    Sepsis is some deadly serious shit, my friend. If it was as serious as you say, you're damned lucky to be alive right now. I'd be considering a lawsuit against that hospital that sent you home to die.

    Glad you're keeping it "game on" and beating back the critters. Looking forward to you finishing.

    Yes, it was very serious and I'm lucky to be here among the living.

    WOW, aside the time I have invested in this conversion all the little issues and additional expenses pile up quickly but considering I've been doing it and not some shop I'm saving BIG BUCKS..

    I'm trying to get an obsolete cooling fan bracket from a 91.5 to 93 CAC/IC Ram Cummins because it will give me more space to install a 3 core radiator if not I'll have to stick with the two core unit....

    I'll be running a big honking air filter BHAF w/prefilter sock until I can get the air canister & snorkel fabricated.

    Hopefully this week I can tow the Burb around some to make sure suspension is settled so I can measure for driveshaft.

    What filter are you planning on running? I noticed an improvement over the Donaldson B085011 when I switched to the AFE replacement which is 72-90058.

    I was thinking Donaldson but if the AFE is better I'll do that. I'm not using an air box for this because it will not be in there for very long and will be right under my hood scoop so I suspect plenty of cooler air at speed.

    Later, I'll be using a rather large 10" diameter x 22" long canister that flows enough for 400 hp, it will have a cobra head intake runner to the turbo compressor then a 5" to 6" oval snorkel.

    Sounds good. I noticed a 3 or 4 psi (I don't recall at the moment, but I think I went from 28psi to 32psi....which freaked me out!) increase in boost when I switched from the Donaldson to the AFE. That was the only change I made, so that told me that the Donaldson was a restriction.
