Couple of new mods planned

Now that I have my truck fairly tuned well and no longer suffering through the lift, vibrations, etc I thought that now would be as best time as any to get some REAL gauges in the truck, go ahead and install the 4" MBRP (stainless) exhaust and also replace all the intercooler boots.

Boost Gauge. All the gauges all the same and I'm sure most of you have seen EV2 gauges before:

MBRP on the bottom and the box on the top is my new "A" pillar gauge holder:

Can't wait to get this stuff installed.

Have a great weekend everyone and a happy easter!

ScanGauge Combo Kit : Linear Logic : Home of the ScanGauge I love REAL gauges, but it would have been lots less expensive to go with a Scan Gauge II.

I have a scan gauge II in the truck and while it's great the boost reading is WAY off, not accurate and Exteemely slow updating since it uses the MAP sensor to read boost.

All installed also with new SWAMPS tunes. HUGE difference. One thing I did find out running the extreme tune is that the HPOP is a little weak. No big deal for now just something to consider in the future if I *want* to make more than 26-27lbs of boost! :-)
