Got the pyrometer in the manifold :eek:hno: and I'm now looking hard for a bigger intercooler and Coolertubz and possibly a bigger turbo . . . 1600* at top end doesn't sit well with me :thud:

Washed, installed a cover on the winch hole in the bed, installed a bracket to hold the hi-lift, added some foam to help waterproof between the cap and the bed, rubber on the cap hatch (so no more scratching the tailgate), ran the cables from the winch to where the battery will be installed, changed the screens on the cap

thanks to mark nixon i have a mirror on the driver side of my truck that doesnt look like a spiders web. it took about 20 minutes to change which is a nice change from the typical hours of work it takes to do most things lately.

lost reverse

the reverse servo arm is hanging, and the spring forced its way threw the retainer cup. the shaft the holds the arm in is sticking out of the back of the trans case

Thanks Baxter, I will post a pic when I get it done. So far I'm happy with how it's looking, I built one for my '00 I had but didn't really like how it turned out so I gave it to a buddy. He likes it so it worked out I guess. Other than that I installed my 4" exhaust with a muffler, can't believe I put the muffler on but I kinda like it. Can't believe I just said that......

I also moved egt probe from downpipe to manifold.

Got 285s all around. Had to trim the front fenders a lil so they wouldn't rub. They look real good. Also got it inspected. And Sunday put on a side pipe.

got back from a 800 mile trip to maine and back. got about 17-18 mpg towing a 12' landscape trailer with quads on it and other stuff to camp out. sucked driving with noise from the stack and got a good workout trying to keep the trailer from swaying back and forth all the time at 65-70mph. dont know why it did it. oh and kicked some powerchokers on the highway, just because it smokes alot dont always mean you have all the power in the world. :rof
