    Hopefully it means upgrade! You always need more horses.

    Regardless, it is very pretty now. I'm sure the governor springs have been upgraded for better performance.

    Pump I had wasn’t fueling the turbos; so had to do a swap. In order to swap the pump/front cover, it requires pulling rocker assemblies, tying up the lifters and oulling the cam-just because the cam gear is welded to the cam. Just time and money.

    I hope to turn some wrenches on it today. Had an exhaust leak at the manifold to head. Took the manifold and had it surfaced. IMG_5392.jpg

    Just some upgrades and repairs.

    I’ve had it on the highway but unable to get any fuel out of the pump I had on it/no boost/ wouldn’t spool the turbos up.

    What kind of lift pump do you have on it jb? Are you feeding that injector pump with fuel? I have seen similar issues with bigger boost. The injector pump definitely needs to have a steady pressurized supply.

    It sure sounds like the issues are minimal on such a complex build. Nice jb, real nice!

    Makes sense. Those turbos would definitely need some more fuel to feed the air flow. CAT cams are the same way. We had a couple of hundred 3126 engines that came through us that we had to pull the cams in order to re-seal the front covers. When we mounted the alternator and engine mounts, it would break the seal on the anaerobic sealer, and cause a nagging occasional drip.
