Yep, that'll be fine.. I was thinking of getting something similar so I can read the ABS ring on the rearend for vehicle speed.

Hibernating... but not giving up...

Not much work on the controller lately, life just takes over sometimes, BUT there is progress on the mechanical side. The turbo install kit is finally complete and ready to ship!!!  Really nice work, I"m pretty impressed with it. He's going to offer them as a build-to-order kit in the future so maybe more 6.5Ls will be getting the same treatment as mine.

looks good.. are intercoolers an option you can add though?

Not really. The problem with these trucks is that there is no room for an air-to-air IC in the front. Between the radiator, AC condenser, and oil/trans coolers, there's no room. A water-to-air IC is possible, but I'm not interested in that right now. If I do anything, I'll add water-meth injection, run by the controller. Also, I'm only going to allow 15-16 PSI max so an IC isn't really needed.

If you get creative a little . There's room for a IC and condenser if you want.  2 Gen Cummins fits nicely around the stock GM radiator.

I'd like to maintain the AC condenser, as well as oil and trans fluid coolers. You know how these 6.5L's like to run hot.

you could always get an aftermarket trans cooler and relocate it.. AC condenser is harder to do of course.

I’m actually thinking water meth injection. A bank of relays should make it easy to do off of the main processor.

I went ahead and grabbed one of the Sparkfun Pro Mini boards with the integrated CAN. Getting ready to connect to the display and debug/load the LCD program.

I think I’m going to scale back a little to help reduce roadblocks. I’m going to hold off on drive and fuel pressure gauges for now. I’ll move forward with boost and EGT though.

as long as your board has the IO's to add it later it's easy.

for relays, I'd probably go with transistors to control them rather than relays.. way faster acting.

MOSFETs seem a lot cleaner to use also, smaller footprint. I’m only planning on driving a pump and one or two solenoids. The only reason for two solenoids was so I could have variable flow control. Say I use 3 and 5 gal/hr nozzles. I could have 3, 5, or 8 gal/hr output of the system, giving a range of usable situations, not just all or nothing.

I've thought about using pretty much exactly the same nozzle setup.
Perhaps have a relay for the pump (probably turn it on at a set boost and a bit before your nozzles), then cycle nozzles accordingly.

Exactly. I was thinking about enabling the spray under high EGT conditions also.

I haven't started on that part yet, but I'd think maybe over 20PSI boost you run the small nozzle, then cycle the big nozzle according to EGT needs..

My buddy just tore down his 6.5.. water in the oil.. probably cracked block, apparently his year likes to crack by the #8 oil squirter jet, has an older mechanical engine he'll put in the truck
