@Blueox01 Your pics almost make me wish my truck had 500,000 instead of just crossing 135K! Looks  beautiful. If you got more pics of the restoration lets see em! 

 Go back to page 15, lots posted.

Havn't even started the truck yet, when I was young and built a chevy 327 from a vette, I never finished the rest of the 67 Chevlle SS it went into because it was too fun too drive, so waiting to finish this project before I even fire up the engine. I had this trans in before I burned a hole in #6 cyl, loved it, very rarely had too pull it out of 6th. but I'm getting closer to finishing, got one new fiberglass fender fitted, just need to get the other done, paint them and the hood.

Anyone ever see one of these?

Paint looks better in pics than in living color.

Have over 700 pictures, think people might get bored. Be glad to post whatever stage or component that interests you.

You have me wanting to buy an aux trans and put it in, but will have to wait, Double OD would help with mileage when deadheading, plus just fun to play with the gears!

 Alternator fried. I measured the alternator at 433*F when it popped. It took out the PCM I'm figuring being the new alternator is dead and not charging. Carrying tools but does no good when you don't have the parts to fix the problem. Fresh alternator and 11.2 volts. Nope, it's not charging. Failed on the field lead side being I'm going to assume the PCM is cooked too.

New to this community. Just thought I’d introduce myself. The amount of knowledge in this forum is amazing compared to other places. I’ve owned my 01 since 2008 and just went through a major overhaul. Just couldn’t get myself to give up and get a new truck when this one has always been so good to me. I have learned a ton rebuilding this beast and I have a ton of learning to do with the V2 Adrenaline so I’m sure I will be asking questions soon enough! Thanks again for allowing me to be a part of the Moparman forum!

Nice truck. If that was a head gasket replace I'd love to hear your knowledge on that project. I'm in fear that will be my next hurdle as I'm approaching 200k. Looks like you were able to keep the AC connected and not lift the cab to clear the head. Please enlighten us all.

i would not worry about 200k. I am at 450k and just now facing it. though I could be pretty lucky.

Thanks guys! That’s where I’m at too rotohead, right at 200k. I had a local transmission shop build me a bomb proof tranny and while he was in there he found that it was seeping coolant at the rear of the head. Not bad but I thought I’d rip the head off and replace the head gasket. It just kind of morphed from there. It’s always had an oil leak that I assumed was from the vacuum/ps pump assembly but turned out after  rebuilding the pump it was the tappet cover...so out came the injection pump. Got a Keating  machine tappet cover and fuel bracket delete. I wasn’t going to put the old injectors back in so I got new injectors, then needed a Quad to control fuel to the HY, then decided I needed a turbo and exhaust manifold too! Haha It was a slippery slope for sure!

Then ended up replacing all sensors, ARP’s, and an S&B intake elbow which hasn’t arrived yet. The K27 was not a drop and go turbo...both the exhaust and compressor side had to be clocked to get the feed and drain in the correct orientation then needed to get a fleece turbo drain cause the stock drain had a split in it. Then had to shave and thin out a portion of the wastegate bracket and grind on a bolt to get orientation correct. Manifold is awesome as are the Stage8 bolts with tabs to prevent backing out. We will see how they hold up! Also made a breather for the 12an fitting off the tappet cover and also ran 3/4 inch hose from the front breather into the breather as well.

Yes, it never ends, but it pays back when driving down the road :burnout:

On more than one occasion I thought of getting something else myself but for whatever reason I'm still:truck:

 

V2 is not bad once you figure it out, time consuming for sure to tune just right. But you can get it pretty close to start with. Then it's fine tuning from there. 

 

Good looking truck and this place is great, makes some bad days much better just bsing here. Welcome to the club. 

 

Edit 

Nice house too, but what's funny is you'll get more compliments on your old truck then on the new house, from a real man at least ha ha.
