new permagrin installed..

so i finally got the GQSSB turbo dialed in and all other issues resolved. this thing is quick! my 8k pound truck now hauls a$$! i have been wanting to start this thread for a while, but other issues have kept me from being able really run the truck. well, all issues were finally taken care of today. new IDM, PCM, TC and some good tuning by the wizzard took care of everything.

Jacob.. thanks for all the phone time and PMs getting the install done. got some great advice from you!

David.. thanks for all the time you spent diagnosing the "ghosts" in my truck. i really dont think anyone else would have figured out that TC issue. they would have blamed it on the bigger turbo. and like you said.. "these cushtom tunes are really fasht and i owe you lotsh of money!"

gonna have the truck at the races friday, so i will post some new times when i can. hoping for low 13s..

early 99 cc 4X4.. 4" exhaust, cushtom tunes, DI hybrids, DI tranny, GQSSB turbo and 3" plenums from WOP,

13.94 @ 96.9mph.. on stock turbo

Re: new permagrin installed..

Glad you finally got all the bugs ironed out. I knew when you called about it not wanting to spool up during a brake stand for a 4wd launch you had some other issue in the truck. Amazing how much a busted sprag in a converter can affect performance of the vehicle.

In talking with David on the phone after the new TC was installed and the tuning was dialed in, even he was impressed with the turbocharger. Believe that was the first one he's been able to drive/tune on the street.

Good luck at the track this weekend, let us know how it turns out

Hey don't go putting words in my mouth now, people might get the wrong impression and think I approve of a WOP product

I currently have codes:
P1272 High to Low Side Open - Cylinder 2
P1275 High to Low Side Open - Cylinder 5

I have replaced the injector coils on those injectors already and those injectors still fail the buzz test. I either need to swap the #2 & #4 injectors to see if the codes follow the injectors, or stay with that cyl. Or, i need to try another IDM to see if thats my problem.

Truck runs fine, but I get an intermittent SES light.
