    Craigslist Finds

    I saw that. I was thinking there is nothing left to take. He just wants someone to clean his yard for him.

    I figured it would be a 63/68/14. That is the ONLY single turbo I would run... If i had the big Boeing Dollars!😁

    What turbo did you end up with Paul? 63mm?

    Work with a lazy guy and he will always find the easy way to do everything. I am the lazy guy in my team of one.🤣

    Yup! That’s a nasty one. My Wife would be so mad at the amount of stuff I would be running through the dishwasher if that were mine.🤣🤣🤣

    Builing a compound set up

    I dig it. I’m with Cliff that the HE351 isn’t the best turbo to use, but you never know till you try. Can’t wait to see how the set up does.

    Fuel milage not as good as hoped

    Of course a lot of my driving these days is above 55mph. Could have something to do with that. Even in Marysville I was seeing 45 mpg s commuting to Seattle for Holland America. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Fuel milage not as good as hoped

    On average that car will get 100 miles on the odometer before the fuel gauge even starts to move. After that it averaged 100 miles per 1/8 tank mark down to about 1/3 tank then it will start to drop fast. I am not exaggerating the mileage at all. It was something I watched very close.y for the last 10 years. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Fuel milage not as good as hoped

    The tank vent check valve was gutted years ago. It does pretty good on a normal fill up. 12 gallons is pretty close. Most times I would get somewhere around 14 on a fill up. It might be winter blend(#1 diesel) but that still seems low to me. I would try getting fuel at another station next. Maybe your getting scammed by a dishonest fuel station? Also, that car loves to be driven hard. I always have. I shift above 3000 rpm always. A lot of people say to keep the RPM’s below 2000 for good mileage. These are the people that don’t understand turbo charger efficiency... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Fuel milage not as good as hoped

    Something is seriously wrong. I reset the trip odometer on that car for every tank of fuel for the last 2 years. It consistently got 650-700 miles to a tank without trying. 400 miles to a tank is a huge red flag to me. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Operation Enterprise has begun

    There was never a doubt in my mind she wouldn't run perfectly. Aren't you glad I was there to help you with that one plug now! Now I get credit for helping! LMAO! Great job Hoss. That was a lot of work. Now get cracking on those heated seats!😂

    Does anyone use the aftermarket sensors

    Over the years i have used Napa brand Sensors as well as BWD from Orielly's. I can't recall having any issues except one. The crankshaft position sensor for a Ford 7.3L Powerstroke. From that point on i will only buy the International (grey) sensor. Even the Motorcraft version (blue) didn't work right. I will also only buy the Timbo apps as posted above. Those are the only 2 exceptions I can think of. Otherwise I haven't had an issue and it has been may different types of sensors over the years.
