Remove the oil cap when you start it up and check for excessive blowby.

blow by is normal, no more than it was when I got her and looks like all the rest of the videos with "normal" blow by.

she fired right up after the injector. I primed the system and she fired right up on the first turn with no smoke at all. I was expecting some difficulty. She purrs like a kitten again. No hesitation, no rough idle, and no smoke. Pulls good on the road, and gets to 36 lbs of boost like it's nothing.

Might be time to start a new thread with new questions or answers. Old one gets overlooked.

Just for the sake of keeping this thread updated as a diary of sorts for the truck, here is a link to my engine problems thread.
