    • Last night I had talked to my V dub buddy becuase I couldn't remember the name of the valve and this is what he sent me when I told hime what your application was:
      If he's only running a 10 pounds of boost for turbo kit it's better to run a diverter valve to keep the turbo spooling. Better be safe than sorry just run a forge diverter valve if he's running low boost. , the double o7 model comes with a spring kit each bring has different tension to adjust for the amount u booster want to run. The spring rates are 6 8 10 12 psi if I remember correctly.

      • This is so awesome! Way to get on it! You have a few weeks to iron out bugs, get it together and start daily driving it so that you know it's ready for the trip to NY!

            The ECU had to go back to Megasquirt. For whatever reason the IAC circuit fried. They requested that I send the IAC along with it so they can be sure this doesn't happen again. I must be one of the first people to use the system on a 4.0 Jeep setup

              • Glad to hear they are handling the IAC issue. Hopefully this gets worked out fast.

                    • i agree!

                      I am getting the nose on-- just have to modify the chrome grille overlay and get the lights in.

                      I hit a sang with the power steering fluid cooler-- it is cracked and leaking, so I had to remove it and order a new one. I'll have it Monday-- gotta love Amazon Prime!

                      DIY has my computer-- should see it early next week. i am anxious to get back to tuning the engine. THe slver lining is that with the engine down, I have been able to focus on paint & assembly details. Got the tailgate and some other little stuff back on lastnight.

                      After a 2AM craiglist night, a 2 hour tour of the junkyard, and another few hours today on Ebay, Amazon, Summit, and Jegs, I finally have a set of rims on the way-- 17 x 8 Dodge 3500 rims. Gonna do rick rings and inner beadlocks on them. Badda-bling! :) Krawlers will be mounted in time for BLB! (minus the beadlocks & rings)

                      • Very nice! So are you going to drive up to BLB on them, or strap them to the roof of the pop up and change 'em at the camp ground redneck pit crew-style? :lol:
