Build Thread:
Current Mods: When I got it the thermostat was bad. Replacing that returned 3-5mpg.

Finally got the pieces together (required searching, duck tape, and Gorilla Glue), and finally installed the bellypan. Also did an 80%+ grill block.

Muffler got cut off while measuring for the new one. It actually had about the same volume level and diesel sound I was going for! Thinking about a tip to get the gases out and calling it a wrap! Net 19lb and turbo spools even faster!

July 2020 built a trailer hitch. Upper Grill block destroyed in rain

Planned Mods: The factory bellypan is missing, hoping to fix that soon.
Planning a grill block before the winter is over.

5/28/20 Had a partial grill block in the winter, didn't get the full on on until summer. Oh well. Next step I want to pay Malone to work on the low/mid maps to wring as much mpg as much as possible. It currently has injectors, injection pump, and a stage 1.5 tune. Because of all the fueling mods I believe there is room to improve.
