10-4, might have to wait until they are then. I'm pretty much out for the rest of the season due to my trans and now I'm going to be getting my injectors gone through so that will probably tie me.

That's good to know about the G4 clutches, I'm hoping to get my built trans tore apart here in the next month or so then I can get parts ordered.

Can a bone stock 5spd handle a c3 oiler like the original Mike L design pulling off the test port or does it not have enough pressure/flow to compensate this?

10-4, I am thinking I can get by with just the 2020. Hottest I see is ~95f ambient and we don't have tons of hills. For under $250 I think its a worthwhile upgrade to help keep the oil cool.

Glad to hear this is working awesome! From what I've read, you're seeing lower temps with the 2020 cooler than you were seeing with the factory cooler and external cooler, is that correct?

To counter, I never said porosity IS the issue, I said it CAN be an issue as with the manufacturing process and is a potential unknown variable making every piston theoretically different. I also...

If I do recall, about 8 months ago a forum member cracked a fingers piston at ~1200whp mark. They are an unknown. Some have held 1600-1800hp and some have failed closer to the 1000hp mark. Are they...

They are a proven piston but as any cast piston they do have their limitations in what the material can withstand. I am not a fan of the haze at idle on a daily driven truck that I've seen in a few...

A cast piston has limitations purely from the material, there is absolutely no way around it. It seems like anything over 1000hp is playing with fire. Some guys have pistons that live and some can't...

I know about Diamond's steel ring land pistons but D&J used to list the FSR piston for a duramax application on their website ~18mo ago when I was building my engine.

IMO go forged from CP or Mahle. The days where a forged piston was only good for one to two seasons is long gone. SoCal, according to Guy's commentary on one of the diesel podcasts, was that they did...

It's worth a hell of a lot more than you think. While it may not have crazy amounts of lift it does have much better duration and timing of opening/closing the valves.

I'm running stock heads with nothing but springs. I do have a 6480AF tho. Dumb question, why a stock cam? No budget or just don't want to change it?

I doubt an 88 will be too small, my single 80 has done 1340/2200. I think your limiting factor will end up being the valley charger. IHI or S300 are probably going to be your best bets IMO vs a VGT....

I want to run a 64 ihi and a 476/96/1.10 or 1.15 on my daily/tow rig with stock injectors, see how it runs.

Too closely sized IMO. 369/488 would be pretty awesome. If you've got the 475 and don't want to replace it you could always go a smaller S300 in the valley.
