My new VGT code seems to work, though I havne't had the truck insured so I haven't really put it through it's paces..

Working on a transmission lockup/OD box.. OD in my first gen has been acting all goofy, I'll see how it works out... trying to print my own board with toner transfer has caused me to lose a lot of hair and sanity!.. It looks like total garbage but I think it'll be good enough for a test run.

Well, I can't remember if I've mentioned it before.. THe Bosch H1000 pump.. with electronic fuel and timing racks... one just came up for sale.. rare as hens teeth.. I'm sooooo tempted!

Just put an 60/67mm HE351CW on my first gen, going to try it out today... see how it does.. seems to spool real fast!

You'd be the guy to do the H1000  8)

So I've driven the first gen a bit with the HE351CW... it's an AWESOME turbo.. spools nearly instantly, pushes 45PSI, and I'm getting considerably better fuel mileage than I was getting with the 60/64/12 HX35/40 hybrid..  I used the same billet compressor wheel in both, so it all comes down to the exhaust side
Buddy tried the 9cm from an HY35 which looks really similar, but it's not sounding like that's performing all that great, would be good for a truck with closer to stock fuel though.

Here's a little vid for the sound.. sure responsive

I think I'm going to build this onto a 24V engine.. I just picked up some stainless Shied .120 24V p pump lines... they ought to do the trick

well, the rad in my first gen packed it in on me, while waiting on another one I had to put the dually back on the road.. it had the stock VGT on it.. was was coming up to overspeeding it at just 30-35 PSI boost and it was running out of air pretty quick.. for shits and giggles i'm just swapping the cold side to the 67mm because I"m lazy and that's easy to do, and I'll see if that helps a lot.. goign to bump the timing a bit too, try and reduce my haze at idle

Stock VGT was driving nice though, didn't complain about making 15PSI at 1200 RPM though it was a bit smoky down there.. giving it an oil change as well  while I'm at it

Well, Dad got another first gen, 5 speed, 90,000 miles, but rough miles.. I had to go over a mountain pass to get it, 5 miles of 17% grade with the trailer on taxed the dually's cooling system even at 40F... I was running like 25PSI boost the whole way up, 2nd gear.. I forgot I had an empty oil bottle by the coolant reservoir... Let me tell you how hot the turbo "cold side" discharge gets.. it gets hot enough to melt plastic!


I put a downpayment on a 1500 gasser first gen, XCSB 2wd, really nice shape.. I might put a 4BT into it, I think that would be a sweet little summer truck

Well, I finally got the biggest part of my H pump build in my hands... Now for the brainiac parts!

I got some Shied Diesel stainless  .120" P pump 24V injector lines, some Mahle 24V pistons, and the icing on the cake, I'm going to try the chinesium head studs... I got two sets, they seem alright by looking at them, and for $100/set delivered.. I'll give them a shot.. gotta be better than stock head bolts.

I got some datasheets for the H pump, and from my reading it's capable of 350 bar injection pressure, so I might not have to go with monster (expensive) 24V nozzles...

I do still have to find an atmospheric turbo I like, I'd like an S480 with a single scroll housing.. still debating if I want to do a HE351VE or the 351CW... would be nice to have engine brake.

On the transmission side, for now I have a single disc billet stock stall converter and a mild build 47RH... but I'm trading an old NV4500 for a 47RE that has a billet input with like 40K miles, it lost 2nd gear, so I'm thinking it broke the band strut... I'll steal the billet input from it.

Otherwise, it's calving time here again, got 3 bouncing baby boys
