Sounds like a good Saturday Sous!!! I am looking forward to those vids. I am sure they will be top-notch. Cheers!

Oh, one question. Do you enjoy brews while working on the truck? I have had buddies who refuse to for fear of making bad decisions. For me, I GOTTA have it in between takes for sanity and enjoyment of the process LOL...for me, it's part of wrenching. Just wondering.

I enjoy a good brew anytime! Seriously though, if it is something that I am very familiar with I will have a couple of beers while working on it. Although, something like this I normally wait until I am in the downhill slope and cleaning up. Then I have a either a victory beer or a defeat beer. The best thing about beer is that they are good and suited for any situation...

I saw that this morning too, the Subaru’s AWD is a lot different than the F350 4x4 which is really 2x2. Combine that with choosing a better line and then your tire choices it’s the difference between needing tinted windows to hide your shame or being the hero...

Well, it’s 30* here freezing Fog and rain and the sun has set so black ice will be forming too. This morning the fog was freezing, and so thick you couldn’t see 10’ in front of you, combine that with the idiots that don’t turn their lights on and it was dangerous to be on the roads.

John, I hear you about the idiots with no lights in the fog. Had to deal with it on mountain roads at times when it was barely daylight, and they were doing 55 MPH with near zero visibility to boot.

brian42 I'll most likely post results, however my install timeframe is currently in the not soon category. Thinking Late Jan to Feb. Planning on replacing the original hpop lines with CNC design ones before we tow 5er again so plan on doing that PM work while I'm in there n its less cluttered. Getting some other odds n ends together to make it a multi day job with some more deep cleaning and PM stuff. My day to day driving is very grandpa with a 7 minute drive to work in 35 zones, so real results probably won't be very telling till I'm hooked up n towing again in March.

Coffee done, now just working up the bravery to step out into the arctic (almost up to 57 degrees outside now) to install a CPS in an Infinity then tinker around with random chores.

This is exactly the problem I will be having (if you can call it a problem) with the SXE/T4 system I am installing now. I can drive the truck around town all day long, but until I hook up the 5th wheel I won't know what the real differences are.

I have big plans for the 5th wheel once I get done with the truck though. An entire solar charging system is going into it this winter in prep for our long journey back out west again in the spring. So, once the SXE is done, the 5th is done, I will have a lot of road time (~15,000 miles) hitting both of them the first half of next year.

First world problems...

No worries. I’m the guy who took 9 months to swap injectors so don’t feel rushed on my account.

I’m slowly coming to the realization that I’m probably going to keep my stock turbo. I’m not interested in going over 30psi boost or in spending $1500 to “probably” clear up my smoke (plus the 38R is not rebuildable). I’ve already modified the compressor side and wonder if there’s something I can do to the turbine side to help. There’s not a lot of SOTP info out there so am curious on your before and after thoughts whenever it happens.

I’ve still got traction bars, leaf spring, relay boxes, and a stack of other projects before I consider pulling the turbo off.

Sous, you have mentioned the N. State (Cal) a couple of times. Is that part of your game plan? Still have plenty of nice areas to visit in spite of the fires. At least Burney Falls is still with us.

Maybe not directly for next spring, but it could be. We plan to take 60-90 days and head out to north ID for a family wedding, then back home via whatever route we choose.

Even if north CA is not next year, it is on our list of must see places.

Have you considered a van turbo with a replacement billet wheel? I've heard people post really good results with that setup.

Iíve already modified the compressor side and wonder if thereís something I can do to the turbine side to help.
A long time ago (about 13, 14 years now), back when the ATS ported housing and wicked wheel were continually on back order, I went with a wicked wheel and BDP's 1.0 exhaust housing I dunno if that's even an option anymore.

I thought that increasing the exhaust housing size increases lag time thereby exacerbating the smoke issue?

I could easily be wrong in my assumptions as I have not delved far into housing swaps and van turbos based on my assumption.

To clarify my “smoke” issue: it is a lingering “puff” of haze if I jump on it in my non-performance tunes. I don’t want you guys to think I’m rolling coal everywhere. If I roll into the throttle there’s no smoke.

I headed up to Buena Vista area about 4am to try and find an elk willing to hold still for me(no dice). I left my truck at my buddies house in Black Forest, took his truck up there(6.0 and he offered to drive). When we got back to his house the 1/8" thick ice on my windshield took 3 buckets of warm water to clear. Was an interesting drive home, all good once I got to the dirt roads.

Nice this morning on my little ranchette.
