Question, could this piece be tig welded back on? I couldn't figure out for the life of me how to get the parking brake spring back on last year when the tranny was rebuilt and ended up breaking the tab off😡. It's cast aluminum so i doubt it. I cant find another housing dor the life of me.

if you can't weld that tab on, you could fab up a steel bracket for the spring to go against/on, that either bolts to the housing using the existing bolts a couple inches away (probably need slightly long bolts) or via a new hole in the housing just below where the tab broke off...

I would recommend to anyone putting a new ds4 pump on to apply dielectric grease to your electrical connections. that seemed to cure my truck. Fires right up and sounds healthy now. Im interested in getting a tune for this thing. Who would yall reccomend?

Going to have to cut and add another piece of silicone to the plenum as you can see... Not much wiggle room for any kind of wastegate actuator. I really want to keep my s and b intake so its gonna be super tight.

Idk if this has the sought after larger housing or not. I understand there are 2 different sizes.

piddled with the truck this afternoon. I have to get another turbo oil supply line made. Leaks from the fitting on engine when warm. Even with petrol grade thread tape.
Also leaking fuel in the valley so im fairly certain i have a line loose. I looked at the return line connections but they looked dry. i was hoping to drive the damn thing this evening but back to the parts store and back off with the intake again.
