Okay, in our test run Jeff stated that we have some smoke under hard acceleration from a stop. We never pushed it really hard yesterday, and the highest boost we got was just over 5psi. Was not able to get a good read on the drive-pressure (we are testing a Garrett GT3271G), but that will be forthcoming. First off though is a new air filter. We have had good luck with the AEM filters (Dry-flow), as our BHAF, and the Blazer are both running them(maybe AFE). So after doing some searching through our DieselPlace supporting vendors (XDP ships with UPS....no good for us), we gave Dane a call at MadJackDieselPerformance. As per usual, the call was lots of fun and Dane came through with a competitive price and ships to us in Canada with USPS. We tried to get the free shipping that he offers to all you guys/gals in the states, but no go....LOL.

This is the direct replacement air filter for the K47 airbox, washable and re-usable. Total cost with shipping comes in just over the price here of 2 ACDelco's, so it is a good investment.

Also.......we get more decals from Dane (his decal is in the back window already)......

well, had the truck out now for a few spins, both on secondary roads, and main highway runs, it runs and drives real nice so far, trans/ T-case all works like it should (finally swapped to the custom pan with drain, and fresh filter/fluid, and connected to the external tranny cooler) cruises along at 90-95 KM/Hr. at around 1900RPM, with 3 psi boost, 5psi drive pressure, and right around 425 EGT.... from a dead stop, mashing the go pedal no longer produces smoke after tightening the wastegate, it just flat out goes, can see 12 PSI WOT, and all this before 2500RPM, normal driving it spools to around 6 psi by 1800 RPM, so nice power down low... it "feels" as quick, or quicker than any stock DS4 equipped truck we have ever driven, with a OEM spec .290" IP........ should net decent fuel mileage and economy, if i can keep my foot out of the fun pedal...LOL....

some pics of truck how it sits this AM.......J&J

we have several pesky leaks to deal with, one is the drivers side output on the front diff, another one is a tranny fluid leak, from the inspection cover(input seal), rear pinion seal sprays a fair bit, and the drivers valve cover is leaking at the rear, due to me trying a test with just "right stuff", without a gasket...LOL....J&J.

yeah....for sure we were separated at birth

made our first long distance road trip with mumbo, few minor things to iron out, still issues with the power steering, but not a surprise, just swapped one used pump, for another that was just shimmed for more pressure.... a few small electrical gremlins, and a bit of IP calibration...

otherwise a trouble free trip, the truck rides real smooth, steers positive, and is actually quite peppy, while being economical... the turbo turns out to work great, cruises along at 60MPH with 2-4psi boost, and 450 EGT's; almost from a stop it will build an instant 10 psi boost, no smoke at all and we have not seen over 600EGT as of yet...... theres probably other things to add, and will be as they are remembered...LOL.....J&J.
