I really like the LED lights.

I have a set of JW Speaker LED's for mine.

Any reason you didn't shoot the intake pipe straight across the valve covers to the turbo? Seems like straight would be MO POAH!

The hood didn't close... had to go toward the firewall where the motor leaned back more to get across the valve covers without hitting the underside of the hood.

Modified the old filler neck location to have a modern fill/cap/ability for locking cap and also had a chance to get the box painted and put on and go for a little rip afterwards (Video Link also included).

More progress to come... still have mirrors and the tailgate to paint, clean up and tuck wiring once I finish calibrating speedo VSS etc. and after that we start on-road shakedown.

VIDEO of the first 35mph run around. M715 First Run Out Video - YOUTUBE









The indicator lights that are on are *blue=brights, red(off)=elec fans running, amber = hood light amberLED halo-ring is on, white=hood light spotlight is on. (also left and right turn signal indictators also.)

The brakes are OUTSTANDING. 4 wheel disc + hydroboost...the pedal is smooth, firm, linear... and VERY quick to stop the truck. No more pulls to one side etc. like non-adjusted drums.

Steering is effortless 1 finger even with the weight of the motor. It's also only 4.5 turns lock to lock vs. the non-powered version 7.5-8?

I will be taking leaves out of the rear suspension I have a feeling. The front now rides VERY plush due to the extra weight of the cummins.

So far so good... but only have 2-3 miles of subdivision putzing around.
