  1. I am the second owner, and i got it bone stock, maybe they had them adjusted, and yes they were all exactly the same no odd balls.Thanks guys.
  2. Ok thanks i wouldnt think they would tighten up either, just was expecting loose. Thats great then. Thanks for the response.
  3. Just a quick question guys, can the valves be too tight, or tighten up over time?.I went to chck my lash and went through in order, didnt find any loose, but all were on the tight side, the feeler gauge barely fit. I expected to find loose ones after 170k.Thanks for any input.
  4. I just had my trans built with a triple and a so called cheap shift kit that wasnt cheap, i got a transgo tfod diesel, and yes it does change line pressure in all gears. An aftermarket valve body is similar, because there are no moving parts inside, you change the plate, and make new holes just like the aftermarket valve bodies.with my stock trans it would shift 1-2 before 15mph, now if i have a load or a light foot empty its 1500rpm before shift, and the shifts are firmer too, and lock up is amazing throws you back in the seat. There are some cheap kits, but to do the tfod correctly you must use the included sealing rings for the pump, thats why i waited for tear down. You get new manual rod as well that keeps fluid flowing in park. - - - Updated - - - That is also why most of the so called name brand VB for sale need you to send your core in. I know BD does for sure, so they can take it apart and modify it which is basically shift kitting it, and putting their name plate on it. Otherwise they wouldnt need your core.
  5. The best way to tell if the clutch is bad is if it spins freely when cold.Also if you hear it engage and disengage it is working properly. I replaced mine with a severe duty, and it is a bit loud, but what i have noticed is when cold in the morning on start up, it stays locked and loud till i reach operating temp, then i can hear it disengage. I think that is strange, i thought it would not engage until heat was on it. I was told that it requires some heat to disengage, the it will engage again when hit with excessive heat. Keeps me right at 190 all summer long towing or not.
  6. [*] Level 0: Stock Level 1: 40 Horsepower - 150 Foot Pounds of Torque Level 2: 60 Horsepower - 200 Foot Pounds of Torque Level 3: 80 Horsepower - 250 Foot Pounds of Torque Level 4: 100 Horsepower - 300 Foot Pounds of Torque Level 5: 120 Horsepower - 350 Foot Pounds of Torque each of those levels have a sub level with 5 settings, and those control how much low boost fuel. check out edge website, they have a full write up
  7. I would love to, but if i ever wanted to put stock back for smog, i would not have any hose, but yours looks good. I also purchased a tank stainless, with a breather on top, i will see if that works as well when it arrives.
  8. Nope he said he didn't use it cause it could collapse, but i found some 3/4 inch fuel line on ebay, and i may also check with car quest and see if they have it too.
  9. Yes you need a way to keep it locked on decel, cause stock unlocks converter when coasting, which would take away the effect of the exhaust brake.
  10. Mike i have been freaking out since i got back from my trip about blow by coming out of the tube with your mod. I just watched your video, and i just caught my breath, i have that exact amount coming out underneath like your video shows. So its normal? Thanks Mike http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HB3yIoWPLY
  11. Say if mike is not using rubber hose on his, how is he connecting to the breather. I would like to know cause im using heater hose, and dont want it to fail.
  12. Idk exactly, but even with torque management i get more than 9psi when taking off in first.
  13. Should i be concerned-when i checked mint at 170k which was about a month or so ago, they were in spec, they didnt need adjusting. Should the valves been a lil loose with that many miles, or am i over concerned about nothing.
  14. Bars leaks contains sod silicate, problem with using it, is it does not mix well with anti freeze hence the flushing with water. If used correctly im sure it will work till you get the cash to fix it. I understand where you are coming from, i dont have the money to do that either, it would get sold or sit and collect dust. I think you need a engine hoist to remove the head, and a bunch of cash to pay machine shop. no fun.
