This unsupervised kid has more than a hundred bucks with a shopping list like that!

Sounds like a very nice build you have going there.

I talked to Jim from rosewood today and got my injectors boxed up and shipped. I don't think I have to many parts left to order anymore. Just a few expensive ones lol. I'll probably deal with that the beginning of next week. One thing I forgot about was a fuel pressure regulator. What do most of you guys run? I was looking at the Fuelab 515/525 series. Does anyone have opinions on it?

Looks like a good sized project Nick! I run an aeromotive 13109. Bill along with a couple others have had good luck with a cheap one off of ebay, this aeromotive one isn't very cheap.

I just realized that I don't have very good pics of the inside of the motor. All in all it looked good except the one cylinder. Main bearings had a little wear but all in all not bad for the mileage IMO rings were all in descent shape.







I got into the truck last night for some much needed degreasing. There's was even paint under there still



I also started to dismantle the grill assembly for the intercooler instal and found this




And for those of you wondering why it's taking Soooo long to get this project done here it is

Man these photos take me back to just a few years ago. Sometimes I wonder why I traded training horses and ranching for the coastal life?

Yeah. I went to the wrecker and found one in pretty good shape. It's from a gasser but all I really need is the driver side. I think I'll just cut out the cancer and weld in that section from the gasser.
