I'm using the DENSO alternator w/remote regulator for now however; when I do my HVAC using a FUMMINS mid mount compressor mount I'll do a high output alternator and tap rpm signal from there.Fellow Traveler, what will you be using for an alternator? I am debating on just using the dodge one & trying to wire it correctly or adapting like a CS144 onto the cummins.
Also, have you looked into making the grid heater work in conjunction with the key switch? I am currently doing this same swap on my 96 K3500. I removed all the 6.5 glow plug wiring & traced the glowplug solenoid wire back to the fuse box. I believe this thicker orange wire is what powers the glowplugs, but I am not sure. I will have to look at a diagram if I can find it.
Any other ideas or advice you've found on wiring/electrical, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
Good to hear you're at a point where you're doing shakedown runs!Running open downpipe but waiting on an FTE swirl core resonator to install just after the downpipe, everything I've read about it being installed just after the down-pipe is excellent for eliminating drone and other nasty resonance in the exhaust, I'll be ceramic coating the FTE both inside and out before install.
I can't wait to get it installed....the exhaust I have is stainless but low grade that held up well until the sea water ingress I drilled the lower sections of the exhaust pipes and muffler and flushed it with tap water and salt neutralizer then took my shop vac to blower side and left it blowing through the system for a few days. however: I'll determine if I need to replace it soon or not after everything is back together.Good to hear you're at a point where you're doing shakedown runs!
I've been running an FTE 4" x 30" resonator/muffler on my Tahoe for 5 years now. It tames the exhaust note and I have never had any drone. I painted mine with DEI high-temp silicone exhaust paint and it is still holding up well in my climate.
