Default Project Second Strike-----my REDEMPTION build

Alright people I've finally done it. Found what i believe is the perfect truck to fill my need for a shorty 250. Bought it from an upstanding member on here...Billet Garage. Trust me when I say he is a man of his word, may explain that later.

I agree. If it had been 4WD I would have bought it myself a long time ago.

Nevermind. Found them and ordered a set. If I like them mounted up, I'm going to order a couple more sets - one for my old man's pickup and another for my dually.

Thanks for the offer, but I already ordered and should be here tomorrow.

How well do they hold up? I've anxious to try them out.

I installed the oem fog light kit today. I guess I'll have to go by the dealer to have the fog function enabled to make them work??

Should be able to do it with forscan. I assume you already installed the correct switch?

Went by the dealer this morning and it wouldn't work. He tried to enable the fog light function and it kept saying this function no supported on this module. He did a reprogram and clicked that the truck had fogs and it still wouldn't turn them on. Said hes gonna do some research on it.

Can you bypass the trucks factory wiring (using a relay) and still use the factory switch?

Gonna give the tech and the forum a couple days to see what comes about from members having done this. That relay is my next move. Just use a wire out of the switch as the trigger wire. Who knows.

Nice!

Hope you're planning on some motor and trans upgrades. That's a 650whp setup on stock fuel. Gonna be rowdy in that little truck :

Got it back on the road today. Wow there is a pretty noticeable gain in power. Heres what I did.... ARP studs, new OEM head gaskets, 6.0 manifolds, hi flow up pipes , updated harness, new fuel lines, new oil cooler, new rocker sets, new push rods, 59/72 turbos, checked the front cover, ELC coolant, new top and bottom radiator hoses, new belts, pulley and all needed gaskets and seals. O yea and replaced the body mount bushings. Seems to have more grunt down low and spools up nice. Absolutely love it. Seems like there is something I forgot to list, I'll check my list later. The front cover was in great shape so maybe it has been replaced at some point. Had the heads checked and surfaced. Went on a hour ride today and the deltas never got more than 4 degrees running 70 mph in about 85 degree weather.

Default Pump or not

I know this is a hard question to answer but should i add a lift pump and if so which one...fass or air dog?? If nothing else but for clean fuel. I did the fass on my 6.0 when i had it and it was toooo loud so i removed it and sold it. From what i read both companies have came a long way since then as far as noise. Aren't these pumps used in conjunction w the hfcm on the frame ? Let me know what if any advice. Thanks in advance

I would skip both companies mentioned. Spotty reliability at best. Either dual stockers or fuelab.

I run Marty's setup on mine and it hasn't missed a beat. Maintains 62psi at all times, all conditions.

How much are the door sill entry guards? You can PM me if needed. For a crew cab.

They aren't terrible. I installed a set on an 04 cc this past spring and I was pleased with the fit and finish. Matched the 99-07 perfectly. I'm going to order another 2 sets for my 08 and my Dad's 10. I got them through Summit Racing.

Ok people its time for new wheels. Ive narrowed it to the Fuel Maverick black and milled or the Ballistic Razorback. Cant decide on width/offset. I want the wheel to finish flush with the fender of the truck above the wheel or maybe out a half an inch at most. That way just the bulge of the sidewall is hanging out or a little tread. Will the 20x10 w -12 put me where i want to be or do I need the 20x9 and I think they are a 0 offset. Ive found a few pics online but no good shots of how far the stuff hangs out. Thanks in advance and any pics will be appreciated.

Heck I may even like a wide wheel tucked under the truck but all of the wide wheels are offset for the lifted trucks. Talked to a company about making some one offs and he hit me around $4500. I almost passed out. But he said no one would have the same wheels....lol

mavericks look nicer and a 20 x 9 0 offset will put the tire flush with the fender. 10 wide -12 offset will stick it out about an inch.

What do you plan on doing with the widened rear wheels?

I bought a BD tap shifter and got it installed this afternoon. Really nice kit they put together. Install went smooth and now I can shift as I see fit. It has a seven pre programmed shifting options which is pretty cool. So while I was under the truck doing the wiring I seen the tail shaft seal leaking so I guess thats whats on for tomorrow afternoon. Either paint or wheels are next. More to come.

I haven't fully decided yet. If not white it will be some shade of silver. Not a dark grey or a bright silver something in the middle w plenty of pearl/flake in it.

I'll give him a shout and see what he suggests. I'm a dealer for a few diesel supply houses but I really want a great product and tech help if needed.

They arent real hard at all. Depending on how youre doing it, i agree with c2tuck. If you have access to a lift, i would say if hes charging you anything over 100-150, id do it myself. If youre doimg it on your back in your driveway, that number would probably double. I think the hardest part about on your back in the driveway is getting the trans out from under the truck, and the new one back in.

