    Bolt on turbo kit

    My 80 was totaled several months ago by an idiot in a Durango and my Witts End kit is up for sale in the classifieds if anyone is interested. https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/nor-cal-complete-80-series-wits-end-turbo-kit.1232988/

    SOLD  Nor Cal - Complete 80 series Wits End Turbo Kit

    I ordered this kit from Joey way back in April of 2019 when he first opened the site to pre-orders. I patiently waited for almost another year and around April of 2020 I received three large Wits End boxes. Cut to about a month later and my 80 got badly sideswiped while parked by some absolute...

    Parting Out Denver: 1997 LX450 Black Partout No lockers

    Take your time...once you get it out just snap a few pics of it if you can. Mine is missing bolts and I just want to make sure yours doesn't look like someone has taken it apart. If it looks all complete, then let me know what you want for it. Thanks.

    Parting Out Denver: 1997 LX450 Black Partout No lockers

    I have one, but my motor assembly is missing internal parts and I can't make it work with the new mast. As long as yours is all there except for the mast, I'm hoping between the two I can make one work. So if you have pics of it I'd like to check them out and let me know how much you want for it.

    Bolt on turbo kit

    Appreciate all that you are doing Joey. A few cruisers for sale in my area, several of these have been posted for a while with the prices steadily going down on them. Maybe one of them will work for you. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/d/san-bruno-1996-land-cruiser/6849653635.html...

    Bolt on turbo kit

    Thanks for clarifying, just need to remember to treat the LC like my first gen Cummins Ram and let it idle for a minute or two if I've been playing around with it right before I get to wherever it is I'm going. Being a new turbo, I assume it has a provision for water cooling and possibly...

    Bolt on turbo kit

    This is good to know as mine is a pretty much stock cooling system with an old aftermarket CSU brass radiator which I think is out of business now and I never see anything over 190 here in the Bay Area. But I have yet to really run it in the dead of summer with the AC going too. Speaking of...

    Bolt on turbo kit

    Well I decided it would be dumb to not take advantage of this opportunity. Besides I've always thought the L/C would be great with a turbo and having it be legal for Cali is the best thing I can imagine....just placed my order for one. Hope my HG and trans will handle the upgrade and stay in one...

    Bolt on turbo kit

    So hows demand for the turbo kit been so far? I'm still looking at the numbers and deciding if I can buy one or not. Do I need to rush or are there still plenty of kits available?

    Bolt on turbo kit

    A couple of questions, if they've been answered already please point me to the page #. I assume the trucks will need to run premium gas with the turbo setup? Not a big deal, but figured it would be good to know. If we are unavailable Friday at 6PM, how long does the pre-order period go for...

    Oil Burn Between Oil Changes

    I changed my oil for the first time since purchasing about 1,000 miles ago. With the exception of a puff of oil smoke from the valve stem seals when its cold, it hasn't moved off the full mark on the dipstick. 234K and I'm using 10W30 Mobil 1 high mileage full synthetic.

    Clogged catalytic converter... options?

    Just put the Magnaflow cats and new Denso 02 sensors on mine about a month ago. I was throwing a PO420 for cat efficiency and after replacing the O2's I would still occasionally get the code. I tested the cats and they were pretty much shot. What are you failing for on smog? HC or CO?
