Thanks for the update. $2 was the easy part. You forgot the labor charge for the troubleshooting and uninstalling, and installing the tank. Think of what you would have paid for a dealership to do...

I've heard of this issue but never seen it happen personally. What is broken that will not allow the mounting of the manifold? The manifold is centered on the bolts, so unless the bolt holes are...

I would pull the pan and take it out just to play it safe. It may never come out of suspension in the oil, but could possibly wreak havoc if it ever does. It may have been chewed up by the timing...

The exhaust gaskets can deteriorate over time and it may be just one cylinder. I had a broken manifold bolt on the back of cylinder 4 that I had a slight leak from. One or both of these is most...

The internal cranks did not fit in D9TE blocks without clearancing the lower cylinder bores. It could have been done, but I would not assume you have a D9 block.

Not trying to crush your dreams, but the reason I said IMHO is because it is my opinion. I only have the need for speed when I jump on something designed for it, like an R1(in my case, my '82 Maxim...

I think Darwin Awards LLC makes a chip for that... The only appropriate place to go that fast is on a well maintained track. I'm sure your truck could be built up enough to make it possible, but...

Hinges, latches and posts for ATV ramp tailgate?

I'm wondering what would be in my best interest to install for hardware on a homemade ATV ramp. I have spent little time tinkering with 12th gen trucks, as it is my 9th gen's that need it most.

If you have cast iron manifolds in good shape you can take them to a respectable builder that does headwork and get them planed. Many people have had good luck doing this and not running gaskets at...

I have had good luck with fel-pro kits from napa. The biggest factor in doing a head job well is getting every surface clean, even, and flush relative to the desired result. To me gaskets are gaskets...

I'm not sure about the sending units on those older motors, but you want a pre-72 or an 88-97 timing set. I'm not sure if you will get a double roller set if you order the older ones, so I would get...

Any luck? What is your goal? I know the I6 isn't a high RPM motor, but a turbo would give you a good bump. The manifold you have can move quite a bit of air.
