Default Winter builds

Anyone have any builds happen over the past winter? Mine ended in Hibernating again this winter with a bunch of little issues, like no glow plugs, hazy injectors, coolant leak from the engine/trans adapters at the block off plate on the passenger side, as well as the coolant return on the oil cooler. When I put the truck up one the hoist and started doing a inspection, I found my brakes need replacement, E brakes cables, shoes, rear brake backing plates rusted out, upper ball joints where junk as well as the upper control arm bushings. So I ended up doing a whole truck service, replaced all the fluids, but ended up having to replace both rear calipers due to rusty and broken off bleeder screws.



Next up was the injectors, I ordered as set of SAC 45% from LDS and since I would need a retune, I decided to build a compounds at the same time. Ended up get a S488 from James and reused the current S369. Sadly I already had the injectors otherwise I would have gone with 100% instead, but maybe this will keep me from going wild and looking for 1000HP on a stock parts engine. When I started to build the turbo kit I found that I had a cracked exhaust manifold so when ahead and order AFE stock replacements manifolds to go with my ProFab tow flow up pipes. Also order a 2020 oil cooler to help cool the extra heat of the extra turbo. NOTE to anyone else putting a 2020 L5P oil cooler on and trying to use the rear oil gallery plug for a turbo oil feed you will need to use a 45 degree fitting or adapter to clear the oil cooler.



I finally got everything back together, surprisingly the truck runs very well with the SAC 45% injectors on the tune from my 30% along with the change from a 4 inch to a 5in intake. Its has never started so easy before, and the turbos spool way better than the S369 did even with a custom .83AR housing. I would like thank Levi from Turbo Performance for building me a custom hot pipe blanket getting in the mail in a day. Hoping to get to Danville on Monday for a tuning session.

Looks like you've been busy. Been working on loosing weight on mine. Doing fiberglass. Lots of fabrication. Loosing motivation with all the track days and events getting canceled.

Man that looks awesome! Tracks arent closed here, but you have to pre register for test and tune and only letting 50 vehicles in. Tech cards also increased by $60 as well.

That looks so good, I would love to gut a bunch of stuff to make it that clean, but not sure I would give up heat and AC.