The local trans shop said4-500 to do the swap. I do have a lift and can get my hands on a trans jack. From what I have see it looks like getting the converter in place and bolted is the hardest part. Do i put fluid in the converter first? Thanks for the replies.

yes partially fill the converter. Make sure it is seated properly before getting the trans under the truck.

Me personally, Iíd pay 4-500 to have it installed. Not saying I couldnít, but the time saved and if something goes wrong with installation itís on him not you.

Iíve done them before on gas trucks on my back in a drive way and it sucked. At least you have a lift.

Alright guys tomorrow is the big day. I'm gonna put this transmission in ....or at least attempt to lol. I've got my fluid, trans jack, truck lift, new ground straps and hopefully all needed tools. Anybody got any last minute pointers to make this roll smoothly. Any help is appreciated. The converter came in the trans w fluid in it. I read thru the install sheet that came w it and it seems pretty straight forward. Thanks in advance

Yours is a breeze because it's 2wd. Make double and triple sure the converter is seated properly on the pump gear before assembly or you will be pulling it out again. Bolt the case up and pull the converter to the flex plate with the bolts.

Prior to pulling the converter to the flex plate like sootie said, grab a stud and make sure the converter can turn. It has enough play to thunk thunk against the hole in the flex plate. That will ensure it is not bound up, like not fully seated in the pump. Also, do not pull the case to the engine using power tools. If it doesnt slide together smoothly at first, use something you cant put too much torque on to walk the trans to the motor. Sometimes the dowels are a bitch, but if you force it you can break the trans case, crush the pump, etc. Just go easy and it should be good. I use my 1/4in screw gun with the clutch set on 3...

The converter came installed and the builder said it was ready to be bolted in. I cant get my fingers behind the converter. The install sheet gave a measurement from the face of the bell housing and its there. The converter has 8 grade 8 bolts loosely in it ...I guess these are used to attach to the flex plate at 30 ft/lbs. Do I use lock tite?

Should I remove the purple paint off the converter where it fits in the back of he motor? Are the tolerances that tight? And I guess clean the dowels too. Good idea w the small impact driver

Don't worry about the paint, emery cloth on the dowels sometimes helps if they are rough looking

The dipstick tube has 1 10mm nut holding it to the rh valve cover. The o ring will go on the tube, i usually dont unbolt them, just kinda tetris it in.

OK guys I have killed my truck. Got the transmission installed and it went pretty straight forward. Got it all buttoned up, extra ground wires installed w the new trans. put the fluid in and NO CRANK. Turn the key and nothin. The security light is blinking, odometer is just dashes. I had the batteries disconnected like the install sheet said during the install . Well then I hooked my sct to it and it wouldn't communicate. It said ERROR. Any ideas or help would be awesome. I was so looking forward to getting to drive w the new trans cause I've been sorta pampering it for a couple months trying not to totally destroy the stock unit.

To confirm, you did nothing to the truck other than swap the trans and disconnect the batteries?

Sounds like a pats issue. With the truck in park, turn the ignition to the run position. Open the hood and find the small bullet connector on the passenger side positive cable(brown wire iirc). Separate the connection and touch the side that runs down towards the engine, to the positive post on the battery. That should crank the engine over. If it resets the pats, the engine will start.


PS do it at your own risk, I'm not sure why your odometer is showing dashes, thatight be an indication of something else that I'm not aware of.


Also make sure the transmission wiring harness is seated correctly.

Yes thats all I did besides adding the new ground wires. I will check the bolt in harness on the passenger side of the trans tomorrow just to confirm its nice and snug. Then I will try what you said w the bullet connector. This is just crazy Thanks again SOOTIE

Did you take any of the smaller wires off the battery cables? Make sjre they are all reinstalled. And double check that the pcm connector is fully seated. A lot of times the cknnector is broken, and when the motor tilts back when the trans is removed, it couldve tugged it a little bit, and maybe its not making a good connection.

Wierd that it wouldn't crank that way. That wire is the trigger on the stater solenoid. How much battery voltage do you have?

sorry...this did turn the engine over but no start. I have noticed that the fuel pump isnt on either. when I turn the key on I hear a couple things happen but not the normal clicking and buzzing things going on.

Sounds like a pats issue. With the truck in park, turn the ignition to the run position. Open the hood and find the small bullet connector on the passenger side positive cable(brown wire iirc). Separate the connection and touch the side that runs down towards the engine, to the positive post on the battery. That should crank the engine over. If it resets the pats, the engine will start.


PS do it at your own risk, I'm not sure why your odometer is showing dashes, thatight be an indication of something else that I'm not aware of.


