      Thought about updating this post. This is basically a copy from my build thread in the Rado forum. I got the head in place and test fit the header. If I grab the cat back and shake it, there is...

      Yeah, I assumed you were checking for power at the harness side. With your meter, put one lead on the red-yellow wire and the other lead on the engine block. You most likely DO have power to the...

      You can't check voltage ONLY at the connector. This is because the ECU is the ground for the entire injector harness and it only provides a ground when the engine needs fuel. If you measured 12...

      Are you even aware that farm diesel is dyed and not taxed?

      In New England I'd say only 25% of the stations have diesel. It's kind of a pain. When you head towards camping areas you're more likely to find kerosene pumps. :facepalm:

      Edit: "camping area"...

      The hubs were 4x100. They were redrilled to 5x100. The wheels were 5x112 so those also had to be redrilled to 5x100. They were simply counterbored to the pattern and I use custom countersunk...

      Thanks. It might be a great decision to buy them but then again, it might be a horrible decision. It comes down to how much patience and desire to learn that you have. Good luck. :thumbup:

      Thanks for the tips, mang. I'll try it anyways. Got nothing to lose but a couple hundred bucks. If it's not that effective, I'll add a single bigger one before the cat. And maybe even try those...

      Yeah, for real. And I'm not going to do the welding. Having a pro with a TIG do it. His specialty is cast iron welding so I think he can handle this.

      No way, I rarely see other diesels and don't expect to see another one with this combo. This was bought new from a dealer in Seattle....now at 85k miles. It's had a swirl motor fail due to oil...

      Thanks! I just told myself that it had to *break in*. Haha, sometimes I should just stop and think. Unfortunately the fiber gasket seemed to not compress enough, I dunno. Big leak out the back...

      Oh yeah. Cool. :thumbup: Thanks, man. I learned something that makes way too much sense: When swapping cams, install them without the lifters in first to check for interference!

      Ours does but it has the Overland package. They go up and down for some reason when turned on. Must mean they're self leveling or something. The only pictures I have below. The extended warranty...
