93 w250 reg cab, rebuilt 215 p-pump 24v h/o piston cummins engine with 370 marine camshaft, 7x11 injectors, 110  valve springs, bunch of pump goodies and 22* timing and 0.84 mild steel lines( had a set of stainless lines that were complete poop and would not seal up and dealing with warrenty, would not recommend poor quality)  backed up with a duel disk clutch and nv5600. Installed the HE351ve and the standalone 2.0 controller and went to play with it to find out the turbo has a bad actuator:( pulling turbo off and going back to old set up until I can buy a new actuator and also need to have machine work done for larger 67mm compressor wheel and 70mm turbin wheel that I have. Was looking to run truck on dyno next weekend but I guess no luck. Anyways if anyone is interested in my build I’m on YouTube lemmonAid cheap customs...shameless plug

It's good on the bottom end for more torque, could be I chose to run the h/o pistons from 02 vin7 engine... might back timing off to 18* for more friendly running. Also using a 6.7 aftermarket manifold made installing vgt much cleaner of a fit. Just finished fitting stuff up but having issues with the lil bb. So turbo is not being controlled and super laggy. Lucky truck is just a toy and not dd. Can spool the turbo with the vanes fully opened but takes a gental foot on to control smoke... currently in the process of wiring a bunch of 5v sensors with a cts2 to have all gauges in one screen....in all honesty I should of just swapped a 6.7 Cummins and bought efi live for what the project is turning into

I'm dealing with gremlins on my truck right now.. fuel gremlins this time... 5x16 injectors and one cylinder seems to be really weak, going to pop test them again and see if one is off... I'm looking at another truck and might put this one closer to stock-ish..

Sounds like you have a really sweet setup once you get it behaving!.. I have a '93 as well, but it's a slow truck.

Yes, still need to eventually get the turbo machined but want to start tuning it in stock configuration first. Eventually it will have a he551 non vgt, non wg turbo feeding it that I picked up from work off a cursor 12.9l off a quad track. It’s a 71/109 compressor wheel, haven’t measured the exhaust side yet

What did you set pop pressures at?? I’ve also experienced on some series of p/pumps a barrel will hairline crack internally  and cause lots of  weird running characteristics to eventually running on 5 cylinders

They're set to 285 bar for the 2nd gen 215 pump.. Pump was JUST benched at BD this winter... I set the first gen ones to 255 I think it was? My buddy put them in his and he says they run great.
