Yes, and the interior. I get those up pipes and I'll be ready to fire it up.

Good deal! I'm anxious to see how your EGTs and boost are now.

My thoughts also.. I'm having a hard time convincing myself to give Irate a shot on my trucks because of his communication problems.

My new up pipes are scheduled to be here is a few hours. I'm tempted to keep the old ones but I'll put them in the pre-payed box and send them back. Its to bad because I spent money fixing them and time putting in the turbo and taking it out again. All because of his communication problems. It looks to me that there are two guys here that changed their minds about buying from Irate because of all this talk. Also, he would never tell me about the up grade on the s366 that I asked him about several times.

I remember this being mentioned before... what was the upgrade? Link?

I guess a different wheel to move 100 more ccf's of air. I probably got the ccf's wrong but you get the point. I don't know about a link.

I found it Richard, this is what Jake said:

"There is an upgrade that can be done to the turbo. It increases the flow of the turbo by about 100cfm and will have a broader compressor map as well."

Edit: He said he would get back to me on how much and how long but never did!!

Glenn, I'd keep them until you made sure your new ones are good with no leaks.

I also agree with keeping them until you know yours are ok..

I have bought from Jake before with success, but some of things I've asked him in the past went unanswered as well. I think the last one was when he was trying to sell some Carillo connecting rods. I asked him if he knew the difference in weight between Carillo and stock rods. He said he would find out and get back to me. Never got back to me, so I didn't buy the rods from him. Maybe he's easier to talk to on the phone, don't know.
