That would be the stock GM downpipe that is very restrictive.
Upgrading to a DiamondEye 4 inch, Turbo back exhaust will help that motor greatly..

Starter should be the same since 93.

If you have a rebuilder in the area, that is a good option.

Next item to be installed is the 4' from Leroy. Then a hx35 and a boost gauge. Then a carter lift pump. Pmd relocate is on the way now. Should get it in the mail today or tomorrow. Some folks are saying mount it behind bumper and others are saying on drivers fender well to keep out of the elements. Right now the waste gate is wired shut so I haven't been driving it. Not sure what kind of boost it's pushing so I don't wanna mess it up.
I do have a rebuilder in the next town. Taking it to him in the morning. Said it shouldn't be too bad to rebuild this one.
I do have that bracket. It was bolted to the starter but not to the block. I'll have to find a bolt that fits.

Take out the right front license plate bolt, and slide the included mount bolt through, into the heat sinc...

But BE SURE you have put silicone electrical sealant around the cable connection to the pmd.
Other than the plug, the elements wont bother the pmd.

Grab a screw driver with a rubber handle, turn on your key just like your about to crank it to start. Go to the passenger side front wheel well. Reach through and jump the starter with the screw driver. If it fires then the small (purple) on the starter coming from the key isn’t getting enough voltage through to the solenoid. 2 things I’ve seen done is
A:install a inline starter relay from a early 90s ford. This engine doesn’t have a starter relay.
B:wire a push button starter switch.

I have done both. Mine is set up push with a in line fuse. Fires every time. Rain sleet snow heat

Sounded like a dead battery sometimes. Maybe 3 or 4 times and she’d start. So I figure let’s check batteries alt and starter. All good. Let’s check grounds. All good. Well crap. Glad they’re good but what is the problem?? Ah! Let’s upgrade the battery cables. So I went 2/0 cables and #4 for alt wire. Still clicks like a dead battery sometimes. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
That often happens to my 6.2, usually when it is hot, it was always worn out brushes, but a wack to the starter would move the brushes enough to get it to start.

Well after the rebuilder told me his price I decided to go with a new starter. Installed it this morning and been running some errands. So far no problem. Thank ya all for your responses.

New acdelco starter, quality batteries and cables, and good glow plugs, these motors start instantly.

Any part not great above, and this truck EATS starters...
