So... Tomorrow I'm pulling my Unknown/Performance cam and reinstalling my stock cam.

Well, see, I already checked the cam. Problem is, those numbers on Justin's website... aren't useful. How do I turn "Intake Duration: 178*@.050" into "Intake lifter should hit .050 at X degrees of...

Thing is, I'm pretty sure the injectors are fine. Why? Because I had this exact setup running about 3 weeks ago, when I took it apart. I never even removed the injectors from the heads!

So.. Did a bit more work on the engine.
I connected up the turbo, exhaust system, boost side of the intake.
I then installed the radiator, and started adding my bucket of coolant. At about the 4...

Yeah, if you can get them really cheap, buy em and post one in the sales forum. There are always people looking for turbo kits around here.

What I found on my trucks is that the plastic "rag joint" was just fine. It was the plastic "shim" inside the "slip joint" where the upper and lower halves join together.

So, make...
