    Builds Lexus LX450 Cummins 6bt/NV4500 swap

    What a fun day snow wheeling! Did you get to break trail, the cummins probably didn't even care.

    I remember a big rubber o-ring that goes between the compressor cover and the backing plate. Maybe that let go?

    Builds 4bt cummins 96 FZJ

    Finally read your whole thread, great work on sorting things out. I've been having more haze at idle again and am wondering if my current injectors (SAC 5x12) have loosened up and are not popping where they used to. I'm pretty sure I'll be going back to the VCO style nozzle to clean up the...

    I agree, you should be getting into the 30s with that turbo. Here's a brainstorm of questions. How are your egts now with playing with your AFC live? Wonder if it's something silly like the turbo has the wrong turbine shaft in it which has too much clearance between the blades and the...

    Super happy the 6bt is working out for you this round. That comment from your wife about sticking with it and being happy the truck was back on the road was gold. Glad you've got some great support. Have you checked for any boost leaks on your couplers? What about exhaust gasket leaks...

    Steering knuckle studs mishap at Rocky Uphill in CTW2016

    Hurray for marriage saved! Great to see it on all fours again. Glad I could help and that we finally found a log that held up; seemed like the longer one worked better. Were you able to "buff out" the passenger fender?

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Crazy thing was that was the last big rock on that trail! You had a great crew with you and I'm glad we got you down off the trail. I'm glad you made it home and I hope you weren't in too much trouble getting home a little later. Look forward to the pics.

    3 eyed has it right. Used a mechanical for more accurate numbers but still wanted the dash to work.

    FWIW, I have my electric sender unit (for dash gauge) up by the thermostat along with my electric fan control sending unit. I have my mechanical water temp sensor right in that port in the back of the head.

    Yes, but the concern is that the cummins makes stupid torque very quickly. By 2000rpm you've got just about all the torque it can produce depending on how it's tuned. It doesn't take much throttle to get there. I do look forward to seeing how long you can make the Toyota axles last. Wheeled...

    Builds Dirty Koala Build - Cummins 6BT + NV4500 + HF2AV Swap

    Honestly I think compounds would be too much. I think you can set up a single turbo that will do what you want and tuning can keep you from blacking out intersections. You are already going to have a crazy amount of power to play with. I'm not into smoking out intersections either but a...

    isuzu 6bb1 5.4 litre truck engine in my 80 series

    Max, I think you suggested the right direction. Since he is just a little displacement shy of the cummins 6bt's I stick to a smaller side of the turbine housings that are offered to help spool and cool down EGTs. Diesel 80, I don't know what is offered/available where you live. What you...

    Great pics Chad! Neat to hear the history and see the progression. Will it be at the meeting this month? I still need to look it over and see the pyramid shaped seat base from all that pucker factor!
