I don't plan on racing it I don't care to burn rubber all over the pavement. Do want something for great acceleration when needed, and good for towing up and down mountain passes.
Depends on what injectors you might plan on going with down the road. If you stay stock, then this turbo.

Thanks--I will keep that in mind when I need to replace it. Any idea on what bellowed up-pipe kit I should get? I've looked at Amazon and they go anywhere from $60 to several hundred. I don't need the "y", just the pipes and associated hardware. The injectors are already costing me over a grand.

Think I'll keep my original boots since they still seem good and plyable--save a few bucks that way.

As for the oil, my turbo is leaking pretty good, so that is probably it.
Questions:

1. How long do injectors normally last? (I've had these in for 120k miles)

2. If it is a bad injector--and the only one that a system check shows is bad, should I get all 8 replaced or just the four on the side of the bad one (I figure at least all the injectors on the one side since the labor cost will mostly already be paid)?

3. Should I replace the glow plug wiring harness (and maybe glow plugs) in there since it and the glow plugs were done at that time as well--just as a routine maintenance?


4. What would be a great turbo to get to replace this one? A friend of mine was saying about a place near Denver that has turbos with the EBPV delete-dunno the brand yet, though. He said they go for $1,800.

5. Any idea why this forum had me logged out? I wasn't getting any notices the last couple days and when I went in here to post, I had to log in.

May head to Lowe’s/tractor supply since the dog can hang out there too.
I liked my Grabber AT2's they do pack up with snow pretty quickly but always felt like they still had traction

It was a tie between those and the Yokohoma geolander at g105. They make the BFgoodrich all terrain‘s in her size like my truck has but they’re very $$$ and way heavier than oem.

Figured will run them this winter and see how the wife likes them. Heck she ran her summer tires last winter and did just fine LOL these out to be a nice upgrade.
