Looking at the engine pic, I see that you have the fluid motor mounts. How's the vibration in the truck?

its really not bad when running, fells about like my 6cyl ones. i do plan on adding a fluidamper down the road, also will check idle speed w laser tach once its all back together. it feels like it idles a lil low.

Got new rad mounted along with intercooler. Upper and lower are still not ideal, couldn’t find right bends and sizes. Ended up with a 90deg elbow on lower and just a coupler and reducer on the upper. The non removable sections were done with gates power grip clamps.

Hydroboost is on and plumbed. Re using the janky homemade brake lines for now. Just cut off and swapped fittings at master and bubble flared. Not pictured but there is a p/s cooler plumbed in now behind the grill.

Removed exhaust to knock out a freeze plug to add heater...and now will be making new downpipe. Noticed soot on the v band clamp, was hoping just a porous weld. Ended up being wrong size v band and what looks like burnt silicone.

Also made a new turbo oil feed line. Old was was 4ft long and kinked

Got exhaust done and mounted, 4in downpipe reduced down to 3in the rest of the way to a 5in tip. Spent $45 on a walker tailpipe kit and $25 for a muffler, the rest is repurposed. Was straight pipe dumped under the bed before this. Hope it sounds decent!
