That's something else. I know my truck has had the right front fender and door worked on. Curious to see where and how long since..maybe run joshs to see I his left front shows up.

Travis, I'm going to try to round the cash up and pull the trigger as todd puts it.

Maybe someday if I ever get to get the other engine done with a bigger turbo then I will send them for a premium build which by then they will really need...sounds like a good plan?

I got some of this thermo tec heat wrap.It says it repels 90% of the radiant heat..and I swapped the 90* fitting at the pass rear hose so the hose is away from the up pipe wich is much hotter than the dp.

I removed the oe fuel hosses and fittings. Im glad I am replacing them for additional reasons because the outer shielding was cracking so it was just a matter of time. heres the swapped front fittings on both sides. also I found my ebp tube and fitting were completly clogged up si I cleaned them also.

I FINALLY have all of the plumbing on the engine completly done. I remade the drivers hose 3 times before I was happy with it. I was able to run it up between the turbo pedestal and plenum and swap the 90* hose end for a 45* going into the 1/8 npt to -6 90* fitting in the drivers head...IF that makes any sence.

I put the compression to pipe to pushlock fittings on and its all sealed up. I am pretty happy with it all..but we will see how long that lasts.

I was struggling with how I was going to go from the 5/16 hose from the switcher valve and get to the 3/8 push-loc. I had planned just to do a barb to barb connection but I could not talk myself into that.

I came up with a reducer in the filter head 1/2" pipe to 1/4" npt with a ball valve and a barb. Now the oe hose will just come off the hard line and clamp on the barb. I have seen some systems with a valve to shut fuel off when changing filters. I dont think its probably a big deal but I will try it out.




special note..^^^^ thats my vise btw...its a very good vise..we ALL need a vise..

Aaron, I am wondering about the EBPV tube. I am 99% sure mine has been gutted so does that mean the tube still needs to be cleaned? I was looking under there this morning when lookin for boost leaks and saw that it was really dirty. Dangit that Efuel setup makes me jealous!

Tomorrow I plan on welding the pump/filter bracket on and finishing the last two connections. the factory hard line will get a compression to pipe to pushloc on it and the rubber hose goes on the barb.

next will come wiring. I tore down the fuel bowl harness apart. WHAT JUNK it is. its harder than wood pecker lips. I will be rewiring that mess and doing away with the oe connector on the pass side.

fuel pump wiring needs built. I have the switch that bill and others use and plenty of relays.

I think the pcm uses it for other functions also. AND with that fancy new monitor you should be able to see turbo drive pressure by the sensor I think byron.

Hmm, I'll have to check it tomorrow and see. It doesn't seem like one of the parameters I have seen, but I could be wrong. What did you have to do to get to that tube? Am I looking at removing the turbo and all the pedestal? Man I hope not.

That looks really good A-Aron. I like it a lot. Where did you get the thermo-wrap?

Well, the bracket is welded to the frame and filters and pump are installed and plumbed. I got the oil pressure switch installed and need to get started on the wiring. I had to stop and do some cleaning on the shop. I really need to get the onan generator off my work bench so I pu t the oil pan and pickup back in. IF I dont work tomorrow because of the weather I may try to get it on the cart and the front axle torn down for the axle seals.

heres some truck ****.
