  1. Here’s my 01. Had it 6 years. I grew up with these and the 12 valves on a farm back in Michigan. When it came time for a truck, I knew which ones could take abuse and keep on delivering. That said it’s been a long road getting this one back into spec. Couldn’t have done it without this forum. I’m very grateful.

  3. This article is incredibly well written and very valuable. This site rocks!
  4. Ya. Dealership told me my pcm should be replaced. That didn’t do anything except lighten my wallet.
  5. Replacing my pcm didn’t solve my cruise light issue. Dripley had said it was an Ecm issue and was right. I was told my ecm was for an automatic. Again, you need more technical help than I can provide, but if sharing my experience helps, I’ll do it.
  6. That link should get you moving in the direction of AC noise issues. I’ll keep chiming I with knowledge from my experience but when it cones to procedure, other guys here have incredible expertise, so I have to leave it to them.
  7. Alternating current noise from your alternator. Long story short, after replacing and checking so many things trying to get my cruise control to work correctly, I replaced the Functioning ecm. But the new ones kept failing instantly. After three new ecms I finally replaced the functioning alternator. Haven’t had an electrical problem since. Cruise control works as designed. If you click on my profile you will find the thread where I describe all of this in detail. But yes if you aren’t familiar with AC noise and it’s effects on these trucks and you have electrical issues, you’ve come t
  8. I struggled with my 01 6 speed cruise control for a long time. The guys here were right all along. I don’t know what’s exactly going on with your truck, but I strongly suggest taking the AC noise problem seriously and do the ground mod. Lots of electrical problems that you would never guess will be resolved right there.
  9. I'm installing the ARP head studs and I got too curious. I was worried a push rod might get in the way of torquing so I pulled up on the one closest to the bumper. Now, when I put it back in, it won't go down all of the way. Do I need to rotate the engine to get it seated all of the way?
  10. I guess I'll have to hitch on and find out. I read somewhere that 16 18 22 24 26 was recommended for RPM Max timing without studs. So I assume when I do the test, I'm looking for numbers to drop from 18ish down to 16ish?
  11. I’ve gone through the tuning process, and I like my boost level fueling curve. I also think I Ike my pump tap parameters, but I’m not sure my stock clutch can handle much wiretap at all. But all of my timing parameters are set to Mike’s economy settings. I’m going to lose sleep about not having ARP studs. I don’t really understand the timing settings, so I need them explained (dummy style) or I need to know how not to exceed recommendations for stock head studs. I’d like to get studs, but I’ve got to get on the road hauling my 7k pound camper here soon and don’t have the time or cash. I’
  12. My apologies for not understanding this,but when I read the following quotes, I understand them differently. If I set my pump low boost scale psi at 18 (for example) but I set my boost scaling at 20, will my fueling be maxed at 20 psi or at 38? Boost Scaling: 20-40 psi Allows you to set the point at which fueling is maximized based upon boost levels. Setting this to 20 will give you fuel fueling at 20psi, assuming tps min / and maxes are met. Boost scaling is calculated along with TPS scaling so in order to have %100 of fueling both need to be met. This setting defines the
  13. Everything is back together. The tunes I downloaded for the quad are working great with the injectors. The new hx35 has delivered 32 pounds of boost and I haven’t even put the pedal to the floor or dialed in the adjustable boost elbow. And I threw on a pac brake for good measure! Truck is a whole new machine. Thanks to you all and this website for getting me through the scrapes over the years!
  14. Got the truck back. No Quadzilla yet. Should be here by the weekend. Did end up getting 07x .010 injectors. Smoke was manageable. Felt quicker. But I’m afraid the injector tip that broke off may have damaged the turbo on its way out. The boost still builds but the turbo sound is nonexistent and what you can hear sounds quite aspirated. Not sure what to make of it. I’ll take it off and look at it but I’m wondering which turbo I should go with. Should I just get another hx35 or is there something that will fit my upgraded setup better?
