    For anyone who wants one I have found them at acklands. They are not in there cataloge online or in store. I had them cross reference them from the grainger site and the part number is #WWG5Z763. From what they told me they are stocked in edmonton but not in vancouver. I have two coming on wednesday and will post when I get them to let you all know wether they are the right thing or not.

    lookin forward to what you have to do to make the valve work. I thought I read somewhere it has to be mod' a little bit to work.

    I will buy one as well soon.

    Did you have to modify the valve? Any install info would also be helpful.
    Are you happy with the results?

    Yes I had to modify. I have no time to talk now as I am getting ready for a trip to the cariboo for some fly fishing/ scouting for next week deer opening.

    I will post when I am back and give you the full scoop. Yes I am happy but make sure you have a boost gauge.

    I bought mine from Acklands in poco for 7.50. Pretty easy to modify- brass fitting with barb on one end ( home depot) drill out the other end and epoxy in another barb. Works great on my hj61 - getting about 12 LBS of boost. It think this valve could use a stronger spring though because it is adjusted almost to the max limit to get 12 LBS of boost . I did not turn up the fuel as I my EGT can reach 1300 climbing step hills (like the cut on hwy1 in north van) with the extra boost. I wonder if a previous owner had already turned it up?

    Greasypants was it a noticable increase in power? I assume that there must be going from 7psi to 12psi. Thanks for the info.

    I did not notice much change in power as I never turned the fuel up . I was planning to increase fuel but after installing the pyrometer and seeing how hot it was runnung on steep hills I decided not to touch the fuel ( plus I couldn't figure out which screw to adjust anyway ). With the increased boost it did run cooler and I could push the engine more but it still would reach 1300+ easier then I thought it would so I left the fuel alone.

    Just goes to show how individual trucks are and subjective power is...making peoples experiences different. It was a noticable increase in pulling power on hills going from 8lbs to 10.5 with my 13BT, and I have had a hard time getting temps over 1000 (probe post turbo and I assume you are pre-turbo?) so far with the increased air mass. I am sure it will, and I will have to drive to the gauge...have to try the coquhala soon. Stone noticed quite a difference too, though his is not gauged yet.
