    Been a lurker for a long time, finally have something worth posting. Purchased my truck from 1st owner and he had the installation packet from when he put it on the truck himself! Lost it in a move, and just found it again. I know how difficult it is to find stuff for our old turbo kits on IDIs, so I hope this helps!! Also found a product evaluation packet, it's also pretty rad to look through when these trucks were top of the line.

    Installation Packet: link
    Paraphernalia: link

    *Not sure how to upload it says file is too large, so I'm just gonna give a link to my Google Drive, it's a PDF you can download. If anyone wants it as images or uploaded in another way let me know!

    Good find on the manual. Thanks for sharing it with us all. It seems better, published as a single unit, than the one I've sent to numerous members of the forum. I think mine may be an earlier edition, with bits and pieces thrown in from other sources.

    I've got yours bookmarked for reference.

    That's me!
    I did, however, get a warning for running 72 in the truck in my avatar ... only a mile or so from where I took off ... It was hard to hide my since of accomplishment / pride from the trooper as I didn't know that truck would run 70!

    Those C6 trucks were real dogs. Especially with 3.55 gears. They weren't great, but at least it was an automatic option. Disclaimer: the previous statements were only the opinion of the author.

    For the record: My 0 - to (purported) 72 was running T-19, 35's and 4.10 gears. She's just "big boned".

    With the T-19 and the 35" tires, I can believe that the truck could go that fast. I'd also bet that it was getting close to being topped out as far as speed goes. The C6 was a fine transmission behind a gas engine, but the built in slip was AWFUL behind an IDI. An E4OD wasn't too bad (as long as all of the electrics were good). The lock up convertor made a huge difference. The four speeds weren't too bad, but I've always preferred the way that a ZF5 shifts.

    Yes sir ... I was runnin' "flat out". Didn't gain much speed in the last 1/4 mile, then the trooper was up my pipe ... decided to come out of the throttle a little... let him out of the smoke screen.

    My N/A 7.3 IDI short bus can cruise 70 all day. I think it's geared super low... Kinda screaming at those speeds, but it gets up there happy enough. Mileage falls off a cliff over about 60 though. Flat ground I can get it up to almost 80 if I'm patient enough haha
