    WH1C/HX40 Hybrid

    So, I've been toying with the idea of an intercooled hybrid turbo setup for the winter. I know most people will go with an actual HX35/HX40 hybrid, but I've been looking into doing a WH1C/HX40 hybrid since I can pick up the turbo itself for fairly cheap, and get a 60mm wheel and housing from...

    Still not starting

    So, about a week and a half ago, my starter decided to die. I ordered a brand new AC Declo one, and put it in yesterday. After charging the batteries AND boosting them with another vehicle, we still couldn't get her to turn over. All of my connections are tight, and all of my fuses are good, and...

    Loss of Boost/Harder Starting - Possibly related?

    Hey all, Over the past few days, I've noticed that my truck has been harder to start whether it's cold or warm, and that I'm not boosting as much as I was as soon as last week. I was pushing 22psi, and now I've gotta force it to get to 15psi. I've considered that the issue might be a bad ops...

    HX40 vs. ATT

    So, I've come to the recent realization that my HX35 isn't really cutting it in the airflow department, so I'm considering upgrading to a slightly larger turbo. I've got two options, both of which have similar prices to me right now; a genuine HX40 with a 16cm housing, and an ATT. Either way...

    6.5L ATT Intake Plenum

    I've got a shortened intake plenum for an ATT/Holset setup. Picked it up a few months ago for my holset setup, but I've decided to go in a different direction. Asking $30+Shipping

    6.5L Heath Max-E-Tork Towing EPROM

    Looking to get rid of my Heath Max-E Tork Towing EPROM since all of the bugs have been worked out with my custom HX35 tune. It's written for a stock turbo, and is great for that, and it even spooled the holset well. Asking 250obro

    HX35 Wastegate Controllers?

    Waste gate controller came apart at some point within the last few days, and I'm now only pushing 10-12psi instead of the 18 i should be seeing with it. I plan on wiring it shut this weekend to get me through the semester until I can build another one. What, if anything have other HX35 users...

    Major Oil Leak/Replacing turbo oil drain line?

    So from what I can tell, my turbo oil drain needs to be replaced. I've got what appears to be about 3-4 quarts on the ground, and it appears to have come from the oil drain hose near the block.:banghead::wtf:Censored My friend suggested getting a flexible metal drain hose like they use for 3rd...

    A Poor College Student's Daily Project Update

    So, I figured I'd just create a thread for updates on my build so that I'm not running around making a bunch of different ones. Update #1: Fuel/oil leak have gotten fixed. The cause for the fuel leak was the injector return line not being fully tightened down at the FFM. The oil leak was that...

    Build Update/Fuel leak help

    So I got the HX35 on, and installed the FTB kit. Overall remarks are that it's a bit peppier, a little smokey, and good on power. However, I've got a small fuel leak. The weird part is that it doesn't leak while running, just when I shut the truck down after running it. As far as I can tell, all...

    Pensacola Diesel Injectors

    Hey guys, I know that I need injectors, and I've been looking at getting bosch ones from either leroy or heath. However, I saw that Pensacola diesel has injectors for less than what it'd cost for new bosch ones. I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for, but I figured I'd see if anyone...

    Feed The Beast - What have you guys seen

    So, I've gone and purchased everything that I need for FTB on my truck. To those of you who are running it on a ds4 pump, what benefits have you seen, and what should I expect to see? I'm running a Heath Max-E-Tork tune, Walbro FRC-10 from Leroy Diesel, stock GM-4 set to 15psi, open exhaust, and...

    No start in the cold, bad glow plugs/relay?

    So it happened again today, this time after work. Took almost 2 hours of keeping it on a charger to keep the batteries from draining, as well as a couple of heat guns, a fair amount of WD40, and a lot of cursing. At least my coworkers are always willing to help. I load tested the batteries after...

    Peninsular 3" Intake Plenum

    Who on here is running a 3" intake plenum from Peninsular Diesel, and how did you hook up the sensors? I'm looking into buying one for my truck, but I've heard of people having issues with sensor placement and boost leaks

    Ordered a Heath Tune

    So I finally sold my half decent Hypertech tune, and I'm picking up a Heath Towing tune basically because it's better than what I was running before. What can I expect to see in terms of improvements? I'm also planning on putting an HX35 on my truck relatively soon, and even though this tune is...
