    What do you think?

    I would see if you can get it a bit cheaper actually. I got mine for $4k with 249k on it 4 years ago. Now it has 330k miles and still runs like a champ and still hits the drag strip here and there.

    Future plans. Injectors???

    Swamps, Casserly, Jim Rose(diy-injectors), and Nate @ unlimited all build some very good injectors. i have had 2 sets from Jim. i upgraded to stage 1's the first time(160cc w/ stock nozzles) and i liked them a lot. were good for 352hp/731tq w/ the stock turbo. then i upgraded from those to...

    inline pump???when did this happen?

    when i priced a p-pump swap for mine it was going to cost me around $11k for everything IIRC. the pumps most are using are an inline 8 cylinder pump off one of the big IH engines. injectors are usually from an 8.1?? cummins and they use adapters in the injector ports to make them work. problem...

    Help Needed Is it my TW chip?

    glad to hear you got your fixed up!!! i got mine fixed as well but not as cheap as you did. mine actually turned out to be injectors. mine was bleeding off HPO from the poppets in the injectors. haha

    well im going back to stock 97 splits again

    yes the o-rings can be reused. i actually have dyno proof that bigger injectors on the stock turbo don't do you any good, but they actually hurt you more. i did 352hp and 731tq on the dyno early this year. my buddy's OBS on the same day and same dyno with hybrids and stock turbo and basically...

    is it my imagination

    2 years ago at our annual dyno even we did a test on synthetic vs. conventional oil on the dyno. ran once with clean Delo. stopped, changed the oil to royal purple synthetic. dyno'd again. picked up 13hp just off changing the oil to synthetic. if i knew my engine wouldn't just leak synthetic out...

    oil pan replacement questions

    i have seen them done in the truck many times. it is possible and don't take 9 hours either. takes a few hours and nothing goes back in weak either. start out by cutting the crossmember enough to be able to get the pan out(NO THE ENGINE WILL NOT MOVE!!!!). do all your work on the pan then when...

    Tired of Stock Turbo failures

    being as the d66 has the stock center section in it i don't believe this turbo to be much more reliable than stock. the h2e setup can be had with or without the intercooler setup. they make pipes for the cooler or a bypass for non intercooled setups. i would go the h2e route. you can get the kit...

    Goal: Insane dyno number

    after speaking with some people i have some more info for you. the stock forged rods can handle around 600hp with some really really good tuning. the block can do around 700hp in stock configuration and can go more with a girdle, but for your 1,000hp goal you will need to do crower rods, mahle...

    changed hvop and now have haveno oil pressue

    you sure that you got the gear on the HPOP seated correctly??? if so i would venture to say that your HPOP that you got isn't in good shape.. if it ran fine before you changed it, but just had an oil leak then my guess is the HPOP.

    test turbo boost

    buy a $50 boost guage, "T" it into the map line and see what your boost is under load when accelerating. that will tell you what your wanting to know. mechanics can't just hook up a computer and tell you that kind of thing.
