Another thing to ask is do you have a budget for what you want to do to it? A set of 160/30 or 160/0 injectors offer a nice bump up in power without doing much else to the truck. I just did a few nice mods and a set of 160/0's for a customers 96 F250 along with a KC billet wheel and 360* bearing rebuild kit. Also put on a TS chip with PHP tuning too. Truck runs very well and clean.

I scrolled back a few pages but not all of them. Anything interesting going on?
Sorry to hear that JJ. Best of luck going forward, as tough as I'm sure it is.

Picked up the GoPro Hero5 so I tested it out firing off the S369sxe to test for leaks.

If I make 400whp, cool. If I don't, cool. If the engine runs strong, cool. If it blows up, cool. I understand that it's all hypothetical and what works for one truck may not work for another. I just like having something to aim at so when I'm looking at parts, I have an idea of what I need and what I don't.

Sorry about your loss JJ

That's a pain no parent should ever feel. And I can't imagine it. Nor do I want to. Glad you're still moving forward though!



Changed the fuel filters on my F250 yesterday.... 3 years. And 57,000 miles on them. Oops! Lol


BTS is working nicely. Put about 1,000 miles on it so far


And the Toyo AT2's are wearing great. 8,000 miles on them and I can still see the original ledge on the tread blocks. Probably only worn down about 1/32-2/32"

not much going on here

I washed and waxed the truck, don't think i had waxed it since last NOV/DEC, used to do it ever other month. really need a driver's front fender. rust is starting to get bad

ripped the deck off my GN trailer. it is in the body shop for paint, then a new deck, and go through the brakes/bearings.

pressed the old IDI into service to haul some big wood (yes matt/jj i'm baiting you)

Oil Cooler OK?

found an oil cooler f/$125 new in box.
upon inspection it does have a strange imprint on the cooling fins......
see attached...

doesn't appear to have compromised the integrity of things?

What's a quick consensus?
weird to me to see that
run it or what?
is there a way to pressure test an oil cooler before install?

i also found a OEM manifold drivers side and will think about doing the oil cooler at same time if it helps to do the manifold change out from below as opposed to from the top taking out IC tubes et. al. YES i should have changed it when I had the engine out last year, but manifold/UPGRADED oil filter head had been done in 2012 so I thought don't mess with it IF IT AIN'T BROKE..... actually just left the oil cooler hanging from the filter head as I removed the front cover.

DEFINITELY using the OEM manifold gaskets but wonder
IS THERE ANY DRESSING OR SEALANT THAT CAN BE USED IN ADDITION TO THE GASKET?
i'm worried there is enough erosion on the head itself that a leak will now always form there.....
someone said they've used Henry's roofing tar.....seems like a joke to me?

NOTE the use of an engine brake over the years seems to have facilitated leaks in the manifold.
i jerked the PACBRAKE out totally some years ago= full bore now to downpipe.
A FEW years back you could turn on the engine brake and hear the leak at the manifold instantly whining!
so put a new manifold ala Dormen made in china with the gasket supplied jerked pacbrake out.....lasted 4 years...


i have 3 complete functional Pacbrake actuators, new solenoids etc. if anyone is interested.....
