THANKS IDAHOCTD.

Have fun and keep us posted.
Will do, I am waiting outside for UPS with a impact in one hand and Corona in the other. I have SEVERAL pictures, but dial up is horrible. It's nice to supervise my uncles and brothers work.:) Just gotta keep them coronas cold. We are supposed to get some really bad weather, but that won't stop us(no garage or carport) We have tarps and a big tent so we are prepared.

My passenger side fog light is broke all to he**, so I took it off and that would be a perfect place for some type of cold air intake to bring in cold air to the filter. The stock airbox is almost perfect for this.

Again I have to thank Nathan and Rob for all thier help. Thanks guys.


Now.................what's my next mod?:rolleyes:

Tough Call.


Look at it this way. When on the pipe, and wailin' you have both at once!

That's how I want to go, Foot to the floor, clear roads ahead, 403 Cubic Inches of unfettered power, Both Turbos howling to the wind and shrieking their defiance for the whole world to enjoy Boost Gauges pegging the needle, Leaving behind nothing more than a concussive shockwave and the heady aroma of #2 Diesel.

:ro)

instead of paying Summit $125 plus shipping for a battery relocate kit, I bought a weatherproof battery box at walmart, 15' of wire,splice kits,and wire loom at Lowe's.All for a total of less than $50. I think I'm gonna mount like the pic in ZR1160'S garage,using the old battery mounting plate.

chased UPS down today and got the rest of the parts. Broke my banjo bolt and the plastic intake where the freeze plugs go, fixed it and Nathan is sending me a new banjo bolt. After all is done, will have taken me and help of brother and uncle a total of 2 days. Battery is already relocated. Hardest part was tapping the oil pan, what a pain. Things sure are a REALLY tight fit, Nathan had to have spent a lot of time getting things just right. A BIG thanks to Nathan. We've been working outside in 26* weather and light rain. I feel like I have pneumonia. Talk about hard core diesel freak? I've got some great pics I will post when I get time, dial up is horrible for uploading pics. Thanks to IdahoRob for his help as well. :ro)

Finished up yesterday, had a small oil leak on one of the fittings. Fixed it and drove easy for the first 100 miles. WOW...........WOW.......WOW!!! The sound is out of this world, unbelievable. I can't get on it because it is raining and really wet, but I did just a lil bit anyway and the tires just spin away. I can't wait till it is dry. I can tell a HUGE difference in power gain.:ro) :ro) :ro)
