    Bought a Sierra as Donortruck - now he stay

    Not sure what your rear gears are but mine are 3.08's, perfect for cruising. A turbo with the ip turned up wont' stress the engine, I was running 22 psi for years, but I also studded the heads, as the original 84 head gaskets didn't like some boost, lol. These IDI engines crave boost. I would...

    Bought a Sierra as Donortruck - now he stay

    I had an HX35 on mine, with a Super40 compressor wheel, no lag but a bit too much emp, so I was going to put a 14cm housing on, then things changed. Will actually quieten up the exhaust, :) The HX40 wakes up the engines, but with your laws, looks like you won't be able to do it. Just turn the...

    Bought a Sierra as Donortruck - now he stay

    You don't mess around. Get the stainless Dorman brake line kit, its awesome. I had drone issues on my truck, had to build a resonator tube before the muffler, worked like a charm. Also make it quieter but still has a nice tone when getting on it. These trucks don't have lag so if you did, the...

    6 speed to 5 speed swap!

    Awesome. Yeah, the stocker went a long time. Any link on modding the converter valve? New oem spring or aftermarket? No plans on cranking, just a nice tow tune, that's all I need. :) We all know that slippery slope, more power here equals more money over here, then over there and so on and so...

    6 speed to 5 speed swap!

    May I ask why? They only show one kit for the 5 speed and one for the 6 speed. It says you can use the 6 speed JR in the 5 speed but it won't get the benefits of higher clutch holding power. Always open to learning. Thanks again.

    6 speed to 5 speed swap!

    Thanks, forgot about that. Gotta call Transgo and see which kit they recommend as I was reading their notes on what kit does what.

    Injector voltage issue

    Did you bleed/prime the fuel system? It can take along time to get all the air out. Classic sign is what you are seeing. Does the scanner say cam/crank sync is good? Does it show cranking rpm? You said you bought it not running, did you try and get it running before you tore the heads off? Why...

    6 speed to 5 speed swap!

    They came out of wrecked vehicles, 100,000 km's, fluid cherry red. Pans were dropped, no metal etc in the pan. Will be using my aftermarket converter. Selling them for $550 complete. Has 2 left, blowing out stock. My original went 450K, so this should get me a few years, and time to get the 5...

    6 speed to 5 speed swap!

    Long story short, I hurt 5th gear towing, so short on time, I can get a 6 speed with 100k, for a reasonable price. If I put my 5speed wiring and valve body in, will it work? If it will work, anything I should do while I am swapping it? TIA.

    Maintenance and Lift Pump

    I just bought the quick disconnect connectors so I didn't have to cut the metal line. Cleaner and easier IMHO. For that way, only need say 6ft or so.

    Lb7 crank no start after motor swap

    I agree, stealing in my area is brutal, watched a guy on camera steal a 06 F350 from the shop, in literally 10 secs. Other shop owners were here and because it was so fast, they thought it was the customer picking it up. Quite possible, I bought it used and never saw a security light.

    Sound coming from airbox.

    I did read the thread, saw it all, hence my question. Looked up billet as well, guess I misunderstood what billet was. Understand the belt and suspenders approach, sucks when you do that and still have issues. :(

    Borrowed FIL's truck, now it is leaking. 6.6L LB7

    Are they both the same part?

    Sound coming from airbox.

    How can those hold downs be called billet? They look cast. Maybe I missed it, what's wrong with the stock hold downs? I feel your pain, had to rip into mine a few times, not a nice job by any means.

    Lb7 crank no start after motor swap

    Use the original ECM. Did you remove the egr off the new engine? My 02 doesn't have theft. Did you bleed the fuel system properly?

    Renewable diesel?
