any leads on a new turbo jake?
Not really. I looked on ebay and found some remans for around $700. I'd really like to upgrade though. I know DPP has a GTP38R for $1700 with no core charge. Thing is thats a lot of money. My grandpa said he could help me out but i really don't want to do that. He has already loaned me money that i haven't paid him back for yet.

Every junk yard i've been 2 that has a superduty, everything has been yanked off of it. Seems they do it before they hit the yard :lol:

my cup holder somewhat broke. the pop up claws that hold the drink in...the clip that holds the spring broke so i have to manually raise the claws to put a cup in it. when i lift the cup, they fall back down. now today i noticed that my front axle seals next to the yokes are bad :censored:

so i went to home depot to get a plug for the hole in the manifold for the obs, on the way back i decided what the hell and went to ford to get a price estimate since i past the ford dealer a lot.

around 5-550 parts and labor to replace "dust covers"

thats 2hrs per side and $50ish dust covers each. need two.


so it can wait awhile.
