I'm curious about the difference in lag with the larger compressor wheel. Should see a decent gain as long as you've got fuel to match the air flow.

Removing the tank filters & addimg new fuel pressure spri g i think is enough i dont feel like spend $600 on aftermarket fuel pump.
I deffinetly lost some bottom tourqe but top speed is outstanding.

I was more talking about the tune than supply from the lift pump.

Whats new.?
I have not had time to build latly got a new career doing commercial hvac so i been busy working.
I finallly got my A/c unit. It is a coleman mach 8 9.2kbtu unit. It is a alot bigger than i anticipated & i feel really terible cause i told the delivery driver to load in in the rear of the bus when i wasent home & it is not light...
I finally got my fridge mounted in place along side my hot water heater. & the space in between the fridge & partinioning wall will be a closet for clothes to hang up so its actually working out nicely so far.















Next large purchases than i will be done are generator & rims & tires.

Ive been off here for a while now and not working on my own project, but i remember seeing and subscribing when you first started this thread. Im glad I saw it again and just poured thru the whole thing! Thank you so much for all your documentation and the inspiration you have given me!

Who's fenders are the white ones you are running now? I didnt see a name mentioned. Are they the Advanced Fiberglass Concepts, also sold by WeldTec? Ive been considering these for mine, I dont need them, but they sure do look good!

Your turbo up pipes... were they cheap ebay units or the much higher priced versions? If the cheap ones, have they lasted well?

low594- Thanks, im glad you enjoyed my thread i tried to do best as possible on documenting, i lost motivation on building it for while, but a new lady in my life has brought it back, so i will be updating shortly on the new progress updates.
The fiberglass fenders i purchessd threw advanced fiber... but their customer service is garbage. If they tell you 1 month for them to be ready they really mean 2 months.... but i love mine, they were expensive but it will tie in the overall project very nicely when im done.
The up pipes were not the cheap ebay ones, they were the bellowed up pipes..... But honestly a waste of money if anything just have someone sand blast & ceramic coat the ones you have unless their cracked. The best thing you can do in that area is just remove the exhaust back pressure valve.
Cheers,....
