Well done I see more progress.
The rotating mass reductions you have pursued add up to ~60#, I'd venture to guess equates to ~500-1000# of static weight reduction
The 04.5-07 pistons have some special design for emissions
Non EGR CR Cummins duse not exist.
I found this out when researching parts for an 05 medium duty Cummins with a misbehaving EGR valve the wealth of information that is the internet could only tell me I was not seeing what was in front of me and EGR hit the Dodge/light duity in 04 the physical valve didn't show up until the 08.
Re cam the motor is the only way to remove the non cooled exhaust gas non-recirculating system. By closeing the exhaust valve early they were able to trap spent hot exhaust in the cylinder displaces fresh air on intake stroke making a valveless EGR
, I can pull 6th @35 mph running ~900 rpms. never a complaint unless the hill is too steep
How is the 64mm(?s364?) Spooling ,at the extreem low rpms?on grades(5-9%) my 91 with an hx35w12 with a Quick Spool Valve sends in a written complaint using smoke signals running less than 1263 RPM( 55mph in 6th 2ndOD.61, 3.55rear 31.7"tire) due to insufficient air to make power from the fuel causing a rich condition and overly high egts for throttle position and speed 850-1050 ,by 1050@10psi is turning black, drop to 5th(.71 1470 ) 650-750. Or run 66mph (6th.61 1516)and she spools 15-20psi depending on the grade.
IAT 70 ,that would be a wet dream -2to 20 above ambient with the itty bitty baby intercooler the first gen came with.worst seen so far this winter (its been mild) 11 air filter, 120 post compressor, 9f IAT @70mph crossing the ID/MT Continental Divide pass

My setup (AFE exhaust mani + the HTT 64mm HE351) starts spooling (off ambient) at 900ish rpms. Seems like the only time there is no spool is off throttle.

Update: Went back and entered in all the fuel receipts that I have in hand, (have them all, just not in one spot) averaged the monthly mpg across all months & over 32K miles the truck is averaging 21.1 mpg. The last 3 months on winter fuel in the PNW area (mild winter), it continues to average 21.

My 2nd air dam mount broke last week, for the 2nd time. Going to need to fab up a better mount for it. Interestingly, it is on the same side as the last time (passenger side) which is telling me there is more force on that side for some reason. Kind of a head scratcher, if anyone has any input on it I'm all ears.

other aero mods still in place, wheel wells, rear tire spats...the bed seals & rear bumper are off, need a permanent solution to the rear bumper issue.
