Good to know on the reset while rolling.

Just loaded a tune revision on the drive home I can already tell its better. Ill report back results.

In the mean time I did slap together a cold air pipe. Dropped intake temps down 5*F when at full operating temp.

Not much to update other truck is running great. Tune is much better in terms of random overboost. I can still make it do it if I drive really really angry. Ill revisit this when I put a bigger intercooler on.

It is starting to get cold so I finally hooked up the glow plugs. Just setup a relay and momentary switch. Also made my own harness.

I need to do a cold intake like you did.
I'm using the stock samurai air cleaner and it's a bit sketchy.

4.56 gears are installed. Massive improvement. No lugging at all now and I can now use 5th gear. Next up bumper fab for tire clearance and big FMIC. The goal is to be 10*F above ambient at operating temps.
