    “The 6.9” project thread

    My issue was that it was less than 7 psi even hooked up to the block. At this point I think I have it all good I just need to put the oil cooler back on. The old oil cooler would idle at 15 psi all day with the gauge pulling from the turbo. So I’d like to just get the pressure back up to around...

    I’ve been absent from my regular life for the past week. My girlfriends’ sister got married in Washington. We stayed on San Juan island. It was very enjoyable just going around and taking everything in. I used to travel a lot when I was little but I don’t remember it well. Since I’ve gotten...

    I know how frustrating that is. I never got my old one to seal for very long. I think at some point there gets to be too much real estate to try and seal up.

    I’ve piled up the Starbucks drive through many a time with the ol’ 6.9. I enjoy myself a good mocha cookie crumble Frappuccino LOL. I don’t know if you guys out east have even heard of Dutch Brothers but It is pretty big out on the west coast. I usually will prefer them over starbucks most of...

    Road draft tube

    So here’s my take on the draft tube thing. I have never tested it or anything. I had a draft tube for about 2 months. I noticed that my truck had more blow by. I also noticed a difference in idle. I think that an engine needs at least some sort of vacuum on the crank case to keep everything...

    I’m sorry, this doesn’t have to do with my truck…. I am very much enjoying it up here. San Juan island is beautiful.

    I am very excited. I used to live in Oregon and I really miss that type of environment/scenery

    I believe that fel pro switched their gasket material. The last oil cooler gaskets I got were the paper type, now all I see are these. I like these more because they’re more stiff. Easier to mess around with without bending. Tonight we will be making our nice 15 hour drive to Roche Harbor...

    So what did you do with your truck today?

    We have been extremely lucky with ours. The company I work for buys all of our work trucks from Fastenal. They’re all the 5.7 hemi’s. I’m very surprised we haven’t had any issues because I feel like I see a lot of stories like these. The work trucks aren’t necessarily loved on either.

    Tapped hole in ATS collector

    Yes I was worried about it cracking once I started driving it and actually getting everything all hot. So far so good. I got the idea from Wes.

    Tapped hole in ATS collector

    I want to say I kept it a little over 350 degrees with a small torch. Afterwards I wrapped it in a bunch of thick blankets and towels to let it cool slowly. Edit: because you’re using cast rods it honestly will probably end up better than mine since I used mig.

    Tapped hole in ATS collector

    Yup just pre heat it. I welded my entire up pipe like that and it’s been great for about a year. No leaks.

    I am not afraid to admit I did something wrong at all. I did something wrong. I think I stuck the bypass closed somehow and now it has 50 psi at idle. That is an issue. I’ve done this like 4 times with no issues. I’m not sure how I messed it up. At least I know that I was on the right track

    So what did you do with your truck today?

    I got my oil cooler off yesterday. I found that the longer spring seemed to have less strength than the shorter one. The long one is the one that gave me the low pressure. Kinda weird.

    “The 6.9” project thread

    Something interesting. The spring from the regulator that made the super low pressure is a little taller than my original one. Now I’m pretty damn sure this is my issue as it had perfectly fine oil pressure before this oil cooler swap. The deepest I went was taking the heads off as well. But the...
