GMC came home today

ALso i found out today i have NO back brakes at all. so that, power locks, heck just locks in general, and alingnment all need to be fixed. and i think i have a bent rim [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] im begining to think i got screwed oh well. the way i figure by august the motor will blow up, ill get the motor from my other deisel and drop that in. then i can quite messing with all that other turbo charger crap.

Re: GMC came home today

my buddy, Joe's dad had a '84 military 1.25 ton chevy truck he is building. I don't know alot about diesels but I think he took the stock 6.3 and punched it to a 6.5 and got one of them spiffy banks turbo kits for it. Should be awesome. Maybe a thought... but that turbo cost about $2000 I think

Re: GMC came home today

Drey, I'm not to sure whats providing the head to push the water thru the turbo, but it might make more sense for you to run the turbo cooling water thru its own rad; like an aux. tranny cooler... heat is a turbo's worse enemy...

Just a thought bud...
