    Not really. GM says if they get slugged, they need to be replaced as theres a good chance it bent some rods or cracked some reeds inside...

    Do some searches, fairly comm9n for the early ls powered trucks to have this happen with the compressor. It's called slugging. With the...

  4. THEFERMANATOR replied to the thread Powermaster starter and alternators.

    I would have to see proof of a CS-130 doing 95 amps at idle. Stock units only do 25-40 amps, and as you go up in peak output, idle...

    Alot of it depends on the dyno operator. If they're not familiar with a boosted application, they can set the load incorrect allowing it...

    Not sure on that one, but many with diesels have gotten really high numbers from mustang dynos.

  8. THEFERMANATOR replied to the thread Anyone experienced in 7.8L Duramax?.

    I know virtually nothing about them either. Pretty sure they were backed up by the 2000 series, same basic trans, but no internal...

  9. THEFERMANATOR replied to the thread I hope the 6.5L fleet does not revolt.....

    Glow plugs aren't bad to do provided they aren't crusted in. Most just do the bad plugs, but many have found the rest normally die...

    The extension housing is different, but the actual round 6 bolt pattern where the transfer case bolts up should be the same as GM has...

  12. THEFERMANATOR replied to the thread turbo 350 ?.

    Yep, what he said. The thm-350/700r4/4l60/4l60e used a 27 spline output shaft, thm-400 and 4l80E used a 32 spline. You can normally get...