Also make sure the transmission wiring harness is seated correctly.
One thing I did do when I disconnected the batteries was to put the positive and neg cables together w a zip tie per the builder instruction. they stayed this way for the 5 hour job. Do you think i wiped out the ecm or fried it?

Sootie I may take you up on that. I've got it on my trailer and off to the local dealer in the morning. I have a good relationship w them because of my truck accessory business, do almost daily business with them. So I guess I will know more in the morning. I had SCT try a reboot tune and that didnt do anything different. Its just locked out all communication from what I can guess.

Update....It was sorta my fault with not being able to flash back to stock. I had installed the BD diesel tap shifter and it came w a pass thru cable for the obd port. It clearly stated in the installation sheet NOT to tune or run diagnostics thru this port. It would support my edge insight but thats it. So I had it hidden up behind the dash and forgot about it, and thats why my truck wouldnt allow me to communicate w the ecm. Anyway, I unplugged everything and the truck accepted my tune. To my surprise the truck started.

And now my new problem...when the truck started , the gear indicator showed it to be in park which it was, but the other indicators would randomly flicker. no particular sequence. When it flickered the R light , the reverse lights would flicker too. CRAZY

Tried to drive it and as soon as it shifted to second it just stumbled bad....the gear indicators were blinking and I turned right back around and pulled back into my shop. Has anyone ever experienced this??? Thanks in advance

I have triple checked all three connections on the trans and even cleaned them and snapped together again. The grounds are new. The new trans had new sensors. Should I take my old sensors and put them in this new one?? After I attempted to drive it I pulled the code p174E...

This is crazy, all I wanted was a new transmission

Are you sure the shift linkage is adjusted properly?

get rid of the tap shifter completely. A: there is absolutely no need for them on a compounded 6.4 B: they are more hassle than they are worth.

All i did was snap the linkage off the old unit and push it back on the new one. Is there an adjustment process? Looked to be spring loaded and maybe self adjusted initially.

From what I'm finding its pointing to the range sensor. Builder said he has never heard of one of these failing immediately. Hasnt really done many replacements on the stock units just in for repair. How does the fan harness relate to trans issues.

If you still have the range sensor from your old trans try swapping it to the new trans. I have seen non OEM electronics cause some strange problems.
Also on the drivers side inner wheel well there are three connectors, make sure they are snapped together good.

Thank u sir. Gonna try that and get it scanned today to see what's up. I believe it's the range sensor but from what I read they don't go out a lot.

Your range sensor connector locking tab isnt broken, is it? Or the weather pack didnt stay in the old trans, lose the pin lock piece of plastic, or pull on the wires to disconnect it from the old trans? Seen quite a few pin fit/broken wires right at the connector. Havent seen really any range sensors on a 5r have issues.

I only disconnected three harnesses. One above/near the shifter arm...one at rear top....and the bolt in harness on right side. I guess I'm gonna drop the pan and visually check the range sensor plugs and harness . My BUDDY didn't show w the IDS scanner so I didn't get anything done to it after work today. Can the IDS check the tcm module?

Yeah, ids should be able to pull codes on it, see if it needs updated, etc. I have only seen them damaged when aftermarket programming goes haywire, so you could have an issue there. And my bad, i had my head firmly planted in my ass, there isnt a range sensor connector... The bolt for the main plug wa tight, and connector fully seated though, right?

Yea the bolt in plug went in smooth. And snugged up. I may have screwed myself when I tried to flash back to stock and my tap shifter plugged in w the piggy back OBD 2 port. And I tried to flash thru that port and it clearly stated in the owners manual to never flash or scan thru it. It only supports a monitor like my edge insight.

Sounds to me the trans is installed fine. Plus he likely learned a bunch. The tapshifter is probably what screwed him over. Kudos for him for doing it himself. Sorry you are too lazy to do things like that.

Pulling and installing the trans went smooth as pie. I had a brain fart when I initially tried to flash the truck with an additional OBD II port in place. (I knew better) The next problem was the internal range sensor was bad and created its own little problem as they do. That part was replaced by the trans builder and all is good. Problems arise sometimes and may make it seem not worth my time but my son (14 year old) and I learned and finished the swap. I would do another swap no questions asked. Not a big deal. Thanks for all the input and I will keep this thread going with the build.

Maybe I missed something, but is it up and running? Last post makes it sound like it is, but doesn't specifically say.

Does a built trans require any tuning changes to work correctly or more efficiently ? I think I read somewhere that the tunes may need to be tweeked in some way. BTW my seats should arrive tomorrow.

In that case I would suspect he didn't do any pump mods and used factory solenoids. Shouldn't need tunes adjusted if you are happy with shift points/ lockup etc.

What tuning are you running?

I always used Lexol and had good results. It worked better than the griots stuff IMO.
