There are some very creative ways to hold onto stuff like that when you only need to take small, slow cuts. Sometimes it makes sense to cut up some oak and *glue* it onto the casting and working...

Not for a 6V92, but yes. You don't want to make them out of stainless tubing, that's for sure. It moves around way too much and it would be a cracking nightmare. I'd get my stock manifolds...

I guess we got off on a tangent here! I will get an appropriate turbo built or bought, and I will most likely build an air-to-water intercooler (or a CAC). I haven't seen a factory intercooler that...

Doesn't a BMC 37 weigh like 32,000 lbs? What's an SP36 weigh? They are geared to both go faster and have an extra gear in the trans. So they are down about 6,000 lbs, have 1 more gear, and some...

I hate to disagree but the 8.3 isn't all that. It's a good reliable engine and it has more response down low, so more power under the curve, but that's it. An 8.3 swap into an FC, which weighs less...

Maybe some don't know, but I have retrofitted the LXI-style PWM-controlled hydraulic fan setup on my coach. I also installed a higher flowing fan blade and I set it up to spin the fan much faster. ...

I have a lot of cooling system overhead since I did all the fan hydraulic stuff, so I think I'm good there for a nice bump.

I don't know - do you know what alternator is on it now? We can figure it out. Almost all of them use only a couple of different mount types that are generic across almost all alternators.

Be careful, those are probably Chinese clones. The real deal is under $200 though and there are millions of low-mile takeoffs for $150 or so.

That's not what I meant. I meant to drop the whole thing out so you're just left with a hole in the ceiling. There are a million cheap LED strips you can screw into the existing housing.
