I try too.. sitting on the couch all day long doing nothing is something that makes me scratch at my skin like a junkie.. i can work for maybe 10min max before the leg feels like fire. Milder hobbies.?? maybe when i have kids.... paragliding is mild as it gets for me. I prefer extra spicy. (wingsuit basejump)...

Sorry to hear about your accident. I tend to hurt myself once or twice a year it seems like. Just part of living the life you love. Your ride is looking good. I haven't seen an engine with every piece shined up so meticulously in anything other than car shows.

I removed the air box as well in our E350 Elfie, It seems to be a little bit louder. Yours is a 2002 , Do you still have the fuel bowl and mechanical pump in the valley?

Like your door cabinets, Aluminum is nice stuff. looks great.
Hope you heal up well, be careful you do not get hurt worse, Your rig will be of no use to you if something real serious happens.

Good luck

Thanks man, did you notice any other difference besides just the noise.? It is a 2002 the fuel bowl is in the valley but the fuel pump is underneath the cab chassis mounted.

great song, thanks. i left the air filter in place, just a little more rumble. hard to pin point it. no other side effects. I took a cap from a 55 gallon drum.
it has a lip so it cannot get sucked thru into the intake.

wow!! hope for a speedy recovery so you can get back out and jump again!!

so yours is likle mine.. with the crank case vent going into the intake.. to me it seems like a dumb design because any oil in your blow-by draft ends up in the turbo.. at least thats how mine is plumbed in... (mine was aftermarket).. or is that a different tube going into there?
