Got the charge pipe and hot pipe done today as well, welded in a 1/8 NPT bung for secondary boost pressure. No picture of the finished charge pipe though, I got into a hurry to get it off and headed to powercoating in the morning. Did the first fitting on the hood stack elbow as well. Kind of nice to see it coming together finally

Little interior action, both boost gauges and Pyro on the left, tach on the column, fuel pressure, oil pressure, coolant temp, and drive pressure up top

Time for an update, through a serious of unfortunate events and still not entirely sure of the cause, I lost all oil pressure. So fast forward to now and lots of exciting things have been going on, harvest went extremely well and and I've got lots of parts on the way for this new engine. Its been far too long sense I have gotten to take this old girl for a cruise. Stay tuned for pictures and updates along the way!

Well that sucks. Did you ever find out what caused the Loss of oil pressure?

Yeah its a bad deal. I really wanted to get a built auto swapped in before building the engine but oh well. Gonna have a hard runner when I get her done. Really hope I've got enough air down low to take advantage of these new 5x18s.

Thank you sir for the good luck wishes, the same to you. Your triples build has had me drooling.

Im gonna find that out this week. Haven't gotten to work on it hardly at all for the past few months. Plan is to get the engine out, disassembled, and off to the machine shop this week.

All my trouble here was caused by a timing case bolt backing out. Broke off the oil pump idler. Everything surprisingly didn't get destroyed, so got it shut down in time. But that brings us to now. I'm starting to aquire a pile of parts (much to my girlfriend'so delight) that has taken over my living room. I'm pushing hard to get the truck together and making passes as soon as possible. Tommorrow I'm headead to pick up my new built to the hilt 47rh

Here's a little teaser

I have a box just like that. Word on the street is its best to have 20-40 thou machined off each side of the cap for proper oil drainage.

Also how did you mount the t4-t3 spacer so it worked the way you wanted, and not the way they're normally intended to?

Im excited to put them to work, hmm i'll tell my machinist that!

So the t4-t3 spacer is just in there so someday i'll be able to step up to a t4 secondary a few adjustments to the piping and brace and i'm golden, I had a feeling when I ordered my steedspeed that my need for speed may escalate. It's a stainless diesel one.
