I just had my oil pan let loose completely the other day (rusted through and epoxy broke) and now I have the whole drive train pulled.
While it is all out I'm planning on fixing a bunch of stuff the previous owner destroyed.
The truck was in an accident and it looks and drives like it's fully rolled over the odo, but I doubt it.
Functionally, the motor isn't too bad. It needs injectors, glow plugs, oil cooler, pan, hpop
, and an exhaust/turbo overhual.
Build date is 3/98 which means it is an early 99.
I'm rebuilding the tranny and replacing the transfer case as it's completely trashed.
I did the 6637 mod when I bought it and it already had a super chip duct taped in when I got it, though, unplugging it made no difference at all.
It had a vacuum powered bd exhaust brake that was seized up and later I removed the cylinder.
It has some kind of bd transmission controller dohicky that doesn't do anything that I know of(previous owner should never be allowed to touch electric wires).
I am planning on doing the hutch and hatchet (or what ever they are called) mod in the fuel tank.
I'm trying to figure out what all I need to do.
I'm very much confused about the difference between the e99 and l99 motors.
I know there is something different about the pedestal, but can't the l99 pedestal and turbo and up pipes be thrown on an e99 block? Or is there an actual difference in the block?
Since everything fuel and intake related is being replaced anyways, I figure it's about time I give my old man some competition... After borrowing my truck to haul something a year ago, my dad sold his 8.1l gasser and bought a '16 f350. He has a chip, intake, exhaust, fuel lift pump. How much injector and turbo do I need to leave his truck choking in my dust?
