    year 1 is done

    |Just finished my first year with my truck. It started out running terrible and now purrs like a kitten..

    My list of changes in the last year:

    • Adjusted the kickdown so it will finally shift above 2000rpm ( the guy before me didn't know how to adjust it after repairing the tranny
    • New MAF sensor
    • New Plugs/Wires/Cap/Rotor
    • Milled the exhaust manifold and welded up a crack to stop the leaks
    • Added an electric fan as a backup for the hot summers here in Ontario
    • 4 tires
    • Front brakes
    • Front Caliper
    • Complete clean of the EGR valve (completely plugged)
    • New Cat
    • new tailpipe
    • new oxygen sensor


    On the list for the next year
    • Re-ring the engine (bore if needed .. then I will up the compression)
    • Balance shaft removal
    • Valve job
    • New valve springs
    • Mill the head
    • New water pump/oil pump
    • New replacement cam or regrind the factory cam
    • Build a custom header
    • Swap in an 8 3/4 or Ford 8.8 with axles drilled for the 6 bolt rims
    • Calvert style bars
    • Find an NOS seat cover and foam to replace the worn one in the truck


    This engine has 240K KM and the valve seals leak so it's time for a rebuild
