    Do it all tire recommendations

    I had a similar experience with the Goodyears I mentioned earlier. I felt like I was driving a boat, plenty of lateral movement. It's caused by aggressive treads, with softer material. I could move each lug around with my thumb. As the tires wear, the height of the lugs get shorter and stability...

    Early 6.7 with a 10 speed

    With how intertwined PCM BCM and TCMs are in the newer vehicles, I'm trying to wrap my head around how this would be done. Pre-6.7 a manual transmission PCM could be used with a stand alone TCM, but 6.7 wasn't used with a manual. I wonder if there's a way to use medium duty parts? Didn't they...

    Those who have gone to 2005+ axles

    They have different circuits front and rear, and a proportioning valve to allocate pressure. When I said traditionally, I should have been more specific and said from disc/drum to disc/disc. On top of that, master cylinders can vary in size pretty dramatically, which changes the pressure ratio...

    Those who have gone to 2005+ axles

    I don't have definite answers, but traditionally swapping from drum to disc the master needs swapping, along with the proportioning valve. Drum vs. Disc takes a different amount of fluid to operate, and iirc drums need more pressure sustained in the lines to stay adjusted correctly. Something...

    Latest mods for 23x/100s

    Yep. At least in '15 Tim did. I really don't know what they are, because didn't he say long ago that he rated them at certain parameters, where other builders rated max flow above what was possible in truck. However he said it, I thought he was saying they would flow more than others 238s...

    Latest mods for 23x/100s

    Quick recap, I already have 230/100s (yes P.I.S.), 1st Gen KC38R (late '15 W/1.0 housing), new up-pipes, Hydra, full 4" exhaust. I also have a stage 2 Wyse 4R100 on order. Currently also have the original cnc 4-line feed, but I did something transferring from one truck to another so 1 line...

    Latest mods for 23x/100s

    Injectors are 230/100s. Sorry, I probably should have also thrown that in the text. The 4000 RPM was just an example of a threshold, not what I'm looking for. Like saying: above 40 psi boost you need head studs. I just want to understand at what point you need certain parts/upgrades. Years ago...

    Do it all tire recommendations

    I'm not sure if it's still the case or not, but Goodyear offered some of their tires with a choice of compounds. I apparently got the soft ones because they lasted 22k on my 01 ZF6 untuned, ladder rack and 15-20% towing. 28k on a tuned '00 Cummins. Half gone at 12k on a V10 Excursion. I...

    Latest mods for 23x/100s

    Looking for current thinking I guess. This will be my '00 Forged rod Ex, 3.73 and stock to 33" tire. Towing won't be often or too heavy, even if I get another TT it'll be 12k or less. Elevation around here is around 700 ft. That out of the way, I have the injectors already, and currently have...

    Gutted cab

    I think No Spark Innovations? is starting to make stand alone harnesses. Although I think he needs you to send him a harness for him to modify. Saw it on the old IG. Never inquired. And @Magnum PD I think autocorrect may have bit you in your signature. Unless your HGs really are only for show...

    Compound turbo problems

    Let me start by saying I have no experience, just quite a bit of reading... Take that for what it's worth... Do you have a gate around the 369? It almost sounds like that gate is bypassing the 369 at lower speeds, then both chargers are seeing enough to get moving at higher RPM. It's my...

    Front left hub noise

    In for results. Throw it in and try it already... I don't want to be patient I mean let us know

    Front left hub noise

    Oh yeah. The ball is loose! From what I remember that should be secure to the longer portion of the shaft. That's a definite issue. Not sure what whoever rebuilt it would say about that. I wonder if they just let it ride? Or if it isn't serviceable so a new shaft was necessary? Dunno but that...
