    cold engine quiet

    Next time I have a scan tool handy all check it out.
  2. Maybe a silly question but I'm curious if anyone can explain to me why my 98 24v is much quieter at cold startup than when its warm? Theres barely any fuel knock at all and its really smooth sounding. Once it warms up and during the warmer months it just sounds like most other 24v. I run 2 stroke oil in my fuel. It would be great if I could figure out how to make it sound so smooth all the time.

    DT/DOR track bar

    I already have an adjustable bar built on a Chevy that doesn’t need to have it so I’m hoping I can use that hence the need for measurements. Okay great thank you! Is your truck stock height or how much lift does it have?

    DT/DOR track bar

    I’m specifically looking for bar length when using the DOR/DT style mount. It’s a straight bar not the typical 3rd Gen conversion. I tried to deal with DOR but they didn’t want to do anything but sell me the entire kit. I ended up getting just the mount from DT which still costed nearly $500 after shipping and US-CDN conversion.
  6. Can anyone tell me the length from bolt to bolt of a DT or DOR track bar on a stock to 3” height. I have the DT bracket and am going to make a bar for it but want a ball park measurement before I install the bracket.

    Edge comp

    Okay thanks. The one I found was for an 01 and mines a 98.
  9. Looking at picking up a used tuner. I notice some tuners are year specific for 24v. I’m trying to figure out if the edge comp is or isn’t year specific from 98.5-02?
  10. I was having the same issue. Once warm it wouldn’t start unless factory lift pump was disconnected. New VP solved that. Now I have a FASS on a relay but no delay and it starts up after one revolution at 15ish psi. I did the same thing wiring the pump up to a switch.

    Power lost intermetant

    It might be worth your time to check/clean any grounds you can trace down too. I replaced diode in my alternator and cleaned up all my grounds and battery connections and it was suddenly like a whole new truck. I was having all kinds of driveability issues before that.

    Auto trans slipping

    Thanks everyone I think I can be fairly positive it’s running through the converter. In 3rd lockup when rolling on the throttle the rpms will flare right up as soon as the turbo lights but wheel speed doesn’t follow suit. @DynamicI was planning to go with the DPC triple disk and your towing VB. Anything else that’s considered a must do without actually tearing the trans apart? The only future plans for the truck are possibly some injectors in the 60hp range. It’s my DD and I tow either a 3000lb boat or 25’ travel trailer.

    Auto trans slipping

    I am mostly worried that I will spend $2k on a TC and valvebody, do all the work to swap them out and then still be right where I started. I suppose that’s just the chance I take without fully building the trans. In theory it should be in good shape with low mileage and it has had a really easy, low effort life thus far.
  15. 1998 24v 47re trans. 100k miles on the clock. Edge EZ, bhaf, and exhaust. I am having some slipping which which I notice when I roll on the throttle at highway speeds in overdrive with the TC locked up. I was convinced it was pushing through the lockup clutch and I was about ready to order a TC and valvebody. Now I’m not 100% convinced that will solve my issue and thinking maybe it’s my overdrive gear that’s slipping?? Is it common for overdrive to slip in these trans? I can turn off OD but then I have trouble even telling if and/or when the TC even locks up. Does anyone have any tips on how to really narrow it down?
