We are going to be documenting our progress as we convert this beast into our awesomeness RV!

What makes you think it is an 8.3L? The VIN says it is a 5.9L, but to tell the truth I don't know enough to know the difference.

In the picture it says 24 valve. That's the 8.3. Now see how the valve cover is notched one side and flat on the other? The flat side indicates electronic. Most everything is after 1998
Rameses taught me that.
