ATS Intake Housing, Beans Diesel (ATS) 1.0 Exhaust Housing and NEW UP-Piping

Indiana Strokers Working Together AGAIN!!!!

It was a dark evening in the truck shop, but at about 8:30, things begin to roll pretty fast. Myself and Blackcloudstroker were ripping the turbo out of my truck and getting all of the pipes loose leading up to it. I had parts coming in for about 3 days in a row, so it was time to get started. House and BigWhiteStroke came and we were busy working on the turbo all evening. We had it out and ready for the new parts in less than an hour with Jim sitting on the tractor again.

We had a little bit of trouble getting things to line back up, and after House got me warmed up to the idea of drilling into my manifold, we reinstalled the pyro-probe too.

Everything went as planned, and the only thing that gave us a little trouble was the new downpipe that came with my 5". It wouldn't budge much at all, but a big pry bar took care of that.

The instant results from all of the hard work were in the clean crisp sound of the parts working together. As soon as I got a chance, I got it out on the interstate and jumped up to 85 and boy was a excited to hear no more leaking pipes!!!

the power is amazing, the sound is beautiful, and most importantly, the evening was great with all the guys workin together. I think we will be doing a few trucks in the near future after everyone gets a chance to see the results!

So far I saw an immediate improvement from 13mpg to 16.5 mpg!!!

Thanks again for those who helped!!

Adam

Yes, it was the body of Freshman Wade Steffey. He had been missing since Jan 13th. Its been real sober around here the last 36 hours, its amazing even know you have never met the kid how it can impact you... It was a utility room that is locked all the time... or supposed to be. No details as of yet.
