded HPOP STC fitting ($50), and they're not charging me for the labor. Since my warranty is covering the work, they're rebuilding my turbo with a new unison ring, and upgraded oil drain tube.*

I got some cool pics posted as well:

Yea I plan on dropping the pan anyway.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.
