    Mac, I live in Denver and recently bought a "Fambulance" 1990 E350 7.3idi Ambulance (4x4) . Wondering if you might be able to help me at least check the timing. I brought it up to arapahoe basin this last weekend (over loveland pass) and she was really puking black smoke at altitude and I'm wondering if I need to turn down the fuel, advance timing or a little of both. Any help is appreciated. My cell is 720- four one 5- nine four zero one. THANKS- MIKE I can help offset the cost of your ferret meter purchase too if you still have it. I just don't want to get bent over by the local smog shops that do repairs too and are itching to get their hands on your car and bill you accordingly.

    Hey Mac, seen youve had decent luck with getting your up pipe to seal. The 088 on my 92 leaks pretty profusely.. i see half the boost i should and it takes twice as long as it should to get there. Oh ya.. and 3/4 of the firewall is black lol. Im assuming the 088 and 093 are "similar" so i was wondering, did you pull the turbo, or were you able to just pull the DP and up pipe 'Y' ?

    Thanks Mac, I'll get them. Just wanted to do this today. The local stores can order them, but it will be Tuesday before I get them. It's all good. Just more waiting.

    Hey Mac. Did you get new exhaust manifold gaskets when you installed your pyro? I can't find ANY here at my local stores.

    Thanks Mac. I went ahead and got a 1/2" to 1/8" reducer knowing if the plug wasn't 1/2" that I could use the light hole. I sent a text to 94 and he told me that the oil was 1/4". Was gonna use the plug above the oil cooler like you suggested, but the glowshift sender is pretty big and would had to have used a long nipple. It was going to stick way out there. I'm in Tennessee by the way. But thanks for all the info and suggestions. Put your # in my phone. Thanks again.

    Mac, do you know what thread size the oil sender on the ats turbo is? Also is the plug 94 referred to 1/2" also? Making a trip to the hardware store and I have to take the truck. Just want to get the right stuff without guessing, as the only store thats open is lowes and its over 30 miles away! Kickin it in the sticks!
