    Squeal on acceleration

    Usually need to go back in after a few heat cycles to make sure no bolts backed out. Sounds like the cause here.

    02' LB7 Tow Pig Build

    I used high temp engine enamel as well from VHT. I’m happy with it.

    LLY - Cracked piston

    Just wanted to throw this up for those who followed this build.. took the rig out camping (finally) and everything went perfectly. Temps perfect, smoke level could be fine tuned but much better, great power, egts staying around 1150-1200 on med throttle up hill. BTW she doesn’t need full...

    04’ Lb7 smokes a lot at idle

    Fill out your sig so we know what we’re looking at. Any tuning? If stock, likely an injector issue. Have you checked balance rates?

    Squeal on acceleration

    I agree with the folks prior. I just went through this and I had identical leaks on both manifold to up pipes on brand new gaskets. Luckily, the truck was having tuning problems so it was smoking like crazy and I spotted the leaks quickly. They were leaking on the flange toward the block on both...

    Empty trailer weight is 15K. It's 3200 on the pin fully loaded. I've got about 10K miles with this rig on various cross country trips and the latest to coos Oregon and back has been by far the best with all the recent build changes.

    Crankshaft Question

    I went with super damper (better for the higher HP application) and also upgraded the flex plate to a BD. Neither are required but I found cracking in the OEM flexplate.

    Crankshaft Question

    It’s not really about power level. Stock cranks can break at stock power. It’s all harmonics. Adjusting the firing order helps move the harmonic profile, but it’s not a sure fire answer. As others said, the only guarantee is to address that specifically. I chose to make an educated guess based...

    Banks Econmind/Six Gun Tune

    I had banks years ago and it will not turn off/command off the EGR or ignore the code if you are deleted. My kit was much older than the stuff they have on the shelf today with regard to the display compatibility. Back in the day, I used the various solutions to keep the egr "active" and...

    Crankshaft Question

    I am running the stock LLY crank in my build and using an AF Socal 3388 cam. My crank was mag checked and it looked good. Stock bearings looked brand new, no burns or burs. The crank mic'd out perfectly in spec so it was polished an setup for the new build. With a little bit of weight added to...

    LLY - Cracked piston

    New gaskets in, all seem ok but I need to put some mileage on it and see how she does. From a build standpoint, I think we're there. Thanks all!

    LLY Tuning - Built Engine/Compounds

    New gaskets in, boost leak test done, and all seems good for now. I'm going to put another 1k on it to feel it out and see if I notice any major issues. The smoke output is better, but still leaves some to be desired but I'd say about 50% better than it was.

    Any issue with using a gravity feed auxiliary fuel tank on an LBZ?

    I use a gravity feed tank in my truck. The best trick is to add a manual switch and fuel solenoid valve on the feed line. You'll want a naturally closed solenoid. I did this and can flip the switch on/off whenever I feel like it. As you had thought, the truck can't run on "full" for too long or...

    Basically is! Now you see why I have the mods I have lol. I have bags and an additional leaf in the rear too. In the picture above, everything is aired down so it looks like it’s sagging but on level ground everything sits pretty. It tows really comfortably and I’m happy with it. But yeah, I’m...

    Turbo Options ?

    Ah I should correct here though. I just saw you haven’t built the trans. Agree with all above. You can kill the trans with stock parts and tuning alone. That’s the first thing you’ll want to do. Otherwise - stay stock with the hardware.
