Pretty good, even full of air. Started on the 4th crank. I was sure the H2E down pipe was 4". Nope 3.5. Already jerked out the stock exhaust. Need a 3.5' to 4" adapter. This thing is LOUD going down the road with only a downpipe. Even louder when I jump on the throttle. Turbo is almost as loud as the exhaust.

I am not as quick as I used to be. Took me three long days, sticks, studs, springs, and a turbo. I was honestly thinking it would be one long day and one short day.

Yeah it always seems to take longer with these trucks than you think it is going to. I am in the process of pulling my engine back out again.

Congrats on the nice job! I've got the parts ordered to do the same thing over the next couple of weeks. I'm doing studs, springs, pushrods, 250/100's, Adrenaline, 6.0 trans cooler, new radiator, fan clutch and up pipes. My topside creeper just got delivered but I am still not looking forward to laying my 40+ year old arse across the engine bay for this install. If you dont mind, I may need to pick your brain if I get stuck.

Not a problem. Block off a lot of time for it.

Yea, I'm taking a couple of weeks off, but the wife is on me to get our pool house built before she hosts some hen party next month.
