1998 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4x4/6.5 Turbo Diesel
Hey guys I'm new on this forum so hope I'm posting in the correct place. Anyways I recently just had a 1998 2500 4x4 Silverado with a 6.5 fall into my lap by way of my grandfather giving it to me as a wedding present lol. It's in really great shape all around and he has replaced alot of things on it so far since he has owned it. The engine is stock with 194k on the clock. It was owned by a friend of his who purchased it new and never abused it so it's in relatively great shape. Hardly any scratches or dents as well. My grandfather has replaced the Injection pump, lift pump, oil pressure sensor, glow plug solenoid as well as new PMD with harness which has been relocated to behind the front bumper. The truck has sat a little over a year since the last time he drove it to Alabama from North Florida to go deer Hunting. The engine will fire but dies out after about 30secs to a min of running. Maybe the time of it sitting has clogged up something in the tank not too sure but I'm picking it up next weekend and taking it to a friend's diesel shop here in South Florida for him to get it up and running. Anyways besides all of that I was wondering what I could do with this engine to improve the performance and sound. Im not looking to have a coal rolling race truck just something I can daily drive and has a little better sound and performance. For right now I am thinking about keeping the turbo stock just because I'm sort of on a budget at the moment but with a stock turbo what else could I change or mod to get a little better power and sound out of it would like to hear the turbo whistle some more. Thanks for any and all insight, Ronnie...
