That's a nice looking truck. I like the wheels on there. And it appears to have a Factory turbo on it. Oh, sure. Now I see your other post with the engine pics. So how much did you end up giving for it and how does it run/start?

Runs like a top, barely bump the key and fires up strong! Paid 6k for it.
I think you ok then.
What a beauty!
Congrats on the new ride!
Nice looking rig!
And let the obsession begin. Seriously though that is a very clean pickup. Good find, and I hope you have lots of fun using and potentially modifying the beauty.
Any suggestions on how to gain a few more hp’s Are greatly appreciated. I know I will change exhaust, ip, injectors and glow plugs to get started.
Intercooler is a fantastic upgrade but I would start by getting a boost and egt gauge and turning the pump up. From there you can start bolting on parts
good to see not all of them are beat to death.
check around to see if the Banks downpipe for the OEM turbo is still availible. iirc Summit has a deal on them. if I have time this evening, I'll look.
what more you can do? a bigger pump and injectors and a intercooler is in order.
Thanks so much fellas, now Ive got to get to work to pay for all this stuff
I would say the biggest choker that is currently on that engine would be the downpipe. Go with a banks dp like towcat mentioned and it’ll really wake up that truck.
If injectors & IP are original, call Mel (Conestoga Diesel) for a baby moose & new injectors and you’ll really have a strong running idi.
